After years of longing, I have finally joined the ranks of DSLR owners. Rita granted my wish this past week by buying me a Canon Digital Rebel XSi. This camera is so much better than our previous camera that I have been drooling on it.Here is a sample picture:
It's not the best picture ever, but it was a simple point-and-click using the standard equipment. An upgraded lens and flash, plus some post-processing, would make it even better.
One of my goals is to use the camera for astrophotography. My first attempt was to get a picture of Comet Lulin. On Friday night Todd, Kenna, and I drove to rural Syracuse to do some stargazing. We were able to get a good view of the comet in my telescope, but none of my pictures turned out well at all. Hopefully with practice I will get better.
