Pieces of Sky



Attention astronomy and astrophotography enthusiasts: Deep Sky

Southwest has arrived!



Deep Sky Southwest is an exciting new computer screensaver featuring

50 stunning astrophotos captured in the American Southwest by amateur

astronomers. The product was developed by the non-profit organization

TAAS (The Albuquerque Astronomical Society), and includes both color

and black & white images of galaxies, nebulae, clusters, constellations,

comets, and other celestial delights.



Deep Sky Southwest was created using professional screensaver

authoring software. It installs easily and runs without a hitch on

Windows operating systems. The screensaver comes packaged

in a jewel-case with a full-color cover. Included is an informational

insert explaining the objects seen on the screensaver, making this

an excellent educational gift for children of all ages. Actually, it is a

wonderful gift for anyone-you don't need to be an astronomer to

appreciate the beauty of the cosmos.



The images on Deep Sky Southwest were donated by amateur

astrophotographers David Nelson Blair, Nancy Davis, Carl Frisch,

Barry Gordon, Dan Richey, and John Sefick. The screensaver was

developed entirely by volunteers, as a fundraising project to support

TAAS's public astronomy outreach activities.



For ordering information, as well as to view some thumbnail images

from the screensaver, visit www.taas.org/screensaver.
