Final batch of photo’s from my trip to London is from Greenwich. Maria had treated me by taking me to the Visions of the Universe exhibition and Royal Observatory. Before that we stopped off at the Cutty Sark, which was underwhelming compared to the HMS Belfast, but as we brought a single ticket for all [...]

London Aquarium

Another place I went too while on holiday was the SEA LIFE London Aquarium. Taking photos was difficult because of the glass and lighting so only a handful came out worthwhile. Keep that in mind as while we took close to 500 photos, only 100 of them were usable. All of the ones with me [...]

While on holiday in London, I got to visit the British Museum with Maria. Due to time constraints, I don’t think we got to see everything as the place is massive. We worked our way around the best of it and took just under a hundred photos in the process. The full collection of photos [...]

Full moon photo

From the parts I have at present, I am able to do a prime focus setup where I can hook the DSLR directly to my NexStar 6SE with just a T Adapter and T Ring for my Canon. The issue is that as its not the eyepiece projection method, I can’t get extra magnification from an eyepiece in the [...]

First few DSLR photos

By |2017-01-06T16:01:05+00:00February 21st, 2013|Categories: Astronomy, Bath, Blog, Photography|Tags: , , |0 Comments

Having purchased a Canon EOS 1100D and a cheap 50mm f/1.8 lens, I headed out to Lansdown last week when there was some clear sky and started taking some test shots with my camera and working out how to use the thing at night. Most of these are just five second exposures, couple of images [...]
