Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. The comet Neowise has been putting on a show in the night skies this month….and it is easy to come away with some fun photos..no telescope necessary. Princeton University Professor and astrophotographer Bob Vanderbei…says what you need is a camera and a tripod…
“The tripod has to be nice and sturdy and stable. And then you take a ten second exposure…and I took several. I took more than a hundred I think over the course of twenty minutes. And then figure out which one’s the best. That’s one of the tricks of the trade.”
You can check out a video version of our interview …complete with some of Bob’s spectacular images….on our Web site. And head to Vanderbei.princeton.edu/images for more. Bob by the way, is co author of the National Geographic book Sizing Up the Universe.
