The Comet, the Bear and the Gorge!

The day before yesterday I've managed to make an image I've been anticipating for quite some time now at the gorge of Vikos which according to the Guinness records book is the deepest on the planet if you measure the analogy of the width to the depth.

I was thinking to artistically re-name the comet to VikoWise since the appearance right at the centre of the gorge appeared to be a cosmic alignment or as if the Earth ripped itself anticipating this magnificent comet from the sky. The comet still appears big and bright in the sky but the Moon will definitely cover much of it's tail the upcoming days. The timing was very important for this image to be able and happen since the 20.2% crescent moon was bright enough to lit the gorge and provide perfect lighting but also not too bright to hide the beautiful comet's tail!

So we have a Giant from the sky that meets the deepest gorge on our planet in a unique and remarkable view. For your info, the Vikos gorge is found in North-Western Greece near the city of Ioannina and it's a very famous touristic destination but only in the daytime. I had to stay there almost for the full night and withstand 75km/h winds plus some wildlife nearby like bears, wolfs, and jackals.

I have been imaging the comet almost on every opportunity until two nights ago and now I believe the moon will hide the tail for some time. Hopefully once the new moon comes, we will be able and have a good view of this magnificent astronomical object!

Kind regards

Welcome to Starship Asterisk*. mmamtani! That's a very nice image showing the Big Dipper, too! And I have to wonder, is that Jupiter?

Love that photo and all the colors. We can see the green coma of the comet, the blue ion tail, the colorless dust tail and, I guess, the yellow-orange color of the sodium tail.

The Devil's Den - Wiltshire - UK

A rarely visited and photographed 5,000 year old Neolithic passage grave, in-between Avebury Stone Circle and Stonehenge.

The burial chamber stands upon a low mound that was originally part of a long barrow and is extremely difficult to find, sitting within the middle of a stretch of fields with no near by road access. The head stone is believed to weigh between 17 and 18 metric tonnes. I believe this to be one of a handful of night photo's of the site.

According to local tradition “if water is poured into the hollows on the capstone, a demon will come along in the night and drink it.” - it had been raining all day and I didn't hang round to find out :shock: :lol2:

Picture Details:
Taken: 28th July - 00:19am
Camera: Cannon EOS Ra
Lens: Samyang 20mm F1.8
ISO: 6400
Shutter Speed: 20s
3 images stacked in Sequator for the milky way, same three images stacked in Photoshop for foreground - blended in photoshop and touched up in Lightroom.

This is definitely worth a visit if you are ever in the area, although I strongly recommend a day time visit, ideally with a compass and ordnance map, it's located just outside a small village called Fyfield near Avebury Stone Circle. Be prepared for a 20-30 minute walk through overgrown fields.

Coordinates for anyone interested: 51°25'32.7"N 1°46'57.9"W

TRIFID NEBULA IN HUBBLE PALETTE

It is situated approximately 5,200 light-years from Earth with an apparent magnitude of 6.3.
Complex nebula composed of an emission nebula (the bottom, red, a reflection nebula (the top, blue) and a dark nebula (apparent "gaps" in the emission nebula, which cause the trifurcarda appearance, these are also designated as Barnard 85).

Constallation of Cygnus, photogaphed in the suburbs of Switzerlands Capital (Berne) with an Lumicon H-Alpha front filter from the old film days (July 12, 2020). The image shows many famous objects glowing in H-Alpha light, f. ex. (from left to right):
Cocoon Nebula (IC 5146), North America Nebula (NGC 7000), Pelican Nebula (IC 5070), Butterfly Nebula (IC 1318), Crescent Nebula (NGC 6888), Veil Nebula (NGC 6960 und 6992) and Dumbbell Nebula (M 27)

C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE)
Various details are appreciated.

https://alfredomadrigal.com/deep-sky/c-2020-f3-neowise/


1. The nucleus formed by dust, rock, ice and organic materials.
2. The "Coma" is the nebulous region, made up of dust and ice that surrounds the nucleus reaching an enormous diameter (it would be necessary to look for the data)
3. The "tail" caused by volatilizing materials from the core surface. We have the gas (ionic) glue and the powder glue. The gas path follows the path provided by the "solar wind". Dust is generated due to the movement of the comet along its path.

Data:13/07/2020
Location: Mirador Tío Cogote. Serranía de Cuenca (Starlight space) Spain
Technical data: 20x90s photographs on nikon D750, iso3200 on Astrotrac and Nikon 80-200 @ 200mm f2.8 lens
Processed: DeepSkyStacker, Pixinsight, Lightoom and Photoshop.

Until the last few nights, the scattered sunlight from the dust in the coma largely overwhelmed any cyanogen glow. As the comet pulls away from the Sun, however, that glow is now dominating the coma.

This is a 21 arcmin wide field. Shot with a QSI660 on an RC10. 15 x 60s R, 15 x 60s G, 15 x 60s B.
