I like shooting aircraft and other things in the sky – got a two-for-one here.
I think this is one of the coolest things about the internet. You can browse through the latest images sent by NASA / JPL’s Cassini spacecraft as it orbits Saturn, and in some cases you may be looking at them before they’re processed and made available to researchers. This link shows you the latest 500 images. See space exploration as it happens.
Some images from the raw feed:
May not look like much, but I’m very happy to get this much detail without a telescope. Used my Nikon D60, a tripod, and an 18-200mm zoom lens. A 0.5 second exposure at f/5.6.
Thanks to Avital Pinnick, who published a great post on how to photograph Jupiter. http://apinnick.wordpress.com/2010/11/03/how-to-photograph-jupiter/
