Tried tonight with the clear skies, made a tripod out of a cymbal stand, but the camera was still shaking around ever so slightly, so each star looked like it was trailing up and down slightly.

Can't wait for a real tripod that doesn't get bugged by the wind.

What I've managed to do from a terrible vantage point (my balcony, in the middle of the city).

This is on my Nikon D3200 (24.1mp) with a 55-300mm lens.

First and third are 1920x1200 (cropped for desktop wallpaper), and the third is 1280x1024 (focuses on the moon).

Those are incredibly crisp. For being in the middle of city, that's impressive. Keep them coming! I'm going to process the few shots I took tonight and post them up later if they're decent.

Wow, great shots guys! These pictures make me wish I had a camera.

Astronomy + photography = pure win.

Has anyone been able to get shots of the Andromeda galaxy? I once heard that it's four times the size of the full moon in the sky, but the human eye just can't collect enough light to see it.

I'm not sure about that, but I've seen it on a few shots.

Hopefully this thread becomes official thumb.gif

Wow. Some talented photographers in here. thumb.gif

It really is amazing...seeing moons/planets/nebulae through a telescope and snapping pictures of such beautiful celestial bodies that you once only saw in books.

This thread should become a club. smile.gif I'll be joining once my t-adapter arrives along with a filter kit.
