    If you can get a few miles outside of Dumaguete's light dome and the sky is clear and transparent, the Milky Way is there for your viewing pleasure.
    The following image was taken on Sept.29 at 9am, just before the Moon came up to spoil my fun. I used a 19mm/f2.8 lens with a 30sec exposure at ISO3200. With this amount of exposure, if there was any light pollution you would not be able to see the dark lane of cosmic clouds that bisect and obscure the Summer Milky Way. This image is facing directly West from my terrace.
    The following night was hazy, but it produced a beautiful Lunar Ice Halo, with the Moon situated between Orion and the Pleiades.
    I was also able to capture China's Space Station passing across Orion's Belt.
    There is a fair amount of beauty here if you know where and when to look.

    Please enjoy the images!

    We can be like they are.

    In case you kids missed it, I'm including some snapshots of April's "Super-Moon"
    What makes it "Super"? The media.

    It's been a terrible month for stargazing. There's a beautiful apparition in the morning sky now. Venus and Jupiter are guarding the Scorpion. Every now and then the clouds open up and give me a chance to image it. I'm also including the only images I was able to capture of the Moon and Sun.

    Picked this up as I thought it looked cool, was not a fan of the yellow so had it repainted. Now I think it looks really cool. I have a few more ideas to really make it stand out but need to see it in person first. Hopefully they put everything back together correctly...will find out tomorrow when the wife picks it up from the shop.
