Astro Photo by Fujifilm X-T1

I just took one series of shots before the moon and the marine layer came up, the target was still too low though.


Stocked Fuji X-T1 + BORG 55FL F3.6 + VR3XII & HEUIBII filters, 12 x 30″ dithered by SS-one KODO

Obviously my backyard sky was too bright without LPS filter. Also exposure was too short and ISO was too high. I didn’t have time to take several trial shots. But at least I feel the camera showed me the potential for Ha transmission.

I will use LPS filter to have better S/N next time and check around while changing the combination of filters. Also I’m sure KODO’s dithering should be very helpful for the smoother background. Let’s see more.

BTW, this is 30″/ISO2500 dark frame of X-T1 X-trans sensor after extremely stretched. Looking very good to me.

  1. Looks like the Borg 55mm f/3.6 gives good coverage of an APS-C chip. Thanks for sharing.
