An Attempt at Astrophotography

I better not write much because I need to get to bed. I just worked late, ran, climbed, sat in the hot tub and then tried to start a new hobby…astrophotography. Here is what I managed to capture with a 15sec exposure and NO tripod. One photo is of Orion and one is of the Big Dipper. The Shot of Orion is to the West (facing the city of Tucson) where our skies are washed out from light. The shot of the Dipper is to the East (facing the mts.) in the dark sky.

    Speaking of night photography, I just saw this article which talks specifically about ways to get good night shots with a digital camera.
