Star Gazing !

 

Last night Papa set up his Sky shed to view the night sky’s as it was a cool and clear night !

August , September and October are the best times here to star and planet gaze !

            This is what the sky shed looks like when he is in it searching for stars and planets !

He uses a red light in it so that he doesn’t get blinded as it affects your sight with regular light ! It takes to much time for your eyes to adjust from regular light to darkness to view the night sky's ! All Astronomer's use this red light !

Papa was taking  photos of the night sky’s last night , his camera is attached to my telescope which is mounted on the top of his telescope . My telescope acts as a huge lens for him to take nice photos of the stars and planets ! I will post them later !

We had our cup of  tea on the porch and then Papa went off to view the night sky’s as Miggy and  I just  sat   on the porch with the citronella candles going as there were some skitters buzzing around and enjoying the  sounds of crickets chirping !

The air was cool and slowing getting damp but it was lovely to sit out on the porch listening to the night creatures  !

                       Until next time hope you all have a great day !

Have a blessed Sunday.
Your hubby's telescope setup is absolutely professional looking. Wow, now he can look for Curiosity on Mars :)

What a great way to spend a Saturday night!! I was looking at the stars last evening too, there is so much to look at, isn't there?

You have described the perfect way to end a fall like day!~ I would be intimidated with all that star gazing equipment.
