A latecomer of the last starry nights in January. The beautiful open star cluster Messier 37. The full frame at 1800mm focal length looks very nice to me here.
The first photo with a full-frame sensor on my VIXEN VC200L. The Double Cluster Caldwell 14.
For capturing astrophotos, it doesn’t always have to be a cooled astro camera. There are reasons to use a standard DSLR or DSLM camera. However, in the case of astrophotography, an astro modification is recommended.
In the year 1054, visible even during the day as a supernova, the remnant known as the Crab Nebula is now expanding visibly.
On the second consecutive clear night, the star cluster M34 was my companion until my main object of the week rose high enough above the horizon.
After months without clear skies, finally some fresh starry material. My first image with the #Vixen #VISAC #VC200L in a long time.
Astrophoto with legacy lens. One year after collecting the data the processing finally worked. This material was one of the hardest to process, yet.
My first try of the nearest Star Cluster to earth, the Hyades, with my legacy lens Olympus OM MC 135mm.
The PixInsight plugin BlurXTerminator V2 was a spontaneous purchase for me. The result seriously surprised me.
List of the northern hemisphere part of the Caldwell Catalogue. The focus here are the information I use to plan my astrophotography projects.
