BIG DIPPER, DEEP SKY

BIG DIPPER, DEEP SKY

The Big Dipper is an asterism in northern skies. Taken on January 16, the wider-field view seems to include an extra star along the Dipper’s handle, though.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

The photo of Heart Nebula (IC 1805, Sharpless 2-190) was the deep space picture of the year on the portal of National Geographic.

Goals

Deep sky photography, as a special area of astrophotography, requires a great deal of time spent in preparation and planning. As a result of the unusually long exposition time needed, ideally I am able to shoot one object per month, twelve a year at the most. However, as the weather is not always on my side, my dreams often don’t realise, but remain plans for future years. This means that I must plan ahead and prepare detailed shooting plans for 3 and 6-month periods, taking into consideration the travel routes of objects, climate conditions and the Moon phases. Not to mention my private appointments as well…..

Upcoming projects:

  • M101
  • M106
  • M83
  • Dust Stallion
  • Messier 8
