For the Macro Mondays challenge "Inside Electronics" (July 9th 2018)

This year we replaced our old computers, and that meant destroying hard drives. I saved a few components, including a circuit board – "just in case". So I dusted it off for this week’s challenge. At last one of my hoarded items has found a use! Shot on the black glass of my Kindle.

HMM and have a great week! ;o)

Zodiacal Light

Zodiacal  Light

This panorama of 2016’s very first sighting of the Milky Way in the area was shot with a timeless beauty, a vintage Minolta lens, the MC Rokkor PG 58mm/f1.2 to be exact. I was skeptical about a vintage lens lacking all the modern lens coatings to perform the way it did. It is akin to using a 1968 slide ruler (Google it you, millennials!!) to perform a complex calculation that would require a computer now.

That is not what is special about this picture. What is special is the fact that I captured the more timeless beauty, the Zodiacal Light that is so coveted by astrophotographers.

Thanks to Wisanu Boonrawd for identifying it. Zodiacal light is a faint, roughly triangular, diffuse white glow seen in the night sky that appears to extend up from the vicinity of the Sun along the ecliptic or zodiac. In this picture you see the Zodiacal light right at the bottom center of the horizon. Zodiacal light is produced by sunlight reflecting off dust particles in the Solar System known as cosmic dust.

Patch cable goes from the analog headphone jack in my cheap Sony boombox that has a tape deck to my MacBook Pro computer that has an input jack to accept the other side of the cable. After taking the photo I noticed the dust on this thing. I guess I need to do some dusting.

Sony ICD-PX333 digital voice recorder

Sony ICD-PX333 digital voice recorder

This recorder creates MP3 files and you can copy the files to your computer for playback or editing. There is 4GB of built-in memory that can hold a ridiculous amount of audio. If you need more space, you can add a Memory Stick Micro or microSD card.

The store had another recorder with two mics for stereo sound. Nice, but it cost more than I was willing to pay. There is a mic input jack on this recorder than can be used to record in stereo.

Apologies for all the dust. Dusty product shots annoy me, and I will do better in the future.

This is my cat Nooch. Many of you may or may not know my cat but he is really awesome and is truly the best cat. I love to photograph him, and I figure that I would post something different.

This was taken with a Sony NEX-5 and for a small camera it really takes some great photos, especially when I don’t feel like taking out the big camera. 🙂

Also Something funny to add, After I finished dusting my whole room he decides to jump around on all my furniture.
