Hey everyone exciting news I’m starting my junior year of aerospace engineering tomorrow! Here’s a picture I captured of the moon using a 5,000mm focal length scope. It’s actually a panorama since I was so zoomed in. It totals around 50 megapixels. The optlong RGB filters do terribly with white balancing the moon properly, so it took a lot of work to get the minerals to show on the lunar surface. Hope y’all enjoy and wish me luck :) also this scope came from @meadeinstruments

This moment was captured by the phenomenal @joanwood01 , right before one of our summer thunder storms. 📸
Those AZ skies are something out of a dream.
Yesterday my workshop ended and since some of the models were calling for huge storms in Tucson to kick out a dust storm up the 10 in the afternoon, I hit up Benson for a bit to shoot around, but it quickly became apparent the dust storm wasn't gonna happen until possibly way late.
So I raced to Phoenix (anxious to be home after six days anyway), caught the storms rolling into town up on the 101/64th street, hung out with storm pals Jerrod Harris, John Moore and some others! Lightning wasn't happening though, so I moved onto the west side of town, caught a nice bolt producer over the White Tanks and then took a chance further west on Salome Highway where I caught this majestic beast.
The storm was kicking out some good strikes all around me, but there wasn't anywhere I could shoot out of the rain...so I did something I usually hate, which is to just be patient and wait for the rain to pass 😂
The moment the rain stopped, I jumped out, setup up tthe Sony at 14mm and jumped back in the truck. A huge flash happened and I swear the bolt appeared to be right in front of me, but it turned out just to be the one in the left edge of this frame. So I jumped back out of the truck cursing because I missed it...and then saw the photo and was like...oh okay...that'll do donkey...that'll do :) A huge positive or clear air CG...looks like it landed just across the freeway, a couple hundred feet away or so. It froze the profile of a passing truck as well, almost looking like it was near hitting it. Love the highway itself lighting up from being wet with rain.
Later I ended up on I-8 in the wee hour of the morning, but that's for another time :) #mop#mikeolbinski#mopphotos#instagramaz#see_arizona#igsouthwest#ig_stormclouds#earthfocus#earthpix#discoverearth#canon#stormhour#igworldclub#monsoon#storms#madwx#azwx#weownthenight_az#lightning
Rainbows are wonderful. They fill a gray sky with light and color and lift everyone's head up, away from their troubles. Local theater does very much the same. Have you been to a Theatrikos Theatre Company production lately?
