    it was my first time fucking around with a telescope so i really didn't know too much about what i was doing when attaching my camera to it. i gotta learn what settings to use for taking pictures like this ;)
    plus we have to learn how to use the motors for the telescope so that it will track an object for LONG exposures


    i used an EOS lens adapter and my Canon 10D SLR :)

    this is what i attached my camera to:

    SVP 8EQ with TrueTrack™ dual axis drive
    1000mm focal length (f/5)

    and here is Jupiter.
    the jupiter pics are ass because they are on ISO1600 which is WAY too damn high of an ISO. we need to get a teleconverter to get closer with my camera.

    jupiter is the really big bright object and above it are 4 of it's moons. the two dark rings on jupiter did not come out in the shots (we'll do better next time ;) )

    to the naked eye jupiter looks like a bright star, but through the telescope you can see that there are moons around it

    Instead of investing so much in photographic equipment, you should buy yourself some photography lessons :o

    taking normal pictures is easy, i know how to do that.

    this is not normal, it's a telescope as a lens :eek3:

    it was my first time testing this out, so i'll do ALOT better the next time we go out and we learn to use the motors on the telescope so i can do better exposures.

    PLUS, we did this in his backyard where there is nothing but crappy city lights. we need to go to a better location next time :)
