I live in the NE of Scotland and have recently been bit by the Astrophotography bug! I bought a Star tracker a few months back, but only started using it 3 weeks ago (due to crap weather). The images posted are what I've managed to get with my Fujit XT2 and my various lenses. Only just started stacking in DeepSkyStacker and trying to stretch / edit in Photoshop. I've recently gotten the 45 day trial on Pixinsight so will be looking to try out editing in that.
Looking forward to learning a bunch from everyone!
Been a while since I've done any astronomy but was in Iceland this week and even though the weather was generally not that great did get a couple of nights when the Aurora was pretty good for short spells. Have a bunch of photos to process but my focus was off for some of them, unfortunately, and I'm thinking I probably should have had the lens stopped down a step or two rather than wide open...
I was concentrating on watching and enjoying the show rather than photographing it and the battery in my remote failed so some of them have some camera shake but good to get some images.
This one: Nikon D40x, 50mm lens, f/1.8, 13s, ISO-100. Just a bit of curves in PS.
Like I say, it's been a while and this is the first time I've imaged the aurora, so comments very welcome.
