Description

Hallo / Hello! :)

This is my first try ever on the eagle nebula.
I always loved this deepsky-object, especially because of the great pillars of creation.
For me, it has a very cool story:
When I first thought of photographing this beautiful nebula, I realized, I wouldn´t be able to do this at home because of trees covering the sky in the south and west and a house covering the sky in the entire east.
But when I saw Jupiter very close to the edge, some degrees above the trees, I knew it was possible because the eagle nebula reaches almost the same hight as Jupiter at this time, as they are on the same degree of the equatorial grid ;) .
So I got clear skies this weekend and got this image out of it!
I hope, you like it!

Ich habe dieses DeepSky-Objekt schon immer geliebt, vor Allem wegen der Säulen der Schöpfung.
Für mich hat dieses Bild eine coole Geschichte:
Als ich zuerst darüber nachgedacht habe, diesen Nebel zu fotografieren, wurde mir klar, dass es für mich aufgrund von Bäumen im Süden und Westen und einem Haus, das den ganzen Osten bedeckt, nicht möglich sein würde.
Aber als ich Jupiter sehr knapp, nur ein paar Grad über den Blättern sah, wusste ich, dass ich doch eine Chance haben würde, weil Jupiter und der Adlernebel auf dem selben Grad des Äquatorialen Gradnetzes sind.
Dann habe ich nur noch auf einen Klaren Himmel warten müssen und dieses Wochenende konnte ich dann dieses Foto (leider nur bei einem fast vollen Mond) machen!
Ich hoffe, es gefällt euch!

Description: Here I tested my new post processing skills from early 2019 - I like this version much better as the stars arent so huge and have different colours, and as the nebulas colour is much more realistic and balanced! :)
