Long explanation as to why this post is what it is.
So for those of you who aren’t amateur astronomers, there has been a comet in the sky for the past few days. I think it’s called Neowise. Mom showed it to me and on Tuesday I took the camera out and she brought out the telescope.
I don’t know if you can tell, but some stars are showing in this facing North at sunset picture.
I got this picture by setting the shutter speed to really slow and setting the camera on the ground. That is Mom and B.
Then the comet became visible and I decide to skip a bunch of really bad pictures that I thought at time of taking were duds and show you the first decent ish picture I got of the comet. After celebrating I went and got this set up that I actually got a picture of the next day.
So this is the first picture I got with the new set up. I discovered that my angle was wrong but I caught a plane or something, so I left it in.
So these two little pictures should be looked at full size, but I didn’t want to just have them one after the other as they are so similar, but the one on the right is slightly better. then I went to bed because it was late.
On Wednesday I went out and was hoping to get a picture that showed where the comet was in the sky. It’s pretty visible in the right picture, but can you find it in the left?
Finally I got these to pictures and went to bed because it was getting late. Oh and in case you were wondering how I got the pictures of the stars I set the ISO way up, set the settings to P, and set the exposure comp to +5.
