Jupiter and more from Providence, RI
It’s been about a year since I have posted anything astronomy wise, but here are some. They are not spectacular for a few reasons 1) I have never used a Nikon before 2) it was cloudy & 3) well… it is Providence, lots of light. Oh, and the Jupiter one might actually be Vega or possible Deneb, it is hard to tell with the clouds.
Arcturus & Vega – 8/4/08
Both of these stars are double stars, and with these pictures, its quite apparent!
Lyra, upclose – 7/31/08
I decided to go 55mm instead of 18mm and get “close in” shots. This is the first one I have processed, and I have a few more which I will get on here in a little bit. Again, these can also be made for desktop backgrounds, just let me know if you want one.
More Constellations – Sprewell Bluff – Thomaston, GA (07/01/08)
Here is some more pictures from July 1 when I was out at Sprewell Bluff. In this batch, I have one of my favorite constellations – Coma Berenices, as well as one of my more favorite shots of late, Saturn, Mars and Regulus. Also included are some of Cygnus, Lyra and more.
Again, all pictures taken with the same specifications as mentioned in previous posts.
Constellations, cont. – Thomaston, GA
Here is the first batch of pictures I took this morning (July 1, 2008 ) from around 1:30am to 3:00am. All pictures are taken with a Canon EOS 350D, focal length of 18mm, exp. 30s, and iso 1600.
Also, all pictures have been edited in Paint Shop Pro.
