Re: The Magical "37"

Cool math, Roger!!

You left out 37 x 18, but eventually added it, cuz the "devil made you do it."

The Magical "37"

So, here's something to ponder. There is a small grouping of stars buried in the constellation of Orion. This cluster (NGC 2169) is only visible with a telescope. Imagine sweeping through the star field and a 'number' pops up. The number 37. (if you squint, it is even more evident) Quite odd, indeed...

Messier's #1 - The Crab Nebula

For the past couple of weeks, I have been painstakingly working on a single astro image. My philosophy has taken on a 'quality over quantity' theme. Better to work on the best single image that I can produce, rather than pump out a few so-so pics per week/month. For this one, I spent three five-hour...

Re: Leonids 2020

Hi Bruce, I heard a report on the radio that a bright meteor was seen over the Northboro, MA region last night. Was it a Leonid? Also, we were so SPOILED by the 2001 Leonid Storm, that anything else won't be worth getting out of bed for. I counted 168 shooting stars from 5:00-5:30 on that glorious m...

I recently spent an entire night imaging this object from 1am to 5am to capture 70 3-minute exposures of luminance. Just before going to bed at 5:30, I realized that I never checked the 'save images' box and all wa...
