Mar. 5th, 2010 @ 10:57 pm First photo with the new telescope.

img_4130, originally uploaded by adameros.

This is the small scope. I'm getting a bigger scope when I go to Portland next weekend.

The Orion nebula seemed like a good subject.

I think because the deck is uneven and I didn't go to great pains to make the telescope even, any exposures over 5 second show trails with the tracking turned on.

Also, I need to work on the focus. The image looks sharp through the camera view finder, but how small the view finder is as opposed to the final image... Yeah.

This is a single image (not stacked) of 5 seconds at 800 iso.

Aw, Orion is Niki and I's constellation. He was what kept us mostly sane on the trip down the AlCan. That is awesome having a telescope camera!
