Halo over the Sleeping City
Copyright: György Soponyai

One day after the first Lunar Eclipse of the year, the still-almost-full Moon surrounded by a wonderful halo was passing the meridian shortly after midnight. This photo was taken by standing on the middle of Margaret Bridge. Facing south the banks of river Danube (UNESCO World Heritage Site) is visible with the Hungarian Parliament, the Castle of Buda and the Gellért Hill.

One of my favorite images.
After an afternoon of exploration looking for places to take some astrophotos, I was in an area full of fog, but after a few minutes the sky began to clear, giving rise to a spectacular view of the sky...
The entire galatic arch in its highest position in the sky (above the northeast and below the southwest), accompanied by a large reddish band of airglow that fades into the light pollution of the city of Guatape. A friend had the idea of plamming the whole celestial vault in a single image and this was the result
This is a panorama of 7 photos to to cover the entire sky vault

Impact of a Meteoroid on the Lunar surface, minutes before the totality Eclipse 20-21 / January 2019

In spite of the maximum atmospheric conditions, the impact event was observed in one of the photograms of several dozens of images that he managed to capture.

This capture was made in the Observatory of Laloma, located in San Vicente Ferrer in the Department of Antioquia - COLOMBIA

it is a Reflector Telescope 25 "(635mm), f/2.9, 1854mm (using a 0.73X focal reducer)

I managed to capture this phenomenon from my garden late night, when this frosty day began with the total lunar eclipse at dawn observing from Hungary. It was a good day!

Total lunar eclipse
This is a multiple exposure of the Total lunar eclipse in France.
I choose a 30s exposure, juste before the end of totality, to shoot the background of the spot.
Like that, I could have the colorful reflection of the eclipse in the lake.

NGC 1055 - A Dramatic Looking Galaxy

NGC 1055 is an edge-on spiral galaxy located in the constellation Cetus. It has a percular dark lane of dust and gas that appears to be elevated above the galaxy's plane, almost blending away from the central plane. If you look carefully, several bright Ha areas can be easily seen.

The galaxy is fairly small in my instrument as it is only has an apparent size of 7'.6 × 2'.7 arc min. NGC 155 is 52 million light years away, and has a diameter of about 115,800 light years across. The apparent size is 7.6 X 2.7 arc min with an apparent magnitude of 11.4. It’s a fairly dramatic looking galaxy with an incredible glow around it.

Now for the inner geek stuff. The guiding is performed with a SBIG Remote guide head. It may be old, by it’s really a nice bit of kit having its own shutter and TEC cooler. It measures 4.86 X 3.66 mm in size, giving it a field of view of 7.31 by 5.5 arc minutes. So, it’s fairly small, but the galaxy presented will fit diagonally on the guide chip of this system. Hopefully, this helps to convey the size of this galaxy shown. An entire galaxy on a guide chip :)

After traveling several hours a road that took me further away from everything, I decided to stop to take nighttime photographs.
It was impossible not to try to take some photographs with a less panoramic lens and this was one of the results, where several nebulae and globular clusters are seen, a true portrait of the galactic center.
It is a panorama of 4 photographs with the following Exif

Bubble Nebula - NGC 7635

Copyright: Paul Gardner

Taken by Paul Gardner at Great Basin Observatory, Processed by Mark Hanson

Description By "Sakib Rasool"
"This dramatic image shows the Bubble Nebula in the constellation of Cassiopeia. It is a windblown bubble caused by the stellar activity of an O-type star, which is the white star that can be seen above and to the left of the centre of the bubble. Images such as this one that isolate the specific light of oxygen and hydrogen gas with specialized Ha and OIII filters render this cosmic scene in exquisite detail. A second false color image further accentuates the chemistry of this region with the colors of the narrowband filters mapped according to a scheme known as the Hubble palette, named after the space telescope, which first utilized this approach in the 1990's. The bubble has a size of 7 light years and is embedded in the emission nebula Sh2-162 at a distance of about 7000 light years."

Taken with a PlaneWave CDK 700 with exposure times as follows: Lum-180min, Red-120min, Green-180min, Blue-180min, S2-290min, O3-250min, HA-240min. Total of 780 min or 13 hours.

The first image is LRGB with HA and O3 added, the second image is a Hubble palette color map version, with RGB stars.

Click to play embedded YouTube video.

This a little short film I've been planning since 2015 when I shot my second total Lunar eclipse. This third time I wanted to do something different and decided to mix time-lapse with video.

I used 3 cameras and shot from sunset to sunrise.

THE MOON IS HIGH
One day after the eclipse, I leave here my contribution of January 22, 2019.
My first moon of the year, showing its peculiar characteristics. And always a pleasure to photograph it.

The Moon is usually seen in subtle shades of gray or yellow
The different colors are recognized to correspond to real differences in the chemical composition of the lunar surface.
The blue tones reveal areas rich in ilmenite, which contains iron, titanium and oxygen, mainly titanium, while the orange and purple colors show relatively poor titanium and iron regions.

Equipment:

I have imaged very dim nebulas, like Cocoon and Eagle Head, but I have never seen a nebula which is invisible in 30' subs... The first glimpse of Outters 4 nebula are seen after 5 hours of integration.
The Ha nebula is a little brighter, but not as bright as expected so I found that showing details of it was never going to be easy.
Total exposure time is 50 hours.
