Explanation: Brilliant Perseid fireballs captured on 12 of August 2018 at 21:55 UT over Bieszczady mountains in Poland. This particular place is considered without doubts as the darkest site in Poland. Particularly bright event (-8 mag) that displayed near zenith.

52x30 second exposures at ISO 3200, full-frame DSLR camera with 14 mm lens @ F/2.8.

"The greatest show"

On the night of August 11th I climbed up to a mountain hut in the French Alps. It took me about 7-8 hours to get to the hut with all my photography gear. I had planned this shot for a more than 2 years.

As you can see in the photo, The Perseids fly over the sky with the presence of Mars and Saturn. Also, you can see the highest mountain in the European Union, the always magnificent Mont Blanc, in the French Alps.
Surrounded by two glaciers that converge a bit further down, you can see both of them in the image, the Mer de Glace which flows for a total distance of 12 kilometres, covering an area of 32 square kilometres in the central third of the Mont Blanc massif. On the left hand side you can spot the Leschaux Glacier and its hut (the light just next to the glacier).
In addition, if you take a deeper look, just below the Grandes Jorasses mountain range you will be able to see climbers trying to summit the mountain with the first lights (you can see their headlamps).
As always, we were gifted with an spectacular perseids show at almost 3000m high.

Dust coming down, details showing!

Post by astroavani » Sun Aug 26, 2018 1:14 am

Now that our red neighbor is retreating, the storm is dwindling and the details are coming, pity that the apparent diameter is rapidly diminishing as the phase progresses.
Despite the difficulties, this is the right time to get great photos in the visible and infrared wavelengths (photos below).
Syrtis Major and Hellas stand out in the foreground in this image, but many formations have become visible.

Hi Ann!

Of course I do have...don't know why that img2 does not work, always just get those thumbnails, preview as well as image itself
which actually is linked to a much, much bigger version. Edited and tried different settings, still just a thumbnail preview, but now
you do get a bigger image linked.

;-)

At Astrobin, there is a share button with the option to set to "forums", and image size to "full" with "yes" on thumbnail. The code it generates will do this:

Maybe because the image you are linking to IS a thumbnail image

I‘ve done that, my thumbnail opens already to a larger version, but my preview window is far smaller than those of the other posts here.

I don't think you understand. If I plug the url above directly into my browser, I get exactly the thumbnail shown,
