August 18th: beautiful sunrise at Mesa Arch, Canyonlands NP, Utah. The Moon is visible at the top of the image, close to the edge.

Wow, that's a splendid image! :D

Messier 100 is one of my favorite galaxies. Your picture is a superb wide-angle portrait of the galaxy and its satellites. We see a lot of structural detail and wonderful colors in M100 itself, and an interesting aspect is the galaxy's broad outer spiral arms, made entirely of old stars. I like the satellite galaxy IC 783 some distance to the right of M100, which has such a bright and obvious nucleus and the barest hint of spiral arms. That's quite interesting in a small galaxy at the same distance from us as the large Messier galaxy. Another of my favorites in the menagerie of satellite galaxues is a fluffy, faint and very blue dwarf galaxy (PG 40045) located between M100 and IC 783.

Thank you, what a great image! :D

That's a lovely portrait of Caroline's Rose, which looks almost like a globular cluster in this image. Read more about it here.

Jaspal Chadha, your image is beautiful indeed!

Perseid meteor shower over Valais in Switzerland

Credits: Adrien Mauduit

The 2017 Perseid peaked on August 11th but the waning gibbous moon made it hard to see all the small meteorites. Only big ones were visible in the bright sky! I took the shot in the Valais area in Switzerland as I was on vacation with my family from 11:00 pm to 02:11 am (GMT + 1). It was a beautiful scenery and there was barely any light pollution whatsoever: a paradise to shoot pictures in. The mountains of the Valais offer beautiful places with tremendous wildlife and countless things to do. I recommend the place to all nature lovers.
The special shot is the close-upon the Scutum (shield) constellation moving behind the peaks. Can you spot the geostationary satellites as well? I used the Samyang 85 and 135mm to get these shots.

The Observing Field
Copyright: György Soponyai

The annual astro camp of Hungarian Astronomical Association is held in Gerecse Mountain near Tarján (~50km southwest from Budapest). Every year ~ 300-400 amateur astronomers come together for common sky-wathcing in a long weekend. This year some technical failures prevented me to complete my original photo plan so the second dawn I was just lurking on the observing field, watching into some telescopes, watching the crowd, the sky and I tried to compose them into a photo. This is the result:

One of the most beautiful parts of the Milky Way! Even on this focal length is already possible to distinguish nebulae M16 and M17!
