Stacking and processing of 31 shots of the F3 Neowise from last July 22 from our HYPARCO Observatory in Andorra (Teruel)
At that time and according to Stellarium, the Comet had a magnitude of 4.1 (absolute 7.50) and was at a distance from the Sun of 0.627 AU (93.802 M Km).
With about 10 km of core diameter, the Coma was about 331,000 km in diameter and a length of the gas trail of about 3.54 M km.
Image data:
QHY168c camera with IR / UV filter and OMEGON Graphite 126 / 880mm on EQ8.
10 fr of 60sg at Gain 11 and Off 6 and 21 fr of 30 sg at equal G and Off
Stacked and processed with PixInsight 1.8.5

I can't insert an image :cry:

You can see it on Flickr https://flic.kr/p/2jrf6jp

Comet NEOWISE and Airglow from Craters of the Moon National Monument
www.mattdieterich.com
Copyright: Matt Dieterich I captured this stack of 15 x 1 minute photos of Comet NEOWISE from Craters of the Moon National Monument. The skies were dark and filled with amazing green airglow! I used a Nikon D850 and 70-200mm lens with a Radian tripod and Skywatcher tracker to keep the stars pinpoint.

Hi,

Here is my Andromeda Galaxy M31.

Full here : https://flic.kr/p/2jryTk6

14h de poses during 5 nights :
- 130x5’ with L-Pro Bortle 6
- 250x60’ with L-Pro Bortle 6
- 75x120’ Bortle 4
- 60x180’ with L-Enhance Bortle 6
- 25x240' with L-Pro Bortle 6
- 45x240’ with L-Enhance Bortle 6

The idea was to get H-Alpha parts with L-Enhance filter.

I'm really proud to get this with just an EQ3-2 mount without guiding !*

Jupiter and Moon conjuntion on 1st August 2020.
In the image you can see Jupiter with 3 moons ( Europa , Ganimedes and Calisto from more close to more far away)
The cloud give a nice light to this view.

Hope you like it

From my description on AstroBin: "I rarely see people taking narrowband data of comets, so I thought that was interesting. You can see both tails in the narrowband only image (B) are mostly green indicating hydrogen signal but the comet head is purple indicating a combination of sulphur and oxygen and the gases right behind are cyan indicating some combination of hydrogen and oxygen. The LRGB image (C) on the other hand shows the typical green halo of comets that's due to the presence of carbon. There's some internal structure to the body (i.e., the actual ball of rock and ice is clearly distinguishable). Finally the different sets of images combine to make one that is clearly brighter/better in my opinion even though I have a soft spot for the narrowband only image. That said, having processed my very first comet, I do wish I had spent more time capturing additional data."

As always, thanks for looking!

This was taken from my backyard in Brisbane, AUS during the Lunar Eclipse in July 2018. I used a Nikon D7100 and attached it to a 10" Newtonian which was sitting atop of an NEQ6 Pro mount. I took a shot every 5 mins with varying exposures at the telescopes native f4.8.

4 of the images at the 7-9 o'clock position are composites of 2 images to bring about more detail.

I give public license to this image, do what you will with it.

Moon and Jupiter conjunction
https://stefanoderosa.com/
Copyright: Stefano De Rosa The image, taken during the night of August 1, 2020, shows the conjunction between an almost full Moon, surrounded by a beautiful corona, and the superbright Jupiter netx to the the temple section of the Mole Antonellian, a 167.5 high monument considered as the symbol of Turin, that houses the National Museum of Cinema and was the inspiration for the official emblem of the 2006 Winter Olympics.

The moon is usually seen in subtle shades of gray or yellow.
The different colors 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.
White areas are taller areas that are most exposed to the sun.
Trips to the moon have already been indicated by similar images.
Made with saturation technique, moon in color.
