Legoland in Upstate New York. Definitely a good time.
The park was much larger than expected, and it is built on the side of a mountain, so it was easy getting to the lower level early in the day, but oh so rough coming back up at the end!… Read the rest
I just bought a thing.
It has been a refresher lesson in Intel CPUs for me, as well as a revisitation of what my financial pain threshold is. Even this ($288) is a bit above what I wanted to comfortably pay, as I need to drop more RAM into it.… Read the rest
Today the line-sets went in, as well as the massive heat-pump.
The covers on the channels are a great sign. These are paintable, so we’ll be shopping for some grey paint come Spring. They put a vacuum on the line-sets and they are all sound, so they charged and primed the system.… Read the rest

Went out on the 14th and took a quick 470 pictures of a blank spot in the sky. Actually, they were 4 seconds a piece, so just over a 30 minute exposure. Stopped down to f/2.8 and tried out reducing to ISO 640.… Read the rest
I hadn’t tried to shoot the Milky Way yet, so after Calin went to bed last night, I snuck down to the park to avail of some reasonably dark (no street lights right in my southern view) and open skies. I was down there about an hour and a half, snapping away like a nut.… Read the rest
