This morning's Orion Nebulae Images

I have been learning how to use my new Smartphone (Oppo A5 2020). I worked out how to disengage the auto focus and how to vary the ISO and exposure times, from looking at Utube.

The following images had settings of: ISO 3000 for 16 secs, ISO of 2000 for 10 secs and ISO of 1600 for 7 secs.

The extra image is M1 (The Crab Nebulae) with an ISO of 2000 for 10 secs.

The images have not been processed in any way.

Equipment: 80mm F6 Triplett, with 12mm plossl EP on an EQ5 mount.

Bob,

Nice images with the mobile.

Good to know I wasn't the only one up early this morning !

I observed Pleadies at around 4.30 am.

The ability of a mobile to capture images has only just started
to gain interest, and in my opinion, they achieve great instant results.

I have been messing about with mine for about a year.

Yours are certainly a good indication of what can be achieved.

Looking forward to more !

Paul.

Thanks Paul,

I also took an image of the Pleiades. (IO 2000, 10 secs.)

I suspect that the 12mm plossl that I am using is not as good as I would like. I shall start looking for an arrangement where I can use some of my good EPs. No rush though, because I still have much to learn just using my existing equipment.
