The surface of the moon – as photographed today in the afternoon with a new lens which I recently bought on ebay and just received two days ago: an MTO-11CA from the russian manufacturer LZOS (built somewhen around 1992). This mirror lens has a focal length of 1m (!) and for this image I used an additional 2x teleconverter on my OM-D E-M5II to see how close I can get. In order to reduce the atmospheric […]

I planned to watch this year’s Perseid meteor shower at a mountain cabin (‘Mödlingerhütte’), at an altitude of 1523m. Unfortunately the sky was quite overcast and only a part of the southern night sky was clear for viewing the stars. Nevertheless, I enjoyed being outside at night and tried to capture a few interesting shots. Equipment used: E-M5II & 12mm f2.0 lens.
Another image from my late night photoshoot (at 3am…) during the Perseid meteor shower. For this image I have stacked 60 individual images á 13sec exposure time with the free software StarStaX and I am quite pleased with the result.
Last weekend I had the chance to watch the Perseid meteor shower at a completely clear sky. I only got 3 hours of sleep that night, but it was worth it :) I took these images with my E-M5 and 12mm lens. Exposure time was 13sec at 2000ISO.
I took this image while watching the geminid meteor shower two weeks ago in Leoben. I did not capture any trails on this image but I like how the milky way was still visible against the illumination from the city. Exposure was done for 13sec at 1600 ISO with my 12mm f2.0 lens.
