My first real astrophoto (not counting some Moon shots), the Orion:



Taken with Canon 600D and Sigma 70-300 lens, 1sec exposure. No tripod and the full moon nearby spoil the shot somewhat, but I'm still very proud of it. You can see the Orion Nebula!

For a 1 second shot with no tripod that's a pretty good result, nebula and all!

Thank router!

Here's a couple of shots of tonight's slightly-past-full moon, my best so far. Perfect focus, and some craters start to get visible around the Moon's limb. The second image is overexposed and sharpened to show those craters better.
Shot with Canon 600D and Sigma AF 70-300 DG lens.

Very nice!! Have you checked into chdk for the powershot?. I used it on a Powershot SX150 a few years ago.

The comet wasn't predicted to become visible with the unaided eye until late January or February 2015. But comets can be unpredictable, with chaotic surface activity as they heat up and melt while nearing the sun during orbit. Since summer, the comet's brightness has shot up by hundreds of times.


Comet Lovejoy

Looks like we may have a comet to photo



Hope the clouds clear out.

I attempted to see if I could capture any inkling of the northern lights here in MI, since the K-index is at 5, and the local mets seem to think we have a slight chance of seeing them. It was a resounding "no" for my attempt, so I took a long exposure grayscale instead, for something different.

A 30 second exposure straight up from my backyard, bottom of the picture going northward, top going southward.
Edit: No tripod, either. Set the camera down on the railing and hoped nothing wiggled it.



Not bad viewing here for being in a pretty good sized suburb skirting the edge of a big city

I was trying to spot Lovejoy last night but still too low in the haze of freezing fog. Probably need to wait a week for it to rise a bit higher to get a decent shot of it.

I'm impressed by the talent here and I've learned a lot reading the thread. Thank you all very much.

Finally caught a clear night with no wind and managed to grab some quick shots of Comet Lovejoy (C/2014/Q2).

No telescope, just a zoom lens at 250mm on my EOS 700d camera on my telescope's motorized tracking tripod.
Couldn't take any really long exposures as the position of Lovejoy is really awkward due to trees from my back garden and couldn't polar align the tripod properly.

Anyway here they are:
Test, finder shot, ISO 800, 5.6 seconds (but tweaked exposure in raw editor)

Overexposed raw image trying to get some tail

Handstacked sequence of 7 raw images in Photoshop (45 seconds per shot).

Here's another widefield with Lovejoy about a third of the way from the bottom right from 24 January. First time using this camera lens and probably had it open too wide at f1.8 - either that or my focus wasn't spot on as some of the stars are a bit bloated.
