Swan with 50mm and barndoor
driving my familie around eastern Germany I used the few quit good nights to make a mosaic of the swan. For there is not enough room for four people and hightech astro-equipment I only took my Barndoor an a 50mm Yashica f1. 4 lens.
The moon was a little bit harsh on the last tiles on the right, but I'm pritty happy with the result.
In total I made 11 fields with 20*1Minute exposure time. Off course flats and darks as well.
My try to integrate additional pictures of ngc 7000(135mm) and the veil nebula (200mm)weren't succesfull. I allways get the error that the registration of the two frames failes. APP suggests to increase the number of analysed stars, but I allready set that on 10000.
Has anyone an idea how I can solve this Problem?
Best regards Guido
