All what you miss with a light polluted sky

Make the invisible visible: 30 second long exposure of Zurich night sky with the fast wide angle Sigma 14 mm f/1.8

Facing West, do you see Corona Borealis and Arcturus (Bootes)?

The milky way above Zurich city, light pollution high to very high – level (SQM) up to 18.89 mag./arc sec2

Facing North, do you see Ursa major, Ursa minor, Perseus, Giraffe, Cassiopea and much more ?

Jupiter and its 4 moons, do you see all the 4 of them? (shot with a 70-200 mm objective)

Facing West, do you see the Andromeda constellation and its galaxy?

If you did not see the constellations, click here 🙂 Wide angle pictures shot with SIGMA 14 mm f / 1.8, 30 seconds, ISO 1250. Jupiter shot with 200 mm f / 2.8, 0.4 second, ISO 400. Click each picture to zoom in.

Deep Space Objects with Nikon 70-200mm

Which objects can you picture in a clear night sky with a Nikon 200 mm? What magnification can you obtain with this photographic zoom?
Picture shot with ISO 800-1600, 2-3 min long exposure, 3.2-5.6 aperture – Mount: Skyguider pro. Click each picture to zoom in

A plate solver like Astrometry.net helps mapping your night shots: with 70 mm, no DSO is recognized in this part of the sky

With 200 mm, small emission nebula like the Bow tie nebula are mere dots

With 200 mm galaxies like the Whirlpool galaxy turn visible

Still a 200 mm shot, the ring of the Ring nebula in the Lyra constellation is pixel visible

The Andromeda galaxy is likely the only galaxy you can resolve up to this definition with a 200 mm

Pictures shot in Zurich area (sky brightness 18.5)

 

Of toads and frogs

Hidden in the grass, the toad awaits..

“3+1 courses, will they be my meal today?”

“Or will I swallow the whole feast?”

“Too long you waited for, Mr Toad” said the frog

I am going to push my tongue out!”
