I BOUGHT A TELESCOPE!!! GALAXY HERE MICCO COMES!

DREAM COME TRUE!!!

Scenario 1: Tim spent 2 hours putting the telescope pieces together while Micco checks her blog, technorati, facebook, friendster, deviantart, multiply and had an audio conversation with her friend teaching her how to start blogging (because she's a good writer).

Scenario 2: Micco stargazing in the backyard.
The pictures are not of that high quality because I used some lousy camera...but looking at it through those telescope... I saw clusters of stars which I cannot take picture of because the stars weren't bright enough.

Image 1 : The brightest star I see in the sky. The star we see with our naked eye that doesn't twinkle. Can anyone tell me what star is that? =/
Picture was taken in "twilight" mode.

OMG THIS IS JUPITER!

Image 2: Same star, taken in "Night" mode. Inevitable shake :P

Image 3: Manage to find two bright stars!! Then only to find out I actually caught 3 stars!

I'll be camping outback for the weekend! Bringing my new love :) Can't wait to take pictures of the Moon's surface and wink at the Moon man. :)

jeff: What is "siong Yuet"? He had no choice. He was more excited when I bought it. I was a little bit excited :P he was like a kid with a candy ler!

davors: You don't like your telescope anymore? I can take it away from you so I don't have to fight with Tim! There wasn't any moon last night. :( I'll be in the outbacks today. Will see how the sky is in the countryside!

LiewCF: :) I have a many interests in life and will want to atleast try it so that when you're out socializing, with old or young, you'd have something in common to talk about! Like knitting with most mature ladies, cars with men, mmorpgs with geeks and gamers, and shopping with girls! I'll know a bit of everything.

Star map. Been using it for a while, tons of features. Took me a while to tweak the ambiance/light pollution so it looked more or less like what we see. You should try it out.

bytpceo: Thank you for the info. I did research a little before going into this field and found that google sky wasn't too reliable. I'll try using it though! Thanks!!

bytpceo said...

wow micco... not many ppl outhere now criticizing any of the google stuffs... but nice to hear that :) i ll email google CEO Eric Schmidt about "google sky wasn't too reliable"... :)

good day.

bytpceo: If you didn't know then I suppose you gotta google it. That's how I find out. And what's with the name dropping? Or is it apple polishing?

What makes you think google can't make mistakes?

surely google is imperfect. just that not too many people actually realised it and i admired your knowledge on it indeed. In fact my company is currently developing some works based on the imperfect google maps.
happy sky peeping :)
