From Bill's blog:

The first piece this week is on Astrophotography. Anthony Shostak at the Bates College Olin Arts Center has put together an exhibit highlighting the work of some of the greatest astrophotographers in the world. Among them are a few from Maine including Kirk Rodgers who has been the subject of a profile on Bill Green's Maine.
The exhibit is meant to be a teaching tool and the college ran a seminar during a recent break in the academic schedule. The seminar took us to West Branch Pond Camps about fifteen miles east of Kokadjo in a place called Township A Range 12. Here Eric and Mildren Stirling run the oldest continuously operating sporting camp in Maine.
Their special guest during our visit was Babak Tafreshi and internationally renown astrophotographer who lectures some Bates students and faculty on the art/craft/science of astrophotography.
I am interested in the activity and mesmerized by the pictures. The best place to see them is at the Bates College exhibition of Starstruck at the Olin Arts Center.
