First (serious attempt) shots of NEOWISE and the Milky Way

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

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! 

Frankie

      Hello everyone,
      I'm Jonny and I live in Farnborough in Hampshire, UK.
      My friend and I are taking our first baby-steps into night sky photography so I'm here for all the help I can get.
      We're just starting out so our equipment is very basic, but I'm sure the more we get into this the more we will upgrade over time.
       
      Currently our set up consists of:
      Home-made Motorised Barn Door Tracker (my friend is an engineer)
      Canon 1100D with an 18-55mm Lens
      Laptop with BackyardEOS
       
      We took everything out for it's first test-drive last week and the tracker works really well. Even on very long exposures the stars remain as points and not trails so we were really pleased with how it performed.
      I've attached what was probably our most successful picture of the evening. It' not amazing, but it's a start.
      I would really love to get some photos of the Milky Way and I'm hoping you all could suggest some settings to use, imaging techniques to try out and equipment upgrades? We're on a bit of a budget but we have photographer friends from whom we can beg and borrow equipment.
      Looking forward to chatting with you all in time.
       
      Jonny

      Finally I processed the Comet Neowise captured from Bangalore.
      Simple Set-up:
      Canon80D, Sigma 70-300 DG APOII @100mm F/4.
      ISO2000, 50x5s
      Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker
      Processed in Pixinsight.
      Lots of noise as I wanted to pull out both tails
