I´ve been a long time absent with images due to the horrible weather conditions in north Germany. Fog, clouds and snow were the constant compagnions for november to first week of february. But last sunday I use the chance of seeing the stars again. After a sunny and cold day I travel to my observatory 50 mls. south-east of Hamburg. Sliding away the roof and have a look to the clouds at the horizon was one moment. The thin cloud region settled for 6 hours and one hour after midnight a strong dry wind from east wipe away the clouds.
I go for galaxies in the zenith, M 106 and M 51, good, if low fog appear.
See here M 106, 39 subs, 5h 10 min.
