Just a Pretty Picture!

Arcturus JPEG

Just a pretty picture of the Star Arcturus in the constellation Boötes. Bizibilder took this first last night as it is a very bright star and he could use it to focus his camera and telescope.  The “cross” is due to the design of the telescope used (called a diffraction pattern).  Some folk think they look pretty others hate them!  Bizibilder, as always, prefers to sit firmly on the fence!!
