Great pic! Somewhat scary, isn't it?

Hi Dr. Les, thank you for your kind message. Yes, although this photo can take our mind in to some scary thoughts. But, I love the fact that we have a Moon. Wish we had even more than one Moon. May be someday that may happen, who knows :) Best wishes from Palm Beach, Florida. Volkan

Volcan, I can't believe what you wrote to me. What a coincidence! Did you know that it was my father (polish astronomer) who discovered that our Earth has more than one natural satellite? See, e.g., http://www.daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/K/KordylewskiClouds.html_ They are hard to see, but they are real. I can't stop regretting I haven't met you in Chicago, while you were here. Do you plan on returning anytime soon? Hope to see you. I am so grateful to you for your input on 3D imaging. Best wishes, Les

Hi Dr. Les,

Yes, I become aware of this pleasant fact recently. Thank you so very much for honoring me with your visit to my page and your kind comments. Luckily I now have 10" SC and with weather permitting I'll be able to do better Moon and beyond photography. Here is extract from the first shots about the same are of the Moon more than 13 years later which is dedicated to you and your father.

Yes, I would definitely reach you when I visit Chicago again and be thrilled to see your 3D scientific work :) I am also trying 3D microscopic imaging but have no great results worth sharing yet. I am very happy that at least a few of us fully aware of amazing potentials of 3D imaging and using it.

Best wishes from Palm Beach, FL.
