Just thought Iâ€™d share this with everyone.
Weâ€™ve always enjoyed astronomy and love it when thereâ€™s a new moon and we can get a good look at the night sky.
In Belmont, weâ€™re pretty close to the city (San Francisco) and get a lot of city light which tends to wash-out the night sky.
If we look south-south-west however itâ€™s much darker as weâ€™re looking towards the Santa Cruz mountain range.
When I got up early this morning I had to grab my camera and capture one of my favorite constellationsâ€”Orion.
This was taken today, October 9th 2010 just after six in the morning.
I used our Nikon D70 with a shutter speed of 30â€ at f4.8 and ISO of 1600.
