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.
Clear Skies 6, 7 and a little bit of the 5th. This photo is the result of 5 hours exposure time collected on 3 evenings. A 4th evening was senseless due to some Sahara dust in Europe.
The Triangulum Galaxy – A picture stacked out of exposures from a single evening. Some stumbling was mandatory …
On the third evening i focused on the Andromeda Galaxy and I used PixInsight the 1st time in postprocessing.
7 Days after my first evening with my Vixen ed80sf, on February the 20th 2021, i had another clear sky. Again, i had to test and try a lot.
