Simeis 147 Supernova Remnant
by Rogelio Bernal Andreo (DeepSkyColors.com)
Like me, Rogelio is a San Francisco Bay Area resident. Obviously Mr. Andreo has mad skills and dedication to astrophotography. See his portfolio for more work.
It would seem that Rogelio and I are linked somehow. We both won in our categories in 2010, and we both were runner’s up in 2012. Above is my runner-up shot. Click the picture and read the story about the lost hikers we met on our night hike up Half Dome.
You can view a slides show of all the photos submitted to the contest here. Warning: There are a LOT of them – 688 in the over teen category (I’d call it adult, but that word seems to have a different connotation).
KQED has listed the content of the May 18, 2011 Quest show on their website. My segment in the episode was taped on March 15th. From left to right below are Josh, the assistant producer, night photo guy (me), Amy, producer, and Helen the sound engineer. Also featured is Helen’s four-footed companion. It was a fun time – especially since it was pouring rain before we got here!
What’s the Quest episode about? Well this episode (#503H) is:
