It was last week, (barely). Now it is too close to the sun to be visible, with perihelion on the 28th. If it survives perihelion maybe it will be visible again in early December.

Antza2, very nice pictures! You live far out on the countryside I suppose?

I live in a small town. I drive a few kilometers to the countryside to take pictures.

While ISON is getting too close to the sun to see it, it begins to appear on the solar observatories. It's now visible on the COR2 Behind:

These are a bit blurry because of insane wind that kept wobbling the camera.



Took more.

I haven't seen the Milky Way yet this season. sad

My sky quality meter set a new record last night, though. During a local power failure that lasted an hour. 19.84 mag/arcsec². It's still pretty light polluted, though.

I have been away from light pollution more than ever this fall, so I've seen the Milky Way at least 10 times, very prominent at some points smile

Awesome pictures Antza2! What camera are you using and how long exposure? smile

My camera is a Canon EOS 650D
I also use an iOptron SkyTracker,
a programmable remote shutter,
a sturdy tripod with adjustable mount,
and a polar finder app for my smartphone.

Exposures for these images are around 2-3 minutes.

I was thinking of doing a tutorial video on astrophotography. Is this a good idea?

It's a great idea! smile

I always have a problem finding focus, the stars just get blurry and there is no sharpness. This is a picture I took half an hour ago


Exposure 30 seconds, 1600 ISO.





Love Space Engine!

You should find a distant light source and try to fucus on that. i use the lights of a nearby telephone tower.

Jupiter, Venus, the Moon, and distant street lights make good focus targets.

I tried to focus on Vega (Jupiter was about 1 degree above the horizon at the moment...) but it didn't work as good as I was hoping sad

Can't you simply focus manually to infinity? I can on my Nikon lenses but not on Canon lenses.

Yeah, Vega is not bright enough to serve as a useful focus target for wide-angle images.
