I needed to test my new power tank to ensure that it is a) functional and b) all my equipment works as expected. This widefield image of the constellation Perseus is the result of my endeavor. Sadly there were a lot of clouds rolling in, so I called it a night and worked with what I had and was usable.

It has been a long time since I have been out photographing the stars. It has been even longer since when I was out in the field with some friends. So last weekend we finally went out again to take pictures of this once in a lifetime event of Neowise visiting earth. In the remainder of this article, I will show some impressions of this little trip.

My first ever image of the two galaxies M 81 and M 82 also known as Bode's Galaxy and Cigar Galaxy. Like with my last image of the Whirlpool Galaxy a longer focal length would be nice. But it came out quite nice.
