Pretty Pictures

 The director of PR for the observatory (me) has ordered anyone who uses the telescopes to take a moment and make some pretty pictures that we can send out to people wanting to see what our telescope can do. Oddly enough, I listened to myself and on our last run we took a bunch. 

Earlier, I spoke with some experts on imaging with CCDs. Amateurs nowadays can do a fantastic job with small telescopes and CCD cameras; they take a zillion images, use some nice (albeit PC only) software to stack the, work diligently at getting the color balance just right. 

Us? We took three snaps, one in each filter, in between science objects, and then I just goofed around in Photoshop until they looked cool, and not too different from what other people have posted on the web. 

Take a look, at

And if someone can figure out how to explain to me how to embed these into LJ (as I know can be done), feel free to direct me to a tutorial.
