Photo Gallery: ISS Long Exposures
The only other kind of astrophotography I can do with my cameras is long exposures and combined with watching the International Space Station flying over at night, it makes fascinating photos. This involves finding out when the station is coming with websites like Heavens Above and then using the addon-firmware CHDK to persuade the camera to take exposures longer than 15 seconds. The Powershot S2 and S5 I used in 2012 and 2013 had quite a bit of sensor glow when I pushed them to 60 or even 120 seconds, but the SX1 has proven to be much better in that respect. I haven’t taken a lot of those photos over the last couple of years, but I’ve collected them all in the three galleries linked below. The single Google+ Gallery should have all the images collected together and you can also go to the blog category also linked below for the annotated versions.

Gallery: Moon 2015
After watching the skies for planes, let's do some amateur astrophotography - the Moon 2015 album has all the Moon shots from last year, which turned out to be a lot. We often had clear skies and the Powershot SX1 proved to be quite good even though the combination of a 20x zoom and 10 megapixels still only allows a full moon size of about 550-600 pixels in diameter. But it's a distinct improvement over the S5 and with some careful stacking of several images using Registax it's possible to get a surprising amount of detail. This G+ gallery is mostly made up out of JPEG files, but you can also go to my website and gallery to see the uncompressed PNG files, although the difference is actually not that noticeable.
