The lunar dance in 30 days
https://tripswithrosie.com/
Copyright: Rositsa Dimitrova
THIS is how the Moon moves throughout a full lunar cycle and it "only" took 7 months to shoot it.

I'm currently shooting a solar analemma, so a few months back I started wondering how the path of Moon would look like for a single lunar cycle. I'd seen many lunar panoramas that were completely unrealistic and I really wanted to create a realistic one. I started shooting the different phases of the Moon, but due to cloudy days it took me solid 7 months to do it.

Afterwards, I used Stellarium to check the coordinates of the Moon in the sky for each day - from February 8th to March 8th 2020 (for location: Bulgaria) adjusted by 51 minutes (which is the average time between moonrises every day). I also took into account the inclination of the Moon on that exact date and time. I managed to translate these Stellarium calculations into Photoshop, as I wanted the positions to be as precise as possible.

Shot on Sony A7iii, Sigma 100-400mm (lunar phases) + Sony 28mm (foreground & sky)

NGC 281 - The Pacman Nebula
Emission Nebula imaged in SHO palette. Constellation Cassiopeia.
There's a lot of integration time in this image.
I got nearly 100 subs for Ha and O3, and 50 subs for S2. Every sub is 10 minutes, O3 and S2 are binned 2x2.
That's a total integration time of over 40 hours.
Imaged in multiple nights in August and November 2020 from the city of Linz, Austria.

Hope you like it, this is the most integration time I gathered for one image till now.
Clear skies!

ISS and SpaceX Crew-1
https://www.youtube.com/messierhunter
Copyright: Scott Ferguson Equipment: 8" Meade LX200 Classic @ f/20 (2x barlow)

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

Samsung SCB-2000 and 55mm lens (viewfinder camera for optical tracking corrections)

ISS and Resilience recorded on 11-18-2020, tracked by my open source SatTraker software (https://github.com/AstronomyLiveYt/SatTraker ). This is a single frame recorded from a 78 degree high pass that flew by Jupiter as ISS rose (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UL0y4ZF-8c ). Captured with an 8" Meade LX200 Classic in alt/az mode @ f/20 with a 2x barlow. The frame was recorded by a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K with a 1/500s exposure at ISO 25600. The video was processed in Davinci Resolve using temporal noise reduction set to 5 frames with "better" motion estimation with 100% stength on both luma and chroma channels. Spatial noise reduction was set to 20% in the luma channel and 100% in the chroma channel. Color saturation was set to 85 and a very slight single point downward bend was applied to the curves adjustment. This frame was then exported and loaded into GIMP. I then sharpened the frame using unsharp mask in GIMP (radius 3.8, amount 0.2), cropped a 1920x1080 area around ISS from the original image size of 3840x2160, and exported it.

For the rest of the video linked above, I passed the video through a frame stabilization program I wrote in Python which centers each frame on ISS based on the center of mass of the contour of ISS above a minimum brightness level. It also rejected frames where the center of ISS was farther than 80% of the radius to an edge of the frame (to eliminate frames with ISS partially off the sensor). It also performed a frame quality estimation based on the total area of ISS within the image and rejected frames where the total area was greater than the mean of a 0.5 second rolling average of area (to reduce frames where ISS was smeared by bad seeing or motor vibrations). Acceptable frames were saved to an MP4 file and included in the video with no further alterations.
