Been watching the weather, it's supposed to stay cloudy well into tomorrow. So looks like I won't have a window of opportunity tonight either.

I wouldn't mind getting together with local members one night to stay out and shoot the skies. Doesn't seem to be much interest otherwise with people I see daily.

Awesome! Not here, it's gonna rain today :S

The other day I got nice weather and ended up taking over 20 minutes of lights to stack but then when i came home I saw it was slightly out of focus frown.gif

Next time I suppose biggrin.gif

We'll see how this goes. My midnight tonight, it should be in a good spot.

Here's my first attempts from my backyard:



White-zone level light pollution where I live washed out all attempts at pictures of stars. Hopefully when it warms up a bit I can start taking the scope places. I gotta remember to shoot in RAW next time too... redface.gif

Just walked outside to check, and the sky is overcast again -_______-

It was clearing up all day, and the forecast was clear skies all night.

I got out last night and got a few shots! Better than my first attempt, but could still use some work. I'll post up the best one later. Right now I'm working on my wood flooring.

This is the best I could manage.



Still not crisp, but I think I'm at my limitations when it comes to what I'm using. As awesome as my lens is, I'm on a crop body and a tripod. A guided mount might yield better results.
