1/3 of the crescent moon yesterday afternoon. With passing clouds, here as a single shot.
As expected, it didn’t work quite as well with the X-T20 and the Fringer adapter. The camera is not as fast as the X-T3, but still usable. The pictures here were taken with the Nikkor 300mm f/4.0 PF.
Yesterday evening I could get my first usable result with the iOptron SkyGuider Pro mount. It is already damn hard to find the right section of the sky with LiveView without GOTO functionality. The one shown was the third attempt. This definitely requires more knowledge about the objects in the sky and also in interaction […]
Short test of the Fringer NF-FX (FR-FTX1) adapter with the X-T3 and the Nikkor 500f/5.6 PF. The adapter works excellent.

The moon is not as colorless as one might think. Here is a version of the last image taken of the (nearly) full moon with extended color saturation in the individual channels. This inspires to take more pictures of the earth’s satellite and especially to “stack” them to get more details in the pictures.
Actually, I wanted to find out if you can still see the Milky Way above the bright city, but unfortunately that did not work. When testing then so slowly on the horizon the twilight set in. Since the lighting of the Kugelbake again and again once partially failed I had the opportunity to capture this […]
A little late for the fantastic morning sky. So only briefly in the city center and made a shot with the X-T3. Shortly after that it was already over again.
On Saturday evening it finally worked out again and I could do an astro session. I wanted to photograph the Orion Nebula M42 again. This time with more environment. Last time I used the D5200 crop camera, this time I used the D800 FX. The image shown here is the 1st try. As with the […]
This morning I flew again at the wind farm Nordholz. After the weather was very bad last time, the snow was missing today, but, you can not have everything. And here’s the flightlog
