Always expanding my interests, I found this really nice article about micrometeorites on instructables.  So, being the avid armature astronomer, I had to try it out.  Can't say that having a reason to get a new piece of equipment doesn't hurt either.  So I took my Christmas money and ordered me a microscope off of eBay. This is a low power 20x-40x VanGaurd scope.

I have a Cannon A590IS camera now.  I really like this little camera. Once of the deciding factors for getting it was chdk.  This software loads off the flash card and gives a lot of options to use.  One of the features is having a remoter shutter control.  Of course this can be as simple as having a 5 volts of batteries, a push button, and wire that to a USB cable.  I figured out how I could make it harder.  Make it wireless!

These archive images are are mine, in the physical form, but they also belong to every one.   I have them under the creative commons license. Only cause I can't figure out how to licenses them under public domain.  Please consider these to be public domain.  I also urge any one that has prints, photos, or the like from prior to 1923 to do the right thing and make them available to everyone.  Which means if any one needs a better copy please contact me.  Also if you have prints that you would liked them scanned I will help if I can. My only cost on this is that they are made available to the public and I get a digital copy.  There is no need to lock our own history away from our selves.  


So here is my first donations.  These are all  images of Eureka Springs, Arkansas
