Plugging in my trusty MB-D10 battery pack into my D300s for some extra power, I set up for a timelapse of the moon setting which I’d seen the day before. There’s always something striking about seeing the moon in daytime blue and white. The stills are from the day before when I’d noticed (whilst constructing the bee garden), and the timelapse itself. The timelapse is made up of pics taken every 30 seconds.
I’m finally using the Meade LS 8 with a bit of confidence and having a play with the camera t-adaptor. Yes, I was expecting home made pics to rival the Hubble, and no I didn’t achieve that (yet) but not a bad first effort before the clouds came rolling in.
More practice needed. The fullness of the moon really needs a shorter exposure. Auto mode just turns it into a big round light.
