Astronomical Snapshots

iridium 62

Saturn

This is a snapshot made with my Kodak M753 digital camera attached to the 13" telescope. The focus isn't very good because the Kodak doesn't have manual focus, and it gets confused looking into the telescope!

Comet Holmes

This is a photo of Comet Holmes taken by Frank Williams by simply holding his digital camera up to the telescope eyepiece! The bright spot near the nucleus is a background star in Perseus.
