One of the kitten's favorite toys is the cardboard tube left when you finish a roll of toilet paper. He has several strewn about the house but wants a new one after several days of playing with the old one. I guess we haven't been keeping up with production of toilet paper tubes and when Linda went into the bathroom this morning someone had unrolled almost an entire roll of toilet paper. When the kitten was confronted he had a smile that said "hey, I was just trying to help out."
I have two versions of messier 42, the Orion nebula which is a diffuse nebula in the milky way. The first version was in a critter back in April and I've included it for comparison. The second version is of the same data processed with some new software. Lots of fun for a rainy Thursday. I only have nine 30 second exposures to work with which isn't much. So tell me what you think. Hopefully, I'll be able to collect several hours of data this winter.
