Doing astrophotography, i make photos of millions of stars, but the most important one is always missing. This was the reason to purchase a herschelprism. After 1,5 months of clouds i finally wanted to test it for the first time.
Two evenings of full moon. Since there was no other opportunity, i used the time to photograph the Horsehead Nebula with the L-Extreme.
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.
