    I didn’t consider that, although it does look unusual with two moons ! Is the white one ours or one from Saturn or somewhere else ?

  • reflector, the other object is the Sun.
    With that being said, I have made a few assumptions with this image, that I took for granted being very familiar with astrophotography.
    This is for everyone who is now thinking about trying this.
    First NEVER try to look at the Sun (with binoculars or a telescope) OR take a picture of the Sun unless you have spoken with someone who knows how it is done.
    It can cause instant blindness.
    I have to use VERY Special filters that block out almost ALL the Sun’s light. Simple filters will not work! Talk to an astronomer and read books, study up on how it’s done, and learn about the many dangers.

    Thanks for that, it sounds very dangerous and a big tech challenge too !

  • Yeah, it’s fun but you have to be very exacting, and can’t be distracted. One mess up and you lose an eye.
    I take this for granted as I’ve been involved with the field for 12+ years, and forget that most people have never ventered into that arena.
