    Default Lowell Observatory Shots



    Hi all,

    I've been able to make a couple of trips to Lowell Observatory and have
    posted a few shots to my pBase gallery
    http://www.pbase.com/craigbob/lowell_observatory . Let me know what you
    think.

    Here is one I took it is 16 minute iso 100 shot. Processed in RSE
    Premium. If anyone knows how I can get rid of the lens flare I'd sure
    appreciate knowing how.

    Craig,

    I loved the shot of Mars over Lowell's mausoleum!

    ......now if you had taken it on October 31st and gotten the ghost of
    Robert Burnham Jr in there it would have been really cool!

    Spooky shot of Mars over Lowell's tomb. I wonder what he would think
    of all the Mars mania today. Two rovers, two orbitrers with a third on
    the way, and hundreds of amateurs imaging Mars as never before...

    Thanks, That is my 1st entry for Jim's contest. I won't be back out here
    next week, so I decided to go up to Lowell again tonight. this time they
    were showing Mars in the 24" Clark. Very cool, I tried to get a shot,
    but I could not get focus with the 20d and the 24". Not enough in
    focus. But if I could've gotten the shot I think that would have won
    just for the coolness factor.

    I wonder if Lowell had had the eyepeices that we use today available to
    him if he would have seen his canals? I'm guessing not. the view through
    the 24" with a 22mm Panoptic was very nice.
