I still feel that way. Been doing astronomy since I was a child. Here is one of my pics of the Milky Way. Taken at 6200 ft on Mt. Kobau using ISO 800 for ten minutes on double arm drive (two pic composite)

Spyware took over my home page of APOTD :evil:

I agree. Wholeheartedly.

Gift from God, that is.

This thread sort of inspired me to change my desktop. Unfortunately the image itself was too vertical to work out alright, so here's (http://www.wainscoat.com/astronomy/keck-pinatubo.jpg)what I compromised on instead.
