Trying out with a long focal length. I found this to be quite challenging, and it took a lot of practice and adjustment to get to this point, which is still not perfect due to tilt in the optical train and focuser issues. This is a narrowband image of Bubble Nebula (NGC 7635). It lies about 11,090 light years from home. Taken with StellaLyra GSO 8″ RCT Carbon on ZWO ASI1600MM Pro. Total integration time 9h 40m.

Northern lights are rare in Denmark. Here in Northern Zealand, with a small stream in the foreground. Taken with Nikon Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S on Nikon Z6II.
A fantastic object, and my first really successful deep sky image: The Pleiades (M45) shot with Nikon D750 and Nikon 200-500mm f5.6 ED VR.

Narrowband image of Rosette Nebula (SH2 275). This is very nice object to work with as it is both beautiful and bright, making for one of my early “successes”, motivating me to proceed in deep sky imaging. The Rosette Nebula lies approx. 5,200 light year away. Shot with ZWO ASI1600MM Pro and William Optics RedCat Apo51. Total integration time: 16h 50m

An early attempt with milky way photography. It was still a bit bright, but I caught a thunderstorm in the background. Stack of 10 images taken with Nikon Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S on Nikon Z6II.
Siloes found at a field next to the road in Florida, US. To me these seemed straight out of a Sci-Fi movie, so I had to take the shot. Stack of 18 images of 10 seconds taken with Nikon Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S on Nikon Z6II.
Standing in the Wadden Sea, Denmark, in autumn, the milky way rose behind a lonesome tree at Mandø Ebbevej. So I centred the tree in the frame with the Milky Way behind. Panorama of 3 stack of 9 images each. Taken with Nikon 16-35mm f/4G ED VR on a modified Nikon D750.

The milky way centre is never very high above the horizon in Denmark, but here it is just visible at a burial mound on Møn, Denmark. This is a tricky place, because it is on a hill just at the roadside, but I found a good composition. Panorama of 6 stacks of 9 images and a panorama of 6 image lid with a flashlight in the foreground. Taken with Nikon Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S on Nikon Z6II.
