• I keep on wondering what it is that makes people willing to tear apart the foundations of their skin for love. what keeps people coming back to each other over and over again like a knot that would be cut loose before it is untied. what makes kisses more than kisses, people more than people, love more than the word or the concept or the idea or the effort. because the truth is i have always coped by letting go, moving on, picking myself off of the bathroom floor, wiping my tears, and forgetting everyone who ever touched me. it’s my first instinct— to put all my walls up and pretend i am truly protected. to drown all the names that sounded like music under the oceans of my memory. they struggled to keep afloat, but i never let them above water alive. because moving on is all i know. on nights like these, though, i wonder what it’d be like to love someone enough to stay. to love to tear to kiss to stay through the night and wake with me in the morning. for a name to remain above water and swim with me to a shore. to keep me afloat. to tear me open.
Lunar Eclipse from Alabama! We were lucky with clear skies for the eclipse. My favorite part about the eclipse was the stars that could be seen around the moon. Under a normal full moon the star would be totally washed out!
Für dieses Jahr habe ich geplant in die Astrofotografie einzusteigen. Ich finde das schon seit langer Zeit ein sehr interessantes und spannendes Thema.
Es ist ja auch so ähnlich wie die Wassertropfen Fotografie. Das Motiv ist mit freiem Auge nicht zu sehen, mit der richtigen Technik kann es jedoch sichtbar gemacht werden.
Hier ein Foto von den Plejaden. Leider habe ich noch kein Teleskop. Hier kam mein Canon 135 mm 2.0 zum Einsatz. Als Nachführung habe ich das Star Adventurer verwendet. Das gleicht die Erddrehung aus. Dadurch konnte ich insgesamt etwa 2 Stunden belichten.
Kamera: Canon 5D Mark IV
500 Fotos mit jeweils 13 Sekunden Blende 2,5 und ISO 1600 mit dem DeepSkyStacker zusammen gebaut.
Spent the weekend up in northern Wisconsin. Froze my booty off, attempted to warm up with some beverages, and shot my first astro pic. The moon was almost full so it was probably too bright...and the bevs were flowing so it’s a bit soft on the focus. It only gets better from here.
Only thing I got of the Super Moon, Blood Moon last night. It was way too far and it was super hard to find while I was trying to take a photo of it. I did then they all were too dark or the moon didn’t make it into the picture. Well, I’ll try again in 2021

Thought I'd join the Super-Blood-Wolf-Moon-Eclipse Party, too.
Super Blood Wolf Moon 2019. Congratulations to Rami Ammoun. “This is a mosaic that illustrates how the eclipse occurred last night. The night was very rough, had to deal with a very cold weather, high wind velocity, clouds, and camera batteries that were draining so fast,” says Rami. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery.
TECHNIQUE: Canon T6s mounted to a @meadeinstruments 130mm refractor S6000.
