The Silent Route

Image

The A-1702 in Teruel, Spain, is known as "The silent route" . There are 63 kilometers of incredible landscapes for the delight of the eyes, to enjoy doing "slow driving". Sometimes we will find landscapes straight out of a western movie. It is not surprising, since the geology of this place is similar to what we will find in the State of Utah.

Millions of years ago, when there was only one continent called Pangea, this place and Utah occupied the same place. The rocks and fossils found on both sides of the Atlantic prove it.

At kilometer 17,300 we find a very peculiar viewpoint with a mountain goat state and spectacular views. From the first moment I visited it, I imagined the view of the Milky Way from here and several years later I was able to make the dream photograph come true. A meteor was also captured in one of the stacked photographs since we were in the Perseid days.

Be very careful if you plan to visit the site at night as there are many scorpions in the area, do not leave bags on the ground!

Hi everyone,

Here is a picture of the Perseids 2023 from the city of Marseille, France.
It's a composite with a total exposure of 56 mn, taken with a Sony a7s + 24mm 1.4.
I was in a special place, a semaphore station built in 1863 to spot enemy ships and for communication.

Thanks for watching ;)

A Season of Saturn
Andy Casely

Image

A sequence of images taken over the course of nearly one Saturnian season between 2018 and 2023 (upper left to lower right), one image every year for six Earth years. It goes from midsummer to nearly the autumn equinox in Saturn's northern hemisphere, and the rings tilt from widest open to be approaching edge-on as seen from Earth and Sun.

A large storm is visible in 2018, and in 2023 we now see some transits of Saturn's icy moons - Tethys is transiting with its shadow. The polar hexagon fades from view under high latitude hazes, and Saturn's cold blue south pole emerges from a decade of winter darkness.

Location: Sydney, NSW, Australia
Dates: 22nd June 2018 to 1st May 2023, one image per year
Equipment: Celestron C14 Schmidt-Cassegrain, ZWO ASI290MM & QHY5III200M cameras, RGB filters, standard lucky imaging video capture process with Firecapture, stacking and processing in Autostakkert, Registax and WinJupos, ~15-35min per capture.

Astro Fest

The Perseids are considered to be one of the best meteor showers of the year. 90 meteors per hour is a celestial heaven under the dark sky on a moonless night. This year, the display of Perseid meteor shower at Joshua Tree National Park proved to be truly awe-inspiring. The sheer number of people that gathered to watch the event is a testament to growing trend of astro tourism.

I usually seek out secluded spots and never had the slightest idea that Joshua Tree national park attracts significant number of nocturnal tourists. As the darkness engulfed the night sky and Milky Way took the center stage, I could hear screams of “wow” echoing through the air whenever the shooting stars streaked across the sky. And there was also occasional cry of “No lights please” from those determined to get a perfect shot.

I was upset in the beginning by the prospect of not getting any clear shots but then I realized it’s probably a good thing that a lot of people are embracing the night sky. I begin to think of our place in nature and how the definition of nature itself has changed in modern times and what it means to different people. There were people who just wanted to be under the stars and appreciate the beauty of the celestial brilliance and there were others with purpose of getting a shot. In essence, nature has a place for everyone’s inclinations and aspirations.

Post Processing: Panoramic stitch of 18 vertical images of exposure 13s at f2.8; ISO 6400.

Summer Milkyway Mosaic
Milky Way Mosaic Masterpiece from Al Sadeem Observatory, Abu Dhabi, UAE

From the silent vastness of Abu Dhabi's deserts, beneath the whispering sands and ancient skies, emerges a celestial tapestry unparalleled in its splendor. This intricate Milky Way mosaic, captured over two laborious months at the renowned Al Sadeem Observatory, is not just an image—it's an odyssey of stardust and dreams.

Spanning the vibrant expanse from the enigmatic rho Ophiuchi cloud complex to the majestic realms of Cygnus, this masterpiece is the result of unwavering dedication. It brings together the prowess of four distinct cameras, each capturing nuances of the cosmos with delicate precision, and the might of four telescopes and lenses, diligently gazing upwards, collating whispers from the universe. With over 50 hours of detailed data, every speck of light, every swirling nebula, and every distant star tells its own millennia-old story.

As your eyes traverse this panoramic expanse, you're not just witnessing a section of our galaxy; you're journeying across eons of cosmic history. From the bright, bustling stellar nurseries of rho Ophiuchi, where stars are birthed in dramatic displays of color, to the sprawling, winged silhouette of Cygnus, where stars end their tales in spectacular supernovae, every inch of this mosaic is a tribute to the ineffable beauty of the universe.

