My first astrophotography attempt (don't laugh)
6

Hi all,

I am a hobbyist photographer since 2018. Normally I do daytime photography like, animals, macro, landscape with travels etc.

I was getting interested in astro but I live in Netherlands and light pollution is high. We don't have any mountains here so I never tried to do. I bought a Samyang 135mm (1 month old) for 275 euros and I must say a nice lens. I bought this for astro when I travel.

Couple weeks ago I made an attempt to shoot and experiment with it. I took 150 images, 1.6 seconds, iso 1600 and stacked it in siril and processed in gimp. I watched YouTube videos for this so I am aan noob with these programs too.

I would appreciate feedback :). In the near future, after I get some experience, I am thinking tot buy a smal tracker (ioptron of skywatcher adventurer).
