MilkyWay from Fire island light house. I was hoping to revisit the milkyWay this week with the new moon. Looks like that’s not happening. It’s been raining for days 😩Canon 5D mark IV and sigma 14mm lens 8 seconds f/2.8 ISO 1600 #longisland #longislandproshots #exploreliny #news12li #islandstrong #lislandastronomy #milkyway #astrophotography #robertmosesbeach #sigma #canon #canon5dmarkiv #fireisland #lighthouse #lighthouses#ig_worldview#islandprimeshot#lislandastro #ayearinthesound#milkywaychasers

MilkyWay shot from Robert Moses state park. love how Mars shines so bright in these shots. I was hoping to revisit the milkyWay this week with the new moon. Looks like that’s not happening.

Last night I waited in between clouds to try and get some shots of Mars. I have been trying with my ccd camera for a couple of weeks and have not been able to get a clear shot. My guess is I have not mastered my camera and software.

I decide not to give up and try my luck at eyepiece Projection photography. I used a tele vue 13mm 1.25 eyepiece and a canon 80D with my stellarvue 102 on a celestron AVX mount. I was happy to have captured a polar cap and some dark regents. Will try again on a clear night. #mars #canonusa #astrophotography #eyepieceprojection #nevergiveup💪

Early this morning around 2:15 I was able to take a look at comet comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner.
This image was captured with my Stellarvue 102 on a celestron AVX mount and my canon 80D. This is a single 8 second expose. I waited until I was able to see the constellation Auriga come up from behind the trees.
I also lowered the temperature of the picture so you can see the comet in the center.#comet #canonusa #astronomy #socool#celestron #stellarvue

The skies have been a dull gray at sunset these last few weeks. Tonight the sky was still the same. I went on a sunset cruise and decided to zoom in on the setting sun behind the houses. I like the way it looked. I hope you do too. #sunset#myskynow #canonusa #islandstrong#ayearinthesound

Humpback whales and fin whales. This was from my trip to Montauk Long Island on the Cresli/Vicking fleet. What an amazing site it was to watch them breach tight in front of you. #whales #humbackwhale #finwhale #cresli #vickingfleet #ayearinthesound

Full Sturgeon moon shy about 3 hours. 8/26/18 Stellarvue 102 on a celestron AVX mount. canon 80 D. #moon#moon_of_the_day#moon_awards#waxinggibbous #celestron#canonusa#canonphotography
