Went out tonight to try and catch a glimpse of Lulin, but due to light pollution and cloud cover I couldn’t see it 🙁
I was playing with my zoom lens though and got some shaky pictures of stars. The SD card in my camera is wireless, so when I got back to my desk the pictures were already in picasa. I just loved the way they turned out. Cheggim out:

When I was going to CSUS I helped found a club, and one of my first few semesters there we started an event called the Engineering Expo. At the exposition, a show-and-tell for the schools engineering departments, there is a one-pound battlebot competition called Smackdown in Sactown. This year was the 5th such compeititon.
I drove Kevin’s robot, which I built for him, Emsee Frypants. I lost the first fight, but went undefeated after that all the way to the finals to win. I’m still getting familiar with my dSLR, so many of the pictures didn’t come out well, but others look fantastic. Can’t wait to take some more.
