Yesterday I decided to try my new light pollution filter:
As mentioned before, it is tuned to block unwanted wavelengths and my first look through it provided a definite increase in contrast.
I used the burst mode on the iphone to make 400 1/15s pictures of the orion nebula at 25x magnification. Not al pictures stacked equally well and I ended up using 180 of them corresponding to 12 seconds exposure. Sadly, the result wasn’t as awesome as I hoped:
My next try will be shot at about 50x magnification and at 1/2 sec exposure using slow shutter cam. I wont give up any time soon! 😛
Also, here is an overexposed shot of jupiter and 4 of its moons at 75x magnification. Will try to make a better photo next time 😉
