Re: M42 Orion & Running Man Nebulae - Redcat51 1st Light

I can see details in highlight regions are well kept/rendered. I can see sharp and round stars from corner to corner. I can sense a lot of hard work behind a single picture. Congrats! On the M42 field itself. I still like this type of works more than those with many and many hours of total exposure ...

Re: My astrophotography 2021

2020-Jan-21 Rain stopped in the late evening and viola! What a joy seeing the conjunction of Moon, Mars and Uranus -- nothing beat the view through my pair of binocular. Anyway, let me take a few photos and hope for some nice composite image after heavy editing. Turned out not bad. https://lh3.googl...

Re: My astrophotography 2021

2021-Jan-20/21 The night of Jan-19 saw overcast all the time, contrary to what the forecast told me. Clear skies finally came upon Singapore in the Jan-20 dusk, also to my surprise since the forecast said differently. Shot a few targets before clouds rolled in. Biggest lesson learnt today is that th...

wow...nice
Haven't got time to fine-tune the data processing procedure. But this data quality is probably not worth it. Plan to revisit this target only when I can shoot from a truly dark site and with a focal reducer (or better still, with something like a Hyperstar -- hah hah ).

Re: My astrophotography 2021

First time doing astrophotography at Kranji. Relatively better for western skies than other obs sites in Singapore. This session was actually meant for examining the site and testing the equipment. I made many mistakes, though. I foremost I forgot to bring the lens adapter for the Nikon lens. Unfort...

Re: My astrophotography 2021

Clear skies finally came upon the prayer and I enjoyed a few hours on a rooftop, busy testing new gears. Oh the ever-increasing light pollution in the town! Nevertheless, I tried to shoot a number of objects. 1st target was the double cluster. Stars are less affected by the brightened skies than tho...

My astrophotography 2021

Beginning of 2021 came lasting rainy and cloudy days. My first try -- just to check if the stars are still there -- hah! https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3d3MMVJjsCYDKga7EC6GGFI2RL7tO0soOUKCbDdKWtv_apkemBQyQ6nUx7ToL-NX3GuwUt2vZfgm2pkrhJglWVsYUp2bB9ls3g8-oqtRBKcVFF56wDSOKSboa7M6_dKDFEYoBKHqB...
