Re: Southern DSO Astrophotography

WOW! This is APOD caliber! This is the best image I have seen which decently depicts the 3D structure of the giant cosmo complex.

Congrats!

Re: My astrophotography 2023

Milkyway Arch, Finally! My last attempt was in last year in Tg Leman. Was not happy with that result. Now more than happy with this. Didn't expect that it would be possible to get such a clean, high quality MW arch from a place not too far from Sg. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/AMWts8DRxpPY3L...

Re: My astrophotography 2023

Mar 29, 2023 Finally, after a few futile attempts (cross-border trips to watch and shoot MK Way), I finally nailed it! I kept playing with nightscape photography from 1AM till 3:30AM. So much fun! So there is a good collection of raw images back in my hand. Took some time this morning to process a f...

Re: My astrophotography 2023

For deep-sky objects, I wasted lots of time. Ended up with only 1hour of NGC4565 data and merely 19min NGC5139. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/AMWts8DXVb9oOXptpZWUB7eeZUzihSQ0V_QDnXGdEIRRn_mdZsSZo-4-FhvNU_aCZfDRSd8B9NftvKDfkiDfvYeShjwNvWnco-EawwFIddXFk61X-yCIqTCCrOFrEI5bEsJE4uKFL2nLXfqSULpz9Wv...

Re: My astrophotography 2023

Another night spend in the middle of nowhere. The weather was disappointing. The persistent clouds before 2AM and the incredible fog thereafter. The surreal sight of the fog tiny droplets everywhere under the torch light in the dark location. Anyway a good opportunity to practice nightscape photogra...

Re: My astrophotography 2023

Finally processed the NGC3372 subs. It was only 11.5 minutes of total exposure time. The conditions were far from ideal, the moon about to rise (sky brightened noticeably), and the southern sky is plagued by the strongest light pollution among all directions. Anyway, after the stacking and simple pr...

Re: My astrophotography 2023

Went up to Jemaluang again. My APO and EQ mount rig had been shelved for so long. And for the first time, they performed under a dark sky. However, the mount is now malfunctioning -- the USB port is dead and it cannot talk to the computer -- means no guiding, no easy PA. Other than that, it works sm...
