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.

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.

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.
>>
>>3312039
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.
>>
>>3312050
>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.

>>3312055
Doing that just clears the search results.

>>3312063
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.

>>3312067
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.

Observatory guy here. I tried a practice shot in my garden the other day and it didn't go well, the Milky Way is a lot closer to the horizon than I thought and I could just barely see the faint tail of it poking above the buildings and trees surrounding me.

My concern is that the situation won't be much better once I get up to the observatory. It is about 8-10m higher in elevation and is on top of a hill but I'm not sure if that's really going to help. I was hoping for an angle similar to >>3311947 with the Milky Way reaching like half way up the sky portion at least.

Any advice here? From scrolling through Stellarium it seems about this time of year is when the Milky Way is highest and appears at the right time so I'm assuming all the other decent photos I'm seeing are taken from more Southern locations.
>>
>>3314118
You are assuming right. Also the center of the milky way is not the only thing you can photography on the sky. Find a good composition and make your shot, see how many clusters and nebulae you can catch.
>>
>>3314295
>see how many clusters and nebulae you can catch.

Gotta catch 'em all
>>
How do I avoid getting hot/cold pixels whenever I try and shoot for this? I use a Nikon d7000.

Don't expect much from the sides and corners
Get a small tracker like a Vixen Polarie or Staradventurer Mini and close the aperture to f/8
Do separate exposures for foreground and sky, compine in PS.
>>
>>3317435
Why would you wanna close the aperture when doing night sky photography?
>>
>>3317437
To reduce CA and aberrations in the corners. I did this with my kit lens when it was all I had. The extended exposure time means you will need some kind of tracking even when you bump up the ISO.
The Staradventurer Mini for example costs way less than a good fast wide angle/zoom.

It’s the shitty noise reduction. Makes for
blotchy shadows that are pain-inducing
to manipulate. Turned it off and night
photos become so much crisper.
>>
>>3322421
What did you do to get so much noise at only ISO 1000? Did you have to push exposure by 3-4 EV?

First test with my new a6000 w/ kit lens.

Had a bit of a difficult time getting things in focus, I made about 15 shots with a 10 sec exposure at f4.5 at 30mm.

I did some DSS/photoshop work so all the exif is gone.

I will retry soon again, with more exposures and a more interesting subject if I can. But the kit lens isn't that great for astro so I have no high hopes so far. Still fun though.

go on a killing spree involving lightbulbs, alternatively you can strategically place some c4 at transformators

Yeah I mean that would be ideal. This has little to no noise reduction on it. But the whole goal of Astro IMO is to have pixel sized stars. If I dial up reduction it loses breadth but I see your point

>But the whole goal of Astro IMO is to have pixel sized stars
You are wrong, on many levels.
The goal of astro is capturing the most photons possible, from the selected wavelength(s), with the most precise tracking possible, in the timeframe given by weather and the season.
Having pixel size stars is stupid, you don't look at the stars, you look at the nebulosity and the fine details in said nebulosity. The stronger stars will always wash out the nearby pixels, you can't do anything about it.
Doing astro landscapes adds the composition of the foreground and proper separate exposure for it and you will have to do a composite in PS.
Pic related for example had a stopped down low ISO exposure for foreground and a separate wide open high ISO exposure for the stars. Unfortunately the milky way was far away at the time I could make the image. (and the lit up scenery induced heavy light pollution)
Going for pixel size stars is stupid and futile, it makes you concentrate much less on the important parts.

This image >>3323578 for example is much better than the most posted here, even though it is noisy, blurry and oversaturated to Ken and back. It is just nice to look at. This >>3322421 is also one of the better ones despite the obvious newbie mistakes of missing focus (by trying to do it in one take instead of a composite) and over abuse of the sharpening slider. The composition and color management is there, though the photographer needs to practice more.

>>3312129
which one is the hublebuble ?
>>
>>3315728
First exsposure - anytime you shoot the sky, lowest iso you will be using, leave lens cap on, 30sec. Clear yor sensor of all unwanted photons before nightsky photography, after this if you have any dead, hot, stuck pixel there is no cure, if it start to spread...consider buying a new camera.
>>
>>3325791
yea it works fine on D2X but I needed something lighter to throw in a backpack.
>>
>>3325844
The lightest camera with a screw drive and reasonably modern sensor and AF is probably a D7200. But no flippy screen if you care about that.

I had my camera right then. In the middle of a heat wave and wall to wall sunshine and clear skies for weeks, tonight was the night it decided to piss down with rain. Fuckin' shit, bastard, cunt weather twat.

The Moon was quite low above the horizon too and I had some nice foreground options. Oh well, maybe next time.
>>
>>3329955
got something like that, shitty haze and clouds. was perfect yesterday. all still on cam, but pretty sure I got better shots with improvised stabilization than today with ten kilo tripod.

This one was with tri pod. Long exposure. I was trying to get the balance of letting enough light in vs avoiding too much blur from the movement of the moon. Around 6 secs seemed good.

I truly am retarded as I expected the moon to be bright.. So my 2x 2x teleconverter setup was useless. Had to go with just 300/2.8 on my apsc.

