    The "No EQ" DSO Challenge!

    At september 4-5 I made a timelapse with my Huawei P10, 280x30 sec exposures, monochrome camera. Processed in Gif maker editor pro application. ISO 1000. Big light pollution, but comes some pieces from Milky way.

    Thanks a lot! I work also with 30 sec exposures, but because of the alt-az its not so successfull, as 5 sec or shorter. Now I want to try with thousands of 1 sec's, with my phone.

    Once I have seen here a picture, I think, that was tha Andromeda galaxy, stacked from hundreds of 1 sec frames. Can somebody help me to find this post? Thank you !

    To start this with the Orion nebula is the best way, because it's very bright. May you can use smaller ISO with 30 sec, for example 800-1000. That gives less noise and more contrast. Have a clear sky!

    There was a big help earlier, this post:

    smisy's smartphone pictures

    I have Celestron Nexstar 8 SE, alt-az mount. I take pictures and videos with my Huawei P10 smartphone with ocular projection, used 25mm plössl eyepiece. It gives 80x magnification, that's not bad for Messier objects. They can be captured only with one shot. Of course with this one shot comes not so many details, as it does with stacked images. Somehow I would say, these pictures looks like the really look through a telescope, for example a sketch.

    Hi! Welcome here! I work with my alt-az mount always with 30 seconds or less. With this mount it depend also on the position of the sky object, how long exposure you can take. Anyway if you work with raw files and you process them in Deep sky stacker or in another program, than better if you use 10-15 sec exposition. If you want only one shot, than use 30 sec! But in this case the align must be very precise. Clear sky!

    smisy's smartphone pictures

    Congrats! I use 30 sec on nebulas, 10-15 on clusters. With planets I can't do good pictures, they are too bright for my cam to take a video about them and stack the frames. With one shot this is the best, what I have:

    Thanks! Honestly I tought, if I have alt-az mount, the best way to gather light in short time, if I take a picture about that light, what is already concentrated in the eyepiece. I saw in the astroshop website, there are more types of smartphone adapter, than I tought, it's not impossible to do this with phone. The first try was surprise to me, a monochrome attempt on M42. Till this day I use my phone to take pictures and I like it Now I want to make a gallery here, than I can share my pictures with the sgl users and with my friends too.

    Very nice job, Calli! How did you stack the pictures? I think, over the sun and moon + planets everything is deep space object, or isn't?

    Really like it? It makes me happy!! I don't know, how can I get the angle, what I see in the eyepiece? This is 80x magnification with my 2000 mm focal lenght instrument, the diameter is 200 mm. 25 mm plössl eyepiece?

    The "No EQ" DSO Challenge!

    Yes, of course, but the sensitivity of my color camera is very bad. I made a gif too from 20 monochrome pictures, because of my alt-az mount its a little bit funny (the stars takes a round, but the comet is moving between them), but I want to entry with this gif into imaging challenge #17. The 20 frame was taken with my phone, and Celestron Nexstar 8 SE with 25mm plössl eyepiece, in every 10-12 minutes in the intervall 00:16-03:53 2018.08.16. Do you think, is it a good idea? Or better to entry with a single shot?

    I tried again the comet 21P Giacobini-Zinner, Celestron Nexstar 8 SE, Alt-az mount, Huawei P10 smartphone, monochrome camera, 25mm plössl eyepiece. 2018. 08.15. 23:52, Hirschegg im Kleinwalsertal, Austria. 30 sec exposition at ISO 1600.

    Moonrise in Alps

    I am from Hungary, just I live in Austria, in Kleinwalsertal. It's a beautiful valley with 5 villages. The sky objects are already at altitude 18-20 degree, when they comes up from behind the mountains, so they are ready to watch without atmospheric distortion. Here we had clear sky at Lunar eclipse, but when it came up, that was already not fully red.
