Sony a330 SLR astro-photography test. I stole my wifes camera and mounted it with T-adapter on the Meade LXD-75 SN-10″. The SLR is already outperforming my Meade DSI II CCD camera. Here are a few test shots (PhotoShop auto-levels enhanced). Ring nebula – one of the pics has a line going through the shot: I believe it to be a firefly due to turbulence in the line. A lot of them were out that night. Secondly are test shots of my favorite Star, Vega. Last, M13. More to come as I get more experience with this camera.
