Here are some images I took weekend before last, at our cub scout pack's fall camp out. Trees are being lit by our camp fire:




Those are really beautiful Erik. I like the camp fire effect on the trees. Nice work. ~$heopleNation


Nice to see you on a different type of thread SheopleNation maybe there are some subjects we can agree on

Nice picture star for you if the exif data was correct set a higher iso and a faster aperture but that was a good result from f8 iso400 if the data was correct.

Of course there are my friend. I know that I argue with a few of you sometimes in other way out there threads, but I actually like and respect you guys a lot.

I own a Telescope & Camera as well you know, it's just that I am more of a novice than many of you here. If I come across rude sometimes, I don't mean it personal. I know most of you are good people who's company I would enjoy.

What do you feel is the best program for stacking? I played around with stacking in CS6 and honestly I couldn't see a difference.

Nice reply, yes we all have our own opinions on all subjects on here, so please post some of your images lets see what you have done.

Some info on your scope & camera would be good as well.

For deep sky objects DSS and it's free DSS

For Moon/Planets Registax also free Registax

wmd, That's just it, I have no images to post. Like I said, I am a novice. I just view as of now, but I do want to learn. Funny thing is, I have been looking at the stars with a scope since I was 12 years old and I am 41 now, yet I never took it past just viewing them, nor have I educated myself about Telescopes in general.

The telescope I have now is a Saturn Meade that I purchased for a few hundred dollars back in 1998. It's nothing fancy like what you guys have, but I do want to purchase a decent telescope and learn how to take pictures like some of you do, and I am willing to spend the money.

The truth is, Even if I understood right now how to take pictures with a camera and scope, I would not embarrass myself by positing them in here.

At least you have a scope I don't, many on here don't and just use a DSLR with a wide angle lens for starscapes and telephoto for pictures of the Moon and even things like the Orion Nebula with multiple exposures and stacking software.

I mean this was done using a DSLR and some other equipment.
If you have not seen this before watch it in HD on the largest screen possible oh and a good sound system.

The only camera I have is a small digital, but maybe I should consider getting a nice one because I spend a lot of time in the high country backpacking. I would need to find a lightweight, but rugged model. Sometimes I am 11,000 feet up in elevation above the timberline just sitting out in open granite. Just with the naked eye it's amazing.

Yeah, I have seen that video before, most likely here. Right after I did I downloaded Farish's 'be near' on ITunes. Powerful song, and a very beautiful video. ~$heopleNation

Are you sure ?

Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) [0x829A] = 15/1 second ===> 15 second
Lens F-Number / F-Stop [0x829D] = 35/10 ===> ƒ/3.5
Exposure Program [0x8822] = manual control (1)
ISO Speed Ratings [0x8827] = 1000

Thats the exif data.

Nice picture have a star!

my bad I was switching settings constantly going between a 40D and Ti1 and varying exposure times

Here are a couple of my latest attempts at our local big friendly gas giant, Jupiter.




And a GIF animation that I took over about two hours (a bit jumpy as cloud cover interrupted it).



Not the best pictures you'll see but good for the equipment I used (Skywatcher 150PL and second hand Philips Toucam webcam).

Hi All

Well managed a brief visit to a Dark Sky site, got there about 40 mins before moonrise and clouds coming in 3 quick examples will post more later. All f3.5 10 secs iso 1600 one at 20mm the other 2 18mm focal length.

Pleiades & Taurus




Taurus the V shaped stars at top of picture and Orion below




Moon just about to rise the fat looking star above it is actually Jupiter and a couple of stars from Orion on the right Betelgeuse & Bellatrix.




Hope to get a few more visits done over the winter and to spend at least one full night to try a timelapse
will post others later.

A quick note it was FREEZING -7c.

Enjoy

I got registax and damn if I can figure it out. How do you do stills? All tuts I am seeing are for avi's

Registax - you might get a better answer off someone else but I think if you want to stack still images then click on 'join mode' on the bottom of the screen before you select all your still image files/frames.

I just use Registax to process the video (.avi) from my webcam and turn it into a stacked single image.

Hi All here is another image I took the other night as a little test.



Now that was done from 15 pictures using DSS, they were taken with a 70-300 zoom lens at 210mm focal length but what really surprised me was the exposure was iso 1600 f4.5 for only 2 seconds each.

I don't have a tracking system and didn't want stars to trail hence the 2 seconds it turned out better than I thought it would more so considering I was in my back garden in the middle of 150 other houses and street lights.

For those that don't know it's M42 in Orion.

Supermoon from 2013:



Comet ISON (RIP):



Stars above Sedona, AZ:

As ISON appears to be in a bit of trouble at the moment or not quite as intact as expected I thought I'd brush up my comet imaging skills with one of the other comets travelling by at the moment. So here's Comet Lovejoy from the morning of 30 November. It was just a few degrees below the pan handle in the Big Dipper. Looked like a tiny smudge in my 6" telescope but came out well with 30 and 90 second exposures.
