A little galaxy, far far away in a lonely universe

NGC2403 in Camelopardalis, image with SharpStar 76EDPH @ F4,4 Nikon D750 ISO 400 17×120″ SGP, PHD2, APP & PSCC (Click for a larger image) only 35 minutes. I imaged this galaxy to find out as a test how large it was (or how tiny!!)

The stars are a bit fuzzy as my automatic focusing did not work, I discovered in the morning why: it was jammed with the rotation know against the dovetail. Obviously, I tried everything apart from fysically checking, I re-installed about everything 😉 No Flats used so a dust bunny is visible here and there.

Mars near the Plejades

A nice sight, for sure also in binoculars!

Mars, near the Plejades on March 3th 2021. 35×120″ or 70 minutes ISO400, Nikon D750 and SharpStar 76EDPH @ F4,4 with Optolong UV.IR filter in the reducer. No flats some dust bunnies are visible. It seems that Mars is elongated, for sure it travelled a bit during the 70 minute capture.
