Sky Watch

So yesterday, I tried my hands on some night sky pictures. The lowest shutter speed on my cam is 4 seconds, which is not really enough for low light landscape shooting. Although, some pictures were kinda cool. The moon has just started showing up on the west sky. Really fascinated with the super beauty they portrait. I should be studying, my mid term exams are scheduled for next Wednesday. I just finished a maths assignment and thought I would distract myself with something. It really works. Anyway, all that jazz apart. Here are the pictures.

There is star right above the moon. I was in awe and was speechless for quite a while. I hope you enjoyed the post.



  1. That star right above the moon could be the ramadan star?

  2. Very cool!
    I long to have a camera that can do the celestial wonders justice. :)

  3. Cool capture!

    I was thinking to take some pics on the same night but didn't do it somehow :D

  4. know..i usually always sky-watch before going to kinda brings me close to my loved ones...because someway down this really messed up time zone thing...we all watch the same moon and stars..:)))

  5. I just visited your blog and I like it....keep it up!
    I like this post particularly because I myself watch the night sky a lot and I captured the moon in a different phase(posted in my blog)

  8. Thanks Mie :) I think so too. Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it very much!


  9. Wow, these are beautiful..

    I was in Mirissa with a few friends and I was told to look up at the sky, and boy did I have my breath taken away.

    You need to get your hands on a good lens man, you've got skills!

    Oh, and distractions FTW!

  10. Black rose :D
    Thank you so much. Means a great deal to hear that form you. Yes indeed, the sky takes center stage these days. Bloody amazing!

    Sadly, I can't. My camera can't remove it's lens. It has a good 676mm zoom though(26 X).

    Hell yeah! Distractions are needed some times!
    Thank you once again.


  11. Well well, doesn't get any better than distractions from an FCS project huh? ;)

    Good shots man. Love 'em. :)

  12. Chavie :D
    Thanks Machan :D I know man! Distractions for the win!
