|Cool! ... Next you'll be buying a spectrometer.|

|very good picture! you make me wish I was somewhere where I could set my telescope up and leave it set up... meh there IS no gravity: the world sucks!. |

|Looks sort of like a spectrogram |

|And here's my first try to photograph the International Space Station through a telescope.|
Exposure was 1/640, ISO was 1250
net time I'll try a lower ISO setting, the station is overexposed.
I'll edit when I'll identify what can be see on the photo.
|Heh, that's really nice! If I were you, I'd try with a faster exposure and leave the ISO as it is (or move it to one that allows for a faster shot). I assume you have the f-stop open at maximum.|
Did you compose this image, or are these actual successive exposures? (and, if so, they must have been five shots in a fraction of a second, how did you do that?).

|The Exposure is short enough. I don't see any motion blur, i was hand guiding the telescope after the station, so the relative motion was low enough, and the lower the ISO, the better the quality. |
And yes, this is a compose image, it's quite hard to catch the station in the eyepiece. these are all the "hits".
And here's a picture of Pleiades, 17 stacked photos, no scope.
I've also Ceres, as well as yesterday,
i'll shot it next nights, and make an animation.
|I miss the Pleiades. You can't see them at all here in Charlotte.|

|I'm just glad ABB has an astronomer who provided us with sky pictures.|
I went out to lake ella the other not and got a view of saturn from a nice volunteer astronomer.
it was a fun night, I got to stand around like an idea, finger pointed to the sky and ask people to gaze upwards and view a space station.
