  1. It seemed to work very nicely! Got a nice shot of a windmill and stars
  2. Thanks for the responses all. I knew that you had the do it before or after the infinity mark, but I didn't know how much I should do it. I will try what ronin said, if that doesn't work I'll try practicing by zooming onto a bright star.
  3. I have a Fuji XT-1 camera and a Rokinon 12mm f2.0 manual focus lens, and I have been trying to do nightscapes. I seem to have trouble focusing properly on stars, even when I set the focus to infinity. anyone have any advice on this kind of stuff?
  4. Jupiter will be visible throughout spring, and Saturn comes around late spring/summer :).
  5. Where specifically is 45p? My star app doesn't show it.
  6. I havn't seem omega Centauri yet. But I hope to soon!
  7. Not specifically Astro gear, but I just got a Rokinon 12mm f/2.0 lens so I can take some nightscapes no pic though.
  8. Hello Jacqui! I'm fairly new as well, the awesome friendly people here are so helpful. Don't be afraid to ask questions!
  9. Yep, seen it. It's actually the first thing I look at every night. I have a picture of it but I can't post it because it's a tiff file, and I'm to lazy to convert it.
  10. The double cluster seems to be really popular! šŸ˜®
  11. -favorite constellation: Virgo -favorite star app: sky guide -favorite wavelength of light: visible spectrum -favorite dwarf planet: Pluto -favorite comet: Halley's Comet
  12. Every Friday at bromelsiek park, the St. Louis astronomical society gets together for a small but neat little star party The sound of the go-to mounts slewing every which direction is so satisfying. Plus the slightly deeper sound of the go-to equatorial of the huge 16" cassegrain in the shed.
  13. Thats something I should consider.
  14. Nice!
  15. Of all the forums I've been in, this is the best! (Has the friendlest people)
