EquipmentMeade Saturn 4.5 inch, f/8 newtonian reflector, with a Celestron 32mm plossl. Taken with a Olympus C-750 UZ. 1/125 second, at f/2.8, ISO 200.
DescriptionBeautiful Moon setting over the northwest horizon behind some electrical wires out in the distance, on an extremely cold morning, for southern Arizona. I took this while waiting for Saturn to climb high enough for a good view. An interesting feature to notice in this photo, is the Moon's egg-like shape, due to atmospheric distortion.

DescriptionThis series of 30 second exposures taken near the San Francisco Bay area shows the asteroid passing through the same star field as that depicted by Dennis di Cicco taken from the Boston area. The shift in the asteroid track due to parallax is readily apparent.

DescriptionIt's a challenge to picture detail in Jupiter, and then sometimes it isn't. However plagued by bad seeïng, waiting for the exact moment and consistently imaging night by night delivers results. My personal challenge is to get the most out of a smaller diameter scope, in this case a 180mm or 7" Maksutov. I had some success with this picture from our beloved giant planet.
