Astro + Arturia = AWESOME!

video upload by Jeremy Parker

"My love of astrophotography has intersected with my love of synthesizers in a beautiful venn diagram of awesomeness. At least I'm hoping so! One of the reasons I purchased my Arturia POLYBRUTE was exactly for making space music. It's been over a year since my last astrophotograhy video, so it's about that time.

Most of the images were taken from darker skies, but a couple came from home under my light pollution with the new astro camera and filters. I listed some details on the sounds I used, and also the images you'll see. If you want more dorky details, see below:

Scope: StellarVue SV102T, MoonLite NiteCrawler
Mount: Explore Scientific PMC-Eight G11, Spring-loaded OPWB on DEC, O-Vision Worm on RA
Cameras: QHY600 & QHYCFW3-L w/Chroma LRGB & 3nm Ha/OIII/SII, Nikon D5300 H-alpha mod, Nikon Z6, GoPro Hero8 Black
Guiding & Alignment: StellarVue F50 GuideScope & ZWO ASI290MM Mini Guide Cam, QHY Polemaster
Computer & Software: Surface Pro Windows 10, ASCOM POTH, CdC, PHD2, SGP, Backyard Nikon

"Hawkins" (pad) - beginning and end astmospheric chords
