The above photograph was taken handheld at f/5.6 for 1/2 sec at ISO-4000 with focal length 61 mm as an experiment with a new camera. This photograph has been adjusted for saturation and brightness.

Any astrophotography advice is gladly welcomed.

C-SPAN3: Atty. Gen. Holder Faces Senators on Judiciary: Code Pink on briefly after the event...

Atty. Gen. Holder Faces Senators on Judiciary Cmte.

Washington, DC
Wednesday, March 6, 2013

The Senate Judiciary Committee heard from Attorney General Eric Holder in a hearing entitled “Oversight of the U.S. Department of Justice.”

The committee questioned Holder on a wide variety of issues including the effects from sequestration for Holder's agency. But lawmakers focused on the CIA drone bombing raids abroad.

Last week, the Attorney General warned that budget cuts mandated through sequestration will have a “profound” effect on the Justice Department. He said that cuts to the FBI, ATF, U.S. Marshalls, & U.S. Attorneys will limit the department’s capacity to investigate and solve crimes.

Sequestration, the mandatory across-the-board budget cuts agreed to in the Budget Control Act of 2011, took effect last Friday. This year, the federal government will have to make $85 billion in cuts, split evenly between defense and discretionary spending.



After the hearing ended and the room was clearing, Code Pink had a few moments to address the people who were leaving. C-SPAN 3 broadcast this until a Senate staff member(?) approached the Code Pink gathering and ask them to leave the room.

Code Pink is keeping up the good fight. Kudos to them: http://www.codepink4peace.org/
