I’ve posted this before but this gives me strength when I have none
IVE WATCHED THIS A MILLION TIMES AND ITS NEVER NOT FUNNY
Through my lens vs through the professionals
I’m stilling getting to grips with my new set-up, the main issue is tracking.
I honestly cannot get any more than 20 seconds exposures before trailing occurs so its hard to bring out the quality in my pictures.
So to give you a better understanding of what the night sky objects actually looked like I have borrowed a few images from some incredible astrophotographers to give a better view.
Image 1&2: M2, It’s a globular cluster which looks stunning through the telescope, very easy to notice the fuzzy patch of light.
Images 2&4: M34, I was really struggling with imaging so I decided to just go through all the messier objects that are visible from the northern hemisphere when I enjoyed the look of this one.
Images 5&6: M27, The dumbbell nebula appears as a large ghostly pair of brackets. You can just make out its sides.
Images 7&8: Saturn, I only just managed to capture a short video of the gas giant before it dipped below the horizon. I’m looking to purchase a 5x Barlow lens in order to get the best views possible!
I strongly recommend checking out:
They are two of my favourite astrophotography websites!
The joy of finding these object personally is so worth it though :) nice work
