    allright, i got some pics of Mars tonight using my buddies telescope.

    all the pics look the same, so all you get is 1 pic with the scope :)

    you can see the polar ice cap on the top of it pretty clearly :)

    :cool:


    repost of the pic i took with my 28-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS



    and the pic using my buddies scope :big grin:


    i used an EOS lens adapter and my Canon 10D SLR :)
    and i used a laptop to control the camera's settings (using the digital cable to USB port) , and used 10Dremote from breezesys

    this is what i attached my camera to:

    finally... was waiting...

    was expecting a bigger zoom tho :squint: you should have gone to mt hamilton and hooked it up to their telescope :big grin:

    funniest part of the mars thing was my friend (not the brightest kid... bought a 10d because a bunch of my other friends were (has a long way to develop his style but thinks that the camera will make the cameraman) called me up tonight and was all "joe, do you know if the mars thing is supposed to just be a dot?"

    i was half asleep so i was like "uh... yeah man, what were you expecting?"

    and he goes "i don't know, i thought it'd be the size of the moon"

    needless to say i woke my ass up laughing.... what makes it even better was that he had been talking about going out to the desert to shoot it (i had thought through a telescope too until he called)
