Telescope Photos

The reality of taking pictures of the sky at night with the help of a telescope is amongst the most amazing innovations to have taken place. Cameras have today being mounted on a large number of telescopes, but what we'd like to know is there a possibility of clicking pictures of objects in spite of possessing a normal telescope.

It makes no difference if your camera happens to be a normal one or of a digital make, as it really does not affect the possibility of click photographs via the telescope's eyepiece.

All that is required of you is to hold the telescope properly and get a clear focus of the matter that you want a photograph of, put the camera in the same direction and shoot it, well you will have that photograph.

This opportunity of being able to click photographs at will with the help of your own telescope could be something you will cherish for a long time - and the experience just gets better incase you happen to have strong lens telescope which allows you to magnify all planets, star & nebulae that are out there.

It doesn't matter if you happen to be an amateur astronomer or an amateur photographer, if you can manage to get the right position and stability then the photographs shall come out fabulously.

When you are attempting to photograph via a telescope for the 1st time then clicking pictures of the Constellations or the Milky Way stars might be a good idea. Ensure that the camera is set at option "B" while the lens at the minimum number of F.

This allows for the lens to fully open its shutter thus letting in the highest amount of sunrays to penetrate. Largely twenty-eight to fifty millimeter lenses show the F option of 1.7 - 2.8 being their quickest setting.

Once the spot or area that is to be clicked has been decided upon, camera focus should be on the particular star where the appearance is the sharpest & smallest.

This will allow you to take good pictures for continuously thirty seconds incase you have applied a 50mm lens thereafter the stars shall begin a trail that happens because of the Earth's progressive rotation. Another important thing to be aware of is that the camera should move even the slightest as that shall leave your pictures with a blur on being produced.

We recommend a quick film such as Fuji 800/1600, Konica 3200 too is recommended. Konica 3200 is pretty quick but is little bit grainy. Having a digital camera means that the highest resolution should be applied, this will allow the camera to click the best photographs possible.

Incase you are thinking that you would require various fancy devices so as to take superb pictures from the telescope, then that's not the case. It more of a case of being able to do the small steps more properly and you will be assured of desired results. So what are waiting for grab the camera & the telescope and start exploring the sky.
