A Moon-Dog imaged with the Nikon CoolPix 950

02/14/00 ~ 02:45 UT Orion is just past due south...

Image of Orion shot thru a Nikon CoolPix 950 camera, an 80 second exposure. Bush branches occupy the lower portion of the image.

10 -- 8 second images were integrated in Adobe Photoshop to make this rewulting image. The images were taken on 640x480 setting or lower image size setting with medium compression. The camera was minimally configured shooting at ISO 80. Next attempts will be with increased ISO setting to "+2" setting for "aperature Mode" which may be around ISO 200, not sure, and at a resolution of 1600x1200 with highest image quality (or lowest compression) settings. I think this camera will be great on planets, I can't wait for the weather to clear!
