I can. Are you interested?


Hell yeah...what have you got?? As below I already have the Pleiades but I have room for at least two more photos in my bedroom!

Then you'll be wanting this one:

(Looking for a 50cm x 50cm pic minimum)

The best I can do is an 8.5x11 color print. What I can do is sell you the high resolution image file, and you can take it to a photo processing center, and have them print you a poster. Send me a pm if you are interested.
Crap. Photobucket is not letting me log on. I'll get back to you.

Not one that I'm proud of. I will be hopefully working on that this summer when it is best positioned. It's a tough one to image correctly.
Here is the one that I am posterizing that you might be interested in:

This one gets the thumbs down.... Andromeda galaxy or nothing (says Zen) we can wait for what we want.. took me at least 6 months for the Pleiades
Funniest thing is that we ARE in the Southern Hemisphere and see alot of stuff that you guys don't get to see until later in OUR year... ah me planetary orbits eh??

I can relate. I am dying to see the Magellanic clouds, Carina, etc. You're going to have to wait until at least July at the earliest, probably August, if Andromeda is what you want. I'll do what I can. In the mean time, I have something else you might like that you can't see in the Southern Hemisphere. Give me a few minutes and I'll post it.
Here it is. One of my best:

There are over 7,000 galactic stars in this image.

Way cool!! Big Grin But It IS the Andromeda galaxy he wants. At the moment here in the SH we have a very good view of Leo with Mars in it's centre. Orion and Saturn are also quite good.
Why do you not sell the images you have??

Me too. In fact, I got a glimpse of Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars through a 16 inch telescope last night. Looking at Saturn through this scope, you could see the Cassini division in the rings and also see the shadow of the rings on the SURFACE OF SATURN and three of its moons! And that's the first time I've seen the ring shadow!

I am only happy to sell them to anyone who wants to buy them. But there are too many people doing much better work than I am to warrant doing it on a regular basis. But like I said, if someone wants to pay me for them, I'm happy to oblige. But this is a labor of love, and I enjoy sharing them, don'tcha know. Cool Shades

It is a "Self Funding Hobby" and as such it will help you with your hobby orogenicman. How this is going to be done I have no idea but Zen has his heart set on the Andromeda Galaxy and will not compromise. So he is prepared to wait. Big Grin
Right now here we have ... Leo in the North, Libra and Scorpio in the East, Acrux and Carina in the South, Orion setting in the West. Moon has set and Saturn and Spica are bright on the Eastern Horizon.

That's fine. I've taken a few pictures of it, but to do it justice, one must go very deep (at least two hours of expsoure). I hope to be able to do it this summer. I wanted to last year, but the weather (and my wallet) wouldn't cooperate.
