Here’s a photo I just took of the South-Western sky (from London)- Today’s day 30th November 2012 – at 02:58hrs gmt.
It shows the post-full moon (over exposed and causing a lense flare!)…and to the right of the moon, the brightest spot is planet Jupiter.
And to the lower left of the moon is Orion the Hunter…you can clearly see his belt!
It’s an average digital camera I used.. I set it in a tripod and set on manual mode (so it takes as long as it takes for an exposure..and t took a good 5 second exposure – hence the dark sky looks almost day-light…due to over exposure.. from moon light and light pollution of course!) Oh,to avoid hand-shake of camera, I also set the timer for 2 seconds..pressed the button and waited.. (3mega pix settting).
