Crescent Nebula

Would've posted this earlier, but wanted to shoot the OIII layer to pick up some of the reflection nebula surrounding the Crescent. I'll try again next Fall. For a larger version of this image, click here.

This is an HaLRGB image. I used my Apogee U16M camera with Astrodon Gen2 LRGB and 5nm Ha filters all attached to an Astro-Physics 160 telescope on my Takahashi NJP Temma 2 mount.

Boston Coffee Party:

Allegedly, there really WAS a Boston Coffee Party. There is a 'Ready to Read' book by that title, which I happen to own. Based on a true story, although it looked more like looting to me, than protesting. Ahem. Anyway, you can read about it here:

I would post about it on Hot Air, but I can't get registered there as a commenter. Been trying for a year.
