Another experiment in shooting the night sky. Camera was pointed almost straight up. You may notice the stars on the right side of the frame look like little dashes – that is from the motion of the stars across the sky during the exposure. Nikon D60, 35mm f/1.8G lens, 35 second exposure, f/3.2.
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/
NASA TV has a live video feed from the International Space Station that you can stream to your computer. I set it up to display in a window on my desktop. Beautiful.
