Nice Fireball


Recommended Posts

Howdy Gang,

I decided to do some astronomy last night at Red Stone Picnic area, out at Lake Mead. Between 11:00 - 11:30ish we got a real treat, a huge fire ball off to the east, with two flashes of light. It lit up the whole sky, and all I could do was wonder, where did it land... I ended up staying out too late, after 2am and had a good time. I got a chance to play with the camera, and took a few pics. Enjoy, Jason. :;):

Two galaxies, and M-20 Trifid Nebula, Eagle Nebula

Sonny, I have a Meade LX-200 GPS, 8" scope. It gets the job done and works pretty well. Although, that being said, a 12" has greater light gathering power, but at a bigger expense, and size. Jason :;):
