Yep, people out in the country sometimes do weird (or at least different) stuff with no zoning boards, Home Owner's Association, or other regulators around to try to standardize them, regulate them, and homogenize them.
I like to think of it as folk art. Some guy was thinking about the fence he had to build and he may have seen a notice in our local paper that the PD was selling bikes they had picked up over the years. Or whatever. Who knows? But here it is, out here in the countryside, just a fun construction by a fellow who maybe had too much time on his hands one winter.

I love it

I love it too. I love individualism because it yields interesting results.

Genuine Q on Celestron Astromaster - 70 (900 mm) - stacked from 3 images, cropped. I'm sure much better results are possible with this setup.
Great details!

I see that it's an achromat telescope, was chromatic aberration a problem at all?

That's a pretty field of flowers. Old building, in the background, adds to the picture. Nice image.
Thanks for sharing,

Thank you! No, chromatism is almost not visible. I wanted this one (70 mm model) instead of 90 mm one, hoping that even if it will resolve less it will have no abberation at all. It seems to be the case. Celestron Astromaster 70 has f 12.9 but Q seems to doesn't know that it is so far in diffraction zone - photos seems quite OK.

We are a coastal city. Here is a retired pilot boat, the Peacock, replaced by the Astoria and helicopters in accommodating weather. Note the wavy stern metal. This old boat was at the end of its useful life. It is parked in the parking lot of the Columbia Maritime Museum which is a big deal here in town. Columbia River Maritime Museum | Astoria, Oregon The second is Pier 39, now home to a saloon and a coffee shop along with a few nautical shops was once home to Bumble Bee Tuna. It is safe to say that Astoria has its finest days behind it.

That's nice, and the telescope is pretty inexpensive, congrats and thanks for sharing!

(About f/12.9, it just means that your picture's resolution is limited by the telescope not the sensor which is a good thing as far as photographs of astronomical objects are concerned. Nothing more, nothing less. Other sensors may or may not be able to claim that in this case, but that's kind of pointless unless you have access to different sensors. Enjoy capturing all details the telescope can deliver! )

Caught the photography bug after selling my K10D a while back (regret...). I bought some Auto 110s with all of the normal prime lenses and the Q10 seemed like a great, (relatively) cheap way to use them digitally. I'd like to get something nicer again eventually, but I think being able to get such a telephoto FOV in such a small package has a ton of value. I love the 110 70mm in particular with this camera. Some purple fringing, but that can be worked around. I'd like a non-fiddly way to control the aperture on the 110 lenses, but they still seem pretty sharp for being stuck open at f/2.8. I've had the camera for about a week now and it's been a blast. Rando bokeh / DOF shots and some night-time long exposures, which I had never tried before.

A trip to Oysterville, WA. (Oysterville, Washington - Wikipedia) Yes, if you guessed they are famous for oysters you guessed right. This pic is of a very small oyster midden in the parking lot of an oyster farm. The oysters themselves are named after the bay, Willapa Bay oysters, and they are a good eating oyster, especially good pan friend.

A bit of both. The city centre is still very quiet after lockdown but I was out early on a wet Sunday morning.
