A place to discuss Jim Solomon’s astrophotos.

Launched!

The new and improved, totally revamped, SaratogaSkies.com web site is on the air!  Thanks a million to my Dear wife Lyena, web goddess of the similarly amazing Wisteria Moon web site, for the wonderful presentation and functionality of the new site.  Some hightlights:

  • All images are categorized by object type, by scope, by camera, etc.  Use the “category” buttons on the left to see a list of matching images.
  • A full-text search feature is also available.  Know the object you’re looking for by name?  Just enter, e.g., “Horsehead” (without the quotes) into the Search field on the upper-right, and a list of matching images will be displayed.

Please provide feedback on the new site.  What do you like?  What don’t you like?  Enjoy!

  1. I love the new site Jim, the layout style is very clean.

    The white background when browsing images by category seems a bit bright. I wonder if it is possible for you to use the same color as when viewing an individual image?

    Good job!

  2. Thanks DrHalpha — I think we agree! We darkened it a smidge. Does that look beter?

  4. Jim,

    Nice work on the web site.

    When displaying objects by catalog I would prefer to have sorting by catalog number (rather than date)

    Just my $0.02.

    Clear Skies,

    Gert

  5. That’s a great idea, Gert. I’ll check with the Web Goddess to see if she can implement that. :)
