I took an out-of-focus shot of the star Misam to see about collimation issues, and indeed, this crosshair (the silhouette of the vanes holding the secondary) is not quite in the center. So I'll have to fix that.

Okay, got to mess with the Unistellar eVscope again tonight. I've decided the software is atrocious.

I also am still struggling with some focus problems. It likely needs a good collimation before I can really dial it in properly, so everything looks indistinct.

I managed to photograph the M 103 and NGC 891.

Laser speckle is such a neat thing. If you've ever used a laser pointer, you've seen it: a kind of glittery quality in the spot of light it creates.

What's happening is, when coherent light from a laser pointer hits a surface with asperities larger than a wavelength, they interfere with one another, making some parts brighter than others.


There are realtors but no faketors

i’m watching that TNG episode in which Dr. Crusher gets aroused reading her grandmother’s journal and then fucks a space ghost

Considering today what a declaration of community rights would look like.

(It occurs to me that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Bill of Rights, and other similar documents focus almost solely on the individual.)

Me and the weighted blanket are hanging out today and playing video games

Okay, nativefier is pretty great. I avoided it because of the whole Electron thing, but here I am.


I find myself saying “ganky” a lot today (or some form thereof)
