And here is one my wife has taken from the street outside our house!!!
Welcome to the worldof astrophotography. That is a stunning picture of the planet and 3 moons!
Awsome mate well done
Thanks mate, I was a bit worried I might get arrested, standing in a park in the dark with my camera!!!
My wife wants to know what you think of hers, she is worried that I take better photos although she is the one who is about to begin studying photography!!!
Awesome. Seriously awesome she has 2 moons by the look of it. They do move quick. You have both taken pics of another world and it's moons !! Focus is wicked hard to get but you both nailed it.
The hardest thing was keeping the camera steady!!
I was using my 300mm lens at max zoom, with a shutter speed of 0.8" so even on the tripod pushing the shuuter release was causing the camera to move enough to blur the photo considerably.
Off now to look for a remote shutter release
Ooh, just had a thought, set the timer to say 2 secs and then I wont be touching the camera when the shutter opens
Right, I shall try again this evening and report back
Good luck my friend
bummer i keep forgetting to go look outside will try and remember tonight, with tripod and remote and a 300mm macro zoom lens
great photo simon
Me and Steven lay in bed together last night looking at Jupiter out of the window and talking about what is out there.
thats what its all about have you looked at i through your scope yet Dawn?
Not a chance at the moment. Each time we think we can set the scope up outside it clouds over.
Steven was well impressed with looking at Jupiter. Especially after yesterday - him and Ellie and Harry were helpers in the space show at the space castle. Steven was Earth, Harry was Venus and Ellie was Mercury.
Simon, you can get a remote control for the shutter for about £15 - that helps - also i found the strap blew in the wind a bit and rocked the camera
