    Great shot Pierre!

    I am very impressed with the images of Comet Neowise that several of you have been getting. I have been thwarted the times I have run out to try to get an image. Even on supposed "clear" nights, there has been enough low clouds that I have not yet seen it.

    Instead, I took the M6II and 500 mm plus TCs and aimed it at Jupiter and Saturn to see what I could capture and got the second two. The first was actually from earlier in the year with less humidity in the sky so I actually got some bands on Jupiter.

    This was actually my first attempt the other night, 2x TC, 1000 mm, 0.5 sec, f/8, ISO 12,800. I tried to dial it in from there, but actually liked this over exposure.

    Not winning any awards, but I am still impressed what a birding set up was able to accomplish.

    Thanks for viewing--Brant

    Wow!!! Blown away that you can see the bands and rings without a telescope. These are cool.


    I was able to capture Neowise, but nothing spectacular. When I finally spotted it (barely visible just after 10PM), I wasn't in a a position to include an interesting foreground.

    I found focusing incredibly difficult. For astro images I normally zoom in to 10x and adjust focus until the stars are tack sharp, but because the sky around Neowise wasn't completely dark, and nothing was visible in the viewfinder I was basically guessing.

    In hindsight I would have shot wider. I took this with my 70-200mm thinking that a compressed image would be better, but it still would have been impressive and easier to shoot with less magnification.

    Messing around with my new EF M adapter. I have to say that I'm fairly impressed. Using the LCD is little tricky at the equivalent of 640mm, but not as bad as I was fearing. I am definitely enjoying the added "reach". Noise isn't too bad either. This one was shot at ISO 1600.
