Title: Spring is looking around the corner ...
Post by: klaus on March 02, 2019, 11:32:59 PM

Spring is Galaxy Season :)

Messier 66 in Leo, 48 frames each 15 sec exposure,  stacked with Infinity software.
SQM reading 19,41. temperature 7C, seeing 5/10 (not one of the best nights)

Please note:
I do not do astrophotography in the actual sense, but I make video observations, which I document and edit the pictures for this purpose.
I am observing from my backyard outskirts of Hamburg in a suburban (Bortle 5, MPSAS 19.8) zone. It is fascinating to watch on the monitor how an image of a DSO that is millions of light years away gradually emerges. Most of the time I take 30 light frames of 30 seconds maximum.
It's like operating an 18" telescope in a rural location. The Atik Infinity allows me to follow the observation reports in The Night Sky Observers Guide.

Greetings


Klaus
