Fun with Astrophotography

Well, now that I have a decent enough digital camera to try and do some experiments with, I went and picked up a tripod from ShortCircuitCity.  It's not a bad little tripod, just small enough and light enough to meet my personal requirements without going overboard.  For $35 it's nice, and should do the trick.

So tonight I'll take it out in back, far enough away from the sodium lamps and try some shots.  See how well a 30 second exposure of Cygnus and Lyra will look.  *chuckle*  And in the morning, try to get a full shot of Orion.

If they're good enough, I'll post.

I got my tripod for $30 at Wally World. Nice little tripod; shame I haven't had a chance to use it yet. And I can't do much astrophotography with the city lights around.
