the long exposures…

I didn’t want to sleep yesterday. I thought of taking a few pictures. I set up three cameras with different film sensitivities, pointed the lenses at the Polaris and opened the shutters. The opening image is Fomapan 400 exposed for 20 minutes. The second Fujifilm 200 image exposed for 30 minutes and the last image is the least sensitive Acros 100 II film,exposed for a full hour and a half. But since my vision is getting worse, I couldn’t focusing well. I would slap myself😠📷🌟.On the other hand, analog startrails are not very common. Two Perseids were also captured on the initial image – an experienced observer will spot them right away

a bit of physics…

In the course of cleaning up after storms, I noticed a large number of twig ends lying on the ground. I wondered: How much force could overcome the modulus of elasticity of these twigs? So I re-uploaded the captured video to the Camtasia editor and tried to find some hail where I could follow the trajectory until impact. I found out that the hail covered a path of about 3 m in about 0.03 sec. Which is a speed of 100 m/s, or 359.9 km/h. So I could put the speed and weight of one hailstone 21g (I hid in the freezer as a keepsake) into the formula for calculating kinetic energy. The approximate energy of the hail just before impact was therefore 105J. The kinetic energy of a 9mm bullet ranges from 100-500J. I understood why even the ends of the branches didn’t stand a chance.

when the time comes…

Sometimes we say it happened at the right time, or it happened at the wrong times, or we don’t have time. Sometimes we make time. And we’ll give it some time. Although time is just a math tool. The universe does not need time to exist. When it is, it will be. This is exactly how the universe works. I hope I didn’t stole too much of your time with this thought.

one more light…

inspired by Linkin Park – One more light

One more Light – Linkin Park

Should've stayed, were there signs, I ignored?
Can I help you, not to hurt, anymore?
We saw brilliance, when the world, was asleep
There are things that we can have, but can't keep
If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone's time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We're quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do
The reminders pull the floor from your feet
In the kitchen, one more chair than you need oh
And you're angry, and you should be, it's not fair
Just 'cause you can't see it, doesn't mean it, isn't there
If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone's time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We're quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone's time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We're quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do
Well I do

2 in 1

In the night sky, I still couldn’t aim the lens properly at the Ciffreo 108P area. Two nights and hundreds of pictures. I had no idea I still had her in the picture. Even with comet C / 2019 L3 ATLAS. But that Comet Ciffreo is really tiny. I took pictures for two nights and sat on the maps for two days. But they are both in one picture. Yupeeee

Empty spaces …

Yesterday, while trying to photograph the comet 29P Schwassmann-Wachmann 1, I managed to photograph even incredibly huge spaces where nothing is visible at all. Maybe in those places the light bends due to the gravity of other bodies … but I’m usually able to capture light tens of millions of light-years away. These areas are between the constellation Auriga and the constellation Perzeus. I once wrote that I use the inversion of light to better search for small objects. In this picture you can already see 3 bodies in the haze … maybe comets, maybe galaxies … Today was nice so I didn’t have much time to do it because I ran away in the morning to take pictures..😁Show must go on!

The comet C2019 L3 ATLAS… and good night :)

The first object of interest in the finally clear night sky was the area in which Comet C2019 L3 ATLAS now moves. Control shot and … BINGO !!! In the first picture, the entire photographed area is a 135mm lens. I had no idea he would see so nicely…

and here is a picture of a comet stacked of 20 pictures (20x30sec)..

be a plan …

Unless something extraordinary happens tonight, the starry sky will be clear after more than two months. I have an equally clear plan. My object of interest will be two comets (comet 108P Ciffreo and comet C / 2019 L3 ATLAS) in the area of ​​the constellation Gemini and a nebula in the constellation Auriga. I can’t wait. With my equipment, the result will probably be two blurred points. But I don’t care. The most important thing is to point the lens in the right direction and have enough batteries for the camera.

Pictures of the starry sky are from http://www.heavens-above.com and the Stellarium program.

be before daybreak…

The weather forecast promised that the night sky would clear for a short time. So at half past two in the morning I assembled SAM and waited for a miracle. I hoped in vain that I would be able to take a picture of Comet Leonard today. Only before dawn did it rise sufficiently above the horizon. Moreover, the sky was not clear but with a thick haze. I was already, but so frozen that I couldn’t focus properly. Not even Siril (which I use for stacking) from the set of shots, which didn’t understand what I wanted from him. I’m not surprised. In the picture, I suspect that this is the most blurred spot in the upper left corner next to clear star….

When I found the pictures to be lousy, I returned to the garden to take a picture of at least the sky, which was almost a month gray…

back in to the night sky …

I can’t wait for the night sky to be full of stars again. It’s been cloudy here for over a month. Perhaps I will be able to take pictures of Comet Leonard, which is currently flying through the constellation Canes Venatici. I can’t wait…
Before I manage, I will remind you of a very slow flight of an object through the Pleiades star cluster. The flight lasted almost 20 minutes. The video is composed of 8 shots

NGC 7822

So finally back home. Yesterday’s second area where I aimed my 135mm lens is the NGC 7822 nebula. Although it is not a small area, the result is not very good. But it’s there. At a time when light from this area started in my direction, the kingdom of Judah fell after Nebuchadnezzar II. conquered Jerusalem.

Stacked by Siril program (10 x 30 sec, ISO 800)+Starless method

One of ten shots. After a small adjustment, so that at least something is visible

Andromedids fly …

Quite by chance, during today’s shooting of Messier 31, one Adromedid flew(bottom) in the moment of one of the 30 shots. A satellite had just flown over the M31…. There’s still something going on up there 🙂

I photographed two areas today so maybe some of it will work. I’m going to stuff it into the Siril program

Midnight’s shoting …

Elephatn’s Trunk Nebula with MY Cephei (red supergiant)

The midnight photo shoot of the IC 1396 nebula was complicated by a very strong wind. My SAM assembly is just too light. But it still didn’t convince me to buy an astronomical telescope. It’s too heavy a device with which I couldn’t wander the hills at night … I returned home in the morning pretty frozen. Rum and tea saved it 🙂
