Another time lapse with the Mantona head. This time early in the morning at the Kugelbake in Cuxhaven Döse. The little mount does its job pretty well with the Fuji camera. But no comparison to the AllView panorama head. This one interrupts the movement while the photo is triggered. This makes it possible to take […]
Timelapse from the port of Cuxhaven. Primarily thought to try the Mantona Turnaround 360 timelapse head.
In the night of August 12th to 13th I took some shots of the Andromeda galaxy again. Due to wrong polar alignment the telescope drifted far out of my view later, so that from the originally planned 350 images only 122 usable ones remained. The sharpness also still leaves to be desired. The recording data.
On August 10th I was at the Nordholz wind farm to photograph the Milky Way. The wind was a little bit too strong, so that the rotor blades are unfortunately not to be seen on the photos. Here both pictures were taken with the Fuji X-T20 and the Fujinon 10-24/f4. The first picture is composed […]
Yesterday afternoon we went to Greetsiel. At first it was only meant for the twin mills, but since it is just around the corner, the Pilsum lighthouse was also on the list. In the afternoon in the west of the lighthouse the light was still much too bright, but here I could fly with the […]
After some time I was able to use the Mavic Mini in the early morning today. The weather was not that good, but it was enough for a few shots in the southern part of Cuxhaven.
Actually, I wanted to take one last set of pictures of the comet C/2020 F3 Neowise. There the clouds on the one hand and the brightness of the comet on the other hand made a line through the calculation. It has meanwhile only a magnitude of 5 and that is quite weak. Well, a short […]
A clear night is predicted, so I wanted take another set of pictures of comet C/2020 F3 Neowise. This time I was on the way from 2130h to 0330h and set up my cameras at three different locations. It started at the Little Prussian lighthouse in Wremen. Here were some photographers on site. First the […]
Last night I took another set of pictures of the comet. This time from Nordholz with a few windmills in the foreground. Here’s a close-up shot using the Nikkor 300mm, stackt from 20 images. With the Fuji I also created a short timelapse.
… clear skies. Since at least one week I wait to be able to photograph the comet C/2020 Neowise. Last night it finally worked out. However, there were no NLCs last night, but maybe this possibility will open up again next week. Here is a stack of 16 images at 200mm with the Nikon D850 […]
