| No Comments

Just playing with my camera from home... this is what you can photograph in the sky from a very light-polluted place (central Melbourne) with a standard DSLR camera and no telescope (but a slightly long exposure):

Click on the image for a larger version. Io and Europa were visible through binoculars, but were lost on the glare of Jupiter on this photo. The dark band across the sky (in the large image) is a result of reflection on the window, as the photo was taken from indoors.
