-- Thought I’d share another interest of mine.....”stargazing”. Scanning the cosmos can be rewarding although frustrating without the right equipment. This setup belongs to Steve Elwood, artist and astronomer. The pic was a combination of flash for Steve and telescope and long exposure for the constellation Orion. A tripod was absolutely necessary and Steve had to remain still during the exposure, the ambient lights in the background and the LED’s on the scope were a bonus.
