My iOptron SkyTracker Pro in the backyard. 🏡

We've had a LOT of rain over the past 2 weeks. I am hopeful that the forecast for next week holds and we get some clear nights.
I am in the middle of reviewing the iOptron CEM60 mount for deep sky imaging - but my little SkyTracker will be running in the background as well.

Oh boy, new toy. Should be a nice, dark sky this weekend to try out my new sky tracking mount. Hoping to get some good deeper space shots with the master blaster. At 600mm even a 1 second shot has blur, so this should be fun #Ioptron #SkyGuiderPro #IoptronSkyTracker #PhotographyEquipment #Astrophotography

While at the Black Forest Star Party last week we enjoyed two outstanding nights of clear skies. I set up a camera with a 50mm lens on a tracking mount and did some widefield imaging. Here's a picture I took of Cassiopeiae and the surrounding region.#astrophotography #canonphoto #nightunderthestars #ioptronskytracker

Milky way galaxy. Single exposure taken in Rio Hurtado, Chile on 7/25/17. I was planning on doing more deep sky photography during our vacation in Chile. I was disappointed when my counterweight attachment broke on our first night there. I also had trouble with polar alignment in the southern hemisphere. I used the opportunity to try out some wide field shots of the milky way and to learn how to take time lapses. I'm now thankful for the broken counterweight! I enjoyed photographing the milky way more than I expected.

The Orion Nebula

I captured this image using the #tamron70200 and a #ioptronskytracker. This allowed me to do a much longer exposure and gather more light. Without a star tracker, I would've been limited to just 2 seconds for my shutter speed!

Putting the SkyTracker Pro to Work

I have really been enjoying the spontaneity of using the iOptron SkyTracker Pro both in the backyard and while out and about.

So small, so quick to set up. It scratches my astrophotography itch with limited effort and motivation. Expect some bigger projects using this camera mount over the next few months.

2. Orion from the backyard (Quick early morning session)

Check out my recent review of the SkyTracker (Current link in bio) for the full photo details and everything else I know about this little red box.

Our first attempt at capturing the North America Nebula on a partially cloudy evening. Its hard to fathom, but there are some ~4000 stars in this frame alone. Kinda nuts 🥜🤔🤓

The Pleiades at 135mm

Here's a relatively short exposure (2 hours) from the backyard. The camera (Canon T3i/600D) was fitted with a SkyTech CLS CCD filter to help ignore the intense light pollution from my city (Red Zone). The camera had a 28-135mm F/4L lens attached, and I used tape to keep the focal length maxed out at 135mm. M45 is small at this FL, yet a large target through most telescopes.

I've now returned the iOptron SkyGuider Pro mount I was reviewing, and have an iOptron SkyTracker in its place. I am impressed with the performance of this little red box when used with a DSLR camera and lens!

La galaxia Andrómeda es la galaxia espiral más cercana a nuestra Galaxia. Se encuentra a aproximadamente 775 kiloparsec de la Tierra (2.5 millones de años luz), en contraste, la Vía Láctea mide 30 kiloparsec, y la Tierra tiene un diámetro de 0.19 segundos luz). Está ligada gravitacionalmente a nuestra Galaxia y se acerca a nosotros a una velocidad de 300 km/s. Se estima que en unos 5000 millones de años se funcionará con la Vía Láctea. Es apenas apreciable a simple vista al ojo humano desde la Tierra en lugares con cielos oscuros teniendo una escala angular al ojo de aproximadamente 30 minutos de arco (tamaño aproximado de la Luna). Andromeda es una galaxia más de las miles de millones de galaxias que conforman la Red Cósmica de nuestro Universo y está conformada igual que el resto principalmente de estrellas de todo tipo espectral, gas y polvo, entre otros objetos.

McWay Cove, Big Sur California. Closing out the Milky Way season. The horizon was a dusty brown that was not visible during the day. Lingering smoke from all the recent fires? Or polluted air from China? Not sure. So no colorful air glow that is usually seen from this location

So I decided to give the Sombrero galaxy a shot. This is definitely a telescope target, I took this with my DSLR not knowing how small it was lol. This is zoomed in at 300mm and heavily cropped, just to give you an idea of how small it is.

Finally got out on a camping trip with my family this weekend and had some time to do a little astrophotography! This is my first tracked and stacked up close shot of the Milky Way! Unfortunately my shutter remote had a loose wire because I couldn't get it to hold the shutter down, so I was stuck using the maximum 30 second in camera shutter on my tracker!😤 This is a stack of only 4 images shot at ISO6400, f/3.5, canon EF50mm f/1.4, Sony A7rii. Even just stacking 4 images greatly improved the signal to noise ratio after using such a high ISO! There is still tons of room for improvement such as doing much longer exposures(when I get a new shutter release remote!) and many more stacked frames, but happy with these first results. All processing done in Camera Raw and PS

If you’re into night/Astro photography and you haven’t considered a sky tracker you’re crazy.. #ioptronskytracker is pretty much my favorite 12 pound addition to my camera gear ever 😅 here’s a 241 second exposure of the Milky Way shot while camping on a Volcano, shot at ISO 320 and F 2.8. And of course it is composited over my favorite little curve on Oahu. Do you shoot with a sky tracker?!?! @mikedemelloshoots inspired me to get mine, maybe I can inspire you to get yours 🤙🏽
.
A sky tracker basically tracks the rotation of the earth, which allows for a longer exposure of the stars/sky with a lower ISO, this means super clean non grainy single images of the sky are possible. .
