After capturing Jupiter and the moon on June 11th, I tried for a couple of stars. I seem to need to boost my ISO and turn down duration. For all photos, I’m using:
- Celestron NexStar 8SE
- 25mm Plossl
- iPhone XS Max, f/1.8 lens
- Night Cap software
For Antares, I used ISO 5000 and 1/3s for the duration. Not great, but a start:
For the second star, I have a note that says it was Polaris as a double-star with one in behind, but I’m not positive that was what I ended up imaging. ISO 8000, 1/4s for the duration.
And since my wife loved Antares twinkling and shifting, I tried a short video of it. Not the best, will definitely need some work.
But at least the moon and Jupiter are coming along.
