Holiday Snaps

A couple from a last week's trip to Fuerteventura...my imaging site when not imaging from Baumber. Weather wasn't great at night with either thin cloud or clouds passing by every 30 seconds or so which hampered long(ish) exposures but still pleased with the results.


 


Might be visiting Baumber this weekend...so hopefully the skies are clear although the moon is going to be up.

Great stuff, if a bit wintery for 'holiday snaps! ' BRRRR...  :brr:


Very nice core control in M42 and lots of dust for 3 minute subs. Well no, just lots of dust. Really good.


You continue to set a lofty standard for this kind of mobile imaging.

Thanks everyone, very much appreciated :thumbsup:


 




Seriously good and shows the value of good dark sky.




The M42 image was taken from the hotel balcony where I couldn't even see the Milky Way ( I was lucky to be able to see Polaris to be able to align) and it was also flanked by 2 huge (sodium) flood/spotlights. I think the IDAS filter really helped and I wasn't expecting much from that image so it was a nice surprise to see some dark stuff. It was facing out to sea though so after the promenade lights there was nothing else to interfere.
