Program for the May 6, 2016, OAS meeting
Astronomy from New Mexico
By Mark and Donna Pryor
What do you get when you mix a strong preference for photography with three months at a New Mexico camp site that has no street lights? This month's OAS program!
Donna and I got interested in astronomy in 2011 and started helping with outreach shortly after joining the Omaha club in 2012. The smiles and “wow I can see the rings” really brings a big boost to our hobby. My interest in photography has blended into astronomy in a big way. I can never just look into the night sky, without thinking of what would a picture of that look like if I tried this or that. Well anyway, hope you enjoy our presentation of Astronomy from New Mexico.
