amusing things you can do with a telescope

A new cell phone tower was recently installed about a quarter mile behind my house. This morning I saw a couple of guys scaling it, so I thought it might be fun to try to take a picture. It's surprisingly difficult to get good focus, even in daylight. I need to work on that if I'm going to improve my astrophotography.



It occurs to me that taking pictures of a couple of guys working on a cell phone tower is surprisingly similar to taking pictures of a couple of birds nesting at the top of a tree!
