Astronomy

My wife bought me a 10" Dobsonian reflector telescope for my birthday. Most of the pictures here were taken from this telescope in my backyard.

Aurora

We had an aurora visible all the way down in Wisconsin on November 17, 2015. Here is a gif I made from pictures from a tripod taken over an hour.

My goal is to fill this out when I get a shot of the moon in all of it's phases.

Jupiter

This image does not do justice to what you can see with your eyes through a telescope but I was able to capture this on a clear night.
