oh my stars... (can't believe I typed that)

Wish we could get pictures like this from our telescope.

I found my galaxy! This is Messier 101. These photographs are taken with infrared-light used on the light coming from the stars and other things out there (sorry I'm not very technical ;) by the Spitzer Space telescope.

check out this one:

Stars being created and all that. wow.

Now to trying to figure out our telescope, we'd be happy with a good view of the moon!

One of my friends in Jacksonville always used that expression..."oh my stars". It's so sweet :)
By the way, I love your new photo that comes up with your name...beautiful!
