Some views of the real outer space. Since my maximum focus lengh is around 550mm, most of the galaxies are shot with a very small scale. Anyway I’m always trying to get a good impression of these objects. Of particular interest for me are pictures with local objects of our galaxy and a real deep sky 0bjects. An example is the pic of NGC6946 and NGC6939. I collect this type of pictures at Close Encounters.
M81, M82 and NGC3077
Captured from March to April 2017. Actually I intended to collect more photons than I finally did. The bright nights of the north german summer stopped me and I decided to start with the processing. Maybe I’m gonna add some light next year…
