Fall has arrived. Delta Bessborough Hotel in downtown Saskatoon yesterday evening while on the Prairie Lily riverboat. The sad thing about this historic landmark, is they destroyed how it looks recently, by adding the HVAC unit on the top left of it, which looks atrocious.

Abandoned church under the Milky Way recently. This is south of Saskatoon in a very dark pocket.

15 years ago, God spared my Dads life... today I’m asking for you to take a moment to read my story... On August 21, 2003 in my hometown of Nakusp, during the forest fires, my Dad was at work in the bush when he was hit by a tree and seriously injured. The tree hit my dad across the chest and tossed him down a steep bank. The impact crushed his chest and caused damage to his lungs, it broke his back, several ribs, and collarbone.
The day of the accident STARS air ambulance just happened to be doing a display of their services in Kamloops (which is about a 4 hour drive away from Nakusp). When they found out about my dad they made the 52 minute flight to come pick him up and transport him to Kamloops hospital. With out STARS by Dad would likely not have survived. I don’t like to think about what would have happened had STARS not been in the area when my dad got hurt, it’s almost like they were a miracle that came to take my dad to the hospital in Kamloops and that may be what saved.
So because of my deep gratitude to STARS and the impact they have had on my family, I have signed up for the Ryde the hanger event in Saskatoon in support of STARS air ambulance. I have decide to do the endurance pro event which is a 4 HOUR bike ride. I’m asking you to donate, even if it is just something small to help support me in the event and to keep STARS in the sky saving lives. Click Link in bio to donate.
First-ever tracked photo I’ve taken from a couple mornings ago. I purchased a Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer tracking unit from All-Star Telescope (https://www.all-startelescope.com/sales/product_info.php?cPath=187&products_id=1240) at the Saskatchewan Summer Star Party a year or two ago and had never used it before. I headed out with @mitiksroway and he showed me how to use it properly as he had an identical unit too. The sky was fairly dark, except being nearly 70kms away from Saskatoon, the amount of light pollution was still horribly bright and disappointing.

The river in Saskatoon was perfectly calm last night, which was an unusual, but welcomed sight. The water was like a mirror and I was able to capture this image using a Canon 7D MKII, Tokina 11-16mm lens, and Slik Pro 500DX.
