All Star Telescope Star Party at the Painted Pony Resort

The All-Star Telescope star party ended, and the guests have returned home but work has not stopped.  The image processing from 2 weeks of astrophotography has been underway back in Canada.  One astrophotographer, John McDonald , made some outstanding photographs and videos during his stay and has shared some the work with the Painted Pony Resort.

Milky way over the Painted Pony Resort


  1. The time lapse on the Milky Way is very nice I had to watch it 2 times. The Milky Way over the Painted Pony should be framed!

  2. The group of astronomers were very talented and made some incredible images of nebulae and galaxies while they were in residence.
