It is no secret that I love taking photographs of the sky, but taking my Canon 7D with me is not always possible. The camera you have on you most often is actually the best camera you have. And with the Nokia Lumia 920 I’m in good company…
Last weekend I had my first play with taking photographs of our closest star through fellow astronomer Martin Whipp’s telescope *. After I’d taken a load of photographs I thought I’d just start off a video and see what happens.
Coincidentally an aeroplane ‘photobombed‘ the shot by flying between me and the Sun. Here it is slowed down to one quarter speed. Pretty cool, right?
* Never point any kind of optical equipment at the sun unless you have a special filter! It’s very dangerous and could damage your camera, or worse – your eyes.
