First Lunar images..

Recommended Posts

After the crappy weather and nights where it was clear coinciding when i am busy, i have finally been able to get out there and take some pictures! Although it's only the moon i'm pleased i got something haha! I did try to image the Pleiades cluster with no motor drive and a simple digital camera, i have to say it didn't turn out too well. I think it's time to start saving the pennies for a motor drive and a DSLR camera. Although i may try some planetary imaging with an xbox cam in the near future!

What camera are you using?

Image 3 is around the correct exposure but focus needs a tiny tweak.

The camera is a Samsung PL221, Basically a cheap digital camera. Yeah i was just messing round with the settings and just couldn't manage to get the correct settings..
