Since weeks bad weather… but yesterday I had luck 🙂 So, again M45 Pleiades (how wonderful to focus with the Bahtinov mask because of the bright stars…), this time at f/5.6. Therefore no spikes. It looks more realistic to me with the round stars and no spikes… Drizzled 2x and resampled to original resolution. Details
Many clouds this night… 50% not useable lights 🙁 but I think the result looks good. 2x drizzled, resized to original resolution Details
One more Messier object for my catalog 😉 M92, nothing spectacular, but further a good test for my new Bahtinov mask. Details
Finally M13 at 400mm focal length. The weather forecast was not really good, but it was it worth. f/5.6, ISO800, 104min total exposure time Details Drizzled: Normal:
Finally the star clusters are coming again… I’m starting with M3 at 400mm, f/5.6. Looking forward to M13 Hercules Cluster 😉 Details
Finally the Pleiades with 400mm… I took the best 126 lights of 193 subs from 2 nights. Details
280mm @ f/5.6
Again M13. This time at 280mm. First time processed with PixInsight. Details
Second composition of M13.
280mm @ f/7.1 Unfortunately only the first 20 subs (from about 80) were in focus….
