As the full moon has been up and washing everything out and it's been really windy here in the UK I thought I'd give some wide-field shots a try with my Canon DSLR (all the wide-shots) and my bridge superzoom camera (Jupiter and moons) to save my scope being blown everywhere.

Had to crop a lot of roofs of houses out of the bottom of these shots and couldn't expose too long because of the moon glare.

Anyway here they are:

Cassopeia and Andromeda

Orion wide-field

Orion cropped

Pleiades

Ursa Major

Jupiter and Moons

Cheers. I had to crop the bottom of all the Orion shots as the scenary in my area isn't that great compared to some of the other shots on here (just rows upon rows of houses to the South). Shooting over gardens isn't too bad though.

All of these were on a Canon EOS 700d with the stock 18-55 IS STM lens that comes with it.

Orion shots
1 exposure 16 secs ISO 800 18mm f3.5 (exp stepped up + 1ish in raw editor)

Cassiopeia
1 exposure 26.3 secs ISO 800 18mm f3.5 (exp stepped + 1ish in raw editor)

Pleiades
1 exposure 60 secs ISO 800 28mm f4

Ursa Major
1 exposure 5.5 secs ISO 800 18mm f3.5 (exp stepped up + 2ish in raw editor)


The Jupiter and moons shot was on a Canon SX40HS super zoom bridge camera, data was: 1 exposure 1/200 secs ISO 125 35x optical zoom + 3.125 digital zoom


Both cameras were on an EQ3-2 Pro equatorial mount which my scope normally sits on.

To go with my Orion widefield, here's my first scope and camera go at the Orion Nebula.

(About 22 mins total exposure at ISO 800 before clouds rolled in)



Merry Christmas ATS users!

Looking down into the Flathead Valley. Canon 40D, Rokinon 14mm wide angle lens, 15 sec, iso 640


This is a fantastic photo.

Do you have a link to a larger version?

That is a very beautiful picture bro. Usually I prefer to not see city lights, but you nailed it in that shot. ~$heopleNation

Hi All HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

This is a quick post to show a major problem living in a built up area, I live in the middle of a housing estate of about 150 houses in a small town surrounded by some larger towns and within 10 miles of a major city.

This photo below is taken at f4, 20 secs at iso 3200, 18mm focal length. I used the high iso to really show the problem.

Orion in the center, Taurus top right and Sirius bottom left.



Yet with a little bit of editing.



That shows it's always better to travel as far from built up areas as possible but if you cant you can still get some pictures done.

OUCH! Now that is some light pollution!

Good job on the editing though.

Here's my first DSO attempt with a finder guider system I set up over the Christmas period.

About an hour and a quarters worth of exposures (only a test run) made of 5 min, 3 min and 1 min subs at ISO 1600, with flats, darks and bias.

Hopefully can get some better shots as I get use to guiding.

Andromeda

Not had a lot of time lately so here's three from closer to home (all from Saturday 11 Jan)
(Click on the thumbnails for bigger images)

Moon in late afternoon through a bridge superzoom camera


Moon at night through my scope and Canon EOS 700d


First close up attempt of the moon (through a Philips Toucam webcam on my scope and 2x barlow)


I might put another of my Jupiter efforts up when I've processed them. Anyone else got any shots, getting kinda quiet on this thread since Christmas?

I've had nothing but clouds since the last shots I posted. Pretty bummed about it

Tell me about it... all we've had in the midlands is wind, rain, wind, rain and repeat for the last few weeks. Saturday was the only clear break.
