Picture of the Week #83



Globular cluster M75 taken with the Prime Focus Camera on the 30-inch telescope at McDonald Observatory in 1998 (AASTRA participants took the images and then I combined them into the final color image you see here.)

New old blog... or something like that

Because Blogger decided to discontinue FTP publishing (which isn't necessarily a bad thing, it was slow and occasionally broke for days on end), I had to move all of the blogs I used Blogger for to new addresses. This presented a bit of a problem with the blog on this site, since it was the homepage! So the new address is blog.larae.net, which you will be automatically forwarded to from the old homepage at plain larae.net. I'm also going to use this blog to test out some of the new design tools and stuff that I have access to now that I'm not using the old publishing service. So if things change often, don't be surprised!

Picture of the Week #81



The Carina Nebula (with the massive star Eta Carina in the spotlight) on the screens at the Vislab in the ACES building at UT. Photo 2010.

This is just a section of the whole array of monitors - there are a total of 75 monitors at 2560x1600 resolution. Photos, of course, do not do it justice!
