Astronomy Photo Addendum

Now don’t get confused. Last Friday’s blog post was on astrology (zodiacs, horoscopes and the like) and this photo addendum is on astronomy (science) or at least wonderful deep-sky photographs (beginning, of course, with a horse). The photos were taken by Tom Kennedy or Tom and Byron Bergert.
  
Contact me if you’re interest in the imaging details. There’s quite a bit for each. For example, the first photo required 5 hours and 45 minutes of imaging time.
