Astrophotography

Watching the skies is a fascinating experience and it can get pretty close to scifi at times, when seeing the planets and some of their general features with your own eyes, or when spotting the ISS, Tiangong or the Starlink satellite train in the skies.

This album includes my astrophotography pictures taken using a Nikon DSLR camera and various lenses, mainly a Sigma 150-600mm (no telescope or astronomy equipment). I also made an ISS Moon transit video, available here.

I used astronomy info provided by Stellarium; the Iridium flare and Starlink photos were taken using info provided by heavens-above.com; the ISS and Tiangon transit photos used info provided by transit-finder.com.
