My Astrophotography
Solar system, comets

Comet photo can be from wide field to high magnification photos. The comets are in orbits around our Sun and every year there are some new ones which come close to the Sun. The brighter ones can have a tail of 10 to 30 degrees, it's very very exiting to look at.

More to read about comets at Wikipedia:

Even it the comets looks to be very far away it happens they come close to us, if just only one of them hit the Earth it's goodbye for us. Ask the dinosaur how fun that was.

If I had taken those photographs today (2022) I would use the following of my equipment.

Camera Lens / Telescope Reducer / Barlow Mount Comment
Canon 6D TS130, 910 mm x1 SkyWatcher EQ6 Small comets
Canon 6D Pentax 300 mm x1 SkyWatcher HEQ5 Big comets
Canon 6D Canon 50 mm x1 Tripod Very big bright comets

Sometime I take time lapse of comets, it's very interesting to see how they move between the stars.
