This is a stack of 38x60s at ISO1600. Just enough to get a good image before the moon made good images impossible 🙂

First sight of the faint galaxy M109. This is 11x60s at ISO800.
First sight of the faint galaxy M108. This is 7x60s at ISO800.
First sight of the very faint cluster M107. This is 4x60s at ISO800.
First sight of the very faint cluster M71. This is 5x60s at ISO800.
First sight of „one of the few real mistakes in the Messier catalog,“ (Burnham). While Messier was looking for a nebula or galaxy, all he found was this double star. This is 5x60s at ISO800.
My next try on the Hercules Cluster. Not bad for a night with a nearly full moon… 🙂 This is 55x60s at ISO800.
From some days ago, did some longer exposures this time 🙂 This is 3x180s at ISO800.
This is my first try of capturing (part of) the Milkyway. This is a 3x180s shot at ISO800. I think it is a nice start and I’ll keep trying to make better shots 🙂
