Between the Eagle and the Scorpion
Website : https://maximeoudouxphotographie.fr

The Milky Way has become a "must have" in pictures of the night sky; but what does it look like in more detail, especially at its galactic center, from Europe ?

This image, taken in August 2018 from the Col de Restefond in the Hautes Alpes (France) at more than 2800m above sea level, presents its portion between the constellation of Eagle (left) and Scorpion (right); the 2 constellations are barely visible for technical reasons and position: the Scorpion plunged under the horizon and the Eagle was out of range at the end of the night.

A multitude of celestial objects can be observed : Lagoon, Trifid, Omega, Eagle nabula (the 4 colored shapes towards the center-right), dark structures as the "E of Bernard" (lower left, above the blue star, which is Altaïr), globular clusters ... and even Saturn, next to the Lagoon nebula !
What strikes our mind here is the difference in color between the very colorful and luminous background of the Milky Way, composed of millions of stars in this place (very easily) and all these black areas, sprawling, like ink stains spilled on the bottom of the sky. The Milky Way is full of gas and dust: these are the elements that opacify our galaxy from our point of view.

On the technical side, this image is quite complex. It is composed of more than 60 photos taken in a different angle to recompose this extremely wide field, but particularly defined: I used the Samyang 135mm f/2 to have the ideal deal between definition of image and practical side.

The Robin's Egg Nebula

The Robin's Egg nebula (NGC1360) is a planetary nebula located around 1200-1700 light years from Earth.
A myriad of background galaxies of varying morphologies can be seen within the field with some being very distant and becoming red shifted. Interestingly there are what appears to be two jets emanating from either end of the nebula. One is very faint but the other can be clearly seen.

This is a superb image, with very fine details and simply stunningly beautiful colors.

Very nice and interesting picture. Thanks for processing it.

NGC 5398 is a fascinating galaxy. It has a yellow center and a bluish ring, and one huge and brilliant starburst region. Note the black dust lanes apparently feeding the starburst, and note the absence of major dust lanes elsewhere.

NGC 5398 is a small galaxy, whose luminosity is only about a tenth of the luminosity of the Milky Way. Much of the light from NGC 5398 seems to come from the starburst region, which is brighter than the yellow center and nucleus. NGC 5398 is a very blue and very ultraviolet galaxy, due to all the blue and ultraviolet radiation from the brilliant young hot stars.
