Thanks for the EXIF luigis . It's an amazing image of jupiter for sure especially to show the moons so well ! BTW is this 2 different EXIFS ? The top part shows Date Time = 2010-10-19 23:16:03 and the bottom part shows Date Time Original = 2010-10-19 19:49:49 . Thats over 3 hrs difference in time . Do this figures go together or is one for Jupiter and one for the Moon ?? Thanks for the input !

I wish more ppl would post their DSO images like yours instead of just moon after moon after moon . Kinda getting boring quick looking at just moons . How about some more galaxies or nebulaes or even better how bout some star clusters . I know you can do it Badger , you've proved it ! Ok everyone else heres your challenge cause you don't need a telescope ... right ?? Just do what Badger has been doing .

I'm hoping that others will contribute to this thread to encourage those that have only basic camera equipment.

The only rule for posting an image here is that it must have been taken without the use of a telescope.

Hey Sorarse , just out of curiosity . If a tracking device can be used like a barndoor for example would PiggyBack on a telescope be legal here ? Like when i use my camera and lens fixed top my telescope and not throught it couldn't i just claim that as a tracking device :D ??

Hmmm, "without the use of a telescope", that's the ONLY rule posted in this thread, ie, lens is a std camera lens not a telescope as lens

My take:
bad: "without the use of a telescope" = I read this as "image thru a telescope"
good: everything else (using Camera I take it, not other imaging device?): hand held, tripod, multiple exposures using DSS,tripod + tracker

Need Sorarse to define if "Camera mounted onto a telescope but image only from camera" is in bounds or outta bounds, that is same as "tripod + sturdy ballhead"

That combination has more focal length than my telescope, and probably a wider aperture as well (my scope is 750mm, f/9.9)!!
