Victoria Centre Picnic, Pearson College
Aug 19, 2006
I had a great time at the Pearson College picnic. The sky viewing was fantastic - nice and dark. I was especially delighted to be able to use Bruno's big 20x80 Celestron binoculars which I used to view the Veil nebulae in Cygnus. I could see the entire east side in those with a nice wide field. I felt it was much better than going to the Mount Kobau star party and cheaper too. There was so much food I couldn't eat it all, although I tried.
Included are some of my favorite pictures from last night. I almost gave up on photography last night as the remote shutter switch that I had just bought yesterday did not want to work. That was a bit disappointing. Overall the night
was a complete success.
All images 30 sec, 1600 ISO with a Nikon D70s Tripod Mounted various
focal lengths. Noise removed with Neat Image.
