I had just caught the comet as it flew by HDW2. The comet image exposed for only 30 minutes, where nothing of HDW2 can be seen, of course. The following image is a composit:

Galaxy of andromeda (M31)
Image made with the camera + lens.

M31 is located in the constellation of Andromeda and is best observed in November. Galaxy can be seen with the naked eye. Because it is so easily observed in the night sky, it is impossible to tell who discovered the Andromeda galaxy. However, the book of fixed stars of the Persian astronomer Abd al-rahman al-Sufi of 964 contains the first known report of the object.

VEIL NEBULA
Veil Nebula, is one of the best-known remnants of supernova, deriving its name from its delicate filamentary structures. The nebula, the size of six moons full in the sky, looks like Earth, and is about 2,100 light-years away in the constellation Swan.

Small Magellanic Clouds

Image taken at the meeting in munhoz, I was impressed how beautiful it is in the visual, incredible thing.

SMC is one of the galaxies closest to our Milky Way,
In the upper left corner is the globular cluster 47 Tucanae, belonging to via lactea. In the image it is still observed presence of other agglomerates.

Colourful storm
Copyright: Pavel Váňa
Website: www.pavel-vana.cz
Description:
This photo describes what my first night in Utah looked like. Just one hour before it was stormy and I did not believe that I can see anything, but...
This was the night of Perseids and I have to say that I have never seen that much meteors like that night. It was just awesome!
I love night sky pics, but they cannot contain the feelings of the photographer even what was happening during that night...there were no sounds, I saw tenths of meteors, I was surrounded by thunderstorms, first nice structures of airglow I have ever seen...There were too much things that night.
And this is why I love astrophotography!

Airglow, Mars and Milky Way at the Col du Lautaret
Website : http://maximeoudouxphotographie.fr/
Copyright : Maxime Oudoux

Description :

It's a very special atmosphere to live, when you're alone, at 2:30 AM, in the mountains, to see huge silent flashes (heat lightening) reveal the huge mountains around you. There was no moon, everything was (very) dark and peaceful!

However, the night show was at the rendezvous at the Col du Lautaret, in the french Alps : Mars (in the left of the Meije massif) was incredibly orange in the naked eye, because of the diffusion of its light in the clouds. Behind the massif, lightning flashed at a very high rate (1/2 every 5s or even more sometimes).
The light pollution of cities and Grenoble on the horizon, rather present, contrasts with this very present airglow, formed in bands crossing the sky from one side to the other.

The Milky Way here is not in its best shape and colors : more discreet (the most photogenic part is behind the massif of Meije), with less "flashy" colors, caused by the ambient humidity.
At the top right, the blue star is Vega.

This image, with a "soft and sleek" atmosphere, has been processed and stitched in a great respect of the reality at the level of the colors and ambient lights.

30 images panoramic
2 different exposure time to reveal the floor (no moon, it was really dark), taken at the same place, same time, same gear

MOON 95.1%
The same moon posted earlier but now with color camera, performed the same day, in a few moments, even filter.

They changed the position of the camera and also the camera, as I said, a color camera, I preferred not to do the image rotation because I liked this angle more. The most difficult is for full moon images, without mosaic, and 'hit the whole moon gain, so that some region does not make a profit like Copernicus.

The colors indicate the concentration of minerals on the moon, not just illustrative. more colored, indicating a basal lava concentration.

What will look like the sun in approximately 4 billion years?

Very certainly in this photo. When the sun will have consumed all its hydrogen and helium, its outer layers will then be expelled in the space in the form of a gaseous bubble. There will be then a Sun only a white dwarf.

Here Messier 27 ( 1200 AL), where we can already see at work the physical processes of the death of a star, allows us to admire this floodlit bubble of gas (ionized) by the ultraviolet radiation of the white dwarf whom we can perceive in the center of the nebula.

I want to specify that colors are real, and the scientific explanation of which here is for the most curious according to the site www.astropolis.fr
This absorbs the non-visible high energy radiation of the electromagnetic spectrum emitted by the star (dwarf), and redistributes or reflects this light in the visible part of the spectrum, revealing it to our eyes as earthlings ... Most of this visible light being emitted in a single spectral line corresponding to 5 007 Angstrom, namely the green light, as is the case for the majority of planetary nebulae.
