Welcome to the Canon DSLR Astrophotography Group! please introduce yourself here
hi, my name is rudy after getting my firsts telescope 120-mm f8 orion refractor , about a year after i got interested in astrophotography so after a few weeks of research i decided that i would take the dslr approach (10 d) however Im limited by light pollution. Has anyone used the 10 d for imaging any pointers would be greatly appreciated
Hey All.. Stephanie here. I'm a late bloomer in the Astronomy & Astrophotography realm. I have only had my Meade ETX-70AT for 1 year and my Canon Digital Rebel XTi for two years. I recently have married the two in the last 3 months. I am happy to be here and can't wait to learn from you all!!!
hi Stephanie i have seen your photos of the moon, they were very good keep at it
Hi folks, Art here.
I have a Meade ETX-105 EC and a Celestron NexStar 6SE - both purchased within a couple of months of each other at the back-end of 2008/start of 2009. Both have been used for astro-photography of the Sun and Moon with my Canon 400D with some degree of success (I manages to image sunspot group 1024 when it made its brief appearance recently). Boy, is AP a steep learning-curve, especially processing!
Hello all, my name is John I currently have a 2003 Meade LX200GPS that you may find hard to believe just starting using it this past month...been a little busy Took some time to get the software updated and everything corrected including myself. As for my camera gear I have a wide assortment of items starting with my new Canon 50D to a Canon G10 that I use for underwater photography. I hope to pick up some good advice along the way.
Hi Guys! Are from Norway here. I'm a photographer and journalist by passion and profession, and though I've been interested in astronomy since I was barely old enough to speak, I'm new to astrophotography. I got my first real (ie non-cardboard-and-plastic-lenses) telescope last year, a Skywatcher 1145PM, but I'll probably get a Celestron CPC 800 in a few weeks, and plan to piggyback the Skywatcher on that. As for camera, I use a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, which I am very happy with (sample pic here) and way too many lenses. This is also the camera I plan to use for astrophotography, at least until I can figure out which Canon DSLR to get and IR-modify for deep space stuff. For planetary subjects, I figure the 5D2's video feature is the dog's bollocks, if only someone can point me in the right direction for what software to use for extraxting the best frames. Must of course support the 5D2's 1080p.
Not strictly speaking astrophotography as such, but some shots of the moon and venus (and various other things) taken with a variety of Canon gear, that I thought I'd share with you: Tower, moon and Venus: 5D Mk II, 85mm f1.2 II, 1600 ISO, 1/30 sec The moon: Canon EOS 30D, 300mm f/5.6 1/250 sec, 200 ISO The moon and cormorant: Canon EOS 5D, 300mm f/8 1/500 sec, 400 ISO Venus at dawn in Kenya: Canon EOS 1Ds MkIII, 35mm f/1.4 1/30 sec, 200 ISO
Thanks Great shots John and Aetius!
Thanks for the welcome. Great to have contact with others who have such interesting hobbies!
I also live in Norway (Asker, just west of Oslo) - Hello Aetius!
I use a Canon 350D, not purchased with astrophotography in mind, but since it takes better night sky pictures that the dedicated astrocamera I had a while back, I use that now.
Looking forward to next week, when the present phase of the moon has passed.
Hope for dark, clear skies,
