ASTRO PICTURES FROM DARKEST SALFORD!

 

Below are a few pictures taken through my telescopes in the garden - in spite of the massive light pollution in this area! Telescopes used include Celestron C8 and Nextstar 5.

                     

Above. Moon pictures taken taken on ordinary 400ASA film at about 1 second exposure - probably a little overexposed but good enough for me.

The Orion Nebula. The photo is taken using the telescope purely as a motorised mount. The camera and its telephoto lens were mounted on top of the scope but the actual telescope optics were not used at all. Exposure was 15 minutes using Fuji 1600 ASA. The light pollution is clearly visible as an orange tinge over the whole picture.
