I signed up for an Astrophotography course led by two professors from the University of Toronto. Tonight was my second class and my first attempt at shooting the night sky with the knowledge of what I was actually shooting. Here is one of the more successful shots.

Jupiter with Pleiades

Jupiter with Pleiades

You’ll need to click on the image in order to see more detail. The brightest object in the photo is the planet Jupiter. Pretty cool, huh? The bright cluster of stars to the lower right that looks a little like the dipper is Pleiades. I believe I may be getting the Astrophotography bug. I can’t wait to see what else I can get.
