    First time at Cannock Chase!!

    Beautiful pictures!
  5. What I find that works for me is for Orion is a Exposure of 1/90 and ISO of 80 (Works for my iPhone) I would say get a app with sliders I use Camera +2 and you can sit there and play with what gives you the best image
  6. So.. It being early morning I had a lot of trouble compensating for the amount of light that my iPhone camera would receive during this time xD So a lot of fiddling with the exposure lights and shutter times I managed to get some really interesting pictures These photos were taken between 0530 and 0610 I don't know if the blue color of Venus is caused by the planet itself or the atmosphere.... But the blue is so beautiful in the first picture!

    Quick session - 8th Dec 2019

    I have a quick question... My Orion only comes in white... Am I missing a specific filter that will help to see the red color? or is light pollution in my area to high to see more colors besides white.
  14. A few images I was able to take with my iPhone through Dobsonian… Quick question though? Is it light pollution why my Orion looks white? I always see pictures with a red or a pink tint to it... But mines always white.. is it due to the light pollution? or am I suppose to view this object through a red filter?
