I never did go out and see it with a telescope, wish I did but I guess I'll wait for the next bright(ish) comet.

C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy)

Opticron Imagic TGA WP 10x50
1 points

This was the second session with this comet. A combination of binos for visual and a bit of widefield photography to capture this comet (DSLR + iOptron Skytracker V2). Started by locating the comet with my binos and rigged the iOptron and DSLR after that. Wanted to get both the comet and the Pleiades in frame. This is my, so far, sixth observed comet.

The only time I have seen Mercury. I was able to view it as I was leaving work and take a few pictures. It was very close to Venus. I hope to see it through a telescope sometime.

Got my new scope too late to see our galactic neighbor.

Pleiades, Subaru, Seven Sisters

Celestron AstroMaster 114EQ
100 points

M45 was my first astrophotography object, piggybacked a Nikon D3200 with a 200mm lens to get this shot: M45 (Not the greatest shot I've ever taken)

Magnificent cluster for anyone with a small telescope(or large), how many stars can you count?

Albireo

Celestron AstroMaster 114EQ
1 points

This single point of light hides a surprising 2 stars. A beautiful binary system.

Triangulum / Pinwheel Galaxy

Mead LX200 (Cabrillo Observatory)
30 points

People in astrophotography go galaxy crazy. It must be something about the scale of them. They defy logic and imagination so of course, they must be photographed. I agree.

The following photo was taken using Spock, the LX200 at Cabrillo University. The resulting image was then processed for color and sharpness.

Hercules Globular Cluster

Celestron AstroMaster 114EQ
30 points

Giant glob of stars! Stars here and there and everywhere! Wasn't the greatest night to view the sky but I got to see the a great cluster.

Uranus

Nikon D3200
50 points

Got to see this little point of blue light during the 2014 October Lunar Eclipse. Uranus Wasn't able to see it through the telescope since I was using it to watch the eclipse. Waiting to see it again when we swing around the sun once again later this year.
