Ronanvery nicem especially the second image,

John, those kind of shots are my favourite, where you can get a good horison in the image.

A couple of clear skies in Ireland and all the astrophotographers go into over drive.
There was a a spell where there were no images posted, now they're coming in by the bucket load. :)
Lets keep the ball rolling.

Thanks for the words of encouragement on my pics, yes was heading to a viewing location that night and just driving along when i saw the mist over a field an thought that would make a great shot, took about 7 images of varying exposures and settings.

John in that Moon image, what type of Lens were you using?

Here is a shot of Sunset over Achill island yesterday evening, how come in the following shot taken on friday evening the sun was much redder at sunset than yesterday, is it something due to atmospheric distortion or haze?

good question Ronan,
It looks like to me you used a faster exposure in the second shot as the foreground is fainter.

Just be carefull taking unfiltered sun pictures. :)

Ronan, I used a Canon 20D with a 70-200mm L Zoom lens at 200mm F4.

The image is a blend of different exposures, one for the background and one for the moon. This is exactly how I saw it with my eyes but of course the camera can't capture such a dynamic range.

I havent heard of anyone melting their ccd camera, :oops: yet.!
I have heard of people melting/burning focusers while
doing solar projection of the sun using a big reflector :lol:

I'm just abit paranoid when it comes to the sun.
