Saturn with the resplendent colours of its Southern Hemisphere
As Saturn moves around the Sun in its 30 year orbit, its rings maintain the same orientation with respect to the Sun. In 2018 that orientation was such that the rings were fully tilted towards the Sun and the Earth and we could see the northern hemisphere of the planet including the iconic hexagonal polar vortex. However, the southern hemisphere was completely hidden from our view by the rings. 4 years later in 2022, Saturn has moved in its orbit and by virtue of the fact the rings have maintained their same orientation in space we now see them more side on. This results in the narrowing of the ring tilt, gradually revealing the southern hemisphere of the planet. The color scheme of the southern banding including blues, purples and turquoise has become apparent and is quite magnificent. Equally, atmospheric features such as eddies, festoons and ovals can now be resolved as they are here. The rings will become edge on in 2025, before tilting the other way to more fully reveal the southern hemisphere.
The Lucky Imaging technique employed to produce this image resulted in the integration of 87,000 images to allow the Earth based amateur astronomer to largely negate the effects of the atmosphere and to resolve details such as can be seen here.

Cygnus Clouds

Cygnus region is a rich with excited ionized Hydrogen gas and its where the North America Nebula, Pelican Nebula, Butterfly Nebula and Crescent reside. So I decided to frame the most dense are in that region and using a fast lens like the Rokinon 135mm and a dual band filter to extract Ha and OII and to recombine them in a mainly HOO color pallet but with OIII coming from the Green and Blue channel.

I present NGC-6960, The Witch's Broom processed in the HOO pallet.

Part of the Cygnus Loop, a supernova remnant, lies The Witch's Broom. An estimated 10,000-20,000 years ago, a star that was 20 times more massive than our Sun exploded creating this impressive sight. The explosion would have been brighter than Venus and even visible during the day.

Sharpless 115 https://cdn.astrobin.com/thumbs/77Twaqs ... UALzhf.jpg
Full version :
https://www.astrobin.com/full/2edde4/0/

Sh2-115 is a faint emission nebula cataloged by Stewart Sharpless in 1959. It is located in Cygnus, just 1 and 2 degrees northwest of Deneb, the brightest star of that constellation.
Shining with the light of ionized atoms of hydrogen, sulfur, and oxygen in this Hubble palette color composite image, the nebular glow is powered by hot stars in star cluster Berkeley 90. The cluster stars are likely only 100 million years old or so and are still embedded in Sharpless 115. But the stars' strong winds and radiation have cleared away much of their dusty, natal cloud. At the emission nebula's estimated distance, this cosmic close-up spans just under 100 light-years.
Abell 71, is the designation of the small round patch of emission nebulosity to the left of Sh2-115. It is also known as Sh2-116 and PK85+4.1. The latter being designated as a planetary nebula, but it has more recently been described as a small patch of emission nebula.

The Heart of the Lagoon Link to full resolution image.
https://flic.kr/p/2ntoiaW

Commonly known as the Lagoon Nebula, M8 was discovered in 1654 by the Italian astronomer Giovanni Battista Hodierna, who, like Charles Messier, sought to catalog nebulous objects in the night sky so they would not be mistaken for comets. This star-forming cloud of interstellar gas is located in the constellation Sagittarius and its apparent magnitude of 6 makes it faintly visible to the naked eye in dark skies.

I'm extremely proud to present to you, Messier Object 8, the Lagoon nebula. When I planned on imaging Messier 8, I hadn't realized that it would soon become one of my favorite images to date. The billowing dust within the heart of this incredibly bright deep sky object stood out to me as one of the most unique features I'd ever seen in a deep space image. I spent extra time to carefully ensure that I didn't lose detail by blowing out the brightness within the core. Who knew that such majestic wonder could be captured from a suburban backyard.

On June 23, 2022, the sky is clear this morning, and the planets are still aligned on the ecliptic, drawing a large arc in the sky. Mars and the moon conjunct, the two are very close together. On the pink eastern horizon, the Pleiades sit next to Venus, with the rare planet Mercury below. The stars

I love this image.

I'll tell you up front that I'm normally no great fan of Hubble palette mapped color images, but I love your image and its colors. Your colors are soft and blend beautifully. I love how the central regions of the Lagoon are mostly blue in your image (but with splashes of soft yellow and orange and almost pink), while the "first outer border" is shown entirely in shades of orange, while the outermost border is a darker shade of orange, which is to say that it is brown.

