In the night from December 25th to 26th I had the opportunity to photograph the Orion Nebula. I am not finally satisfied with the processing, but for now it is ok. Unlike the previous shots of this object, the Running Man comes out well here. Recording data

Once again a few solar images. The sunspots have changed a lot compared to the last pictures. Now the last thing I will do in the near future is to try out the ZWO 120MC camera. With its 1/3″ sensor, there should still be decent magnification in it.
This morning I once again set my sights on the sun. This time I tested the GFx and the Nikon D800 on the Maksutov 1300mm in addition to the X-T3. The D800 does not work at all. Due to the mirror impact, no reasonable image came out of it. The GFx is actually quite good, […]
Two images from this morning. This time with the Fuji X-T3 on the Skywatcher Maksutov 1300mm. It is very difficult to set the focus correctly. On the Liveview almost nothing can be seen because of the ambient brightness and in the viewfinder I miss the magnification (I have not yet found how to set it). […]
Now it finally worked out. Clear sky in the morning. The sun is very low but at least some change from the normal day. Quite a large number of sunspots are nicely visible. Taken with the D500 on the Maksutov 1300. The sharpness is not as hoped for, but perhaps one can still work on […]
Yesterday evening it was briefly possible to try out the Skywatcher Maksutov 102/1300. I had to do without the temperature compensation due to the weather situation and quickly take a few pictures before the clouds moved in front of the moon again. The image is cropped to 1:1 in width only. The sharpness is not […]
The ox tower in Imsum and actually also the old rear lighthouse we wanted to photograph yesterday. Ox tower in Imsum The old rear lighthouse we haven’t done, because it looks not so particularly attractive. Instead, a little of the container terminal in Weddewarden. Container-Terminal
A short hike with the bike in the morning. The kingfisher seems to be back again. Twice I have seen him flying close over the Döser Wettern.
Some time ago two new telescopes for astrophotography appeared on the market. Both have in common that here astrophotography is made easy by offering an all-in-one device, which is simply set up and after switching on automatically performs the setup. With the smartphone controlled objects in the sky can then be approached and the built-in […]
Yesterday in the evening we had surprisingly clear sky. With the iOptron mount, the Nikon D500 and the 300PF I tried again to shoot the Pleiades. Unfortunately, I’m still at war with post-processing. The recording data
