My Astro Pictures
One of my earlier pictures. Sunset
over Bedok reservoir. Venus visible.
Conjuction of Moon, Jupiter (2degrees) and Venus (10 degrees)
Same Conjuction taken with 28mm, at Temasek Junior College.
The Singapore Science Centre Observatory.
The crowd was drawn by the collision of Shoemaker-Levy. The Scope is manufactured
by Pentax, 17" Refractor. Very heavy light pollution. A collection of smaller
scopes satisfy the public's curiosity in the adjacent field. Venus visible.
Sirus in Canis Major rising above Changi
Overexposure of Scorpio. Centre of
Milky way barely visible. Unguided, 40sec, f/1.8 50mm on an OM-1 ?400ASA.
Loc: Changi Beach
Sorry for the bad focusing, but it
was pitch dark. My Astro buddy, Remus and I pose before one of our scopes.
(Celestron C6 on German Equitorial Mount/sans MD)
Focal 400 ASA film (very bluish), COS3 fallout at edges evident. Otherwise
a very nice photo for showing the lines of this famous constellation.
Old Moon taken through a Celestron C80 (900mm). Fuji200ASA. Last 10%. Taken
at National Junior College Astro Meet.
Full moon. Taken with OM-1 on Fuji
200ASA 1/30sec, at the prime focus of a 13inch Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain.
