Monthly Archives: September 2011


An article about observing geosynchronous satellites in the October 2011 issue of Sky & Telescope magazine prompted me to dust off a back-burnered project of photographing geosats.


A couple more shots from September 3rd – Comet Garradd moves over to the “coat hanger” and is gradually getting brighter.

And a 2x stacked shot of the Pleiades.

These are both unremarkable,  but for the fact that they were shot on film that expired 12 years ago!

The moon sits in the head of Scorpius in this high-dynamic-range shot.

A small break in the “drought” of comets brings Comet Garradd barely into view against the summer Milky Way.
