Re: Rho Ophiuchi Cloud Complex

Thanks. I see your iso is set at 400, probably because of light pollution in Singapore. In this case it’s even more impressive that you can take a shot like this!!!

Re: Rho Ophiuchi Cloud Complex

nice picture. I have always been mesmerized by Rho Ophiuchi for some reasons. :mryellow:
Curious to know why you are taking only 15 sec exposure when you have mounted on a star adventurer? Is that because you are taking it at 135mm?

Re: Widefield Sagitta Constellation with M27 and M71

Nice shots! I can really see the difference before and after stacking!!!

I have never really been very successful with DSS. I use a mac computer and it somehow doesn't work well even when you have an emulator. Don't know of any other software that does stacking.

Nice setup, Hong Joo! I guess one of the best way to spend your time in isolation is to do obbing! And it's free too. No mask or sanitiser needed! :) Hope you are safe there and clear skies too.
Thanks. I’m doing well so far :)

Re: My Astrophotography Journey

I'm thankful for this hobby that allows me to appreciate how vast and majestic this universe is. Tells me that there is perhaps a Creator out there! My friends are often surprised by the beauty when I share it with them; amazed, they often asked how I would set up. With the coronavirus going on here...

Re: Milky Way and M83 with iPhone

Wow that's pretty cool... developing an app that could take long exposure with iPhone. I wonder what the noise level of the phone is? :)
You might want to consider taking it in a darker place and have a tripod to hold down your camera. The MW looks pretty legit!

Re: My Astrophotography Journey

OK ok... i didn't give up... Here's my latest effort to try to correct the color gradient. I'm also documenting my learning and sharing with folks who may face the same situation; also in the future in case I forget too :) The earlier photo was stitched using Adobe Lightroom which didn't turn out as...

Re: My Astrophotography Journey

This is the last of the astro shot taken for the recent trip. It's one that proof the most challenging for me. For some reason I did a lousy job with the stitch job. You could see the different color tones. The way the program blended the photos just didn't come out well. Any ideas of how to do this...
