I've been lusting over this telescope for a long time ... it's ideal for astrophotography.

Celestron NexStar 4 SE Computerized Telescope

One of these years I'll get something along these lines. Right now I'm limited to mostly moon shots -- but they turn out well with the right gear! Here's my latest moon shot:

MacDoc, I felt the same way growing up in New York City. This is what is so amazing about living here in St.John's. Looking out over the ocean is a magnificent sight when stargazing.

New ehMacer John Morgan posted (in another thread) about a useful iPod/iPhone app called "Star Walk" ($4.99) that fits this thread.

Very, very cool:

he NASA Hyperwall-2 isn't your average multi-display setup. This one was created for "displaying images from Nasa's Spitzer Space Telescope; the quarter-of-a-billion-pixel, 128-screen, 23ft-wide LCD array is the world's highest-resolution display system."
+ YouTube Video

It would be cooler if NASA were involved in space travel instead of watching these images on Chinese monitors.

No way that would happen nowadays MF... too much money is already earmarked for the military budget and servicing humongous debt.

There is hope for the American private sector, though. They got it going on.

Virgin Mobile or Google will be the first to put a human on Mars, while NASA futzes around.