And I just love the composition, too. Yes, I can see the well-known Hourglass Nebula (in white, and I appreciate the choice of color), and I can see the well-known dust funnels surrounding it. But what I have never seen (or paid attention to) before is the amazing almost heart-shaped dust lane "frame" that surrounds the area around the central Hourglass Nebula like a frame surrounding a beautiful painting.

I can see that you have flipped the Lagoon Nebula some 90 degrees "to its side", because cluster NGC 6530, which is usually seen to the left (east) of the central Hourglass Nebula, is now seen "above" it. By flipping the Lagoon Nebula this way, you force us to see it in a new way - or at least you forced me to see it in a new way!

Thank you!

Hickson Compact Group 40 from Hubble by William Ostling, on Flickr

Full write-up here: https://theastroenthusiast.com/hickson- ... om-hubble/

NASA is celebrating the Hubble Space Telescope’s 32nd birthday with a stunning look at an unusual close-knit collection of five galaxies, called The Hickson Compact Group 40. This menagerie includes three spiral-shaped galaxies, an elliptical galaxy, and a lenticular (lens-like) galaxy. Somehow, these different galaxies crossed paths in their evolution to create an exceptionally crowded and eclectic galaxy sampler. Caught in a leisurely gravitational dance, the whole group is so crowded that it could fit within a region of space that is less than twice the diameter of our Milky Way’s stellar disk.

Image6 planets and the crescent Moon by Joel Klinger, sur Flickr

Yesterday at 3:45am I have been chasing the planets in the morning sky of Tours (France).
That's what you see here, as shot at 4:55am: Venus rising, Mars close to the crescent Moon, Jupiter shining bright and Saturn in the upper-right corner - while Uranus and Neptune are also visible, as seen when zooming. You can also see the Pleiades above Venus.
Only Mercury is missing: I actually succeeded in capturing it, yet a little later when it came out of the fog at the horizon, while Uranus and Neptune were not visible anymore due to the brighter morning light.

"All the planets in one photo"
Captured at St Cloud, Florida around 545am local time on June 24th, 2022.

"What a beautiful morning in Florida to capture the Planetary Alignment of Summer 2022. All the planets of our Solar System are pictured in this 3 image panorama taken from St. Cloud, Florida! What a sight this morning!

This alignment, minus the moon because it's entering the new moon phase, will be in this configuration through much of the summer. Mercury is about to transition to an evening sky object, and even when I photographed this it was extremely difficult to see Mercury in the clouds and bright twilight, so the next few days are your last chance to see it with all the other planets. Saturn is moving west in the sky though so it'll be harder and harder to get a photo of them "together" in the sky. Why aren't Uranus and Neptune labeled? They're too dim to be captured by this camera. However, if we could see them, Neptune would be a little to the right of Jupiter, while Uranus would be just to the bottom left of the Moon."

3 image panorama taken with a Sony a7ii camera, Sigma 14mm f/1.8 lens, ISO1600, f/6.3, 15 seconds.

Star Trails and Fireflies.
Image

I set out to do some Milky Way photography, but the constant firefly flashing here in the Indiana summer was really striking against the stars above. They fill the trees with their own constellations of flashing, while others fly in front of you leaving their own light trails. I tried to capture that essence.

I took 13 30-second exposures (ISO 100) with a Sigma Art 24mm f/1.4 on a Nikon D5600, then stitched this together in Sequator. In photoshop, I stretched contrast and minorly tweaked yellow saturation to emphasize the fireflies and to match the on-the-ground human eye appearance. I didn't have enough time or battery to get dark and flat frames, so I minorly touched up in Topaz Denoise to eliminate hot pixels.

A break in the clouds this morning allowed me to capture not only the five naked-eye planets, but to also image Uranus and Nepture, the latter being just a smudge on the full-size image. The position of Pluto is also shown in the west. A panorama of nine images, each 1.6 seconds exposure, taken with a Canon 6D and Sigma 24mm lens at f/1.8, ISO-400 and stitched in Microsoft ICE as a spherical projection. This is pretty much the holy grail of solar system imaging with a standard camera lens for me. If the weather becomes cloudy over the next week or two, I may not image this many planets in a single panorama again in my lifetime, or yours!
