M13

7.8.2022 at 00.34 - 01.52 - Turku (III)
Santeri Peltola

For my part, I started the Ds season about a week ago and then I took the first test photos of the M13 object and at the same time I also had to test how the devices and programs work. Last night, the shooting of the same object was continued for a few pictures, and the combined exposure time in the stacked picture is 1 hour 40 minutes, and the coming nights also look moderately good for growing additional material.

Today there was a very quick shot of the sun from the balcony. At first it seemed that there was nothing to photograph in the sun, but now I still thought to overexpose the picture and see if there was anything around, but there didn't seem to be anything miraculous there either, but then I caught my eye with a moderately sized protuberance.

M13 M101

The DS season opened this summer. It was tested last night to see if all the programs and cameras still work or if you need to reinstall the programs and it worked fine. I took 5 test photos of both M13 and M101 targets with 300s exposure time. Pictures taken from my own balcony in the middle of light pollution.

I was looking at pictures of the sun taken earlier on the computer and a picture of a long and narrow filament caught my eye.

NGC 2239

It will be the last deep space shooting, so a couple of nights, Rosottes Nebula was photographed from my own balcony. The yard lights disturbed the descriptions a lot and the subject was already really low but I was able to take 3 hours of exposure from the subject otherwise the weather was bright and clear both nights.

So today it was quite insane to go to the sun to the top. it seemed, at least to my own eyes. I don’t know how common they are but for myself this was the first time I noticed such a sun on the surface. Here’s another timelapse of the pictures I took over two hours.

Even today came the described sun again, I have now photographed the same larger comma group on three different days and taken the timelapse. It is interesting to see how the comma group changes its shape on different days. Here’s today’s timelapse where I took a total of 2 hours of pictures.

Today was a really great day with the sun shining really spectacular and no cloud cloud anywhere. For two hours came a timelape taken from the sun today in this short timelape video of the sun.

After a long day of sunshine, it was a slightly cloudy day, but that didn't stop me from capturing the sun either. This time I decided to try to take a closer look at the sun's spots, but the cloudy gusts of wind made it quite difficult to shoot, but I got a moderate picture when I took it, and I also took an hour's worth of pictures in the timelapse video.

The sun has now offered its best for several days and at least tomorrow the sun is still shining in full swing so you have to make the most of these remaining sunny days. So today I got to try taking a timelapse video and I managed to get a very short clip of the pictures I took.

Sunset season opened this year. Over the weekend, the Daystar Quark chromosphere filter I bought last autumn was tested for the first time today, so I was able to capture the sun from a cloudless sky, which shone really brightly and warmed me up comfortably.

Messier 31

Santeri Peltola

Last night the sky became clear so you couldn’t describe for a long time even though there were times when the clouds came forward to disturb you. After midnight, the clouds were no longer visible so I was able to properly capture the Andromeda galaxy from which I took 180s of exposures and gain 100 total exposures accumulated in an hour and 45 minutes. This time, I decided to try what Andromeda would look like if the image turned black and white and how well that black hole in the center of the galaxy might stand out. I was surprised at how many different details in the end stand out from the...

Last November, a couple of hours of exposure were taken from Andromeda Galaxy.

It has been cloudy for a long time so it is good to feel the pictures taken earlier. That is, the picture I took this September of North America-Sumu
