Thanks, probably back to DSOs for my next targets. Maybe a nice easy one like M33 (though it will be too big for my field of view) or M51.

Something simple:



Venus in the daytime.

It was only a few minutes before sunset, outside admiring the view and for some reason I decided to look for Venus. I knew roughtly where it was since I'd seen it on previous evenings after sunset.
And it turned out to be very easy to see in the afternoon sky.

So, I went back inside, got the cheap (Canon IXUS) camera and took a photo of the sky.

In the image above, I've cropped and enhanced the contrast so its easier to see... but it was plainly obvious in the original.

Great shot! Can I ask is that a single long exposure or a stack, though?

I've only taken a couple of pictures of comets and when stacking I've found if I keep the comet aligned the stars trail and if I keep the stars aligned the comet blurs - still figuring out imaging comets.

As long as we're asking questions

Would it be worth my time to look for any of the current comets with my 4" S-Cassegrain ?

It's a stack of 8 two minute exposures. I do two stacks, one aligned on the comet, one aligned on the stars, and then composite the two so that both the comet and the stars are sharp. Deep Sky Stacker has a special stacking mode that does that automatically, but I find I get better results by doing the process manually.

Sure, Lovejoy should be easily visible in a 4" telescope.

Been lurking on this thread for a while as I'm not in a place to take half decent pictures, also I don't have a half decent camera.

Some amazing pictures on here some of you are very lucky

As for you W810i your last lot of pics have been stunning. You truly are lucky to be living where you are

Keep up the good work people, our world might be going To pot but these images remind us all of the true beauty outside our planet

GREAT THREAD!

Cheers for the info, I'll give that method a go next time I'm out comet hunting.
