A beautiful eclips! Very cold but really clear weather. A silent morning…
I have to say I expected a lot of pics on social media. But the number of pictures was an avalanche. Mostly good quality pics I have to say but still, I can’t understand why some individuals have such an irritating need to expose themselves with dozens of pics on the net. Anyway… here are some of mine 🙂
The sky was not very transparent, and also during the weeknd the public lighting remains on all night. So conditions could be better.
I pictured M27, the famous Dumbell nebula, first with the Esprit120/Nikon D750. 19 shots of 300 seconds on ISO400. Second target later during the night was Luna. I made a mozaic of 8 seperate pictures, composed from 60 seconds of AVI. Also here the Esprit was used ( I forgot to take the C11 out for cooling) with the ASI 174MM in infrared and a 2x Barlow.
I was planning to create a terminator mozaic, unfortunately the size of the AVI’s was soo large, I lost some of these due to file copy mismanagement! Oops. So these three pictures emerged (click on them for full-size)
All Lunar images with out Barlow – so native 2700mm focal lenght.
I imaged Jupiter also – way more down to the horizon – with a 2x Barlow, effective focal length 5400mm
