Yesterday there were great cloud formations in the blue sky. In the Küstenheiden National Reserve they were especially good on the horizon. While the D2x made a timelapse, I had enough time to take some pictures. First with the Nikon D80, the Nikkor 16-85 and the Hoya 720nm filter some infrared images. Later I took […]
It was far too late to remember that Mein Schiff 3 had docked in Cuxhaven to bring ashore the crew members who had been stuck on the cruise ship for months due to the Corona pandemic. At least this morning we went to the harbour area for some quick shots. But strong wind prevented us […]
Today I took some infrared pictures with the modified Nikon D80. About 4 more weeks, then it will be worth it with the foliage on the trees. Both images were taken with the D80, Nikkor 16-85 and a Hoya 720nm infrared filter. Editing was done in Photoshop and Lightroom on black and white.
Duhnen on April 26, 2020. Spooky emptiness on the beach. Just a couple of strollers are on their way. If one thinks about, what’s going on here in this weather at this time of year…
Yesterday I made two videos from the tourist areas Döse and Duhnen in best weather conditions. Here the Döse video. The obligatory Kugelbake monument is of course included, but it is also a nice view into the Fort Kugelbake. The – otherwise at this time of year and in this weather – well-filled motorhome parking lot […]
Another video from Sahlenburg. This time on the opposite side of the Sahlenburger Strandstrasse. Too strong wind to fly higher, so I stayed at about 40m. No tourists, no beach chairs, almost no people on the way. Quite desolate, if you are used to it differently.
I came across this object by chance the other day and on the night of 22 April to 23 April I tried it once. The result is not quite as I would like it to be, but the raw data does not seem to give more than that. The recording data and astrometry evaluation.
YES! I finally got that guiding thing down. As I had planned it yesterday, I took another look at M81/M82. With the Kenko 1.5 teleconverter I wanted to get the two galaxies bigger in the picture. However, the strong wind has put a small trickle in my calculations. Of the 200 shots, there were some […]
In the night from Saturday to Sunday I pointed the telescope once more at the Leo triplet and took another 100 pictures with ISO 800 á 45 seconds. From the usable 90 images together with the usable images from April 17th I got a total exposure time of 6345 seconds. First of all I am […]
Last night I once again targeted the Leo triplet. This time with the help of a Kenko 1.5 teleconverter and with ISO 800 instead of ISO 1600. Although there are fewer shots and less light (due to the lower ISO), I like this version much better. It is planned to increase the number of shots […]
