There is nothing like peering into what appears to be complete darkness to our eyes, and then looking through a telescope and seeing tens of stars.On that note, here is my homemade telescope. It may be a Nikon 300mm f/2.8 but I still designed and built the eyepiece holder and I can proudly say that it is the fastest 300mm telescope in the world. Not the greatest honor considering 300mm is a pretty short focal length for a telescope, but still. So far I have seen M41, M42, Cloud belts on Jupiter, 4 of Jupiter’s moons, a binary star system, and countless star clusters.I am very excited to say the least.

Incredible.

For the Widows in Paradise by Sufjan Stevens

For the Widows in Paradise, for the Fatherless in Ypsilanti-Sufjan Stevens

"If you have a father, or if you haven’t one, I’ll do anything for you."

250 plays

I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you. John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
