Andromeda

A short 15min exposure of the closest galaxy to us. The andromeda galaxy.

What is special about this image is that it was taken with fairly simple equipment from average skies and short exposure time, yet it brilliantly shows details in the galaxy.

Exif: 30sec * 51, ISO 3200, f2.8 at 200mm using Tamron 70-200 on Canon 6D

Emu rising over Waratah Bay
Copyright: Steve Johnston
A mosaic of 63 images taken from Walkerville South, Victoria, Australia on 4 April 2016. The image shows Jupiter in upper left, the Magellanic Clouds in upper right, Mars and Saturn forming a triangle with Antares in the lower centre, the green cast of airglow around the horizon and the electric blue of bioluminescent plankton in the surf of Waratah Bay. The dust lanes within the Milky Way between Scorpius and Crux (Southern Cross) are known in Aboriginal culture as the "Emu in the sky". Canon 60Da, 28mm @ f/2.8, ISO-3200, exposure time 25 seconds per frame.
