Admittedly, I'm getting hooked. I forgot how I loved looking at the celestial bodies, and just how fascinating this can be. But in the last couple of weeks I've found myself wishing for good weather, just so I can sneak out with the telescope to stargaze and snap some pictures.
And I have to say that for a beginner, I'm quite proud of these pictures. This was the moon, taken a few days ago.
And presto, this was the planet Saturn! It was a lucky 2nd attempt, using the DSLR as a webcam and then using astrophotographic software to stack things.
Something tells me this hobby is going to end up being very time-consuming!
