Very nice!

Here was my attempt shooting Mars with my 18-200EFS with my EOS60D

Nothing boring about it! My goal is for this to become an official thread of this section, so we can all share our passion and work. I'm using a super tiny tripod that was for a Minolta MD-11, so the camera rocks ever so slightly when the mirror does it's thing, slightly blurring the photos.

I don't know if your camera has Live View, but if you use it it helps a bit with mirror shake.

I totally forgot about the Perseids, mainly because the weather was kinda crap here. Anywho, here are some of my shots that I took at my buddy's cabin near Lake Sunapee in New Hampshire. The sky was black, and it was the first time that I can remember seeing the Milky Way. If I had a tracking mount, I would have done a lot better job at getting nice clean photo stacks, but I think the outcome wasn't that bad.

I use Live View for everything when shooting the sky. Makes focusing a breeze. But when you put a heavy camera like mine on this little tripod, it won't help, haha.

Here's a single shot of the sky with my nifty-fifty.

Wow! Great shots! Stacking and processing is still a weak-point for me.

Just as an aside, this is what I'm shooting on:

The Moon. Each is a composite of 30-60 shots.

Multi-ring basin, lower left. Very old, from when there was still huge chunks leftover debris floating around our universe. Hit so hard that it caused concentric cratering.

Jupiter.

Looking at the moons of another planet is simply indescribable. Not bad from my downtown rooftop.

Over exposed to show the Galilean moons

Inverse of the same w/labels.
