How NOT to take astronomical pictures…

…like, by holding the camera up to the binocular eyepiece…

That blue thing in the first picture is a reflection, not anything neat. Obviously the first two are of the moon – they were the best of about twenty shots. The third one is Jupiter – not in focus at all, but not bad for not having a tripod!

One thought on “How NOT to take astronomical pictures…

  1. I think these turned out really well. Much better than I've been able to take with my fancy-schmancy camera. I can't figure out how to take photos of the night sky with it. Tripod would probably help.
