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.

Reprocessing is worth it. I like the new result.
Some of my early collected light from 2021. Only 1h collected light is just not enough. Reprocessed in 2023. I like the stars much more, the rest is a question of masking and curves.
