C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) 見えた! – I Could See It!


カメラ設定練習と場所の選定のため、昨夜、NEOWISE コメットを見に行って来ました。レンズの焦点を星に設定するのって、無限大だとばかり思ってたら、違ったのね。バンちゃんに設定方法を教えてもらった結果、こちらがコメットの写真。- We went out to see the NEOWISE comet last night to find a good location for viewing and to practice setting up the camera for astrophotography. I thought the infinity focus setting should work for, but I was wrong. Banchan showed me how to set the focus in a few steps, and this is the result of my first comet shot!

ISO 800, 100mm, f/2.8, 2.0 seconds

10時半頃から天の川が見えて来ました。- Around 10:30pm, the milky way became visible nicely.

ISO 6400, 24mm, f/2.8, 13.0 seconds

もっと撮っていたかったんですが、コヨーテのような野生動物の遠吠えが1-2匹どころか、たくさん聞こえて来たので、怖くなって逃げ帰って来ました。最後に見たコメットは、山に沈む寸前でした。ジョシュアツリーのシルエットが、なぜかピカソドンキホーテの絵を連想させてくれた。- I wish I could stay there longer, but I heard some wild animals like Coyotes howling. It wasn’t one or two of them, but many. So I got quite scared, and ran back to our car. This is the last shot of the comet. It was almost touching the hill. The Joshua Tree silhouette reminded me of Picasso’s Don Quixote pictures somehow.
