Yesterday evening there were auroras to marvel at over the Tidal Elbe. Marveling because – for me – it was the first time I could see the lights directly. Despite the bright moon, it was quite impressive. There was also very little boat traffic, which made the whole thing even better. The wind of […]
Over 3 nights since November 7th I took 836 exposures of 15s each with the Dwarf II of the Pleiades. Here are the results. Not quite as great, but at least they are recognizable. I’m still hoping for the higher resolution of the Dwarf II, which should be available in the next few weeks. […]
…at least there is something to see. Unfortunately, unfortunately, unfortunately the sky was completely cloudy here in the night from November 4 to 5 and the gray mass did not allow any attempt to take photos of the substorm. Too bad, though. Then yesterday evening another aurora forecast. But not with the same intensity as […]
Yesterday evening at 22:14 the maximum of the partial lunar eclipse was to be observed. My picture from 22:18, when finally the clouds had some gaps, was taken freehand with the X-T5 and the 50-140mm. The weather was simply too bad for a timelapse series, so I didn’t even try.
It was just an attempt… The focal length for the Messier 74 object is too small. In addition, the resolution of the Dwarf camera is quite poor. But, at least, the galaxy is visible. Shooting Data
Clear skies for a short time yesterday evening. With the Dwarf II, this is no problem, since long setup times are eliminated. At first I had thought that I could try my hand at M74, but there was still the house in the way at this time of year. So I set my sights on […]
In the night from Tuesday to Wednesday it was wonderfully clear. For about 20 minutes a cloud field passed through, so that I could use only 30 of the originally taken 40 pictures. Nevertheless, I am actually quite satisfied. The focal length could be larger, ok. Shooting Data
A shot from this morning at Karl Olfers Square. Haus Handwerk from 1928-1930 is one of the many architectural monuments in the city of Cuxhaven. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite work out the way I thought it would. I must repeat that probably once again with the Nodal adapter. Also, I was quite late, so […]
