Newbie to the forum but I just wanted to share some shots with you that I managed to get over the weekend. Got the Milky Way and even a few of NEOWISE which was amazing to witness 😊
Milky Way - 5 x 20 seconds stacked (not tracked), 11mm, F/2.8, ISO 800
NEOWISE Landscape shot - Single exposure, 8 seconds, 16mm, F/2.8, ISO 800
NEOWISE Stack 1 - 2 x 10 seconds, 16mm, F/2.8, ISO 800
NEOWISE Stack 2 - 2 x 13 seconds, 55mm, F/5.6, ISO 1600
For a first real attempt, I'm pretty pleased with them but obviously, I have a lot more to learn!
Last week I recorded a calcium limb surge. Later that night I discovered another user in the world on astrobin (Warren Spreng) who had captured the same event in hydrogen alpha at nearly the same focal length. The was an incredibly rare occurrence.
I merged our two captures together, and this is the result. Red is the hydrogen alpha data, blue is the calcium data.
I do believe this has a "one in a billion" capture odds, and few(if any) amateurs have ever been able to share and merge this type of time-lapse data.
this little active region put on quite a show and i captured till i ran out of drive space.
160 frames x 40ms delay. (220 frames in each stack) (8 seconds per video capture) (160 captures)
