Remember Neowise

The distance of Comet NEOWISE from Earth is now 143,663,347 kilometers


A few weeks ago it was closer to Zurich and I got the opportunity to shoot it from a city park. Here with a 14 mm f/1.8

It will come back in 6,800 years. Here I shot it with a 200 mm f/2.8

Let’s remember its proton thin but straight tail, as you can see in this cropped picture shot with the aid of a Skyguider pro mount. And its dusty white bent tail, too.

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.

The skiing plateau

Alpe di Siusi (Seiser Alm) is a Dolomite plateau and the largest high-altitude Alpine meadow (German: Alm) in Europe (Wiki)… and you might need 5 hours for comfortably skiing it east to west and back (and shoot many pictures in between).

Your round trip might begin close to the Schlern (Sciliar) double peak

… pass along the Sassolungo (long rock) e Sassopiatto (flat rock)…

… further skiing towards Monte Pana

.. and slowly back to Compatsch

A misty beginning

Blue Prime Tower and red construction cranes, the few colors of the day

A wider view towards west

Protruding fingers, Zurich modern skyline in the mist.

The Alps crowning a straight southwards view on the city.

Zurich city center with its tall buildings and church towers, the lake behind.
