Astrophotography (Progress)

Posted 02-19-2016 at 08:19 PM by Vexen
So, I've finally taken better pictures, but I'm going to need a remote to make them less blurry. (The resolution will improve too, eventually).

It's a picture of the Orion nebula, if anyone is wondering.

There's an unwritten rule that you shouldn't make another blog if you already have one in "The latest 5 blogs" to prevent spamming.

I don't think anyone will do anything about it, but you just could say it in the comment under your last blog. Yes, we notice if there are new comments.

Rules aside, that's incredible! To think you can view something so detailed that's thousands and thousands of lightyears away. Absolutely amazing, well done!

Yeah, Part of the blog was edited. I said something like, "I'm spamming the blogs right now, so I'm going to move over to my steam profile for posting pictures." I guess it I closed it before I actually added the changes.

How long is the exposure? I have a friend who's motorised his telescope so that it tracks the sky, to enable really long exposures. I find that rather impressive.

Can you tell me the settings you used for the camera? I'm still trying to work things out with my own.

My settings for these pictures ISO: 1600 and Shutter speed: 30 seconds.

It's weird to think that we're looking about 1,300 years into the past.

I have no idea how people even take photos of anything with a telescope. I can't even see anything on the screen...

I fucking suck at this so much.

If it makes you feel any better, I can't either. I haven't found out how to project the image onto the LCD so I can actually SEE what I'm looking at. Using the viewfinder is terrible, because focusing the telescope while looking through a tiny hole in the camera is impossible.
