    Default My last Imaging Session featured in our local Newspaper/Blog.



    Our local newspaper/blog "Bernalwood" has taken notice of my feeble astro photography attempts. I'm glad my neighbors are into stargazing. This is about the 4th article I've contributed for them. I just wish they would publish the reprocessed images I send them.

    Ha ha,, now thats what I call humor. Man, that was well done. I can only presume the photos in question are ones you have put up here before. I'd hate to think i'd missed out on any. Must be a great neighborhood..

    It is a great neighborhood, I've been here for about 25 years. The article that proceeded mine was interesting, underground cartoonist Spain Rodriguez was a neighbor who passed away last week. Here's the Bernalwood obituary:
