The Moon

Here is a single photo of the moon, that’s all, nothing more, nothing less…

It’s a bit more than that actually, it was a quick test of taking a photo (my first astrophoto with my new Canon 1100D nonetheless!), putting it straight onto my iPad with the Camera Connection Kit and then blogging it from my iPad, no desktop/laptop involved at all!

If everything goes to plan then I’ll be able to go out a bit later on tonight when it’s a bit darker and get some much nicer photos, seeing as as this one, sadly, is nothing special. I’ll be able set the tripod up and get some nice long exposures to liven things up a bit!

Astrophotos From Tenerife

In the Summer I went on a trip to the Las Palmas Observatory in Tenerife with my course to collect some data. I couldn’t pass up the chance to get some astrophotography in so I borrowed a canon 1000D and got to it! The full set are on my Flickr page (link at the top!). Enjoy!
