asgs109644yWow, you must be something to have clicked a photo like that 👌
That's incredible! Astronomy and astrophotography is something I've been interested in too, though I've only really got as far as photographing star trails.
Wow, that's amazing! Seriously I'm amazed.
LuxARTS16984yAmazing and wonderful.
wowotek59744yDo you remember how long the exposure setting was ? @xonya
git-gud14604yheck yeah. that's what i'm trying to do. when we have clear skies again, that is...
@wowotek It is a sum of 19 shots, each one exposed for 15 seconds at 1600 ISO, made with a reflex and a 15cm newtonian telescope.
@git-gud Clear skies are important but image processing can do miracles. I taken pictures from the garden of a small town and I usually had to remove an orange gradient from my photos to achieve nice results like this. Here it's how: http://astrosurf.com/buil/iris/...
Oh wow, this is awesome. <3
I love astrophotography. I was surprised at how many stars I could capture even in a very light polluted big city with my OnePlus 5T and 30secs of exposure.
Sadly, as someone who does not have a car and lives in a big city, crisp shots like these will probably remain a dream for a while.
Scratchy764yThis is an amazing photo!
Just starting out in astrophotography as well. Other than the above replies do, do you have any other tips or tricks?
@Scratchy Thanks. Suggestions can vary based on subject you would like to photograph and your budget. You can have a look at amateur photos on https://www.astrobin.com for having an idea of which instrumentation is needed and which software people use.
Another amazing activity is making a video of the ISS when it transits over the Sun or the Moon. You can use this site for calculating the next transits: https://www.calsky.com/
Amateur astronomy, even if I'm no longer doing astrophotography. This is an old photo, I made this in 2010 (it's the Andromeda galaxy, an easy subject).
