Standing in Nowhere, Illinois

It is amazing that we can stand in our small town and see details in the night sky.  Tonight we went out with Erin and Keri to our favorite cemetery  (yes, the same one where we visited with the Police Officer) with the telescope.  We saw the galaxy Andromeda, Jupiter and his moons, our own moon, and the Milky way was incredible.  With my camera on my tripod, this is what I captured.

And, looking through the telescope this is what we saw.

The way the telescope works with the mirrors, it places the image upside down and reversed.

It is just amazing to see all that detail, even most of it is visible through binoculars.

We had a great time, and I just wanted to share it.
