Copernicus (lunar crater) - FALSE COLOR
Copernicus (lunar crater) - A Deeper Study

Copernicus was a Polish astronomer who fought geocentrism, placing the Sun at the center of the universe with Earth and the planets spinning around it. He removed the earth from the center of the universe.
COPERNICUS is one of the moon's most spectacular craters, with a large extension (93 km), just 3.8 km deep, with a sharp edge and well positioned for a good view of your floor using small telescopes. It is also surrounded by a complex lightning system from the debris ejected by the enormous impact that created COPERNICUS, mainly due to its “young” age of approximately 800 million years. What catches the eye is its difference in composition.

The moon is usually seen in subtle shades of gray or yellow.

The different colors made with the renowned false color technique known by nasa (https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/spaceimages/de ... d=PIA00132), , are recognized to correspond to actual differences in the chemical composition of the lunar surface. Blue hues reveal areas rich in ilmenite, which contains iron, titanium and oxygen, mainly titanium, while orange and purple show relatively poor titanium and iron regions.

Copernicus (lunar crater) in INVERTER COLOR

Copernicus was a Polish astronomer who fought geocentrism, placing the Sun at the center of the universe with Earth and the planets spinning around it. He removed the earth from the center of the universe.

COPERNICUS is one of the moon's most spectacular craters, with a large extension (93 km), just 3.8 km deep, with a sharp edge and well positioned for a good view of your floor using small telescopes. It is also surrounded by a complex lightning system from the debris ejected by the enormous impact that created COPERNICUS, mainly due to its “young” age of approximately 800 million years. What catches the eye is its difference in composition.

A reverse color technique was performed to show in more detail the composition difference, the image is with better observational value, without scientific value.

Moon-Pong-Alps-Trees-France.jpg
The Moon as seen from Mount Benand in the Alps this Winter. After a night chasing the Milky Way and composing with trees and snow, I came across this perspective while on my way back to my car. It reminded me of the game Pong that I use to play when I was younger and thought this would be an original image.

Holding Jupiter
www.rafaeldefavari.com

The source of light in my hand is nothing but the most massive planet in our Solar System: Jupiter.

No artificial light was used, and the image is the result of a single 30s exposure. There was no one around at the time, so I had to "shoot - run - align - freeze - check - run and align again" for a while to achieve this composition. I have also made a mini video showing all the trials and errors that I will upload in the comments below.

Saturn is the other brightest spot just above the Milky Way in the center of the image.

EXIF: Canon 6D, 15mm, f2.8, 30s, ISO6400.

Fireball
Copyright: György Soponyai

After the first night of the annular astro camp of Hungarian Astronomical Association, on the morning of 26th July 2019 I wrote the following post about my experiences:

The most beautiful, brightest, most spectacular fireball of my life so far! My first fireball that was PERFECTLY visible with 8mm fisheye lens. Composing that into an all-sky startrail photo -- this might have been THE PICTURE I'm dreaming about for years..
I finished my photo session when the Moon rose and reviewed the raw photos. Wonderful! I captured the screen of the camera with my phone and send it to home: "Look! Look at it! I think I've done IT at last!"
I immediately wanted to start the photo-processing but when I pulled the memory card out of the camera it became unreadable and corrupt. Been using it for three years it died! Raw photos of four nights of the one-week-long trip in France? Solar "dots" of my almost complete fourth analemma? My once in a lifetime fireball photo? All of them were taken to the grave..
The following hours I spent trying lots of data restoring tricks, softwares and black magics without success. *%/%!!%/(%/ (rude cursing censored)


The startrail photo was recaptured the next night using my spare memory card, the lack of two "dots" on the analemma-curve might be not so prominent (you will see it in middle of September, prepare your eyes! ;-) ). My new passion besides nightscape photography is painting with oil pastels. I consider a challenge to paint the french experiences -- and finally this fireball scene. Here is the result!

Milky Way

Several trips driving over 200km, with over 70 kilograms of equipment, with an average utilization of 40% of the nights, waiting for a single moment, this reminds me of Olavo Bilac poem in which a part says:

And I will tell you, “Love to understand them!
For only those who love may have heard
Able to hear and understand stars. ”
