Ah, the good life! “Probably one of my favorite things to do is sit outside underneath the stars,” said astrophotographer Harley Grady from Texas, who took this self- and galactic-portrait on June 19, 2012. Grady said this is a single 30 second exposure, with a red LED light to illuminate himself and 6″ Dob telescope.

How many of our other readers could take a similar picture of themselves?

    Sometimes you just need to step away from the eyepiece and simply admire the view.
