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 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.
Day 15 with my Vixen ed80sf.
The open cluster Messier 44. An object which was several times the object at the end of a photo session of other objects to finalize the evening. I used data from 3 evenings for the final astrophoto.
The Pinwheel Galaxy – One of the famous Galaxies for Spring evenings. I had to ignore moon to practise more in astrophotography.
Bode’s and Cigar Galaxy, two well known Galaxies on the spring sky. I really like the result for only 30 minutes total exposure.
At the end of March, the famous Monkey Head Nebula was my target. I took the photos from my backyard and stumbled over a lot of problems i had to solve and fix them in PixInsight.
Two important evenings for me. I had a lot of time for exposures and collected a lot of data, but the result shows where to focus on in the next months.
