  1. Hello I am very new to astrophotography, I'm struggling to currently get any image apart from bright objects, such as Vega and the moon. I am taking images through my telescope using an adapter with a telescope eyepiece inside. I can see the image I want through the viewfinder, but cannot using live view or when I take the photo. I'm positive I'm using the incorrect settings, but unsure where to start as there are conflicting opinions everywhere! Last night's attempt caught Vegas, and a lovely bright double star, but couldn't see M13 through live view though we could through the viewfinder. Any suggestions gratefully received. Thank you. Mazzy
  2. Hi folks, this is for the budget AstroPhotography lovers or extremists. Please comment! This picture is one of several attempts and was taken a while back (October 2011) with a Nikon D3100 on a tripod and I recently decided to re-process it after I found out how to nicely play with the histogram in Adobe Lightroom (Since I moved to an apartment just after I bought my scope, all I can do ATM is reprocess my old experiments). Cannot recall the exact settings at the moment, but they should be as follows: - Nikon D3100 on a cheap tripod - Sigma Telezoom 70-300 at 100 mm - Aperture: F/5.6 or more - ISO 800 or most likely 1600 - 15" seconds exposure or less Given the low magnification, star trailing is not showing much. Playing with the histogram in Lightroom allowed me to darken the background getting rid of an orangish gradient / noise caused by the public low pressure lights (see following pic), and to highlight the nebula itself. Noise or I guess hot pixels are showing everywhere in the photo but overal I'm happy with it as it shows that you can see and appreciate what's up there with just few seconds of exposure and without any special equipment worth astronomical prices. Can this be improved any further? The following is the original version I published on Flickr, that is just a JPEG conversion of the original raw file. Any comment / advise will be appreciated. All my pics (including non-astro) can be found on My Flickr Page. Clear Skies
