Star watching

One thing that I like to do over recent days is to look at the stars above my home outside of Fairbanks and when I do, I like to un-focus my eyesight just a little bit just see the night sky moving a just little bit. Don’t know why I like or want to do that with my eyes while looking at the night sky.

I’ve always had a passing fancy with the stars just about my whole life. I had a telescope for a while when I was growing up but some how it got lost on the move to Alaska. I would love to get a new telescope that could hook up to my computer and view the night sky that and along through the eye peace itself on a telescope itself.

One thing that I would like to do if I got a new telescope is to take pictures through the it, well at least closer pictures of planets and of stars that are viewable/visible from where I live in Fairbanks. Where I currently live is or could be considered a rural part of Fairbanks but yet close enough to town to see about one third of the city along with North Pole, Alaska and a little bit further than that city.

One thing I really like about Fairbanks and Alaska in general is that the night sky can be seen by driving out of the various big cities and have a clear view of the sky when its not overcast with clouds at night or when there is no full moon out at night.

Bye for now…
