I was not successful to capture stars with my 1/2.5" 4mm CS lens sofar.
But I successfully focused last night on the moon with new raspistill "--focus" option.
Unfortunately after that clouds always at least partially covered the moon.
I was surprised that 60s exposure capture seems to be able to "see through" the clouds.
At the time I captured that 12MP frame, I was not able to see full moon.
Here is cut out unmodified part (the moon did fit into raspistill focus rectangle completely):
I forgot to mention, that "raspistill --focus -t 0" did not allow to see the moon.
I added 2s shutter time, then focusing was easy:
Code: Select all
raspistill --focus -t 0 --shutter 2000000
