These were taken with an Orion 8XT Dobsonian telescope, 2x barlow lense, an Orion adjustable camera adapter, Nikon t-adapter and a Nikon D40.
T rings can be found here.
Basic adapter here.
Adjustable adapter here.
Various barlows here.

Of course, you don't have to use a barlow as I found out later, since adapters will actually screw into the inside of the universal adapter. So you can in essence mix and match to what you want to take a picture of.

The t rings are made for all kinds of various cameras.

BTW, I'm totally jealous. In a good way. You've inspired me to make it a goal to do the same thing as you. Big Grin

Probably won't right now, but that would be a very cool idea and project for myself in the future. Even though I know it's already been done, it would be cool to do it for myself. I would like to get pictures of the various planets as well. Saturn especially. I'm glad it inspired you and a goal Smile

I'm guessing it's dark because there's not much sunlight hitting it in its phase. Kick-ass nonetheless. Thumbsup

Start planning ...

Wind's in the east, a mist coming in
Like something is brewing and about to begin
Can't put my finger on what lies in store
but I feel what's to happen has happened before...

RE: My very first attempts at astrophotography
Wow, I am glad I stumbled onto this post. I am just about to get started in Astrophotography myself, but I only got myself a Canon 1100D. I am hoping on getting a telescope after I move further south, here in Korea, in April. I am really excited about it, and whenever I see someone's photo of a planet, even a fuzzy one, I get excited because it makes me feel so great. I think it is the closest thing to being spiritual for myself; trying to understand the universe!

Keep stacking the Jupiter photos and keep them coming! Drooling
