Autumn Milky Way

ImageAutumn Milky Way by The Heavens Declare, on Flickr

The brilliant colors of leaves changing is just another sign that Milky Way core season has passed yet again, leaving us waiting for another Winter season of Orion.

Technical details:
-Canon Rebel t6
-25sec exposure at 3200
-Dark Sky site in Virginia, United States during November 2020
-Photoshop for levels/color adjustment

ISS with Crew Dragon Resilience transits Jupiter

ImageISS with Crew Dragon Resilience transits Jupiter by Tom Glenn, on Flickr

This composite image shows 39 consecutive frames that were captured during a transit of the International Space Station (with docked Crew Dragon "Resilience") across Jupiter. The event was captured from north of Lake Elsinore, CA, at GPS coordinates 33.732051N, -117.393964W, on November 19, 2020, 17:35:30 PST. The transit occurred when the ISS was at 27.6 degrees elevation, and at a range of 821km line of sight. This is not ideal, and Jupiter is also nearing solar conjunction. Nevertheless, this presented a unique opportunity to capture a planetary ISS transit. In addition to transiting Jupiter, the ISS passed close to Saturn and the Moon, which is shown in the video linked below.

I posted the following video on YouTube which documents the event, and shows the raw video footage, as well as maps and star charts used in planning:

https://youtu.be/scrG8jif4ZA

The transit was recorded with a C9.25 Edge HD telescope, and ASI183mm camera with a 610nm far-red longpass filter. The exposures were 0.7ms each, and the frame rate was 57fps. The transit ground path was plotted in Google Earth using software written by Ed Morana (http://pictures.ed-morana.com/ISSTransi ... index.html). The transit sequence is composed of 39 consecutive frames containing the spacecraft. The composite image is created by using a maximum intensity blending mode ("Lighten" in Photoshop). Three of the Galilean moons, Io, Ganymede, and Europa are visible in the image. Note that the image is oriented with Jupiter's North Pole at the top. The GRS (Great Red Spot) is not visible......the subtle darker spot visible on the surface of Jupiter is part of the NEB (North Equatorial Belt). After the transit occurred, I manually tracked the ISS as it passed high overhead, which presented a more favorable view for recording details. The same equipment was used, this time with a 0.3ms exposure. The Crew Dragon Resilience can be seen docked on the ISS (link to still image below......this sequence is also contained in the YouTube video):

Hey all,

Happy to present my recent images from November 2020. These are from our dual remote systems in Fort Davis, Texas consisting of:

Primary - Planewave 14" CDK/Paramount ME2/FLI PL16803 with Chroma filters
Secondary - Stellarvue 130/Paramount Mx+/ASI533MC (also on this setup is a SV70/SX 694 Trius; Askar ACL200/Canon 6d full spectrum).

First is the "Gumby" Nebula (which I always see instead of a running man), aka SH2-279 (14 hours LRGB):
SH2-279.jpg
Next, Messier 74 (13 hours LRGB):

Orion and the visitor

Copyright: Robin Onderka | www.instagram.com/robin_onderka

What is that green bulb next to the Orion’s belt? At this time, you can observe and photograph beautiful Comet C/2020 M3 Atlas, which is currently passing by Orion Constellation. Although not as majestic as Comet Neowise, it is definitely worth mentioning.

In the photo you can see the constellations that are typical of the winter sky in the northern hemisphere. They beautifully stretch over the mountains and cities of Slovakia, which are shrouded in mist. Thanks to the modified camera and long exposures, you can also see a lot of details of the emission (red) and reflection (blue) nebulae of these constellations. if you look closely, you will also see a Gegenschein and a soft airglow.

Gear: Canon 6D astromod + Sigma 35 mm f/1.4 + SW Star Adventurer

ImageOrion and the visitor by Robin Onderka, on Flickr
Robin, that's a wonderful photo! I love it! The blue-white gems of Orion's Belt are suddenly, mysteriously, joined by a brand new green emerald, which seems to be an extension of Orion's Belt and at the same time give it a kink!

I love the entire skyscape here as well, the composition and the colors. But my eye is inexorably drawn to this amazing version of Orion's Belt! :D

Ann
Thank you so much Ann for your comment. The fact that I received any feedback on this photo, and even such a positive one, makes me happy and is also a great motivation for me to continue in my work. I'm honestly a little sad that this photo didn't get any more attention on the internet, and I thought it got lost among other great photos that appear here, but who knows :-)

I really appreciate your comment and thank you again!

Wonders of Orion constellation

Image

This time I tried to cumulate everything I like about Orion constellation in one picture. I used 2 imaging sessions to combine them into one pano picture. The main characters in the scene are: Flame Nebula (NGC 2024), Horsehead Nebula (IC 434), Running Man Nebula (NGC 1977) and Orion Nebula (M42), however there are plenty of other smaller deep sky objects, as well as loads of stellar dust.

My submission:

Heart Nebula, Soul Nebula, Double Cluster, and 2 Perseids meteors rising over a chapel on a hill in California.

Taken with a 135/2.8 lens and full frame camera, reference shot denoised and enhanced with a stack of 400 x 30s more stacked sky images.

This image is designed to give people a sense of just how large these nebulae are in the sky; each of the two red nebulae is over 4 full moons wide.

In preparation for the upcoming solar eclipse in two weeks, I reprocessed images taken during the one of 2019. How fortunate to have two total eclipses in consecutive years, so close to my home!

The images were taken form Iglesia, San Juan, Argentina, on 2020-07-02. 11 shots of varying exposures were digitally combined to show from the chromosphere to the outer corona in an HDR composition.

M57finalsmall.jpg
The Ring Nebula in the Constellation Lyra

M57, the ring nebula, is found in the constellation Lyra. M57 is a planetary nebula, which is an expanding shell of gas ejected from a star in the later stages of its evolution. The image captured the outer halo structure of M57 as well as the galaxy IC 1296 (see annotated image on the Facebook page). Image is a total of 9 hr 20 min exposure taken through a 12.5” RCOS f/9 astrograph at f/6 (Astro-Physics CCDT67 reducer) with a SBIG STF8300m CCD camera on a Paramount ME on the nights of 18, 19, 22 May 17, 19 June 2020 in Mayhill, NM (13 x 1200 s lights, 5 x 1200 s blue, 5 x 1200 s red, 5 x 1200 s green all at -15 degrees C). Processed in PixInsight 1.8.8-6 Ripley (x64).

Full sky view of the Milky Way and airglow
www.mattdieterich.com
Copyright: Matt Dieterich
The dark night skies of Idaho provide a stunning view of the Milky Way! Here is a panorama I captured to show the full sky look at the summer Milky Way from Craters of the Moon National Monument with a Nikon Z6 and 14-24mm lens. The photos were all 30 second untracked images. Ample green airglow was in the sky that night along with Comet NEOWISE hiding behind the clouds on the horizon. Can you spot a few well known deep sky objects like the Andromeda Galaxy and North American Nebula?
