The Sky At Night... [Dec. 30th, 2006|10:11 pm]
The Love Bug

If the truth be known, I'm bloody disappointed with the pictures I took, so I'm only going to post one. Most of the pictures were phenomenally noisy, and the general quality was seriously bad. Add to that that since my last post, most of the sky was cloud-covered, and you end up with Not Good Stuff™.

With regards to the noise, can you fix the ISO setting at 100 or 200 (or possibly 400)?
The camera's probably automatically ramping up the ISO to something like 800 or higher (which tend to be very noisy on non-SLR cameras).

The ISO was fixed at 200 - the camera doesn't have a lower setting on manual. The CCD in the camera is supposed to be the dogs in terms of high-ISO and low-noise.
