Astrophotos from my 2005 SSO trip - Labeled

[Back to unlabeled photos.]

All photos were taken with an old-fashioned 35mm SLR with a 50mm f2 something lens, 800 ASA film and one minute exposures on a stationary tripod. Images were taken on the ground beside the 40 inch telescope building.

My favorite image, the Magellanic Clouds rising over the 2.3m "dome".

A pair of coalsack region (southern cross) images:

The galactic center was straight overhead!

The Grus region.

The Lupus region.

Back toward home, Cygnus upside down!

And from a dark site in Australian winter you can see the zodiacal light. Thanks to Laszlo Kiss for showing me this!
