Like Father Like Son....

My astrophotography bug has rubbed off on the old man. He's down in Australia, and owns a very nice 10" Dobsonian. Anyway, recently he brought a new camera, a Canon Powershot G10. So, he was mucking around the other night and managed to take the image below.

Method used was holding the camera by hand against a 10mm eyepiece and simply shooting. It's a funky way to take an astrophoto but for beginners, it's "bloody great" to use his words.

To him I say, "Ripper shot, mate!"
