The Photo Thread
#1
every forum needs a good photo thread. So if you took a photo (DSLR, cell phone or point and shoot), share it!

I took this one at the USA Pro Cycling Challenge on Sunday.

The International Space Station passed in front of the moon at 2:27am on 18 August 2011, as seen from a vantage point near my home. I took this photo with my Celestron 11" SCT telescope and Nikon D300s in prime focus configuration. The inset image is a close-up of the ISS from the main image.

Now that last picture is awesome (and a Celestron 11" SCT is nothing to sneeze at either).

Here's another ISS photo. This is a sequence of images of Shuttle Endeavour docked with the ISS on the morning of 20 March 2008, during the STS-123 mission. Chronological sequence of images is from right to left. Images are video frame grabs at roughly 10 second intervals. Inset is a composite of NASA photos to illustrate the docked configuration as seen in the images. Camera is a MallinCam Hyper Color Plus, mounted to a Celestron NexStar 11GPS telescope (2800mm focal length at f/10) and 1/1500 sec shutter speed. Manually guided.

Interesting, he has a live AIM-9 on the wing tip station, but I don't know what the red one is. With further thought I think the white one is an AIM-7 "Sparrow" and the red one is an AIM-9.

there's a live fire range around somewhere, but I haven't the foggiest idea where it's at.

edit: should have known, it's at Ft. Carson. they have an Aviation Battalion of AH-64 Apaches down there, so that would make sense.

Good shot. I would have nixed that exit sign though. It was the first thing my eyes were drawn to.

Ok, here are some pictures taken during the week I attended my HS reunion on Maui (I suffered greatly in High School, not! :))

The first two are walk-up pictures from the visitor's center at the top of Haleakala. The last is deep within the crater during our 13.5 mile day hike.

Tough to get the exposure right in the crater, the histogram functionality of the camera came in quite handy!

That park is definitely under-publicized. Between 40 and 50% as deep as the grand canyon and MUCH narrower.

Black Canyon is incredible. Saw it in the 80's during a tour of Colorado with my beautiful young wife.

The aspen glen trees are nearing their peak. Taken yesterday near CO-125 and US-40 between Steamboat Springs and Kremmling, Colorado, just east of Rabbit Ears Pass.
