In the night from August 12 to 13, that is at the peak of the Perseids, we were lucky to have clear skies. With temperatures of at least 17°C conditions prevailed that made it possible to spend the night outside. Unfortunately we had also full moon exactly in this night, which strongly impaired the brightness […]
Last night I went out again to make another attempt with images of the Perseids. This time it was much more successful concerning the quantity. However, there was no Perseids as bright as last night. The shots were then merged into a single image using PS. This time I used the Fuji GFx with the […]
Letzte Nacht habe ich mich noch einmal an den Perseiden versucht. Zunächst bin ich vor Mitternacht nach Altenbruch gefahren. Wiederum gelangte nur eine Perseide auf den Sensor. Sehr hell, hatte ich diese bereits während des Fotografierens gesehen. Danach bin ich – da es zusätzlich noch eine Polarlichtvorhersage gab – noch zur Alten Liebe gefahren. […]
In the night from Saturday to Sunday I had set up my Nikon D500 with the Samyang 135mm and photographed the radiant of the Perseids between 11 pm and about 4 am. Unfortunately, I was only able to capture one Perseid on the sensor in the entire 5 hours. OK, the peak is around August […]

The former general cargo freighter and today’s museum ship Cap San Diego has moored in Cuxhaven at the Seebäderbrücke (former RoRo terminal).
Yesterday evening it finally worked out with strong NLCs. As a location was again the Grimmershörn bay chosen. The NLCs were however NNE, so the Kugelbake could be taken up only as edge phenomenon. Detailview with Mittelplate At the beginning the NLCs were more compact and more east oriented. 1s video (25 frames) taken […]
Again unsuccessfully looked for NLCs. Too cloudy to have even a hint of a chance. Nevertheless, two pictures with the cloud cover from Grimmershörn Bay. Shortly after the picture was taken, the AIDAprima left Hamburg for the North Sea metropolis and Norway tour.
