Easter has given me some time to go to the woods and shoot some of my favourite targets. Not the ideal time for some (Orion), or equipment (Pinwheel Galaxy), but I did had *a lot* of fun. Both the night and the company I had for once were the best decompression before getting back to work.
Hope everyone had good holidays too!
And the final version. Not too much beyond some quick cropping, background neutralisation, histogram stretch and noise reduction.
I might retry this target driving out of Munich and with clear skies for more than 13 minutes! 😎
After more than a year, we couldn't step back from having some minutes of clear-ish sky yesterday. There were some clouds on top of our targets in Orion and a hell of a lot of Autobahn rubbish in the air, but just for the fun of setting things up and do some actual astro!
From the city center of Munich, in H-alpha (the R channel in the Hubble Palette). Around 13 minutes total exposure.
