Central europe (or more like central Germany) is absolutely horrible for astro, this is the best one i could got
Also a relative got me a "meade etx 70 at "go to" telescope. I'm already looking forward to use it with my nikon

Is it an Alt-Az mount? Does it have an EQ wedge to turn it into a pseudo EQ mount?
That trailing is really bad, looks like it didn't track at all. Can't even tell if the shmutz at the top of the image is nebulosity or a trailed brighter object. Otherwise it is neat how one can pick up some faint details from such a bad take.
Welcome to the hobby, say goodbye to your nights and money.

didn't even used the mount yet, it was just a regular exposure (30sec was too long, but didn't wanted to raise the iso even more), which is why you still can see some trails

This one was the first "astro related" shot i ever took, with a 50mm at the exact same location, but with the nikon d80. (i know it's shit, but i like the melancholic vibes) i also wanna bump this thread

I really hope you put these into print, A4 at least or A3. If not, hurry up and do it, the photos, especially landscape photos come to life in print. I suggest starting with your first shot, it looks like it would look nice in print.

So, how do you go shooting stars? I'm completely clueless. Keep it high iso to get as many as possible and then tone down noise in posprocessing. Or you go low iso, and up the exposure to get the same effect? Or do you do some multiple exposures to get best of both.

>>3304856
Widest aperture you have, lowest ISO you can manage, expose less than 25 seconds. Or if you want to be like the good shots in this thread you stack

For star trails expose as long as you can manage while minimising noise and stack however many you want. Typically a couple hours worth of 30s exposures

You should make it clear. When you simply bring up a [nm] number with a filter it is automatically assumed to be the wavelength.
Just a tip and observation so people don't look at you funny in the astronomical club.
Saying it is a 7nm bandwidth Ha filter is much more clearer.

That's the double double. Look closer and you will see that both consist of two stars so there are 4 stars in total. The bright star is Vega which is where the alien signal came from in the movie Contact.

So I have an observatory near (pic related) but don't know shit about astronomy, how can I tell when is a good time to take a photo to get something interesting in the sky (such as the Milky Way) and in which direction?

Just tried that out. The observatory is listed in the location browser but I can't seem to switch to it. Also moving through time is incredibly slow, I'd probably end up going on a Friday or Saturday night (I could go every night but not late enough for street lights to turn off) and skipping ahead 6 days would take forever.

How often does the layout of the stars "loop"? Like is it going to be the same every night (although perhaps at different times) or would the Milky Way only appear above the domes (say I wanted to recreate the photo posted, facing the same direction) like once a week/month?

>How often does the layout of the stars "loop"?

Once every 24 sidereal hours. If you use solar time the stars will move about 1 degree to the west each day.

The center of the milky way which is the juiciest part to photograph will be located in the southern part of the sky around 18:00 sidereal time. There's probably an app you can download for your phone that gives you your local sidereal time by using the phones GPS or you can use an online site and just type in your coordinates manually.

That should be about 1am for me then being North of London. That photo was taken facing approximately South too so I should be able to get a good angle on that.

I also considered getting a photo of stars above this dish but this photo was facing East.

See if satellites are enabled. They can slow down the program quite a bit.

It's not that, it's having to fast forward through the entire day. I didn't realise that if you keep pressing the fast forward button it goes even faster but it's still a bit awkward, it'd be easier if you could jump forward a certain amount of time or even better type in a specific time and date.

Do you know how I can travel to a specific location? Pic related is the window I have and I've found the observatory. None of the buttons at the bottom seem to work, pressing enter doesn't seem to do anything, and there's no confirm or ok button. Unticking use current location as default also doesn't help, ticking get location from network switches the selection to where I actually am but I can't get it to go there either.

You can use 'J' 'K' and 'L' instead of the on screen buttons. 'J' increases the backwards speed, 'K' makes the timer go to its original speed and also stops and stars the timer. 'L' increases the forward speed.

You can also go into the keybinding settings and add your own shortcuts. For instance, I've added so that if I press - or + on the numpad I can jump backwards or forwards one solar day and if I hold the alt key while pressing either - or + the jump will be in sidereal days instead.

You can also type in the time and date manually in the time and date window, pic related.

For your location you should just have to click on Bayfordbury Observatory in menu and it will instantly change the coordinates.

That's great, thank you. Hopefully the location provided by my network is close enough that the results are similar to what I see on the screen. I'm only about a 10 minute walk from the observatory but I don't recognise the field it's placed me in. Would be able to see the domes in the frame so I can work out my composition in advance.

>>3312040
Yeah I figured out the hot keys, does make it a lot easier moving forwards and backwards.

>For your location you should just have to click on Bayfordbury Observatory in menu and it will instantly change the coordinates.
I typed it into the search bar (next to the magnifying glass) and then clicking on that puts it into the Name/Town field and changes the coordinates. I did notice they're now coming up slightly different to what's in that screenshot but it's still not going there.

Do you know how I can access the location list? I'm wondering if perhaps the add to list button is actually working and there's just no visual feedback.

Yeah I think you need to press the "Reset Location List" button in order to see the places you just added.

now you gotta be trolling

Doing that just clears the search results.

What's wrong with that? I've got a bit under a 180 degree field of view that I'd like to shoot towards but no lens that wide, so it'd be handy to know if I should face more East or more West. I guess it doesn't matter that much and I can just figure it out by trial and error.

The landscape won't change if you change your location in Stellarium, only the orientation of the celestial sphere. You can take a 360° panoramic image of the observation spot and add your own landscape if you want.

Oh right, so it's just like a generic placeholder type thing? I figured it was more like Google Streetview.

That would be a cool thing.

The satellite in your image might be NUSAT-3. Was the picture taken on the 7th of July 2017 around 6 in the morning?

it actually could be autogenerated horizon from topo data, like peakfinder.org etc.
