Brief clearing tonight but of course I look east an the very big, full, bright moon is just peeking up over the hill blasting the sky with light. At least the Earth seems happy about seeing the moon!
(Thanks to Phil Plait for posting that photo on his site) Funniest picture I've seen in a while.
Here is an unfinished image of the Rosette nebula taken the same night as my Orion M42 shot below. I need to fix the colors a little more since it look kind of green, but a lot of people that saw this image said it was amazing looking. I just processed this one fairly quickly and posted it, but I got some good comments on it. Maybe it is good, but my worst critic is myself and I'm never quit satisfied. That is what keeps me going outside in the cold thinking "maybe 10 more exposures will get me that good shot and the APOD?"
