  1. Hey everyone, I took this shot in a rush in my backyard, before I got totally clouded out.
  2. Those are some great images! I think the first one would be even better if you took a couple more photos and made a vertical panorama.
  3. I was really quite happy with this shot. Minimal editing, just beautiful imaging from a standard Canon 450D. Please let me know what you think!
  4. Hey everyone. I didn't quite know where to put this, but I figured this would be an appropriate link. I just wanted to share this video by a photographer called Greg Gibbs. I find his work amazing, and he's a real inspiration to me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJpNkXBvPjs
  5. Hello Adam, thanks for the reply. I used an ISO setting of 1600, exposure of 13 seconds and an aperture of 3.5. The ISO and aperture ate at the very end of how far they go.
  6. Hey everyone. Whilst on holiday up in Kessingland near Ipswitch, I found that the skies were fairly unpolluted, so much so that I saw the Milky Way with my own eyes for the first time. (I live in London) Anyway, I took a few photos with my Canon 450D and 18-55mm lens. I'm not a beginner at photography, but I always like suggestions and constructive criticism, so please. Tell me how I could have improved! Thanks.
  7. Hey, I just received my first telescope, a Skywatcher 200p EQ5 which everyone here helped me decide on. Thanks very much for all the advice and patience, though I'm sure I'll be back asking for more help, haha. Hopefully some clear skies!
  8. How did you expose for 120 seconds and not get any star trails?
  9. Here's a picture of the ISS passing overhead, so bright it shined through the clouds! :]
  10. Memory cards are a good idea if I'm considering time lapses I guess... :]
  11. Hey everyone. I've got a bit of money together, (about £200), and was wondering about any accessories I should buy for my Canon 450D to improve my results. I'm happy with my lenses for the moment, and I won't be modifying it, as it's a shared camera. I was just thinking about filters, intervalometers, that kind of thing. Even more specifically, I'm more of a wide field astro photographer, not deep sky imager, and I live in suburban London too. This is my Flickr account, please have a look to tell me how I can improve, and possibly understand what I need to buy for improvement. http://www.flickr.com/photos/90640703@N03/ Thank you!
  12. Thank you. That's kinda a bummer, we're getting a SkyWatcher 200p EQ5, with a lot of persuasion for the budget and one of the major selling points for me was the automatic tracking as I'm sick of my old scope spinning around right now. I guess I'll buy the motors later. It's like buying a TV without the power cable, stupid.
