Galaxies in Leo, M 65, M 66, NGC 3628, NGC 3893 among many others in the backgroud. Astro-Professional 80mm ED f/7 with 0.8x reducer, 53x120s (1h46m), ISO 400, Nikon Z6 – definitely not enough focal length for this subjectRead More
Comet Atlas C/2019 Y4 makes a rather sad appearance in this wind-shaken exposure.Read More
Comet C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS) will maybe become a naked eye comet in April, and could probably become reasonable bright as comets to, now it is a faint smudge in the constellation Ursa Major. NikonZ6, cropped, 85mm lens, 62x15s at f/2.8, ISO 3200Read More
