    The Stars and The Moon

    Thought of starting a new thread on the captures of the stars and the moon and perhaps on meteors as well.

    Let me start off with the stars.



    shot at 30sec and can see a lot of light polution from a nearby lighting.

    Whoa, great equipment you have, mick! Full Frame DSLR.....the stuff of my dreams!

    You've nicely caught the Auriga, Taurus and part of the Orion Constellations. Pretty handy, that 24mm lens.

    More, more!

    aiks, should have removed the exif data .........anyway, that FF camera is not mine and was loaned to me by Canon after my camera crashed. taken with a 24-105 lens at 24mm. indeed, the details that a FF camera captures is amazing and it is more than what the naked eyes can see but oledi returned to Canon . now kena poisoned already after playing with it for a week....

    anyway, this was taken on my trip to taiwan on the only clear night in the whole week. i knew you can identify some of the clusters...respect man. having said that, can tell me which is where?

    Insecurity is unattractive. Smile and the whole world smiles with you.
