John McConnell Astrophotography

Previous -(5)- Next


This corona image was taken on the 20th November 2003 using a Olympus OM-1 ISO400 f1.8 for 15-20 seconds. In hindsight, I could have used a shorter exposure though I still got good detail in the central corona. The triangle of bright stars in the bottom left of the image is part of the Great Square of Pegasus. The far left star of the triangle is Scheat at Mag2.4. To the right of the image is the constellation fo Cygnus.

Aurora taken with the same equipment looking towards Cygnus on 18th November 2003.



Andromeda Galaxy 50mm f1.8 lens driven for five minutes on 1600ASA film on 8th December 1998.



Lunar eclipse on 21 January 2000, taken at the Prime Focus of a Meade ETX90. E100S film. Click here for a mosaic showing the various stages of the eclipse.



 Wednesday 11th December 2002

Attached is an image I took of the moon myself using an ETX COMBI-ADAPTOR ( combined camera and eyepiece holder), and a 20mm eyepeice. Exposure was in the order of a quarter second onto 200ASA film.

The two big craters at the top are (left) Hercules, and (right) Atlas, with Posidonius below them and to the left. The Palus Somnii is on the terminator near the bottom.
