Also ~ school will be starting next week and I'll need to fight the urge to get out the scope instead of preparing for lectures, etc. Sigh!
These pictures were taken without the aid of the telescope lens. The camera was mounted on the optical tube which was being guided. I was pleasantly surprised that the fov in the scope lined up pretty darn well with the camera :-) I used an 85 mm f/1.8 Opteka lens. Several photos were cropped.
M42 / Orion Belt and Sword; t = 8 sec, ISO = 800
ET Cluster in Cassiopeia; t = 8 sec, ISO = 1600
M45; t = 3.2 sec; ISO = 800
Oops! I need to clarify here I used an "Eyepiece Projection" technique - for the first time. So taken through the telescope / 20 mm eyepiece =) Jupiter; t = 1/40 sec, ISO = 400
Some pics of Comet Lovejoy through the telescope ~ no stacking; ISO = 1600 for all
t = 15 sec
Waning Gibbous Moon ~ t = 1/200 sec, ISO = 200
ALL for now.... =)
