First night of the observatory!

I have not moved the telescope in yet, I have not finished building the door, but I can still take my digital camera out there and shoot pictures!

 Just trying to get the focus right, looking North.

 A little milky way, a little air glow….

 A touch of horizon glow in there…

 The aurora was just at the edge of the horizon….

 The seven sisters popping into view.

A long exposure around Polaris, like 23 minutes at iso100….

Very soon the observatory will be up and running for real!  If you think this is cool and want to support the effort, here is a link!
