Have you seen this eye on the moon?

Interesting, will have to look for it next time. Seriously.

Any musical astronomers out there?

Posted By Miguel Olivares


I don't play a musical instrument, but wish I could. I often fancy myself in front of an audience while listening to Bach or Vivaldi, for example, doesn't hurt to dream.

Not sure about astronomical, some of my favorites:
Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.3
Beethoven's 9th symphony-Choral
Handel's Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, Water Music
Rachmaninoff's Raphsody on a Theme of Paganini
Vivaldi's Concerto Op. 8

I could go on...

Two Versions of Saturn

Posted By Miguel Olivares

They are both great, but I like the first one a bit more. The second shot looks defocused, soft as you said. Awsome picture though. I guess it is just a matter of personal preference.

I definetely have a long way to go with my own attempts.
