  1. Clear sky forecast later might be able to add an hour more
  2. loving how NGC 6888 is just sitting there amongst the HA. i have thought about the 135mm . would love a filter wheel for my lens'es some how
  3. First full from the holiday home in Anglesey. I was blessed with a good few hours of clear dark sky's and was able to capture 50x3 min subs ISO 1000 Equipment : Tripod : Benro Mach3 TMA47AXL Aluminium Tripod Mount : SW star adventure Camera : Sony A7Rii Lens : Sony 70-200mm F4 oss G
  4. cheers Chris, yeah its pretty strange i have a feeling its a bit of sag on the bayonet of the sony. It's a problem thats been there from the start. you can however buy a cnc machined new one for about twenty bucks. its now on order so time will tell if its that.
  5. a little bit frustrating given how nice it was yesterday, i managed to get a time lapse at Alwen dam last night. Nice report though and hopefully a few more hours of clear sky of the weekend
  6. Im back to having a tracker for the coming season and managed a night out last night to test the gear. The plan is for this to accompany me on some trips to dark skys and do some wide field mosaic images of nebula regions. im using a Sonya7rii and a sony 70-200mm F4 OSS G image details : 70MM ISO 1000 F4.5 x121 seconds im actually quite surprised at how sharp this lens is, apart from the top left which is very soft every other corner is very good. hopefully over the next few nights i can get my mosaic done of this area around Deneb & Sadr. image sequence as follows :: bottom left bottom right middle top left top right Cheers Danny
  7. i agree with Alan, orientation does'nt matter as long as it's framed nicely and which you have done. a fine WF image
  8. Awesome Andy please do come and introduce yourself, so far the forecast is looking good. There is a hands on practical advice afterwards so please do bring any equipment you need. I will have a few pieces of equipment that will be used for public use. Also Celestron I believe are attending.
  9. Hi every one my self and Vanguard will be giving a talk along side the Cambrian photography event at Lly Brenig this coming Saturday. I will be talking about how i take my landscape astro images. If you fancy listening to me waffle on then you can book here. During the day there are stalls for camera & lenses to see so please do pop by and say hello.

      Howd it go?

  16. I got a heads up just before i finished work and didn't really want to head out until i saw some image's coming in from Berlin just before 22:30. I decided to go and try and capture a shot ive had planned for a while but due east there was some murky cloud shrouding some of the display so i headed to a place i know well.

  17. i cant take all the credit for this spot, a good friend of mine who's local pointed me to it. theres a few spots around the lake for some other things i want to try later in the year.
  18. By the time August comes around it's too high and making a panoramic image of it is a real pita. This image was about 15 images. The last time I tried in August it took 51 images to fit.
  19. Thank you dude There was a big hill behind us, blocking most of the low moon
  20. Hi Dave hope this helps. I've calculated you max exposure time for shooting with your kit. Lovely image by the way I think that's it for us northern folk now. Next session 2nd August for me
  21. last astro shot for a while now. The conditions where epic and while i was waiting for the moon to set fully, i was stood in front of this tree and decided to try something new. A 200 shot stack and a 4 pane pano. thats 50 x 12" images for each pane at ISO 6400 f2.8 20mm. This is part of the Cygnus constellation home to the North America Nebula which you can see as a pink blotch towards the top of the image. This Nebula is approx 100 light years across and 1800 light years away. I love this section of the milky way as its so dense with stars when your at a dark sky location it glows wonderfully in the sky .
