The Lookout Tower of Galyatető
Copyright: György Soponyai

The geodetic tower of Galyatető was build in 1934 atop of Galya (part of Mátra mountain) 955 meters above the sea level. At the beginning of the age of GPS these kind of towers became obsolete.

The old and unused building was renovated in 2015 and today it is the highest lookout tower of Hungary.

At the Top of the Country
Copyright: György Soponyai

Hungary is located in Carpathian Basin surrounded by the Alps and the Carpathian Mountains. As a result of this geographical position, the country (and mainly the amateur astronomers living here) "suffer" every Fall and Winter from dense fog that stales for weeks blocking all lights from the skies.

On the night of 20th December 2016 only the topmost area of the Mátra mountain was high-enough to break the top of the fog layer so I decided to travel here for taking this photograph. It is a composite of 130 two-minute-long startrail pieces taken atop of lookout tower on Galya (a peak of Mátra). Here the elevation is 985 meters (955 + 30 of the tower) that is slightly lower than the height of Kékes (1014m), the highest mountain of Hungary. The Kékes is visible at the rightmost pole on this photo.

The geodetic tower of Galyatető was built in 1934 but at the beginning of the age of GPS these kind of towers became obsolete and uneless. The old building was renovated in 2015 and today it is the highest lookout tower of the country.

NGC7635 the Bubble Nebula

NGC 7635, also called the Bubble Nebula, Sharpless 162, or Caldwell 11, is a H II region emission nebula in the constellation Cassiopeia. It lies close to the direction of the open cluster Messier 52. The "bubble" is created by the stellar wind from a massive hot, 8.7 magnitude young central star, SAO 20575 (BD+60°2522). The nebula is near a giant molecular cloud which contains the expansion of the bubble nebula while itself being excited by the hot central star, causing it to glow. It was discovered in 1787 by William Herschel. The star BD+60°2522 is thought to have a mass of about 44 M☉.

With an 8 or 10-inch (250 mm) telescope, the nebula is visible as an extremely faint and large shell around the star.

The nearby 7th magnitude star on the west hinders observation, but one can view the nebula using averted vision.[6] Using a 16 to 18-inch (460 mm) scope, one can see that the faint nebula is irregular, being elongated in the north south direction.

Blessed are those who will own a H-alpha filter, as they can even image through the inferno flames.

Can we do any sort of imaging under a light-polluted sky? Today we can still use narrowband filters, but will it be the same when full-spectrum LEDs will spread?

M27 on HaOIII-rgb
http://outters.fr/wp/m27-hoo-rvb/

This is the second image after a difficult recovery of the Sirene observatory.

M27 appears to be an easy object to be imaged, think you, the treatment is quite complex because Ha and OIII layers overlap quite well in the center and it is difficult to find a good compromise. Include details from the center of the nebula in the images of the VLT and Hubble.

RGB channel retrieves natural colors of stars.
