Cyan,

This video got me excited too. It looks like they are really making it easy for us noobs to get into this lately:



I am thinking of just starting with an 80mm triplet instead of 60mm. But the rig might be very similar to this one. (with my RP attached of course)

wow, I need to look more into that, it makes it simple for us lol


*update*
looks like the ASIAir currently don't support Sony Camera's so I'm out of luck for the time being, it does however support your Canon EOS RP, at least the plus version is showing it does on their site.

I did get a shot of the red moon last month. It was really low in the sky in a very light polluted area.

Cyan,

Finally got up to some decent sky and got a few shots with my RP of the Milky Way. These were shot with a 16mm fixed focal length lens, at F2.8, ISO 1600 for 30 sec exposure. Unfortunately, the Milky Way is not that high in the sky yet. But these first attempts were pretty cool. A car came into the shot in the second one and I thought it would ruin the shot. Instead, it made it more awesome







Yumm

Still a noob at post processing. But this one came out better. I learned the higher ISO shots are even better after post processing. This one was at the same shutter and f-stop settings. But with ISO 3200. The original raw is greyish. But after some minor tweaking it looks like this:

Got a T-Ring and popped the RP onto my 8 inch Dob a took this pic of the moon. Focus is a little tricky with just looking at little LCD screen. But this still came out cool. Next time I'll zoom the LCD so I can get a little better focus:

Got out again to try more Milky Way shots:



Done with 16MM fixed focal lens at F2.8 for 30 seconds at ISO 4000. Caught some nice details.

Thanks, Lazy8s. It looked OK. But I decided to get into photoshop today and play around with the levels to pull out more details. I like this one better:

Somewhere in between the two is probably the best image. The last one is a little overdone and unnatural. But I liked it because of all the details it highlighted. It’s amazing that all that light is up there each night. We just need better eyes to see it. That’s just a single exposure too. Pros will take like 50 shots and stack them all together to get one image that removes the noise. There is always distortion shooting through the atmosphere. Stacking images can combine the best of all into one near perfect shot. But, it can take hours of shooting and a lot more processing work. I am still having a hard enough time getting one shot looking right…

Logical said something to me in the other photo thread about “You’re telling your own story” and it made perfect sense. Since then, I’ll take tips and learn, but in the end what looks closest to what I want to see and convey is it.

I think you’re doing an amazing job, and if the photo looks best to you processed as is, it’s a winner
