Thats usually what Venus looks like when I am able to dial it in, usually it is a bit harder to gain focus on. You will know saturn because you will
see the rings fairly well. But what I think you are probably looking at is Venus which right now is very close to but below Jupiter setting on the
west shortly after dusk. It is the brightest (star or )planet in the sky.
Oh I thought that was an image captured through a telescope. But since it is just a picture I guess it could be anything. Kinda hard to know without
knowing which direction the camera was pointing and at what time etc.
It's hard to capture through a telescope, unless you have a special camera attached to it. When I took a picture of Saturn through a telescope years
ago, it looked like a golden necklace or simply a shiny curved line
Yeah, I was trying to get a picture through telescope but I wasn't really getting an image out of it. Just the pink in the middle and blue on the
outside. I'll try again tonight if it doesn't rain. This is just from the camera itself.
All digital camera setting usually vary, so you can mess with the f-stop and shutter speeds to. Just remember that the earth is constantly rotating so
if you let the exposure go too long it will create a trail. You can zoom in optically all the way unless you are taking a wider shot and you might get
better detail. Once on your computer you can zoom in and crop quite a bit also depending on the megapixels on your camera.
Heres a few, they are super zoomed in and cropped and the file names actually mean nothing. I named them after objects that are familiar, but truth be
told I do not know exactly what we are looking at.
