The Road To The Stars

19 Dec

There’s nothing real “wow” about this image because I had nothing in the foreground, such as a cabin, tent, or anything of interest. I was looking for the north star in that massive star filled sky. I acquired the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer and it had not been out of the box but 48 hours so I had yet to learn to set it up. It’s not difficult and I have the needed apps. But when new at something, it takes some learning. For the fun of it, I set up my other tripod and grabbed some shots just to see what I’d get out there. The first is is a six second shot facing north at Big Bend National Park. The second is a Milky Way image shot as is (on tripod) with Star Watcher set up yet. I shot these at “Dugout Wells”. There was no one out there. A windmill behind me squeaked in the breeze. I did shoot more Milky Way photos, those in a private gallery. But a couple images here as test shots.

God created this!

    It’s funny about Big Bend. My wife and I never much thought about leaving Houston at noon on Friday as soon as I could leave work, drive US 90 to Marathon and check into the Gage, and then spend all day Saturday in the Chisos. A couple of times we drove on in and pitched camp at Rio Grande, and saw the wonderful star show…if we were speedy we could make it to the campground from Montrose in 12 hours. Anyway, we’d head back on Sunday and back to work on Monday. Not much else so inspiring. Nice pix of “the real” Texas.
