Can you comprehend it?

With my new interest in astronomy and getting a new camera yesterday for my new telescope I present this fun quick little video. I might bump this thread when I start getting some images from deep space objects.

Check the end of the thread for Newest Space Photos! Thanks for looking!

My nearest neighbors are a mile away and we have very little ground lighting. I have a cheaper telescope and usually just look at the moon with it but that has gotten boring.

My goal for the year is to see the rings of Saturn.

What scope do you have? I just got my daughter and me an introductory scope (i.e., cheaper): Orion StarSeeker 80. It has the programable tracking device on it, as well.

Also, what camera are you using?

That's one hell of a pic man. Really impressive stuff. I think that's something I could get into with my boy when he gets a little older.

That rig is only useful when it's snapping candids of some fit coeds.

Awesome.

I took an Astronomy class and lab a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Want to buy a scope at some point, but we get too much light pollution where we live.

I've got a Takahashi FS-102 refractor on a Losmandy G11 mount and a SBIG 8300 CCD camera. Its not a beginner rig but its lighter than my beast and easier to set up. Orion makes good stuff for the most part i have a Orion auto guider and scope on the Takahashi.

When I was a kid my brother had a telescope. I also spent many a night looking through an eyepiece. But it was because we lived in the city, and I had it trained on the windows of other apartment buildings.

Almost changed my major after I took astronomy in college. But, then I remembered there aren't many jobs in it.

Pretty cool. I thought reflectors caught more light. Lots of websites for handmade reflectors.
