 Post subject: My first planet shot
PostPosted: Fri Jun 20, 2008 7:11 am 
Hi all,

i've been really getting into astrophotography.With many pictures of the moon shot with my 70-300mm vr.

so when i got a telescope earlier this week.i was enjoying the challange of trying to take pictures of the moon through the telescope.

But then i train my eye to the next brightest point to the right of the moon.
and i found was a powerful moment for me to see this gas giant and some of its moons.
i guess you would need some serious kit to take a very good image of jupiter.but i'm very pleased with my 1st set of pictures.i tried some long exposures to keep the planets moons in shot.but as you all know it moves like a bullet.i'm sure a motorised mount would solve that as it would track the object.

but that will cost more.

But thats ok as i'm more than please with what i took.
