I am a little unhappy with the above pic... the bottom did not come out very well. But the top is great... so here is a closer look at it.

Opens to 1600px.

Lovely work JK! REally looking forward to seeing your latest! This is an area of night sky I simply have not even tried yet.

Here is my latest from last night.

A77ii + 400/4.5 @ 1680mm.

Two panel mosaic since I could not quite fit the moon in the frame at 1680mm. Each side a stack of 100 frames in single shot with a wired release. (all I could snap off as it moved across the frame)

Best regards

Mike

Scaled to 2048px if you click. (about 1/2 original size)

So I got my A73 last summer and my first UW lens Rokinon 14 2.8 and here are a few from my first outing. Pretty heavy light pollution whereI am - typically a bortle 8-9. ALso Am just learning LR and photoshop. All these are single shot / 1 exposure attempts

stars 5
14/2.8 15s ISO 6400
Stars 1st attempt 3
14/2.8 30s ISO 640
stars 1
14/2.8 20s ISO 2000
Now coming up on a year later I know so much more and with photopills and some lightroom tutorials and learning about stacking etc I hope to do much better.
REally love what I have seen in this thread .

Well... in spite of shooting through misty clouds I still got some good detail on last night's moon. The "V" and "X" are still visible anyway.

Mike, these really are exceptional photos, the technical aspect is well beyond me, but they make great photos!

Remarkable astro-photography, Mike. Quite amazing what you've captured, presumably from an urban setting with problematic light pollution to deal with.
Thanks for sharing.

Back to non-sony deep space objects... This is the Pacman Nebula.

As with many Nebulae, it's made from clouds of light-emitting ionized gas. Conventional SLR type sensors filter out that band of light rather nicely but an Astro camera can capture it quite nicely, given enough time.


Here's the first one - conventional R/G/B capture with the ionized stuff added in from Ha and Oiii frequencies. Ha is deep red (near infrared) and Oiii emits in the blue range
Pacman Nebula RGB Ha Oiii


(Just over two hours of exposures)

Keeping just the 'narrowband' exposures from the ionized gas allows for some experimental fun with mixing the colours (eg, the Hubble images are usually false colour, but look great

Pacman Nebula - Ha and Oiii


I think I could do better but work and cloudy skies have frustrated me this year!

As a comparison, here's a version from the A6000. It's rotated and at a wider focal length but you can see how much red is missing...

    Nice pics. I was hoping to get some pics myself, but it was too cloudy.
    Plus, I might not have woken up ...

    How wonderful to see all these red moon pics!   I rather like it with mostly red and a hint of grey - it really helps the 3d effect which it often missing from full moon pics.

    I woke up nice and early for work to find a blanket of cloud covering our region. Ho hum.   I still hoped to catch a glimpse at work as totality was due to continue about half an hour passed my planned take off time. No luck there either - we'd turned to face east just before breaking cloud, leaving the red moon nicely hidden from view behind us.. Oh well. Ho hum.
