I finally found the time and motivation to publish the unboxing video of my Star Adventurer which I bought back in January as well as a descriptive blog entry.

After a depressingly long time without even the slightest hint of a clear sky I finally got the chance to test my new CLS filter and the tracking mount.

To conclude my first year of owning a DSLR and starting to photograph the night sky I decided it would be nice to have a video that documents my progress. Et voilĂ  - here it is.

I just got my new ultra wide angle lens and was eager to try it in the field. Although the night was anything but clear, I decided to go out and take some pictures. As the clouds did not seam to have any intention to disappear and on top of that the moon was out, I decided on a picture of the moon and its reflection in a puddle.

As the night was clear and it would have been a shame to waste it I made a spontaneous trip to my standard observation point which is close to home. This time I was alone and totally forgot about any interesting foreground.

This image was taken during sunset right before an astrophoto session. As we arrived early at our destination and I travel with light gear I had enough time to shoot the sunset. The original size of this image is 141 mpixels.

Beginning with this picture I wanted to put at least something interesting at the foreground. As there was nothing to be found I had to take myself. Unfortunately this day there were a lot of clouds that cover the milkyway. Thus I will have to redo this picture eventually.

This is so far my favourite picture taken at night. Albeit there is no visible milkyway I got lucky to have a quite reasonable composition, which honestly was purely by chance as it has been pitch-black and I have never ever been at this place before.

This panorama was a first experiment to edit a picture to look more like an epic sunset.
