Re: My astrophotography 2021

The clear night seems well utilised with these shots!
I was also imaging last night, but only on M42.

Nice composition! A6000 looks a good cam for astrophotography.
Haha yes, i'm quite happy with it. Except the fact that image acquisition software doesn't support Sony cameras. I'm considering getting a modded nikon.

Re: Medium-wide fields 2020

Looked like both of us were doing the same thing last night!
Very nice pics from last night, especially M45 and the hyades cluster. Great work!
