Some sky shots

I am not, and don’t intend to be, a serious imager. But I couldn’t resist popping off a few photos last Monday, with my Canon 7D and 18-135 EF-S and 70-200 f/4 L lenses.

Just two weeks to TSP and 1½ weeks until I head over to Texas …how time flies – I booked my flight six months ago and it doesn’t seem that long. I’m doing talks at San Antonio Astronomical Association and at TSP itself.
