The Pin­wheel Galaxy

MARIO RICHTER, BRAN­DEN­BURG, GERMANY, 16 FE­BRU­ARY 2018

Mario says: “Since I wanted to pho­to­graph a galaxy and needed a long fo­cal length with a fast aper­ture ra­tio, I set up my New­to­nian in­stead of the Taka­hashi re­frac­tor. The night was very hu­mid and at –13°C the equip­ment was frozen very fast, so I only had enough time for 27 lights at 480 sec­onds.”

Equip­ment: Canon EOS 60D DSLR cam­era, Ce­le­stron Ad­vanced VX 8-inch New­to­nian, Sky-Watcher EQ6-R Pro SynS­can mount.
