IC59 & IC63 Ghost Nebula

Clear sky today 🙂 The ghosts of Cassiopeia… The star Navi (Gamma Cassiopeiae) is perfect for focusing (mag. 2.15)! Absolutely clear pattern visible. Details Drizzled 2x, reprocessed, resized to original resolution:

M31 Andromeda

This is my second M31 Andromeda attempt at 400mm fl. Now focused with the Bahtinov mask, modified DSLR and more acquired lights compared to last year (2016: 130x90s, Now: 113x120s). Only 2 nights. It was the max I could reach due to the bad wheater… really bad this year 🙁 And I tried to process […]

The result is much better than before, but the nebula is still very very faint… the longer exposure reveals more details in the faint nebula from the great wings of the dragon. Anyway, it […]

Sh2-114 Flying Dragon Nebula

OK, this one was really a challenge… first, it was very windy and a little bit cloudy. Second, I lost the guide star and therefore more than 1 hour was worthless (86 total acquired lights = 215minutes) … Actually I don’t know why… everything was fixed well. An acoustic alarm if the guide star is […]

The Wizard Nebula, for the first time with modified DSRL and drizzled 2x. The weather was not excellent… but I’m quite happy with the result. And finally the nights starts becoming longer again soon… Details
