April 2010 Astrophotos

It's back: the Meade LXD-55 is working again (expect some information on the problem and the solution soon) and it's as good as ever. The result: for the first time in months, deep sky astrophotos of some early spring favorites. These, plus a couple of Moon shots constiture the astrophoto gallery for April. Be sure to check out the archive, too.

The Whirlpool Galaxy (M51)

The Leo Trio Galaxies (M65, M66, and NGC 3628)

The Sombrero Galaxy (M104)

Third Quarter Moon through the Tokina 100mm ATX-PRO Macro, image cropped

Rising Orange Moon with my Olympus Stylus 550WP

The Full Moon sporting spikes due to aperture blades. Taken with the Olympus again (duh, look at the noise!)

Up Next
The Stylus 550WP review is almost done, then there's the already mentioned LXD-55 saga, and who knows what else. Stay tuned, something cool is bound to show up in the next few days.
