Astrophotography (finally)

So, yes, it's finally happened. I got off my lazy ass and decided to take some pictures. This is the first time I've done this, so cut me some slack. The first two pictures are of two nebulae that are just below the star Alnitak which is part of the constellation Orion the Hunter. The red dot is a hot pixel, it's definitely not a celestial object. The picture with the red dot, might not be of a nebula, it may be the result of my terrible photography (a star that's been blurred due to my shutter speed or camera movement). The other two photos are of the planet Jupiter. One has a true colour photo (or at least as accurate as I could get it) and the other has a picture with inaccurate colour with three out of the four largest moons visible. Next time, I'm going to need to remotely take pictures. I've also learned since then how to use the tracking system on the telescope, so less blurry, and longer exposure photos are going to be posted sometime during the weekend.

These look nice. I still have tons of problems taking photos through my Telescope. The moon is fine. Anything else, and my camera doesn't even pick it up.

I've been wanting some help with it for ages now.

What kind of telescope and camera do you have?

Yo Vexen, can you get any distant objects like Uranus and shit, or do you need a really powerful telescope for that?

Yes, although it would be really hard. Main problem is, my camera is directly connected to my scope, not the eye piece. So, I can't exactly, "zero in" on objects. If I did take a picture of it, it would be extremely small. Second of all, depending on where you are, you have to know if it's actually in the sky or not. Next step is finding the object, and it's easy enough, but actually getting the thing in the center of the frame is extremely hard, the only guide I have is the viewfinder, which gives this glare effect to light in the telescope.
