@Tomasz: I look forward to check out your thread of the astrotrac!!  :D

 

Me either :D

 

Quick wide test of AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm F3.5-4.5G ED.

I can capture 'a little bit more' of the sky right now ;)

'Astronomic weather' is awful. No clouds but almost full moon so most of the fainted stars are missing and that's why there are so many colors in the sky. City gives yellow-orange, sky gives purple and moon (right side off frame) gives blue ;)

 

Anyway with this lens I can easily catch a lot of Milky Way and the star fields itself :)

Happy :D

 

P.S.

Astrometry is right now down, happens from time to time, so when it will get up I'll add descriptions. But you can easily see the Polaris - top left, Cassiopeia - immortal W, Perseus - with the brightest Mirphak just below Cassiopeia, Double Cluster - between both of them, Andromeda (and very, very faint galaxy) - in the dead center - with Pegasus - spreading to the right side and Auriga - with the brightest Capella bottom left. And a few smaller which nobody cares ;)

That's a lot of constellations on one photo. At least for me used to use 18mm FX lens on DX which gave me only a 27mm :)

 

-------------------

Edited to add description photo.

 

That's why I like Astrometry. I mistaken Polaris with another star :)

Anyway as I said earlier, a lot of sky caught :)