I wish I had some proper astrophotography gear. Instead I have a crappy 18-105 which will get out of focus if I look at it the wrong way and my shirt on the ground as a tripod.

generally you lower exposure just enough so you get the detail in the brightest part of the moon.

>>3330663
what are you doing at 6400iso there? should be able to safely drop it down and lower exposure to 1000s.

Hai, I would like to see what your turds could do with this image.
I'm convinced that it's one i'll just need to re-shoot, but i'd like to see if anyone could make it pop and if so, I'd like to learn how.
Can provide RAW files on request.

The exposure time is too long. You should have taken a bunch of shorter exposures and combined them to get rid of the noise. If you want longer exposures you'll need a tracking mount or you'll get star trails.

Big Cypress is the only place that I know of that has one of the darkest sky's left in Florida.
Problem is it's a long as drive Milky Way is only visible during summer which means half the summer it will be nothing but clouds and rain.
Hell Big Cypress is likely having standing water in some places out there.
It's about a 2 hour drive from where I am to get to Big Cypress and the roads are dark asf
Plus there is Puma's and Bears and a bunch of other shit out there you'd have to deal with.
>>
anyone tried astro-photography with a large format? It's mainly just for the milky way, I am going to the desert in Nevada next week and wondering if it is worth taking my LF camera, or just have my Pentax 67

He probably said that because he has a 5 inch scope and the other guy as an 11 inch scope. All other things being equal, the larger aperture scope should provide better images and greater potential magnification.

We have no idea what the other guys viewing conditions were though.

Not getting anymore gear besides faster wide angle lens lol.
I assume you mean it's always better to overexpose the night sky? I cant see how it would be better to over expose in everyday shooting.

First try at capturing the milky way. I way underexposed the pictures. Stacking them helped a bit, but I have no idea how to process.

What's the equipment like for solar photos?
>>
>>3301945
Shweet. What kind of tracker were you using?
>>
>>3305299
Not the anon in your reply and I'm only beginning to look into astrophotography, but why expose less than 25 seconds? Wouldn't using a star tracker allow for longer exposures like 45 seconds?
>>
>>3336550
>Wouldn't using a star tracker allow for longer exposures like 45 seconds?
It would. If there's no star tracker, expose only 600/focallength or 500/focallength or even 400/focallength seconds to avoid motion. 600 was the initial rule, it was updated to 400 for high resolution cameras.
>>
>>3329972
is this a composite, or was it taken in one shot?
i can never get a decent night sky with interesting foreground unless the foreground has low exposure.

Hey guys, complete newfag to this kind of thing here and not sure if I should post this here or in /fgt/.
I"m considering going out with my camera tonight, but not sure of this whole stunt is doomed from the beginning. I did some quick research and im kinda clueless.
My gear:
-Canon A-1, loaded with a fresh roll of CT Precisa 100 slide film, camera has a max exposure setting of 30 sec.
-Canon 50mm 1.4
-a really cheap Hanimex 28-70 4.8 zoom macro
-a cheap Tokina 70-210 telezoom
-NO cabel release at the moment

So, should i wait until i got a cable or should try it with 30 sec exposure?
>>
>>3336972
Learn by doing.

Forget the zooms, the 50mm 1.4 should work. At 100 iso don't expect miracles. Longer than 30 sec you'll get star trails anyway without tracking. If you haven't got a cable release put a piece of card in front of the lens, press the shutter button, wait a second or so and then remove the card to prevent camera shake (especially if you have a wobbly tripod).

In some circumstances slide film can be good for astro.
>>
>>3336980
Thanks for the answer, so there will be probably some pictures on the film. I just havent the desire to go waste away the slide film for some blank exposures.
I gonna head out now and will post results here!
>>
>>3336986
>will post results here!
This thread is about to die (after 71 days). I won't make new a thread unless I have some photos. If there's no thread make a new one with the results.

>>3336640
When I heard about shutter clicks I then got scared to ever use my DSLR when you're living on a $300 a month budget after bills are paid the thought of having something I'd need to replace was not fun

how far I should be from a megalopolis to have a sky dark enough to be able to photography the milk way and the Sunday's meteor shower?
>>
>>3337385
Noone cane give you that and you have to try it.
>>3337383 This shot is about 4mi/7km away from the cities on the bottom. Head your camera strait upwards in a dark corner and you'll little light pollution if there aren't any clouds.

lol but there are literally maps of light pollution
>>
>>3337518
In my experience these are just a short estimate of what's there.
>>
>>3337385
Well that would depend on how big the place is and if their is a anywhere dark easiest way to know is from where you're now if you can find a clear opening where you can see 2-3miles away and it's all dark that's likely how far you need to go.
So if you were in Downtown Vegas on the strip you'd possibly end up having to drive out to Area 51 and even then you'd possibly still have a glow from the city.

First time attempt at any sort of astrophotography. Came out midly satisified with it.

Shot out my back garden in the suburbs outside a city. Did a bit of editing in LR to the whitebalance to try get rid of the light pollution.

C&C please like I said it was my first go at it and I don't know what to look for to improve.
