Russell Croman Astrophotography  



The Road to the Texas Star Party

About This Photograph

A number of us convoyed out to TSP together. It was quite fun. We kept in touch with each other on our two-way radios, and we practiced finding our way across our great state by celestial navigation....

This composite image was produced by digitally combining two photographs. The picture of the cars and road was taken during an actual trek out to the 2003 Texas Star Party by members of the Austin Astronomical Society. The galaxy is the fabulous edge-on specimen, NGC 4565.
