    Default DSLR of Southern Cross, Souther Pleiades, Eta C. Nebula, Running Chicken moving boat



    Near San Juan, PR on cruise ship moving about 17kmh. CanT3 and 250mm lense.

    Right Place, not enough equipment.

    15seconds, stacks of 8.

    I've wondered about cruise ships. Are they so huge that their rocking is small enough not to be a problem for viewing and even imaging? I would have guessed that at least imaging would be out of the question. But you prove me wrong!

    You usually dock in the morning. It is no good because boat moving in different directions. It would be better if the ship anchored in calm seas while out to sea on a moonless night with clear skies. If you can get to the south side of Puerto Rico or other, it would br better. Any land would be better with no lights.
