It’s hardly bearable… Another clear night – and that in November! Very unusual here in Cuxhaven. Great. This time I aimed at the Pleiades. Unfortunately my processing created big “blotches” around the big stars, but that’s the way it is now. Maybe I can come up with something again. Recording data
Yesterday evening it was actually – and against all expectations – clear for a few hours. With the iOptron Skyguider, the Fuji X-T5 and the Samyang 135mm I ventured to the Veil Nebula once more. I had to reduce the Veil Nebula, due to the long focal length, to the Eastern Veil Nebula last time. […]
On Saturday and Sunday I took a few pictures with the new one. Primarily, it was to see how the existing lenses do on the high-resolution APS-C camera.
Last night it was finally clear again, at least until 11 pm. Time enough to photograph the Eastern Veil Nebula in Cygnus for 3.5 hours. The remains of an approx. 8000 year old supernova come along best in a version without stars. Although I don’t like these edits so much, it actually fits quite […]
Last Wednesday I made several attempts with the Fuji X-T20 and the Nikon 1 J4 at the Maksutov 1300mm. It still doesn’t quite want to succeed… When shooting with the Fuji camera, I partially managed to remove the Newtonian rings, but still the edge area is a bit flat, not very pronounced and too […]
I haven’t seen any snow buntings yet this early morning, but I have seen larger colonies of sandpipers on rising water.
Two pictures from last night… The moon at 47% with the Skywatcher Maksutov at 1300mm and the Nikon 1 J4. The image was composed of 3 exposures. Due to the crop factor of the J4 only half of the crescent moon was on the image. The image of Jupiter is very small despite 2600mm […]
The waxwings were unfortunately not to be seen today in the early morning, but a few other native species. The latter could also be a song thrush, I’m not so sure.
