Title: "From Cassiopea to Sagittarius"

- Equipment used: Nikon D750, Carl zeiss 135mm Apo Sonnar ZF, Skywatcher Star Adventurer, Optlong L-Pro Filter

- Imaging target and time: Photomerge of 43 panels :D

- Briefly describe your photo, location of the photography included: This image have been taken in Otranto from June to September 2018. I have used Skywatcher Star Adventurer astro tracker with Optolong L-Pro filter for reduce light pollution. The sky is composed by 43 mosaic panels captured with Carl Zeiss 135mm Apo Sonnar ZF telephoto at f/4 ISO 1600 and 120” seconds of exposure for each image. Each panel Is ccomposed of 20 light frames and 5 darks.

- Digital processing methods employed: Why I use telephoto lens for capture milky way? Because a telephoto give to my milky way image extraordinary details and 3D image depht. The colors of the nebulae are not altered or added because my Nikon D750 lacks the infrared filter and therefore sensitive to the full spectrum of visible light. The entire mosaic Is a work of hundreds hours of Digital workflow in Adobe Photoshop with help of my Astro Panel.

It's a lovely picture, but I couldn't really enlarge it, just make it wider. Is it supposed to get bigger?

But the original Image Is more bigger than this...about 65000 pixel wider :mrgreen:

ISS over the French Alps

It's always magical to see and photograph the ISS, mainly over moutains in winter.
The scene, which took place on January 30 at 7:08 pm, was worth climbing a bit to grab it.

The International Space Station has crossed the sky from west to east, with an intense white glow of its own.
At the moment of passing "in" the Ursa Major constellation, the ISS has passed into the shadow of the Earth: note the change of color of its luminous path, from white to orange. For the astronauts on board, they saw a sunset.

In the center of the image (top), the Polar Star shines a little isolated from other luminous stars. The image is oriented perfectly to the North.

On the ground, Mount Pelvoux (left), Pointe des Arcas (center left, bottom) and the trio of the Cime Condamine / Head Lauzières / Tête d'Amont (center right and right) share the landscape in the background, all lit by Vallouise, the village in the valley floor.

The Owl Cluster NGC 457

NGC 457, sometimes called the Owl Cluster or ET Cluster after the famous movie, is an open cluster in the constellation Cassiopeia. The cluster was discovered by William Hershel in 1787. The distance is not known with certainty, but is probably is between 2000 and 10,400 light-years away. The image was taken with an SBIG STF8300m camera and a RCOS 12.5” f/9 astrograph at f/6 (Astro-Physics CCDT67) on a Paramount ME in Mayhill, NM on 13 Dec 2018. Image was a total of 3 hours exposure (3 x 1200 sec @ -15 degrees C in R, G, and B filters (SBIG), 24 darks, 128 bias, 128 flats in R, G, and B) Processed in PixInsight 1.8.6.1457 Ripley (x64) using a Synthetic Luminance and Photometric Color Calibration.

I took this image during the August 2017 solar eclipse in Huntington, Oregon with a DSLR and an 80mm refractor. The image is a single exposure, and I feel that it does a good job of highlighting the deep hydrogen-alpha red color of solar prominences set against the dark lunar disk and sky.

I was looking through the archives, and didn't see any pictures similar to mine so I figured I would submit it! This is my first time submitting an image, so if you have any feedback that would be much appreciated

Thank you, Freddyuniverse, your Mouldy Strawberry Nebula portraits are very beautiful! :D By the way, the bright blue star in your pictures is Bellatrix in Orion, and the large red nebula at left is the Lambda Orionis Nebula.

Hello
I submit you this Tycho's picture.
Very little time in a life the sky allows in the Rhône valley in France to exploit almost fully the capabilities of large telescopes like my newton 24" that I built. It lasted 20 minutes on the night of February 15. I was able to image some craters like Tycho in high resolution. The focal length used is 10920 mm (barlow 4), red filter 610, camera QHY5-III 178M, original at 120% image to better see the details.

Thanks Ann, they are Bellatrix and Lambda Orionis, but do not tell me that you are not a little afraid of the ghost (SH2 265) that runs between Bellatrix and the Strawberry Nebula... :ohno: :ohno:
