My Evil Black Cat wishes you all a happy #caturday #CatsOfMastodon
@Alice my friend Will lost power, he’s in Crocker Highlands. He did not appreciate my “Will power” joke. Some people have no sense of humor
This is a pic of my friend’s pussycat Simba when I was over her place having lunch yesterday. No filters, no effects, just a Nikon 35mm f/1.8 wide open with some incredibly advantageous lighting. #Caturday #CatsOfMastodon #Cats
@Alice hows Shakewell on Lakeshore? Asking for a friend…
@Alice here we go. The “QO 166” on my shirt stands for “qualified observer”. You got that after you passed an astronomy course at my local astronomy club, you were then allowed to use the big telescope at the observatory.
So this pic was taken in the summer of 1981 by me and is of course a double exposure, showing that I was *not* a slave to fashion. So I’m 16 in this pic.
My mom got me the shirt. My “idgaf” attitude means I wore it whenever it was the top one in my dresser.
@Alice hey you know where I can get some holy coronation oil? It’s kind of time sensitive. Non-GMO would be preferred
Venus and Jupiter through my 47cm f/4.8 reflector with 35 mm eyepiece, iphone SE #Astronomy #Astrodon #VenusJupiterAppulse
Found this cool site on a rabbit hole dive #RetroHardware
This is a nice read
Moon last night, iphone SE held up to the eyepiece of a 12.5" home made dob. Had a few hours where it cleared up. the seeing was terrible, Jupiter was frying like an egg, but the moon at low power was OK#astronomy #Astrodon
This morning from the Oakland hills. 105 mm nikon lens, 20 images stacked, 0.7 second exposure f/2.8, ISO 6400. I could *barely* make it out naked eye. Darker skies I'm sure it would have been no problem #comet #comet2022E3
