YES! A local Leica store!

Finally, there's a Leica store in our area! Just opened in Bellevue Square least until they get their own digs.

Finally the PNW has a local place to go for all-things-Leica. How jazzed am I? :)

Got to talk with the local rep today and I also had a look at the lust-worthy Leica 50mm Summicron Apo-chromatic lens. I'd trade my Summilux ASPH in a heartbeat! We're talking about love-at-first-sight here! ^_^

Dead Stars

I keep seeing these memes about how all the stars we see in the night sky are dead.

 *****THIS IS WRONG*****

Most visible main sequence stars in the night sky are still burning strong with plenty of life left.

The light reaching us from stars so far away (and so long ago) that they *are* actually dead, is too dim to see with the naked eye.

...and remember there's *new* stars in those distant regions whose light hasn't even reached us yet.

Bro, do you even science? ;)
