When I was driving home in october, I saw the Pleiades rising just above the hill near to my home village Magyaregres in Hungary. I had an idea to take a picture with the Pleiades and myself on top of the hill, so I started a timelapse with one of my camera, and walk to the top of the hill with the other, and with the tripod. I waited a few minutes there and hoped that everything is in frame that I wanted (me and the Pleiades), and there are a few pictures where I stand still without any motion blur.
When a I went back and checked, I find a few nice pictures, so I went home, set up the gear and the tracker in the garden and make more light frames for the original picture. After a half-hour clouds come, so I had to stop. In the next weeks and months there wasn't any really clear sky here, so I didn't have any chance to collect light but I tried, of course without any success. In the middle of december there were a few clear nights so I collected totally more than 6 hours for the integration, did the the post processing after Christmas and this is the result. I don't really satisfied with the post processing but generally I think it's not bad. It shows everything that I wanted to show: a tiny human with his gear, and the huge universe above, that looks dark and almost empty, but his camera can show that, It isn't dark, nor empty.

Summer milky way season has started, but instead of the core, I chose the Cygnus region this time. It's less popular for astrophotographers, but also a very spectacular part of the milky way.
It rises relatively early in the night, in this part of the year you can catch around 10pm above the northeastern horizon.

The foreground is a couple of trees on top of the hill, near to my village, Magyaregres. They have perfect silhouettes for such pictures.

Date: 14.29.2022. around 11pm.

Exif: Fujifilm X-A5(astro mod), Fujifilm 35mm F1,4 @2,8; ISO1600, 30x30sec stacked, tracked with Skywatcher Star Adventurer

After the C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) that visited our solar system in the summer 2020, I didn't expected, that I will have a chance to photograph a comet in the near future, but it has happened.
The C/2021 A1 (LEONARD) has arrived, and I was lucky with the weather. The sky was clear and the temperature was frosty but I had to take the opportunity.
I get up at 2:50 at night, and headed to a nearby field, where are some trees on top of a hill, that seemed good for the foreground. I loose some time while setting up the gear, and the comet rise fast over the trees, so I captured the comet at first, than take a photo of the trees, than blended the two photos in post processing.

Location: near to the village of Magyaregres, Hungary
Date: December 8, around 3:45am
Exif: Fujifilm X-T2, Samyang 135mm F2, wide open, ISO2000, 11x30sec tracked stacked
Foreground exif: same gear ISO250, F2, 4min
