2016—Starry, Starry Night Annotated

Once again, my nephew Michael has pointed out what I actually was photographing the other night.  I love his annotated version of my Starry, Starry Night photo.  I didn’t know I was seeing that much!

  1. Now is a great time to stargaze with binoculars…or a good camera! Just slowly sweep along the center of the galaxy (where it’s brightest, in the southern sky), and you’ll easily bump into a dozen open clusters, which look like dense, sparkling patches of stars. You may see a fuzzy globular cluster or two away from the galaxy center. Some are even visible with the naked eye, like Ptolemy’s cluster… But not, alas, in Manhattan!
