D800 plus Astro 700 mm: astronomic pictures!

For the second night a bright light is visible from my bedroom window. What is it? I just mounted my Astro 700 mm telescope and set my D800 on 1/40, f/1.4 ISO 3200 and … it is an astronomic alignment!

Please, appreciate the two black bands on the planet and the four moons Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto! I can imagine what Galileo felt that night around 400 years ago.

I tried to take the picture with the Canon 450D, no way. I am glad I can use the D800 for astronomy, I did not have this possibility before. Thanks pals for gifting me this cheap telescope when I finished university in the last millennium.

Here below how Galileo wrote about the four moons, click to enlarge.

      Ah, it was manual focusing on the ocular of the telescope with a hand hold camera, I have nice, focused hands, indeed 😀

    PS

    The light from Jupiter takes 32 minutes to reach my camera CCD. So, the picture I took yesterday was a picture of the past! First time I took a picture of so passed past 😀
