Three Bright Planets Over Wingra Park

Three Bright Planets Over Wingra Park

More experimental handheld iPhonastrophotography: Saturn on the left, Jupiter in the middle and Venus on the right. They were too far apart to capture all of them in one photo, so I took two. Original images on the phone were almost totally black. I brought them up in post processing as much as I could, and if you can ignore the noise, this looks pretty much the way it did to the naked eye.

Even so, they would probably have looked better with the D90 on a tripod. But there's something about the iPhone that just tempts you to leave tripod and camera behind and see what you can do without them.
