So, here are the photos I’ve shot thus far. This is a very time-consuming pastime. Whenever I decide to begin my master’s degree, I’d like to spend a month or a semester in Iceland. For each photograph, I’ve included the cameras and specifications I used. Last year, I purchased a star tracker, but I’ve only used it two or three times. Remember to turn on the night mode in the panel, hit play, and relax.

My first decent frame of Andromeda a single exposure with the star tracker. on the 22nd of August 2020 with my old FUJIFILM X-M1. 171,6mm. f/6,4. Manual. 20sec exposure. 4896 × 3264px.
