Seeing "Chasing Ice," a new movie that chronicles the rapid disappearance of the world's glaciers as man-made climate change proceeds, I was reminded of Francis Ford Coppola's "Apocalypse Now." In "Chasing Ice," we watch transfixed at the beauty of ancient ice mountains larger than Manhattan falling into the sea even as we are struck by the horror ... (more)

We tried the H@ filter, once in a while on galaxies. We found it marginally functional on hot new stars in dark molecular clouds in some very near galaxies. But most often it raised contrast by eliminating lots of wavelengths. Generally, with our smaller scopes & desire to see far distant 12 to 15+ magnitude galaxies, that precluded the use of the H@ filter.
The H@ filter is spectacular on a star 8 light-minutes away......... not so good on stars 300 to 500 million light-years distant, even 100,000 stars burning in the ultra-violet.
Never got the opportunity to use the H@ filter on a 40inch Dobsonian telescope on some of those near-by galaxies.
Thanks for some new ideas to me.

By the way, have you heard of the new movie, Promised Land?
Yeah, I'd like to see Promised Land. Van Sant's new movie, with Matt Damon.

Wish that greenies would stop attacking gas, however. Unless we get solid evidence that methane leaks are a major climate problem, gas is a very, very useful stopgap to replace coal while we wait for solar to become cost efficient and widespread.

New research seems to conclude that some of the latter decade rises in atmospheric methane WERE due to methane leaks. However, quite a bit of work by the gas industry lately, have slowed methane leaks. Atmospheric Methane increases have slowed in recent years, despite the increasing emissions from permafrost & Arctic Ice Shelf clathrate warming.

Correction:
'Atmospheric Methane increases' should be:
'Global atmospheric Methane increases'
