    Marvelous photos. Remember the line in CONTACT concerning intelligent
    beings in the universe? Sure is a lot of wasted space if there isn't...

    well, I have only watched that movie no less than 200 times ... I almost got a chance to go to Arecibo as part of my undergraduate study into pulsars. I hope to visit the VLA (where she says that line) in December

    Wow! Those are amazing photos!

    I have a scope and like to get out and observe whenever possible, but haven't ever really dabbled in astrophotography. Those are seriously great shots!

    What's your setup (mount, camera, filters, etc)?

    Wonderful pictures, to think other solar systems don't or can't sustain life would be typical human arrogance
