The moon through a telescope

Prev Next

Attached the D200 to a large telescope tonight. A Celestron 9,25" Schmidt-Cassegrain (2350mm focal length at f/10) which belongs to Sævar Helgi at www.stjornuskodun.is.

This is cropped a bit, but I could not fit the whole moon in the frame.

Used mirror lockup and a remote trigger, the telescope is F/10, I used iso 400 and 1/125 exposure.

A picture of me and the setup - taken by Jóhannes Axelsson.

    Jæja Matti, nú gengur þú í stjörnuskoðunarfélagið og færð þér græjur og byrjar alvöru stjörnuljósmyndun. Þessi mynd lofar allt of góðu um framhaldið til að stíga ekki skrefið til fulls :)

    Ohh, þessi er fín. Ég hef gert nokkrar tilraunir til að ná tunglinu með 70-200-linsunni minni og 2x extender ... og ég held ég hætti því bara. : )
