One of the easiest and brightest double stars in northern sky is Mizar and Alcor, located in Ursa Major. With no telescope nor telephoto lens I took yesterday night this image, just using the conventional Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens and Canon EOS 450d (Rebel XSi) DSLR camera.

I shot 10 subframes of 10 seconds each and then stacked'em up with Nebulosity2 software.

Such a beautiful post sis! I thoguht again yesterday, that we don't need to be rich to be happy. We don't need to have a lot of things to make us be happy. The very simplest act, that what counts, that what matters.My very significant moment is that sit and look far. Without any music, with very comfortable shorts and shirts maybe. Don't care how my hair looks like, never care about make-up.If there's someone besides me to join, that would be perfect. That's how I know that's a right person for me. Do things without say anything. Not be awkward without conversation.Simplest thing. To have an eye to recognize that, that is the simplest and a great thing.
