Star Gazing

Just popped out between showers and caught a quicky of Saturn near the middle, and Antares diagonally right.... slightly orange looking   the fuzzy stuff is the milky way.

I guess I could get it crisper, but this was a first attempt. I suspect the heat haze will degrade the image too.... I seem to remember seeing stars more clearly by eye in Northern Hemisphere...?


Also its a low res photo.

Sill kind of amazing to think many of those spots of light are not stars, but galaxies.

Re: Star Gazing

Last October I got this long exposure shot of the Andromeda galaxy.

Re: Star Gazing

Yeah, I see it. What kinda lens, and times etc.

I was on a simple 50mm f1.4 running iso400 at 10 seconds.

Did you spot it first? I just roughly found Saturn, and then took the exposure, only to see hundreds of pinpoints I couldn't see with my eyes.

Pentax K-1

I couldn't really see it with the naked eye.  I just knew it would be there by looking at a star chart.

Re: Star Gazing

Speaking of hundreds of pin points, I took this the same night.

Re: Star Gazing

Beautiful cluster to observe from ground Earth.
Nice to dream about space, but we ain't going up there any time soon.

Re: Star Gazing

Or maybe, just maybe we can go further into space with the knowledge of Robot and Dr. Smith.
