To help me with identifying mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest, I will use this post to share the images I have taken of mushrooms and other Fungi!
Messing around with my DSLR Camera and trying out some night time shots.
Using my new Celestron Advanced VX Mount I wanted to do a quick test using Backyard EOS.
Here is Saturn captured in a short video using my Canon 40d DSLR.
I picked up the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens off Amazon.com a week or so ago and last night I did some testing to see how many stars I could pull in. I played with Exposure times to see how long I could keep the shutter open before getting star streaks. I found its a fine line, but 15 seconds is good to go, while 30 seconds is just too long.
Moon was pretty bright out tonight (Full Moon), so I thought I would take a few shots.
Also took one of Saturn, which is tough without a goto or tracking mount.
