In an effort to find something a little different to do during winter break, I decided to head up to the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, AZ with my son Shannon. This is a very cool place if you are a science-y type of person.
During the visit we looked through a few telescopes and were able to view a constellation, a galaxy, and a nebula.
The photo to the left is of the Alvan Clark telescope. It is over 100 years old and was used to discover Pluto.
None - this was shot all ambient. The key light on the left side of the telescope is from the sunlight filtering in through the door of the observatory while the dome is lit by tungsten bulbs.
