Mount Wilson Trip

Our October 2003 trip to the famous Mount Wilson Observatory. This was the observatory that Edwin Hubble did all his fantastic research on the expansion of the universe. We went with our friends from the San Francisco Amateur Astronomers, Jane & Mojo.

 In September 2004 we spent an excellent two weeks at COAA, with our hosts Bev and Jan. This is our first real adventure into Astrophotography. Most of the images we took were with a manually guided 500mm reflector. A couple of the wide field images were taken on a driven mount. All the images in this album were taken with a Fuji FinePix S2 Pro digital camera. The images are a result of team work between Bev, Susan and myself (Stuart).
