I know you are out there, I have seen your work.
I created this thread for you to show off.
Whether you use just a camera and tripod, or have your own home observatory, lets give other a chance to see what you're up to in the dark!
Myself, I've only had the opportunity to take photos with a tripod, and digital camera with manual settings. Still, you can capture moments in
"space time" that look pretty nice. That is, if you practice.
Here is a lunar eclipse from a number of years ago. I tried to leave the aperture open long enough to see the moon, and a couple of stars.
Taken with a Sony A-100. I was really just getting used to it. Has to take dozens of practice photos to get the settings correct.
I'll post more later.
The reason is this. I'd like to try and avoid a flood of images in each post. Keep it at one or two images (or videos). per post. And tell a little
story with each one. As much as you remember. Perhaps the gear used, the story of how and why you took the image.
I think collectively we might be able to raise interest in this hobby. To let others see what can be done at all budget levels. Constructive criticism
will be welcome.
Remember, there is the potentially show-stopping comet coming in the latter half of 2013. Let's make sure we have lots of eyes on the sky, Trained
