Re: My astrophotography 2021

I am using a medium telephoto of 85mm full frame equivalent. For my tracker, make it face south and aligned everything to the south since we’re 1 degree north. I use a wireless trigger via the Olympus app on my phone. The only variable is the wind from my living room but I’m not to sure how much ca...

2021-7-26 Keep chasing the Venus-Regulus-Mars trio's play in the evening sky.

Re: My astrophotography 2021

I am using a move shoot move tracker and an Olympus Pen as my set up No experience with MSM tracker. If you are shooting wide angle, I don't understand why trailing is present in 3-4s frames. Do you use a remote shutter release -- or a timer? I am using a medium telephoto of 85mm full frame equival...

This is an excellent shot! Where did u shoot it from, gonna put the location that in my list.

I was shooting from a few vantage points on Esplanade Dr or on the adjacent Jubilee bridge. Did a little homework on Google maps and skymap before coming down.

Re: My astrophotography 2021

Amazing photos, i will like to ask how you do your polar alignment, i followed the Google maps method but i do get trailings when i shoot however the good news is that the trailing is very consistent irregardless of exposure time from 3-4s all the way to 60s in the length which puzzles me greatly T...

Re: My astrophotography 2021

Before I left the site around 11PM, I snapped a few shots of Jupiter+Moon over MBS. Only in hindsight, I realised that I totally forgot Saturn. Checked through each photo carefully, I only found two photos with Saturn in the frame --- albeit in both cases the planet sits right on th edge. https://lh...

Re: My astrophotography 2021

When it rose to the level of MBS top deck, the skies were mostly clear. But it did not make too nice a composition. A surreal feel too strong. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/AM-JKLXY1R26hpSQ5LWFiJgJ8jgfDimxqtv5ArTFMORR4V9NbnwDJKtzFHaCJCGI041jnpgidGjl2zdYJQLz8qZ8f1qLjJfdiZ1nlXBI8HdcuG7h3uSov_GN...

Re: My astrophotography 2021

I went down to Marina Bay again. And watched how the cloudy skies turned to almost cloudless over a time frame of 2 hours or so. The moon rises before it goes behind the clouds. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/AM-JKLUApcpvrKfgUcMH-XhwBKcSosDCwTNLBPrblSv5MinEt7oWChZBcFhFQrH692HM0IBG_J7a1NMQw2zko...
