The Guardians of the Galaxy

Closing the milky way season here in Italy with this fantastic adventure with my friends....

After 4 hours of walk, we reach Serra Di Crispo peak at 2060 meters, in Pollino National Park, where we spend the night.

After few shots, I saw something strange in the sky. It was the ISS with our italian Captain Luca Parmitano! In the photo you can see the ISS pass with the straight line from the top to the tree! Very amazing..

Beautiful, Bogdan Borz. I have just become aware of your great astrophotography.

Westerlund 2 Bogdan Borz.png
Westerlund 2 (crop). Photo: Bogdan Borz.





















What I love most about your picture is that it "puts Westerlund 2 into perspective". When I looked at your picture of the Carina Nebula, I recognized everything in it except the little blue crescent at upper right. The reason why didn't recognize it is because I had never before seen a wide angle picture where we can actually see the location in the sky of this great cluster and nebula.
Wikipedia wrote:
April 23, 2015: NASA and ESA are celebrating the Hubble Space Telescope's silver anniversary of 25 years in space by unveiling some of nature's own fireworks — a giant cluster of about 3,000 stars called Westerlund 2. The cluster resides inside a vibrant stellar breeding ground known as Gum 29, located 20,000 light-years away in the constellation Carina. The comparatively young, 2-million-year-old star cluster contains some of our galaxy's hottest, brightest, and most massive stars. The largest stars are unleashing a torrent of ultraviolet light and hurricane-force winds that etch away the enveloping hydrogen gas cloud. This creates a fantasy celestial landscape of pillars, ridges, and valleys.

ABOUT THIS IMAGE: The brilliant tapestry of young stars flaring to life resemble a glittering fireworks display in the 25th anniversary NASA Hubble Space Telescope image to commemorate a quarter century of exploring the solar system and beyond since its launch on April 24, 1990.

'Large Magellanic Cloud in high resolution'

Copyright: Sabine Gloaguen
https://en.sabinegloaguen.com

This mosaic of 7 tiles for 95 mega pixels represents a large field around the Large Magellanic Cloud. I was delighted to be able to obtain such a detailed image with material, all in all, modest for astrophotography.
This irregular galaxy, composed of a single spiral arm, is crossed by a large bar.
It is very rich in celestial objects including the Tarantula nebula (NGC 2070), the largest known nebula. It was in the region of this nebula that we had the chance to discover the candidate planetary nebula FoGl 1 during a trip to Chile in 2018.

Technical details :
Camera CANON EOS 6D modified Astrodon / Optic Skywatcher Esprit 80ED / mount HEQ5.
Total exposure time: 17 hours.
Place of acquisition: Hacienda des Etoiles (Chile).

In glory of Cyril and Methodius (panorama)

Location:
On top of Radhošť. Radhošť is a mountain in the Czech Republic 1129 meters above sea level with a view of the Beskydy mountains. There is a television transmitter, which you can see on a photo, and few other interesting objects, including a chapel (built 1898) and a sculpture of Saints Cyril and Methodius located on the summit to glorify their evangelization of Slavic people.

The mountain is a popular destination for religious pilgrimages. Referred to as the place of Slavic god Radegast, Radhošť was the host of sacred ceremonies to rejoice the god during the time of Slavic antiquity. The name Radhošť is in fact a czech version of the name of Radegast.
There is also a pilgrimage path of Cyril and Methodius, which I underwent to take this photo.

Exif:
12 panel panorama in 2 rows on 24 mm, 8 photos stacked of each panel to reduce noise
13” f/2.8 ISO 5000

65 megapixels photo

Date: Sat 14. 3. 2020 around 9 - 10pm

Milky way and its predominance of hydrogen

In this image we have two points to mention:


1) Made with a modified camera (removing the Ir CUt filter and adding a baader filter, increasing the pass band [improving H-alpha capture)

2) A narrow band filter (Dual Narrouband composed of H-alpha and OIII) is used.

H-alpha is related to the capture of Hydrogen. Light is created by the hydrogen atom, the main constituent of the universe and the basis of the nuclear fusion that feeds the stars. H-alpha is red in part of the light spectrum and contributes to an overwhelming red color in most nebulae

So we have by the two methods mentioned an extreme predominance in the uptake of H-alpha, showing in red in the the milky way.

Great picture! :D You really bring out the power of S Monocerotis, the central ionizing star. We can see how all the nebular pilars and structures glow red from the torrent of ultraviolet photons that ionize hydrogen into Hα, and we can see how all those gas pillars are wind-blown and eroded from the onslaught of protons and other things that make up the stellar wind from the hot blue star. I also like that you show us where new star formation is taking place (the yellow area just left of the Cone nebula at far right, and maybe the yellowish flecks farther to the left, too).

Well done! :clap:

That is a superb, detailed and beautifully colorful widefield view of the gaseous and dusty features surrounding hot bright star S Monocerotis in the NGC 2264 region of star formation.

Sh2-284 is a HII star forming region of gas and dust located in the constellation Monoceros approximately 15 thousand light years from the Earth. This remarkable nebula resembles the more familiar Rosette Nebula (Caldwell 49). Along the edges of Sh2-284 are several "elephant trunk" formations. These are monstrous pillars of gas and dust that stretch into the central void of the nebula. Perhaps the most prominent of the pillars is located to the left center of the nebula. It resembles the forefinger of a hand pointing to the stars in the center of the nebula. These pillars are formed by intense radiation and stellar winds radiating from the very hot stars of the central open cluster designated Dolidze 25. The radiation and wind from the cluster is responsible for clearing the central void in the surrounding nebula. Dolidze 25 is a very young cluster with an estimated age of approximately 3 to 4 million years.

Milky Way from 35,000ft up in a plane
www.mdieterichphoto.com
Copyright: Matt Dieterich Here's a view of the Milky Way I captured setting over the South Atlantic from 35,000ft in a plane while flying 570 mph. I had some funny looks hunched over a tripod with a blanket covering myself to prevent glares on the window, but so worth the excitement! I used a Nikon D850 with 14mm lens at F2.8, 15 second, and ISO20,000.
