And combined image of comet and stars. I had to darken the background alot, as DSS creates residual startrailes that smear the image. It lost some color though

Moon and also M27 on September 1th

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.
