The Moon at sunset in my town (Monte Hermoso, Argentina). Two of my best photos today (13 photos total). It's the best my camera allows me (it's a few years old).

Telescope: Meade ETX-80AT F: 400mm D: 80mm f/5.0, eyepiece 26mm. And other numbers that I don't know what they mean.
Camera: Kodak C-180 (year 2009), -2 brightness compensation.

Well today the day is cloudy and there is at least 50km / h of wind in my town Monte Hermoso [https://www.smn.gob.ar/pronostico/?loc=4443], but I can still see the eclipse.
~15:00UTC



15:15UTC


15:30UTC


15:45UTC


Remember not to look directly at the Sun. In my case I use an arc welding mask. I know they are not the best photos, but this is the best I can get.?

15:15UTC





~16:20UTC





Very cloudy day.



16:24UTC




~16:40UTC, The Sun reappears. And the temperature increases by ~5°C.


I have not been able to get very good photos but something is something and I could enjoy it despite being heavily cloudy.

So i decided for the first time to try and take some photos of the moon..
Time for some ultra amateurish stuff.:ROFLMAO:
This is the moon taken with my shitty smartphone camera and a pair of 10x50 binos.
The camera just can't capture enough detail.. through the optcis you can see far far better, clearer and way more detail.

Here is a timelapse made with my even shittier smartphone videocamera.


This is Jupiter and it's 4 moons, i never thought i could see something like this with only 10x50 but it's possible.
Through the optics they are far far better looking and the satelites are tiny very very shiny dots but my shitty camera just could not capture enough light and detail i guess and i also can't focus it well.. that's why they are so thick.

@predattak wow I didn't know you can see jupiter's moons with bino. Which brand bino is that?
I recently got a 10x50 too, but its been completely cloudy for the last 3 weeks so didn't get the chance to use it.

It's an older pair i have around the house, i have no idea what brand because there is no brand on them other than the magnification BUT i'm almost sure it works with all of them cheap and expensive. Turns out Jupiter is ultra large ( i know .. who would have thought )
You just need a clear night and make sure you don't look at Jupiter when it's low on the horizon (i for one could not see it's moons then). I had the best view of his moons when Jupiter was high up in the sky.

Your photos are good, they are not bad. The Moon is seen with good details (i.e. the craters) and the timelapse is even better.
Regarding the photo of Jupiter, I tell you that I was never able to take a photo, my camera was very small. I currently have a new one but haven't tried it. Anyway you took a good shot because I know how difficult it is to take a picture of Jupiter and what is more difficult is to see its moons.
I also imagine the difficulty of using binoculars that do not have a tripod.

By the way, for timelapse with phone, nothing beats the shutter app. It allows you to shoot in full pro mode at the desired intervals etc. Costs like 2 bucks on the app store

Well, here my contribution from tonight: The Pleiades. They are not seen in all their glory because I have no way of adapting the camera to the telescope but in any case it is the first time I have managed to capture them on camera.

I used a Kodak AZ361 with 10s exposure, with 800ISO.

Look much better than they look here. They are almost invisible at the border of the city.

Well, took advantage of the clear skies a while ago and took some photos. Samsung S23 Ultra on a tripod mount. Gonna try to do the same today, if I manage to stay outside long enough without freezing. As far as I can tell, the dedicated astrophoto mode is a bit underwhelming, despite its ability to not have star trails at all. Buuut, then again, its output is in raw format, which can be edited more easily.
Most of the photos have been edited for clarity with the built-in tools for the Android photo app, but are otherwise 30sec exposures at 1600 ISO
