C'est la bonne saison sur l'ile pour capter le Petit Nuage de Magellan et 47-TUC. Malheureusement en ce moment les périodes sans nuage sont rares et très courtes. Au moins je n'ai pas besoin de "chauffer" 😂

C'est un premier essai avec une mise au point qui n'est pas parfaite ... et ce soir là les piles du Staradventurer ont décidé de me lacher, d'où les trainées d'étoiles ou étoiles allongées 😒

Je vais retenter ma chance dans quelques jours avec plus de temps de pause 😉

Les commentaires sont les bienvenus.

I spend my holidays in a southern place. At this location this is one of the best period to photograph the Small Magellanic Cloud and 47-TUC. Unfortunately cloudless periods are rare and very short.

This is a first try. The focus was not perfect ... At the beggining of the session, batteries of the Staradventurer decided to fail ... so stars are not really simple dots
😒

I will try some new captures in a few days
😉

Your comments are welcome.
