Activities for February, 2017



Saturday, February 11, 2017

Dr. Christopher Edwards, NAU


Title: “300 Years of Space Exploration: What Have We Learned About Earth’s Neighbor, Mars?”

Ever since early humans walked the Earth, we have explored our surroundings, whether for subsistence, acquisition of property, or intellectual reasons. Despite our Earthly accomplishments, no other endeavor has inspired humankind quite like the exploration of outer space. On this tour of the exploration our solar system, we will focus on recent findings from Mars due to the wealth and diversity of data returned from spacecraft in the past two decades. New and exciting discoveries paint Mars as an active and potentially habitable world, which we are just beginning to understand.

M-81

I finally managed to collect enough individual exposures of one of my favorite galaxies, M-81 taken exclusively with my C-14 HD at f/7.5. This is a composite of about 12 x 5 minute frames at ISO 3200-6400 with my modified Canon 6D and IDAS LPS-V4 filter, stacked in Registar and processed in Photoshop CS-6.

The Orion Region

Last night Kwang, Jeff and I ventured to Wupatki and enjoyed some of the darkest most transparent skies in a long while. The Moon, Venus and Mars were dazzling, almost like light 'pollution' because of the clarity. I shot them with a 200 mm telephoto. After moonset we saw incredibly detailed winter Milky Way and of course ever-dominant Orion. I shot it with a 40 mm wide angle lens and the Canon 6D. Great night!.
