im always baffled how clean those shots are; if you keep in mind hubble travels at 4,66 miles/s
And im having a hard time capturing a clean close up shot
I think because of the huge distances involved, a close-up shot would still be some way off, therefore negating the effect of speed considerably... like when you see an aircraft at 30,000 feet and it seems to be moving quite slowly. It is actuallyb traveling around 350 -400 miles an hour, or thereabouts.
Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
BTW, syd, nice post... very humbling yet exciting.
