Or use a telescope mount for your camera to get good shots :naughty:

Only problem with that is a lot of us live in cities with a lot of light pollution. It is very difficult for me to get clean shots of the moon.

The only mount that would really make a difference would be like a astro tracker. Otherwise you get star trails which SUCK! You can take a bunch of short exposures (10-20 sec) and use a stacking program to get really cool pics.

ahh yea thats true didnt think of that... damn city folks!! Have you ever looked into this stuff though? Its pretty cool.

heres what that stacking program can do

Yea, I have a buddy that shoots through a telescope that has the electonic tracker. I think he paid around $3k for it and the tripod was another $400. Crazy.

another issue we would run into at this time of the year would be clear skies. It will be something to think about come summer. Are the stacking programs expensive?

Tools of the trade makes for an interesting idea. It gives people a chance to see what everyone does. Night sky photos sounds like fun and look cool, but hard to do without high dollar equipment. Cloud formations might be a better option. My $.02
