The best kind of telescope to use in astrophotography is a self tracking telescope. A ccd camera will give you better pictures as well but you can use a normal point and shoot.
Here are a few websites on ccd cameras and telescopes http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charge-coupled_device http://www.telescopes.com/telescopes/catadioptric-telescopes/celestron8inchcpcschmidtcassegrainwithstarbrightxltcoatings.cfm

My long trip to New York
My best friend and I took a trip to New York to visit his family. Not only was it him and I ,we also took his two children along. It took us about fourteen hours to get there.
We had such a great time once we got there and I never felt more relaxed in my life.
If worse comes to worse do what I do and grab your trusty backpack and take a hike. Who cares where you go on a hike as long as you get out.

I'll probably go on a short hike in the morning.

The program you need is called Gimpshophttp://www.gimpshop.com/( you don't need this program as long as you have a program that can layer). The reason I recommend Gimpshop is because it is free and easy to use.
The website to get simple instruction on how to do this is http://herselfswebtools.com/2007/06/.
It may seem like a lot at first but it really isn't, it is very simple to do and it will give you several ideas as far as taking pictures go.
Have fun and enjoy.

If it is cold outside defiantly wear warm clothes but most importantly warm comfortable waterproof boots.
I don't take a hiking stick if I need one that bad I will find one in the woods. But I'm not going hiking in the mountains either.Although I would love to.
If you don't know of a place to go hiking do a search of your local forest preserves.
Try to Previsualise your shots before leaving the house. Sometimes this can be hard to do especially if you've never been to the location your are going to be shooting. And most of all have fun.

Another good site is called Deviant Art http://www.deviantart.com/ where you can post photos for free or pay for a better account. You can sell prints if someone wants to buy them and everyone gets a free print account.
So enjoy the sites and have fun.
The weather is perfect there, when it rains it only rains for a short time. The beaches are great , the food is great and the wildlife is wonderful. I would have plenty of opportunities to take photos. The only problem is money would definitely have to be no object because it is expensive there.

If you would like to give HDR a go there is a free program called Picturnaut that will get you started. It's a very simple program to use.
Remember the key is to take photos not spend hours upon hours at the computer.

Well of course it would depend on what kind of shark. But im going to have to assume that we are dealing with a great white. I believe that if a bear were to get in a great whites territory that he would be to slow compared to the sharks agility in the water. One large chomp of the jaws and the bear would be gone.

I work in an assembly plant. I ,being the assembler build large molding machines for the iron foundry industry. I start a job with nothing but a frame. Like everything else I work my way from the ground up. It takes about 3 months to build one machine. There is a lot of fine tuning and troubleshooting that is involved in my everyday job.
