  • Astrophotography

    I have got my canon T-Ring adapter and am awaiting arrival of a telescope that is at my In-Laws cabin up in the WV mountains to start to tinker with astrophotography. I am not sure of the Telescopes specs until it arrives but was wondering if anyone did this and can give me some pointers.

    I don't do this with telescope, etc - just my lenses for things like star trails. I have read some of the information at the sites below:

    Good luck and don't forget to post some of the pics

        I'd sure like to try some myself. Since there doesn't seem to be a lot of people doing it, hope you'll journal your success/failures as you get started and share the info with the rest of us.

        Done some moon pics with a regular lens but never used a real tele. Tried a few solar shots with dismal results too..

        Moon pics out HERE.

        Love to step past the moon shots some day.

          I read a interesting article on astrophotography in Outdoor Photographer the other month, which might help. I tried some shots outside of Morgantown, but there was still too much light pollution. Let us know how it worked out for you. Also, where did you pick up the T-ring?

            I got it off of Ebay for like $20 or so.
