|Neat Comet with a D70|
|Oportunity during End of May to get to a darker area for comet imaging. The Nikon D70 is equipped with a 180mm f/2.8 lens and is mounted on a robust GP/DX equatorial mount.|
|Image have been taken during the night of the May 21th - comet was already declining in intensity.
The images are a sum of 5 images of 60s duration each. Dark was subtracted, no flat and no offset correction.
See here for more details on the D70 setting and accessories used.
|The star party, behind the scene...|
|Again, the conviviality of star party at St-Caprais has not to be demonstrated. The Reugnié family is always welcoming us when the sky is promising. This time it was around a "Petit-Salé" and most of the pixel and cassoulet gang members was there... More about St Caprais star party ?
Classic time: apero !
The Reugnié family: the mum of Marc, Delphine, her husband Marc, and the father of Marc
Excellent cakes with good wines...
Denis Marchais and Christian Buil: do you see the comet ???
