Hi all,

 

These have been my last 2 analog astro shots from summer 2022 but I haven't uploaded them until now. Both were taken with Pentacon Six, Meyer-Optik-Görlitz Telemegor 300mm f/4.5 lens on Kodak Portra 400 roll film.

The Milky Way turned out pretty well with some Messier objects (M16, M17, M24) and a lot of NGC clusters.

The Andromeda was hard to process, 30 minutes were not enough exposure time I think.

 

Medium format MW
40 min
 
Medium format Andromeda
30 min

You managed to get some nice images..

Looks like your skies are fairly dark from you imaging location..

You could try Andromeda at 45min and then a long 1hr to see how much you can gain..

Those are excellent images. I'm an exclusive digital imager but I really enjoy seeing what can be achieved with film.

Very well done!

 

What mount did you use for the camera?

 

Thanks, Allan

Thanks a lot! I used EQ5 GOTO, guided by ASI Air.
