A few random photos taken by members of whatever members want to take photos of.
I've seen a lot of pictures of the Horsehead Nebula and the surrounding area, but this one is exceptionally nice. It was taken from the courtyard of the Astronomical Lyceum in (almost) downtown Magdalena by the visiting friend of the Magdalena Astronomical Society, Antoine Ribaut, in October of 2019. Very nice.
Accidentially managed to take a decent picture of M31 and friends. Canon T6i at prime focus on a Sky-Watcher Esprit 80 atop a Losmandy GM-8 mount. Single shot, 340 seconds unguided. This was the first time trying this fancy non-flim kind of picture takin'. North is to the left.
Ready for action at Etscorn Observatory in Socorro.
Blown way up out of a larger picture. I was supposed to be taking a picture of NGC-1049. It was my first night with a non-DSLR camera. ZWO ASI174MM through a Celestron 6 for 30 seconds. Same specs for the M57 picture above, but on a different night.
More astronomical junk of Bob's is here.
Fun with wide angle lenses. Taken during one of the star parties.
The Great Specked Bird of the Bible. The accurately placed overlying drawing is from the last great naked eye astronomer Johann Hevelius from about 1690. The picture was taken late 2017.
