Tonight I was playing. The clouds were covering the sky, and I was working on some last minute projects before the star party next week.
So while I was dinking around with my camera I noticed some clearing around Jupiter so I took some 1.6 second shots. Pretty ugly, but also somewhat interesting. It makes me want to do it more actually.
Then the moon was behind the clouds so I shot the moon through the clouds. Kinda cool. I took a bunch of shots and this was the best one.
Then the clouds parted for a short time and I stuck the camera prime focus in the 16" Dob @ 1829mm focal length and a Baader MPCC. I was shocked at how the color came out. Much more vibrant then it seemed looking through the viewfinder which essentially looked gray and white. I took about 50 shots and this was the most crisp. My mirror wasn't cooled and I didn't bother to collimate (because I didn't think I was actually going to do anything).
I think I'll play with this setup some more on a more serious endeavor when I'm tracking and see if I can stack up a bunch of shots in Registax or something.
There really isn't much to say about the shots other then this. I don't even really know much about the settigs I had the camera on as I was just dinking around.
None of these files are processed. This is pretty much how they came out of the camera.
