ahh my telescope requires a fair bit of setting up and other specialised kit for images like this, quite a lot of software too, not to say you couldn't do it if you wanted to, but it would be quite difficult.

But you can use the telescope with just your eyes and see some amazing things, not like the colours and detail a camera can capture but some beautiful sights none the less. The planets are very good to point at and you might be able to see the rings around Saturn, or you can look at some of the brighter nebulae, like the Orion nebula. of course the moon is always stunning though a telescope too!

Your welcome, I appreciate how difficult it is to photograph in very low light. :)

It's certainly a challenge, but well worth it when it comes out well :)

I am interested in Astro photography myself, I will be trying to take a few photos soon with my new telescope. It is only a beginner one but worth trying!

Certainly give it a go! On a good clear night it will be fairly easy to capture a few shots of stars, the Pleiades cluster or M45 is an excellent first target and easy to find in the sky too. It is worth pointing the telescope to the Orion nebula also, as its the brightest nebula in the winter sky and even short exposures can reveal the nebula. Mind if I ask what telescope you have?

Thank you for your kind advise. My new telescope is a Jessops TA1100-102 Reflecting Telescope. I used it last night and was really impressed with it considering it being such a low end budget telescope with no tracking!(I got it for Christmas) I viewed the moon which was really very special and gave a better image than the 60mm refractor I was using before(before it fell apart!). Then I looked at Jupiter and saw the faintly the cloud formation and 3 of its moon.

If it is clear tonight I am going to try and view other things in the night sky such as Mars , Saturn and the Andromeda Galaxy. I have a Canon DSLR and was thinking about connecting it up to the telescope, however another way I want to try first is Afocal photography as it is cheaper! know that I can only use short exposures and may try to take many shorter exposed photos and image stack or try video and use a program like RegiStax.

Ahh that should be a good start for a few images. If you wish to connect the canon to it, it would be best to run it with no Barlow lens. I have seen some interesting Afocal astro images before, from an iphone no less!

If you end up with a good few still images then deep sky stacker is a great little program to use, i use it for all my images at least :)

but anyway, good luck with the sky, and be warned, its easy to get hooked on astro!
