DescriptionI wanted to build a place for my new scope. And building a building with a roll off roof was just to easy. I like to do things the hard way. So I drew up some building plans and built this from scratch. I named it after my late grandfather. He passed away when I was three so I never got to know him well. I am sure he would have loved to see this.

DateMarch 2, 1994
EquipmentThis was made with a 50mm lens and a technique I created in July of 1982. First, the rock wall was focused on and the lens set @ f/16. The shutter was opened and the wall rendered with an electronic flash. Then, with the shutter still open, the focus was shifted to infinity, and the lens opened up to f/2.8 for the remainder of the 15 minute exposure.

DescriptionThe zodiacal light is an inconspicuous glow which can be seen before sunrise around autumn equinox and after sunset around spring equinox. Last year, in November, I've captured the zodiacal light at dawn in a sky getting brighter. And a few days ago, I captured the zodiacal light after the sunset in a sky getting darker. I composed the photos in a single picture for a comparison. This picture and many animations are available in this gallery: http://www.pixheaven.net/galerie_us.php?id=1
