First Encounters: THE UBSTUDIOS.COM ASTRONOMY SECTION
Astronomy SPECIFIC SECTION.
The observatory I want my own custom built one modeled after in the hopefully near future. This page also contains neat views of objects in the sky as seen through the telescope(s) the guy has.
Picture taken from the Physical Sciences Roof (UWYO) with a very wide open iris (longer exposure.) Look at the guy walking toward the classroom building, he looks like a ghost. This was taken at the required observing lab 3/6/05. We were able to look at a few cool objects while we were there. We mostly were able to see Saturn, the Orion Nebula (on the main astronomy page), the Pleiades, and a few other stars out at the time including Sirius. I must say, this is what inspired me to want to build my own telescope dome (the link above takes you to the one I would like to have) and further my interest in astronomy. I'm not saying this to be a kiss-ass, I'm saying it because I've always thought of Astronomy as one of my hobbies. I also plan on minoring in Astronomy if I have enough time.
