    Default My first AstroPhotograph picture



    I am new to the hobby of Astronomy, I have had an interest in the stars for many years, but I have decided to try my hand at using a DSLR camera to take photos.
    So, 4am this morning I thought I would try it out, with different camera settings, I have a Canon EOS Rebel Xti 400d on a tripod. I set to ISO 800, at 30secs to the south here at home and I have taken a few shots of Scorpius constellation and part of the milk way. I want honest thoughts, how do they look? To me I was very surprised to get anything since this was my first try.
    I will upload a picture for comments. I seem to be having issues adding an attachment, I will try again!

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum!

    The forum is having issues with attachment uploading. It doesn't work at present. Your best bet is to utilize another image hosting site (Flickr, Astrobin, etc) and link to the image here.
