Both your images are beautiful, but the top one looks like a dream vision. The Moon looks like a thin sliver without substance, a luminous crescent of light that has disentangled itself from its material moorings.

It's not only beautiful, it's magical.

Thank you, Ann! Every time we are looking to the universe is like a dream, don't you think? :)

NGC 7789, AN OPEN CLUSTER IN CASSIOPEIA

NGC 7789 is an open cluster found in the constellation Cassiopeia. The cluster was discovered by Caroline Herschel in 1783, and is estimated to be 6,000 light-years away. The exposure was a total of 4 hours exposure taken with a Takahashi CCA-250 f/5 astrograph with a QSI683wsg CCD camera (Astrodon Gen 2 filters) on a Paramount ME in Mayhill, NM on the nights of 22, 25 Oct. 2019 (4 X1200 sec @ -20 degrees C. lights though R, G, and B filters, respectively; 24 darks; 128 bias; 128 flats for R, G, and B, respectively). Processed with PixInsight 1.8.8-3 Ripley (X64) using the Weighted Batch Preprocessing Script. Deconvolution performed on a synthetic light.

Space Station as it passes through the constellation Orion seen from El Paso, island of La Palma. On Friday, January 17 at about 19.39 hours we could see the Space Station (ISS) crossing the sky of La Palma from the Southwest to the Northeast. The image is composed of two photos to record two different strokes of the ISS. It is taken from the Visitor Center of the Caldera de Taburiente National Park. Photo taken with Alfa58 SLR camera, f / 2.8, 17mm, 15s exposure, 1000 Iso. A diffuser, tripod and trigger cable were used.

ngc6888, the Crescent nebula in Cygnus

Image

Astrophotography from light polluted skies is hard, but it can be made good by shooting hours and hours in a permanent observatory at home.

This image emerges from more than 76 hours total exposure time! I hope you enyoy it.

This narrowband image renders the southeastern portion of the Large Magellanic Cloud’s supergiant shell LMC-4 in the Hubble Color Palette. Spanning 1583 lys on a side, the 32- by 32-arcmin field shows the frothy brownish (Ha, SII) superbubble NGC 2014, itself 650- by 325-lys in extent, that was blown by the massive stars of an OB-Association embedded within the bright nebula along its eastern edge. Wisps of blue trace OIII emission along its western edge. Roughly 100 lys to its east lies the reddish-blue Wolf-Rayet bubble, NGC 2020, whose bright oval-shaped inner ring spans 74 lys in its longest dimension. The bluish-white star-forming complex along the left edge of the frame encompasses NGC 2032, 2035 and 2040. The image was produced from 10-min exposures taken on November 24th and December 3rd by an FLI ProLine 16803 camera through SII, H-alpha and OIII filters at the Newtonian focus of Chilescope’s 0.5-m (f/3.8) Telescope 2. The data in each band were integrated for 1-hr. Processing was accomplished using CCDStack2 and Photoshop CC 2018. Additional 10-min exposures taken through broadband red, green and blue filters were used to produce naturally-colored stars, which were blended into the final image to replace its original falsely-colored stars. North is up, and East to the left.

More than 30 cometary globules (CG) have been found in the Gum Nebula since the late 1970’s that generally have dense, dusty heads and long faint tails pointing away from the center of the Vela OB2 association. The intricate structure evident in this Ha-enhanced RGB image of CG4, which probably originated from ablation of a relatively opaque neutral cloud by the fierce winds and radiation fields from that association’s massive stars, render it as one of the most striking examples. The serendipitous appearance of the nearly edge-on background galaxy ESO 257 – G019 (PGC 21338) pointing to a tight circlet of stars about 9-arcmin above the center of the globule’s head adds to the drama of the image, as does the presence of the bright star-forming cloud Sa 101 beneath the globule’s tail. Located in Puppis approximately 1300 lys away, the head of CG4 spans nearly 2.9 lys at its greatest projected width on the sky, and the emerging tail is another roughly 8 lys in length. East is up and north is to the right on this image whose overall field-of-view spans approximately a square-degree, corresponding to 23.3 lys on a side. The data were obtained by an FLI Proline 16803 CCD camera on Chilescope’s 0.5-m Telescope 2 (f/3.8) on the nights of March 30th and April 26th 2019. Unbinned data were collected at the Newtonian focus through Red, Green, Blue and H-alpha filters during 10-min exposures, which were integrated to form mean band images by CCDStack2 for either 40- mins (Red) or 50-min for each of the other channels. Subsequent processing was accomplished using Adobe Photoshop CC 2018.
