Rho Ophiuchi

Rho Ophiuchi region - in my opinion, one of the most beautiful objects in our sky - there is almost everything here, dust lit by various stars, hydrogen nebulae, and bright globular clusters. It's hard to find more beautiful object for DSLR astrophotography.

The frame was taken with Samyang 135m/2 lens and modded Nikon D610.
Acquisition Time: April of 2022
Location: Bieszczady Mountains in southern Poland

Inside the Coalsack in Crux - NGC 4609; Hogg 15 & RCW 69

There are many interesting objects within the Coalsack in Crux.Within the FOV in the image below we have NGC 4906 and Hogg 15, two small open clusters separated by 5,27 magnitude star SAO 252002 right in the centre of the image. Studies indicates that NGC 4609 (approximately 5000 light years away), is well beyond the Coalsack which is only 600 lights years from Earth.
Added a labeled image also to check RCW 69 and RCW 70

Cheers to all

The Tau Herculid meteor shower was a lovely one, but the real fireworks were on the ground!

In this composite image of 66 images (each 18 seconds long), an orange tau Herculid meteor streaks down from the vicinity of Arcturus. Bright knots in the meteor streak tell the story of the disintegrating meteoroid. In the far background, stars streak across the background, but it was a much closer phenomenon that stole the show: thousands of fireflies dancing in the warm summer night above a meadow of wildflowers.

These images was taken in Barnesville, Maryland on May 31, 2022 around 12:45 am.

The Beauty of Rho Ophiuchi

Post by Marcin7 » Tue May 31, 2022 3:20 pm

I do have a pleasure to present to you one of the most beautiful object in our night sky.🔭😀☄️ Rho Ophiuchi is embedded in the Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex, a large nebula of dust and gas which is one of the most colourful areas of our sky and a favourite target for many astrophotographers. The Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex is one of the nearest star forming regions to the Sun. It lies at a distance of about 427 light years from the Earth.

I have taken this photo in Tenerife island in Teide National Park at the end of April this year and I need to say astrophotography conditions in Teide Park is really excellent. 😀 The darkest sky I have seen so far.🔭😀🔭

NGC 6188 The fighting Dragons of Ara ... cMNONP.jpg


Dual Narrowband with RGB stars.

Full resolution and aquisition details on:

Shot on April 16, 2022 and May 28, 2022, for a total integration time of 13h 54', using a OSC camera and a dual narrowband filter. Location: Aguas da Prata, São Paulo, Brazil.

NGC 6188, and its companions, NGC 6193, NGC 6164 and NGC 6165 form a truly wonderful region in the Ara constellation, a jewel of the southern skies. Nicknamed "The fighting Dragons of Ara", this emission nebula is situated in about 4000 light-years away from us. I framed the target in an 30 degree angle as to add some dynamic to the composition. Although called the Fighting Dragons of Ara, this object in fact remind me of two lions fighting, the one on the right winning over the left one.
