Well, what a night it was last night! Sadly it only cleared properly around 21:30 and I hadn't sorted any of my equipment out .... but I did manage a few shots with my new camera purchase.
I ditched the Nikon D40 in favour of a Canon EOS M, which, as far as I can gather, is the mirror-less version of the 650D and what a camera it is.
I quickly set up and took a few shots at different exposure settings and this was my best on the left.
Bearing in mind this was my first time out with this camera for astrophotography, I think the result is pretty good.
Moon, Jupiter, Hyades, Orion and Orion Nebula looking east at approx. 22:00.
Canon EOS M ISO1600 18mm f/4 5sec.
