2 clear nights within a few days, you can hardly stand it 🙂 Last night I photographed the IC 1318 – Gamma-Cygni nebula. After the exposures with the D500 were finished I mounted the Fuji GFx with the Mamiya 210mm and made another 50 exposures with it, while the D500 made the dark-, bias- and […]
Last night I tried again on the North America/Pelican Nebula. The nebula is already quite large, so here with the Samyang 135mm on the Nikon D500. Funnily enough, without having planned it, I had photographed exactly the same nebula exactly 5 years ago. Progress is visible… The recording data. The bright star on the right […]
Between 150€ and 250€ costs a normal traffic sign incl. post and mounting. Doesn’t sound sooo much, but if you push it to the extreme, then it adds up quickly. The shown here is by no means an isolated case and certainly someone comes along and babbles some reason, but does not change the fact […]
During a bike ride on Monday I had several opportunities to do some flying, despite strong winds. Three times from the backcountry, so to speak…
Three pictures from last week. I had set up my tripod with the Nikon D500 and the Sigma 150-600 and TC 1.4 and tried to photograph Jupiter and Saturn. OK, the result is not a masterpiece, but you can see something in the crop 🙂 On the right side two moons are just indicated. On […]
Three pictures from last night. The Kaiser Pharmacy I always wanted to photograph, this has finally worked out. Here and also at Ritzebüttel Castle there are lamps in use that make a reasonable white balance more or less impossible. A black/white conversion is advantageous there.
So, here we go. The 108 page photo book about the northern Cuxland. As a supplement to the photo guide Photography in Cuxland comes here as a picture book with a little bit of writing. The quality is good, even if a few shots could have been printed a little brighter. The book binding itself […]
First test of the iFootage Shark Slider Nano. Here a timelapse at the ferry port with the Fuji X-T20 and the 18-55mm at 18mm focal length. The slider runs excellent. Very quiet and does exactly what has been programmed. Operation is simple and fast. All settings are made quickly thanks to the built-in interface. […]
In the night from August 3rd to 4th I photographed the Andromeda Galaxy. The mount used this time was the iOptron iPolar on the Berlebach tripod with the Nikon D500 and the 300mm PF lens. The recording data.
