Learning never exhausts the mind

By

Tonight I had the first clear night since I have been able to walk, so didn't waste any time volunteering my father to help carry the equipment to the top of the garden!

I started off by trying to use my new Canon 350d SLR camera in prime focus and had some very good results and some poor results. Started off with a young Moon and then moved to Jupiter, which was impressive - I was only expecting a dot in the image, but after processing some frames you can see the classical stripes. Also tried M51 (Whirlpool Galaxy), but I had trouble finding it, and the stars I did capture were out of focus. Then did some wide field photography and captured a couple of satellites. All in all, a successful night.
