Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

My very own picture of the moonI took this picture with a high-powered telescope that has also taken pictures deep into space. For more, visit Saturn Lodge Observatory.

    1. Thanks! I wish I could take credit for all of it, but it was really just a matter of getting the telescope in the correct place by watching a computer monitor and then hitting a series of keystrokes. It’s an unusual way to take a picture. 🙂

  1. I was going to say you have quite a telephoto lens! 🙂 Reminds me of the photos we took through the spotting scope in a Costa Rican rain forest, shots we wouldn’t otherwise have been able to get.


    1. It belongs to an observatory that my brother-in-law was a part-owner of. He’s since sold his interest and is setting his own observatory. It’s in California, so we don’t have easy access to it. 😉