The Witch and the Galaxy (NGC7013, Cygnus)

Post by Dan Israel » Fri Aug 25, 2023 9:06 am

Close to the popular Veil Nebula, NGC7013 is a rarely imaged lenticular galaxy in Cygnus of the LINER type, about 40 millions l.y. away from us. This image is centered on a faint reflection nebula, that looks a bit like the Witch Head Nebula of Orion, and seems to be about to swallow the galaxy.

Image acquired on August 21 from my light-polluted Bortle 7 backyard near Paris with a home-made carbon 8" f/4 Newtonian astrograph with optics from Romano Zen on an Astro-Physics AP900 mount, with a 2.5" Wynne corrector, a ZWO ASI183mm monochrome camera and LRGB filters. 240 *60sec for the luminance data and 30*20sec for R, G and B filters. Preprocessing and stack with Siril, processing with Pixinsight.

Over the span of 11 years, the Sun’s activity waxes and wanes as magnetic field lines that are wound and tangled inside the Sun periodically break through to the surface. These breakthroughs produce a pair of sunspots of opposite magnetic polarity, one positive and the other negative, that travel together across the face of the Sun.

The heightened magnetic activity associated with sunspots can lead to solar flares, coronal mass ejections, and other far-reaching electromagnetic phenomena that endanger astronauts and damage or disrupt satellites.

(From Nasa EarthObservatory web site)

Set of pictures explained:
I am very proud of these images because I am using for the very first time a new processing technique that has been taught to me by a colleague from my local astronomy association in Spain, "Agrupacion Astronómica Madrid Sur", Mr. Javier "Mintaka", and because of the rather modest PST40 telescope used to capture it.

It is based on partial inversion of the contrast published by several authors, one of them Michael H.F. Wilkinson mentioned on Filip Szczerek's Impgg software web page (https://greatattract...ithub.io/imppg/).

Capture and processing details:
Telescope Coronado PST40, camera ASI 178MM, captured with ASICap 2.9.1, 4000 frames SER video @36fps (16bit), processed with Autostakkert 3.1.4, ImPPG 1.9.1-beta and PixInsight 1.8 Ripley. Taken on 22/aug/2023 from the province of Soria, Spain, at an height 1100 mts ASML. A Barlow x2 lens have been used for the detailed images.

The Wizard Nebula - NGC 7380 by Ali Alobaidly (Instagram: AstraPharma_Q8)

Title: History in data.

Description:
Looking for a starry spectacle that's out of this world? Say hello to NGC 7380, the celestial cotton candy of the cosmos! Nicknamed the "Wizard Nebula" for its uncanny resemblance to a magician's hat, this star formation region was discovered by Caroline Herschel in 1787, the sister of the great William Herschel himself. Fun fact, the first woman to receive a salary for her contribution to science was the discoverer of this very target! The King of England gave her 50 pounds per year, and a great voyage for science started thereafter. So grab your cameras and start imaging, the sky is rich in both data and history. Who needs a wand when you've got a telescope?

Hello everyone, and here we are! All done. I present you my mosaic (7 panels) of the Cygne laces (IC1340+IC6960+IC6874). I had a bit of trouble finding the little extensions at the bottom, and was missing a little sky background at bottom left (long live clonestamp). This supernova afterglow is so large that even with a full-frame sensor, it barely fits... There are 2h30 (50x180s) of integration time per panel. So we have the equivalent of 2h30 of total integration time, even if it took me much longer to take this photo. This is a pure RGB version. There are no filters, which was made possible by the almost complete absence of moonlight over the last few days. At two panels a night, it took 4 nights to make this photo plus half a day of processing. Setup: Askar FRA 500 refractor, ZWO ASI 2600 MC Pro camera, Celestron mount, ZWO ASI 120 MM parallel guide, NINA sequencer, PegasusAstro focus engine, Siril pre-processing, PixInsight processing, Luminar Neo post-processing. The full jpeg is nearly 100 MB and can be viewed on my astrobin page (https://www.astrobin.com/full/dcyxvq/B/)
Thanks for your comments

M27, THE DUMBBELL NEBULA

Messier 27, also known as "The Dumbbell Nebula", is a cloud of gas ionized by the white dwarf that is in his core. Located more than 1300 light years away from us in the constellation of Vulpecula was the first nebula of this type to be discovered in 1764 by Charles Messier. His brightness makes m27 a popular target for astrophotographers and observers.
