In the night of April 16-17, I set up my iOptron mount in the nearby coastal heaths to photograph the Virgo galaxy cluster. However, 45 minutes of exposure time is not nearly enough to get enough detail. I took the picture with the Fuji GFX and the Mamiya 150mm f/4.

Virgo Cluster

Recording data.


An astrometry image from the day before when I tried to shoot the cluster out of town. The angle doesn’t quite match, but here the evaluation of the galaxies is shown as well. I don’t get that with the current image from the Astrometry server.


For orientation here is the astrometry evaluation of the actual image.
