My wife and I love this picture! It looks like it should be made into a Christmas card. Nice job and thanks for sharing!

Thanks Vince! It was 19 below zero the night I took this. It was so damn cold out that when I was packing my gear up to head home the leg on my tripod snapped off. The next day when I went through all the pictures this one was originally a reject. That's an excellent idea making it into a Christmas card.

Wow, I feel super lame putting anything of mine in here with all of you actual photogs, but I'll give it a go


I have a Sony Cyber-shot HX9V, and tried to take some pictures of the Geminds last night. There was some high clouds, and light pollution, and I didn't capture much to write home about. I did finally figure out how to stack, so here's a sloppy First at that:


That's 7 images stacked, with a little deepening of the colors, contrast adjustment, slight brightening overall, and a saturation nudge.

For comparison, here's one of the originals, unedited:


They were all taken at ISO 400, and f/8. Next time, I could probably benefit from a higher ISO.

Quick edit: Forgot to mention these are 30 second exposures.

Thanks everyone for sharing . Some awesome stuff. Professional quality.

Just wanted to point out that ATS has a thumbnail option for embedding large images.

It's directly below the code box for the regular picture option on the upload page.

Looks like some images may be getting cut off, so I thought I would mention it.



Using a thumbnail also helps cut down on page load time.
(that's a shoutout for the dial up crowd)

It's all about learning. I've learned some great things in the short time I've been doing Astro. 70% of it has come by way of this thread. So don't ever worry about putting your photos up.

Awesome shots! I was really hoping to get out to hopefully capture this shower. Unfortunately the weather has been absolute crap!
I did manage to see one extremely bright one last night on the way home from the tat shop, sadly I was driving and my camera was at home.

This thread has been pretty inspiring. I've had my camera for a year and a half, and still don't know all the ins & outs of the manual mode. I don't think I'd have been trying nght shots nearly as often if this thread hadn't been around


I tried a few more tonight. I tried a higher ISO, and the noise proved to not be worth it. I decided to just stick with a low ISO tonight, since the moon is out anyway.

ISO 100, f/8, 30 second exposure for the following 3, it started to cloud up fast tonight. Amazing how you can go outside to clear skies, and 10 minutes later have cloud cover :/




ISO 200, f/14, 1/250s. Zoomed in on the moon.

The one built-in It's a point & shoot, I'm surprised at how well it takes things like night photos. Although I'd love to have a camera capable of swapping out lenses some day!

Can any one help me with picking out a camera for astrophotography? I would like to use it both with my telescope and by its self for all sky pictures and maybe even time laps. I don't really know much about cameras but I do know I can't control shutter time on my current one so its no good. I've seen people on here talk about SLR and DSLR what is the difference? Also I already have a tripod are they universal or would I need to get a new one with my new camera? Thanks in advance to any one that can help.

Here you go from the exif data

Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) [0x829A] = 300/10 second ===> 30 second
Lens F-Number / F-Stop [0x829D] = 300/100 ===> ƒ/3
Exposure Program [0x8822] = manual control (1)
ISO Speed Ratings [0x8827] = 400

A SLR is a single lens reflex, A DSLR is a Digital single lens reflex. So really your looking at film vs digital. I shoot with a Canon 40D with a Rokinon 14mm super wide angle lens. I guess really it comes down to your budget and what you want to shoot. As far as your tripod as long as it has the quick release plate on the bottom where it screws into your current camera that will fit your new one.
