Today I integrated the existing images of the Leo Triplet from 2020 and reprocessed them. The result can be seen quite well. A total of 161 exposures with the Nikon D5200 with Kenko 1.5 converter and the Skywatcher 130/650 PDS at ISO 800 and 75 exposures without the Kenko at ISO 1600 (plus corresponding […]

Over two hours at -6°C at the Kugelbake. The quality of the image leaves much to be desired, but still. I knew that I should rather not use the Zodiak at open aperture. 10 meteors I saw, one of them directly above my head. On my pictures there are 12 meteors in total. Of course […]

Actually, it looked quite promising in the early morning. However, it did not develop as well as hoped.

Nordholz and Otterndorf
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.
Eastern Veil Nebula
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. Recording data
Sun and sunspots
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 […]
