Give you joy! Give you joy! "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." - Albert Einstein Rapt in Awe | Dancing with light | Natural High | US and the World | Peace Passion | Spirit Space | Now that's funny ;-) | Family What's newest - blog by blog! Out of the political swamp -into the cool, clear, universe - way cool! As many of you know I've escaped the fantasy world of political teeth-gnashing and leaped with both feet into the real world of astronomy. As you may not know - but might have guessed - I've created a blog called Driftway Observatory. I've still got a lot of polishing to do on it, but I have posted several items and plenty of pictures covering everything from what drives me to observe, to what I observe with and where I observe. Any or all of which may bore you to tears - this just happens to be my hobby horse. So if you're interested, here's where to sample it all. If not - hey, hope you have a wonderful day ;-) Of hawks, concrete, and the Driftway Observing Green - the development of a visitor-friendly, outdoor extension to tiny, Driftway Observatory. http://www.giveyoujoy.net/awe/archives/2005/05/of_hawks_concre.html Awe, awareness, and astronomy - you may not think there's a close tie between study, observing and meditation, but I do.

My eyes aren't at the top of my head any more! Or how I had a senior moment that lasted for several months as I angished over, purchased, and waited for my telescope, only to learn . . . http://www.giveyoujoy.net/awe/archives/2005/05/uh_oh_my_eyes_a.html Get the lead out - I'm no longer a gun-nut, but my telescope lead me into a gun shop - no pun intended. http://www.giveyoujoy.net/awe/archives/2005/05/get_the_lead_ou.html Laser, Laser . . . Hey, this is the real nitty-gritty for those who want to know about telescope optics and how you get everything to work together. http://www.giveyoujoy.net/awe/archives/2005/05/laser_collimati.html Posted by Greg Stone on May 27, 2005 08:11 AM Go to the permmanent link for this entry to print entry, email link to a friend, or add link to favorites.
