PostSubject: Full Moon Syndrome    Fri Dec 09, 2011 10:21 am

I don't know what it is, but I get antsy around the full moon; more precisely, I get antsy when the full moon is approaching (~about a week before the Moon shows its full beauty to us). Once the Full Moon arrives, my antsy-ness fades and everything goes back to "normal".

It's a bit frustrating cause I'm not quite in full control of myself during that time. I lash out, for example, even though I'm fully aware of the fact that I'm overreacting while it's happening ...

I'm not sure if I do or don't get Full Moon syndrome. I do notice some certain times where I can't seem to stop being so... emotional, in the way where I'm like so feeling everything. Super upset, super happy, super whatever. Like manic in a way... going crazy maybe lol.

The moon-light intrigues me because some people go crazier then they normally would be. Which is pure myth, Although deep down I feel as though a transitional period awakes primitive or maybe sub atomic parts of our energy which are trigged in the dark wedding of the shadow of Earth and the refracted light from a silver moon from the Sun
Thus werewolves...........
or
maybe its just to bright to sleep?

I think it does relate to primitive or rudimentary aspects of our human existence. We grow up fairly sheltered from the natural world and kinda lost our connection to it ... I think that's why we fail or struggle to understand the relations.
Females, for example, tend to get their period around the full moon; moreover, if they are in a group, their cycles often align. Theories suggest this is so to better be able to protect oneself or the group. The moonlight will make it easier to see approaching threats; the scent of blood makes you an easy target. The alignment of female cycles ensures that the group doesn't have that scent of blood all months long as it would be the case if females had differing cycles.
Opposing to the full-moon stands the new moon which renders the darkness that shelters procreative activity around the time the female is fertile, provided her cycle aligns with the full moon.

Cool beans! My hub was curious when I showed him the pictures. A few years back I got him a really cheap 10$ telescope as a stocking stuffer on Christmas because he loves outer space and all that comes with it. The cheap little thing isn't horrible but it's a bit of a pain to set it up and keep it in position; taking pictures is not an option. While we lived on Hawaii where it is generally overcast at night (at least in the mountains where we lived) he couldn't use it all that much anyways. Now that we are in Texas, living on the country side, it would make sense to get him a better one; stars are abundant on the sky almost every night and cloud coverage is a rather rare occurrence.

Well, it wasn't easy to take those pictures with mine. I don't have a motor on the telescope to track the objects, neither the connectors to attach the camera to the telescope. Good astrophotography is an expensive hobby, but if you guys need some tips about purchasing a good telescope, let me know.

Tips are definitely appreciated Smile. I think it would be nice to have a telescope that makes it easy to take pictures but costs are certainly a concern. I don't think we can afford to spend more than 200-300$ bugs at the moment since I'm still in school and I have no income. Perhaps there is a base package that allows us to add features later on? That way we could perhaps get some decent quality and add the accessories for better performance later on?

You may want to postpone astrophotography for later, good equipment is very expensive. Instead you can use the $300 bucks to buy a good telescope. The best telescopes that you can buy with little money are dobsonians types. With $300 bucks you can buy a 6" dobsonian and you can see a lot of things with it.
Check at http://www.telescope.com/ skyquest xt6 classic. You will need to use a sky chart with those, but that's not big deal. Just one thing, don't expect to see color pictures like the artificially colored Hubble's pictures.
I actually found a 8" dobsonian on craigslist recently for $250. I'm always afraid of craigslist but there is not much to a dobsonian.....they are very simple.
Another good thing that you can do before spending any money is to look for a star party around you. Search for astronomical societies in your area...they hold star parties in many places. You can go and see the sky through different telescopes and have a good idea about what you can expect to see with yours.

I like the idea of Star-parties ... gotta check that out! Craigslist might be the way to go, or maybe eBay; I want decent quality but I also don't want to spend too much for it. Thank you for the input, I look into all that Smile
