Something Different


Rich has been very interested in astronomy lately, and while I was on Christmas break, I went out and tried The Beast on a few planets.  I was amazed to find that I could see the bands on Jupiter, along with several moons!  This is a highly cropped image taken with The Beast and a 2X teleconverter.  I used my remote cable release to minimize motion.  I could see the bands pretty clearly in the Live View screen, but not as well on the computer screen, so I enhanced them a little with the Detail Extractor tool in Color Efex Pro.  Next Rich wants to show me the Andromeda Galaxy…cool!! :)
