Digicam astro-photography
The images on these links were taken from George Washington's former Estate at Mt. Vernon, Virginia with a Nikon Coolpix 950 camera hand-held or attached to an Astro-Physics 155mm F/9 StarFire EDT Refractor, unless otherwise noted.

The purpose of this site...
is to show the types of images that can be obtained using a consumer digital camera. I was surprised at how easy it is to obtain lunar and planetary images with such a simple setup. This method is an enjoyable way to gain experience for more serious high resolution planetary and deep sky imaging.
Thanks for your interest,
Arpad Kovacsy
