About Daniel's Astronomy

This is a place where I store processed and unprocessed data from my telescopes/cameras.


For my main setup, I have a Canon T6/1300D, a 300mm lens, and a 55mm lens.
I have a cheap tripod and a battery grip for extra long life (3 backup batteries).
I run Magic Lantern on this camera, which is essential for the built-in intervalometer.

For my second setup, I have a cheap $15 Goodwill telescope and an old 2007 Sony camera jerryrigged to it.
I rarely use that that setup, but when I do, it's typically for moon pictures, and even Saturn once. Sadly,
The Sony camera is fully manual, so it's impossible to image anythng other than Saturn. I rarely take it out.

Sadly, this is not hackable, with no firmware to study.

My first telescope was an old 1970s Meade reflector. It was a pain to set up, but I sure did enjoy clear nights with it.
At that time, I lived in a Bortle 4-5 town. I now live in a very light polluted city (Bortle 7-8),
but I often visit the nearby mountains to enjoy Bortle 2-3.


Raw Data

Since my server is currently running on a 60gb SSD, I do not host much many data image files here.
If you would like some for reprocessing, feel free to email me.
Edit: I've recently gotten a 256gb SSD, I will eventually start to upload some things.


You are free to use and remix these images if you give me credit.
The best way to do that is with the exact text "Daniel Cook Astronomy".
Search engines will be able to pick this up and link to my website.
