Sometimes you just have to be lucky… I originally wanted to photograph a moon halo last night when the plane crossed the path. Just a lucky shot.

Deep Sky photography using the Skywatcher EQM-35 with SynScan Goto
On September 22 I had photographed twice the 97% moon shortly after rising. The Fuji X-T3 with the Sigma 150-600 and 1.4 teleconverter was used for the picture above. A stack of several images did nothing this time. The single image is sharper and more detailed in my opinion. The second picture I took with […]
2 clear nights within a few days, you can hardly stand it 🙂 Last night I photographed the IC 1318 – Gamma-Cygni nebula. After the exposures with the D500 were finished I mounted the Fuji GFx with the Mamiya 210mm and made another 50 exposures with it, while the D500 made the dark-, bias- and […]
Last night I tried again on the North America/Pelican Nebula. The nebula is already quite large, so here with the Samyang 135mm on the Nikon D500. Funnily enough, without having planned it, I had photographed exactly the same nebula exactly 5 years ago. Progress is visible… The recording data. The bright star on the right […]
Three pictures from last week. I had set up my tripod with the Nikon D500 and the Sigma 150-600 and TC 1.4 and tried to photograph Jupiter and Saturn. OK, the result is not a masterpiece, but you can see something in the crop 🙂 On the right side two moons are just indicated. On […]
In the night from August 3rd to 4th I photographed the Andromeda Galaxy. The mount used this time was the iOptron iPolar on the Berlebach tripod with the Nikon D500 and the 300mm PF lens. The recording data.
Another picture from last Saturday (actually already again Sunday) from the wind park Nordholz. Here just the moon showed up at the horizon and thus also the Milky Way was increasingly outshone by the light. 15 minutes later it was hardly to be seen.
A picture from last Saturday from Nordholz. The milky way is well visible, but still not good enough. Keep practicing… Foreground is a 60s exposure without tracker and the Milky Way then 60s at ISO 800 with the iOptron. After that the problems start, the blending. Not perfect, but still… Of course it works also […]
Before and after the images of the Pinwheel galaxy I took some more images of the current crescent moon. First 50 shots from 22 o’clock. The later shot at midnight I made with 3 different shutter speeds and calculated a HDR after the stacking. The following image was created from a total of 180 shots […]
A little more than two years ago I had already photographed the Pinwheel galaxy. Last night I photographed it again with the Nikkor 300mm f/4 PF and the Fuji X-T3 on the iOptron mount. Again, the positioning was not easy and finally the galaxy itself landed in the lower right quarter of the sensor. This […]
