I have several posts that I am working on right now but nothing that was “ready” because I spent the past couple of nights playing with my telescope until the wee hours of the morning. I am in possession of the proper adapters to attach my Canon SLR to my late 1970’s Celestron C8 Schmidt-Cassegran telescope but never could get it to take a good picture. I will have to play around with it some more.
What you see above is taken with my iPhone 4 through the telescope. You just stick the phone’s camera lens right up onto the telescope eyepiece. Did you know you could DO that? Me either. God bless the internet! It may not be the absolute best photo of the moon I have ever seen but it is MINE.
I feel compelled to say a few words here about mosquitoes at night. I assume they were mosquitoes. I couldn’t actually see them. It was dark. Go figure. Whatever those blood sucking bastards were, they laugh in the face of DEET and managed to turn my legs into something that resembles the craters of the moon’s surface. I will NOT be wearing skirts to work this week. Sob.
Speaking of insects, I have been exceedingly frustrated with several of the new bugs in Word Press (such as not activating the like or share buttons for posts generated or updated from the phone app). I blog mobile. It is what I do. It is the only way I can do what I do. Unless this bug gets fixed I am not sure what the future holds for me as far as blogging is concerned.
So, I am going to try scheduling this post from my home computer. If you see it at noonish today, then WOOHOO! It worked. I generally don’t have good luck with this scheduling stuff so if you see it 6AM you can go ahead and laugh at me. I deserve it.
