Posts about photography of the sky, stars, constellations, nebulae, galaxies, other sky objects and space in general: Astrophotography! Latest Blog-Articles: Photo-Categories (still under construction)
I was able to make a picture at one of the latest possible days in december 2021 in the northern hemisphere.
Two evenings without flattener fuss. The config is ok for now and i wanted to see the performance on a real picture.
October was my flattener-config-hell. M39 was shot with unfinished config, but still to nice to throw it away.
4 evenings at the beginning of september to use my new duo narrowband filter at full moon. The Elephant’s Trunk Nebula was my target.
The Moon in mineral colors. I saw this fascinating method of blue and brown colors in several astrophoto groups around the internet. I had to test this myself.
Clouds. Week after week! At the beginning of August i had to try Jupiter and Saturn at the same day. Even with bad seeing conditions.
The picture of the reflection nebula NGC 6914 (blue) was the first attempt with my newly attached flattener without any further optimization.
A photo that is not worth this awesome cluster. A picture out ouf test shots while configuring flattener distance. But i achieved a different milestone.
At CS number 16 started something completely new. I shot with a piggyback camera. This evening was a horrortrip, at least i came out with something to show.
