New toy because no crotchgoblins
Awesome dog-mom friend shuts down asinine mombie share
Saw this glorious bastard on my morning commute
My Jupiter attempt
A relative posted this on FB, to be greeted by positive affirmations. Think they'd get mad if I said how much I love being sterile?
This railing ought to hold my weight
Finally grew a leek I can be proud of!
I think I just threw up a little bit
Our first blue orchard mason bee emerged, zone 8b
This is ugly as sin, but I discovered tonight that you can photograph Andromeda through light-polluted skies with a Dob and a phone camera
Mike's daily vasectomy validation - having a kid-free weekend whenever I feel like it
More poor man's astrophotography - M42 and M43
My best friend from high school announced his wife's pregnancy yesterday. This was my response.
Someone was grateful for thawed refills
Moon last night
TIL that the USDA was established in 1394
So satisfying! Cleaning the mirror of a new-to-me 12 Dob
A late summer harvest is a good way to improve my mood.
My wife bought a brand new car yesterday. Sister in law whose Facebook is usually full of how great her kids are is reassured by our 70-year-old retired friend. Thanks for validating our choices again!
That Swan Nebula from a few nights ago, MIC
Finally got somewhere with my EAA rig. My big challenge is getting perfect focus. M42/43.
I told him to go get mom. So, naturally, he bought me a tennis ball.
Making slow progress with EAA - went from a large bright nebula to a small bright galaxy
Who's got two thumbs and is officially firing blanks? This guy!
Our first mason bee emerged, zone 8b
I hope everyone else is having good holidays. Banana for scale.
Finished processing Saturn from Sunday night. Really proud to have captured the Cassini division.
I'm glad leeks overwinter so well. It's vichyssoise for dinner!
If anyone's not sick of the eclipse yet, I animated my photos
All of our friends were having kids, we just wanted to stay relevant!
I really wish she hadn't publicly changed her mind. Just gives the bingoers more ammo. (At least she's not denying the difficulty.)
My new work boots are in much better condition than my three-year-old work boots
May as well jump on the bandwagon. Photographed the moon tonight.
Growing storing onions was a happy accident. Harvested in July, and still firm in February!
Our mason girls have been busy! Glad I gave them a basement this spring.
Finally pulled up some carrots. Quarter for scale.
Took a chance and cleaned my primary. Details in comments.
Kludging a motor onto that Meade I got last week was successful - single 10-second exposure with my phone
Visited a different kind of observatory this weekend with my local club. (Also got in some traditional observation after dark)
Mom A understands, Mom B (see what I did there?) can't not comment
This came up in my Facebook memories today - two years later and it still beats a lawn!
Apparently, I can use frame stacking with the moon. Huh. Captured this about an hour ago.
Most recent loaf, hopefully less likely to be mistaken for a mushroom
This safety awareness display took me far too long to figure out
M31, Andromeda Galaxy
Picked up this bad boy this week - now, if only the clouds knew they were forecasted to disperse
The cloudy sky curse is real! But thanks to this sub for mentioning the sale
Slowly making progress with EAA. This M42 isn't great, but it's sure better than last time
I captured M31 with my Dob over the weekend
TIL that the guy on the pizza box looks nothing like the WWI flying ace
The forecast next week is all in the 50s, so I put out the mason bee cocoons!
First light with my new camera last night. This was the only shot I got before live-stacking decided it didn't want to align any frames.
These damn kids leaving their toys everywhere!
Just found this sub yesterday. Here's last night's 3-pound loaf.
Beware of cute animals when stargazing, or, how I nearly gave myself a heart attack (MIC)
My hand with only one thumb
Millipedes in my potatoes - should I harvest early?
Someone forgot to attach the arm to this mariachi cutout
