Astronomical Landscapes

Images of land and sky together, or just a wider view of the sky. An advantage of robotic imaging is that it frees me up to just photograph and observe the sky with my eyes or simple binoculars.

From my deck I look out on the west side of Pikes Peak, and I frequently photograph the Moon rising behind it. And our high mountain environment means we can have dynamic weather, with interesting clouds, rainbows, and all manner of overhead excitement.
