My own Astrophotography
Novas


An exploding star is not common, there are Novas, Supernovas etc. Normally you need to have a big telescope to see them.

Comments:

If I had taken those photographs today (2021) I would use the following of my equipment.

Camera Lens / Telescope Reducer / Barlow Mount Comment
Canon 6D TS130, 910 mm x1 SkyWatcher EQ6 Still point object
Canon 6D Pentax 300 mm x1 SkyWatcher HEQ5 Wide field

Novas are not common to be that bright that they can be seen direct through a binocular. This one is possible to see.
