Here are three photos I took 12-24-2003 using my Olympus C-4000. The manual shutter allows me to go up to 16 seconds for exposure.

I used my Meade LXD-55 ten inch and connected the camera to the scope with an adaptor I bought from Scopetronix. Thus, the camera rested on a 12 MM lens.

I took this picture of Saturn on November 30, 2003 at 9:00 PM from my St. Paul backyard with my Meade LXD 55 ten inch scope using a 17 MM eyepiece and a 3x barlow lens, giving me a magnification of approximately 179X.

The camera was an Olympus C-4000 digital camera that was attached to the eyepiece via a T-ring and adaptor. The exposure was for 1/25 of a second.

I took these two pictures of Jupiter on December 2, 2003 at 4:00 AM from my St. Paul backyard with my Meade LXD 55 ten inch scope using a 17 MM eyepiece and a 3x barlow lens, giving me a magnification of approximately 179X. The camera was an Olympus C-4000 digital camera that was attached to the eyepiece via a T-ring and adaptor. The exposure was for the first 1/25 of a second, the second shot was 1/20 of a second, using a yellow filter.
