Congratulations to you and Christina, Mike. Winced when I saw New Jersey, but it did sound like a great destination after all. :lol:

Glad to see a solid core hanging in there and supporting the ...

Re: NGC 2174 Monkey Head Nebula

That's really nice, Roger. I especially like how you teased out that smaller bit of nebulosity above it. You've really made this into a spectacular DSO.

Re: Time to unlimber the Big Gun

Wow! That was quite a grab of the sky, Pete. You got nearly all the best sellers. Beautiful images. My monitor is showing the Pleiades as a bit on the greenish side- I'm sure they don't care one bit, and who knows if that isn't how they really look anyway to creatures other than ourselves. Great to ...

You are the part of an astronomy family dynasty like the Herschels, Frank. Very interesting story.

Hope you had a great Christmas.

Re: Jupiter-Saturn conjunction...clouds cleared in time

Nice pictures all, Roger. The parting of the clouds was miraculous. I managed to get one or two keepers myself.

Re: Great Conjunction Streaming Live NOW

Paul, Thank you so much for posting this. What a great way to watch while we have such an overcast sky.

Don't tell anyone. I'm going to take a screen shot and post it as my own. :lol: :roll:

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
