Saturn on 5/24/08


Saturn on 5/24/08

I did a bit more Saturn eyepiece projection photography last night and this is the result. I think I’m pushing the limits of my equipment at this magnification and it’s not radically better than the slightly lower magnification one I took the other night. That said, this is definitely the best way for me to capture planet images with my equipment.

I also took a number of wide-field tracking shots with the D50 attached to the weight bar of my telescope of the constellation Leo which Saturn is in right now.

Finally, today, my lilies started blooming, so here’s a shot of something completely unrelated to astrophotography:
