CCD vs Film? Lots of time vs no patience? Alright, this is your place to discuss all the astrophotography what's and what's not. You can discuss about techniques, accessories, cameras, whatever....just make sure you also post some nice photos here too!

My first attempt at digital astrophotography. Three 15 second exposures stacked with MaxIm Dl. asa 50 f2.8 with a 28mm lens.

Hi,
What camera do you use?? I think you had to stop down to at least f4 to have less aberration at the edge.

Anyway, nice attempt... try higher ISO next time and take more frame. You should be able to get better result.

Have a nice day.

I used an Olympus D595 5 megapixel point and shoot. I have always used film in the past.
Thank you for your suggestions. I will try them.
