Week 14

For my photo, I was planning on getting a picture of Whirlpool galaxy. In the end, I got the whirlpool galaxy. About an hour after the sun went down we started setting up the telescope. Andrew was setting up the really big telescope and we were trying to set up the smaller telescope.We had a few difficulties in trying to set up the mount, but after a few attempts and creative ideas fro ma few peers we got it fixed.  The rest of setting up the telescope was easy. Aligning the telescope was fun because you point the laser pointer at the north star and then go to it with the telescope. Then you align it with two other stars. We got the telescope right to where the whirlpool galaxy is and took 60 pictures of it.
