Yesterday I made two videos from the tourist areas Döse and Duhnen in best weather conditions. Here the Döse video. The obligatory Kugelbake monument is of course included, but it is also a nice view into the Fort Kugelbake. The – otherwise at this time of year and in this weather – well-filled motorhome parking lot […]
Another video from Sahlenburg. This time on the opposite side of the Sahlenburger Strandstrasse. Too strong wind to fly higher, so I stayed at about 40m. No tourists, no beach chairs, almost no people on the way. Quite desolate, if you are used to it differently.
I came across this object by chance the other day and on the night of 22 April to 23 April I tried it once. The result is not quite as I would like it to be, but the raw data does not seem to give more than that. The recording data and astrometry evaluation.
YES! I finally got that guiding thing down. As I had planned it yesterday, I took another look at M81/M82. With the Kenko 1.5 teleconverter I wanted to get the two galaxies bigger in the picture. However, the strong wind has put a small trickle in my calculations. Of the 200 shots, there were some […]
In the night from Saturday to Sunday I pointed the telescope once more at the Leo triplet and took another 100 pictures with ISO 800 á 45 seconds. From the usable 90 images together with the usable images from April 17th I got a total exposure time of 6345 seconds. First of all I am […]
Last night I once again targeted the Leo triplet. This time with the help of a Kenko 1.5 teleconverter and with ISO 800 instead of ISO 1600. Although there are fewer shots and less light (due to the lower ISO), I like this version much better. It is planned to increase the number of shots […]
Actually I wanted to go to Spieka-Neufeld yesterday evening, but the wind was too strong to fly and the clouds became increasingly dense. Today in the early morning it looked much better. The flight maneuvers are working better and better with the small drone. Since the weather was excellent, I drove to Dorum-Neufeld to […]
Last night I tried the Leo triplet. Because I did not use guiding, the maximum exposure time was 45 seconds per picture. Probably too little for the faint galaxies. The recording data and astrometry evaluation.
A short walk around the old fishing harbour on Easter Sunday. Desolate in Corona times. Normally there would be a lot of tourists here in great weather. Besides, the usual fish market was probably planned… …hope dies last…
Originally it was only intended to take some pictures of the old Hinrich-Wilhelm-Kopf barracks, but it also offered the opportunity to film the Cuxhaven Küstenheiden nature reserve from above. The video contains a complete 360° turn of the flight site and here you can see the complete area of the nature reserve, the former military […]
