Orcas in captivity is plainly sad and frustrating. Not educational. Please just refrain from going to any event that makes animals simply become a show for humans. Think twice before going. 🙏🌀. 😪😪😪

This was my fail of my marathon trip... Well maybe a kinda fail. Most astrophotoghers aren't strangers to failures and technical difficulties. We learn from them and move on. Mistakes have been what drives me to get better and to stay positive and patient in life and in the hobby.
On the first night the northern part of the sky had some patches of haze that took out that whole sessions worth of setting up and imaging. The second night as I slept the mount tracked it's way into colliding with my guidescopes USB cable into the tripod leg resulting in a failed meridian flip. The last night I was out, that said cable caused problems in guiding and wasn't able to keep most of the frames. I didn't know about the cable until after I began packing to leave.
Not everything always works out when you plan it but it's just something patience has taught me to be happy I enjoyed my stay there and get a few good images and awesome memories out of it. Besides I'll be coming back hopefully twice a year, so I'll be adding more data to this next year for you all to see.
I am grateful to know the quality of sky there as I can't wait to come back!

I am happy to share a possible failure yet a long wait of a work in progress with you all. I can't wait to truly finish it next year and bring more depth and clean/crisp details to you all.
This is the last astrophoto from my adventure out to Marathon, Tx in big bend country.
Thank you for looking and always keep your head up to the stars
Nouveau dessin que j'ai fais ce dimanche
j'avais pas beaucoup d’idées, alors j'ai fais un requin mutant en essayant de penser à de nouvelles idées (je pense d'ailleurs à des idées pour le dessin d'halloween). Enjoy ^^ et bonne fin de weekend à tous

Take a look at those teeth!
Great White teeth are serrated, allowing for greater ripping power!
This high impact strategy can cause damage to their teeth, even causing them to lose some on occasion.
Don’t worry though, sharks grow new teeth throughout their entire lives, so when one falls out, the next just slots into place!
Louisiana's Pinky the Dolphin is back! No, this is not a mirage - it's a real dolphin. Pinky is albino, but instead of being white, she's pink due to the blood vessels and tissues that lie under her skin. Albinism is rare enough in the ocean world, and pink is even rarer! She's an honor to see if you get the chance

Top - Whale Shark (Rhincodon typus)
Bottom - Zebra Shark (Stegostoma fasciatum). Sharks have inhabited earths oceans for 400 million years, but today they are disappearing at an alarming rate.
In the past 50 years we have witnessed our shark populations around the world decline by 90%. We as humans are responsible for this by taking over 100 million sharks out of the sea each year through fishing, finning, by catch, loss of habitat and indirect influences like pollution.
