Neowise Comet pt 2

Ok Jules….I circled the comet.

Also we drove up the mountain again tonight earlier to hopefully see the meteor shower …and unfortunately we met up with the clouds. My pictures have been horrible lately. And I did bring my camera but it wasn’t working well at all so I had to settle with my iPhone.

  1. OK. . .now you point it out I see it. I did look at that in your first picture but thought it was a smudge on the lens. And furthermore, my eyesight isn’t as good as it once was – so I’m sticking with that excuse! So how did the comet look to the naked eye rather than through a camera lens?

    1. AMAZING! We always sit/stand in silence as we just stare out into space or at the comet or at the meteors or the sunsets/sunrise. The comet won’t be back around for another 6800 years. Just staring at it and trying to grasp that takes some time.

        1. For me at least this is true. Because I brought my fancier camera with new batteries the second night and we could not get it to catch light. But my son….who has thousand dollar lenses can catch everything….and things our eyes can not see. I was going to ask him to send me his pictures he took….he normally does. But this is my experience….so my fuddy duddy pictures tell my story ๐Ÿ˜‰

          1. Yes, like everything else, if you have invested in the very best equipment, you have a better chance of getting great pictures. However, I never devoted the money to it to have all the big powerful lens…just the ones that came with the camera. ๐Ÿ™‚

            1. At a time years ago I invested in a nicer camera but I let my YOUNGER sons play with it and it became theirs. Nowadays I don’t think I want to devote the time with pictures…so I won’t invest in another camera. But I have to watch what I say around my sons because they are already looking into cameras for me since mine isn’t acting the way it should. I told them…I don’t really think I want one now. But if I decide….I can afford to buy myself one. They buy me everything ….and things I don’t really use. I just don’t want them or anyone wasting money like that. Now if it did become my hobby or career…sure…I can see it. But I just play around with my photos which my iPhone11 does a wonderful job for just that.

              1. Yea, I have a camera, but hardly ever remember to take it with me anymore. Since I don’t dress anymore, haven’t in about two years, it just isn’t worth it to me. Although occasionally I will dig it out to take pictures of scenery. Like recently I took some pictures of all the water in the street and the courtyard at my apartment to show how New Orleans rain acts.

                1. SAME HERE. I always forget it. I was taking it with me for a while there…..and I would leave it in the car. And of course…my oldest son would always find the car door unlocked with my camera and car keys in the car. AND I would never hear the end of it.
                  Yeah…I went through a real forgetful time there. So I can’t blame him for looking out for me. I was making really dumb mistakes.

                  1. That reminds me of one time when I went to a movie. I gave the ticket person my money for the ticket, and turned away leaving the change and the ticket, and started to go on in. They had to call me back to give me my change as well as the ticket.

                    Now if you want to play a game of “I bet you never forgot that”, I can probably beat you..and the funny was it wasn’t even after I started getting older. I am 66 now, and that was about 25-30 years ago. LOL

  2. By the way, the page didn’t give me a “reply” after your last comment, so I don’t know if you are getting the reply or not…not THAT is something I didn’t forget…LOL

    1. As if I understand what you are talking about ๐Ÿ˜€
      I just hit reply and keep my fingers crossed I spelled everything correct cause I am horrible at proof reading. I really should hire a secretary.

      1. What I was saying is that on your prior message….the one before I typed the message you are now responding to….I didn’t get a reply button to hit. So, I just typed it and it looked from my end like just another comment.

        1. Ohhhh……got it. I think we have the response threads set to 10 comments? We can change it I think….I will look into it. Because though we don’t have many threads that get a back and forth comment is a pain when you reach the last comment and have to respond on a different line HOPING someone sees it.
