Space Photography
« on: July 25, 2007, 05:07:08 PM »
I was thinking about starting a topic like this one ;)

So I just grabbed my crappy camera and looked at the sky trying to take some good snapshot of something worth seeing.

I found Moon-Jupiter-Antares relatively close together and tried to photo them. But since I only have a crappy camera, this was the best I could get. The first picture is the triplet; Antares is close to the Moon so it is hard to see because of its moonlight. The second picture is Jupiter with the camera with digital zoom at the maximum.

Wow. Nice job nonetheless. How long was the exposure for that pic?

It's a simple digital camera, so no control over exposure time.

Endy, I do not have telescope too ^^"
but the light pollution can be a problem :/ I'm lucky enough to be able to see Andromeda galaxy with my binocular through my window (if the weather is good xD) :/ But I'm not living in the center of my city :/ and my city is far smaller than Jakarta :/

Nice. You just got my interest, I love space photos I think they're soo cool. I love the lunar eclipse, I've never seen one (where I live we can't see it) so thats awesome.
