Random shots from my portfoloio
« on: July 06, 2017, 03:32:21 PM »
These were taken 10 years ago during a Summer storm we had. The cloud formations were pretty incredible, and the middle-of-the-road Minolta I had at the time doesn't do these scenes justice.

Flash-forward a few months, and this was one of our first major winter storms that year. I live in an area affectionately (or otherwise) referred to as "Snowplop, New York" where these types of storms are commonplace. The first one, with the teal-and-white house, was one I rented the lower half of 20+ years ago. It had an absolutely cavernous living room (13'x24'), three bedrooms (my roommate and I took one each and used the third as a computer room/home office), a nice dining area with built-in glass curios, roomy kitchen, a sun room, and a gorgeous bathroom that the owner put black-and-white Italian tile in. I miss that house, one of the better places I lived.





These are the same image, the first is un-retouched, the second had some post-processing done to bring up the contrast and saturation to make the falling snow stand out better.

OK, last few for now (or I'll be here all day!) These are of cats we've had over the years, and both have since "crossed the Rainbow Bridge." The first two, Mau, was my Mum's cat I got for her Christmas 2000 or 2001. And the second is my "baby", Merlyn. Sadly, he passed a few months after this was taken.

As you might guess with a name like "StarGeezer", I have long had an interest in astronomy. Sadly I don't get out much these days due to health, but at one point I had started to play around with astrophotography. This one is a bit simple, but I wanted to get a close-up of the terminator (the demarcation between light and shadow) to show the details in the craters. While not perfect, it's not bad. I think it was around a 45-second exposure through a Meade ETX-80AT telescope, probably my 11mm plossl eyepiece (one of my favourites), with minimal retouching.

First the scope:



And then, the image:

Very nice Tim. I have a telescope still at my mums, I left it there when I moved out. I should bring it here really, but then I would want a better one, and it would end up costing me a fortune  :roll:

Very nice shot Geezer  :yes:

Cool looking bit of kit too  :thumbup:

How did you deal with movement caused by the earth's rotation over the 45 seconds. Does the scopes tripod compensate for that?
