Gotta drink the buzz sunday night
I love how the first week I get my scope there is just clouds.
But then finally, on a really cold and windy night, I was able to see my first deep sky object, Saturn, and clearly identify its rings and four of its moons. Your investment of time, money, and effort will be met with great intellectual reward, I assure you.
But even with my little pos 50mm scope that actually doesn't even have a name on it (I think it's 50x mag though, I haven't tried the barlow) I can see Saturn pretty clearly. It's nice enough, but yeah it's always nice to use something better, that's why I wasn't at home using my own scope that particular clear night.
Jesus Christ your title is like 98% of your posts.
This boostar sale really had a bad impact on the forum layout's global quality.
By now it's more unique to not have a title.
I like your title though. Best title I've seen yet. Though it would fit even nicer with my avatar.
It's good but small so I didn't really notice it.
Are the scales in Stellarium off, or is Andromeda really big and take up 1 degree?
So do you guys think is there any solid matter near the edge of the observable universe, non-photon/gluon/boson particles that's been travelling at very near the speed of light since the big bang?
Well, I'd say that once you get to the edge of the universe as a whole, things will be pretty sparse, and once you go far enough, the hydrogen concentration will drop from an atom every few cubic meters to none (although everything near the edge will be flying outwards at high speeds)
Well that's the light from those distant galaxies are only just reaching us. Who knows, they could all be gone by now from some supermassive black holes. But beyond those galaxies could be millions or even hundreds of billions more galaxies. The only problem is that the light hasn't reached Earth yet so we can't say for sure.
I feel really small looking at this.
Currently the ISS is making a pass over my house, and will make another one (which will be visible (hopefully)) at 9PM
I'm in Norway I saw it when it passed over Germany, and I thought "wow, if there was a space elevator in Germany I'd be able to see it really clearly from here at night."
About how much does a good digital telescope cost? The kind that you plug to a laptop and can take photos with? I always find myself mesmerized by the stars (when I can see them) would be nice to know what im looking at.
I love that picture.
That's the kind of picture that gives you bragging rights on Facebook.
The greatest self-shot ever.
Now all we need is a mirror shot using Hubble.
