Full Moon, July 2014

It was a nice clear night with a bright full moon up in the sky, so I hauled out the telescope and camera attachments to try again with photographing the night sky.  With my setup, it takes patience, that’s for sure.  I also took advantage, this time, of using my Canon’s RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME feature of being able to use an external device, such as an iPad or iPhone, to control the camera.  This way, I could see the viewfinder of my camera on the iPad and record the image without touching the camera at all.  Makes it handy so that there isn’t any accidental movement by the pressing of the button.  I also made sure to focus the telescope for the camera’s sake – I think the last time I didn’t and the pics came out slightly fuzzy.

Long story, short, I think the pics came out pretty great! I also took some pictures of the setup.

Another Go at the Moon

IMG_3845Had another try at taking pictures of the moon, but this time via my telescope and an attachment for my camera.  It’s getting better but I know that I probably should have focused it a bit better for the camera.  Maybe tomorrow.
