Happy new year!
my submission of the earth to scale and the scale of a solar flare from the 31st of December taken in Kuwait. I found the scale using reference pdf files to measure proms and showsnthebrealtive size of earth in comparison.

equipment : Lunt LS100MT with a 2.5x barlow and an asi 120mm

feel free to use the image as liked.

Space & Time - Milky Way in an Hourglass

Date: August 27, 2021
Location: Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, United States
Link to Flickr Full-Size: https://flic.kr/p/2mUtKct

This is an actual capture of the Milky Way and Cape Hatteras lighthouse in both halves of an hourglass. I emptied the sand from the hourglass and then filled it with water to act as a double-decker fisheye lens. This photo is actually a blend of about 10 different photos which I manually stacked to reduce noise. I had to stack them and process them manually to account for the varying relative levels of movement in the background stars, hourglass stars, and the stationary lighthouse.

Image Specifications:
~10x16sec at 3200 ISO (stopped down to f/2.8)

Equipment Used:
-Canon Rebel t7i DSLR
-Samyang 14mm f/2.8

Happy new year everyone!

The Cygnus region of the sky including the North America Nebula, Deneb,Sadr, and the Crescent Nebula rising over the Alabama Hills in California.

Shot with a 100mm lens (which gives you an idea of just how HUGE these nebulae are in the sky) and ~2 hours of exposures, mostly with a dual-narrowband H-alpha / O-III filter and then combined with RGB). This is tracked and blended for denoising, but the perspective is unaltered, i.e. it is an accurate representation of what we would see if we had better eyeballs and sensors. :)

Another submission -- Markarian's Chain over Mt. Lassen

There are at least 19 galaxies in this image I can count, and probably many more!

This was shot with a 500mm lens from a very precise location several tens of km from the mountain. I had carefully selected this location where Markarian's Chain would rise directly over the mountain.

As above, this is tracked and blended for denoising but perspective is unaltered.

A Lunar Day on Clavius

ImageA Lunar Day on Clavius by Tom Glenn, on Flickr

A lunar day on Clavius crater. This sequence is composed of 12 individual images that I captured from my backyard in San Diego, CA over the past 4 years. While Clavius normally appears foreshortened from Earth, these images have been transformed into a stereographic polar projection, yielding a unique overhead perspective. The map projection also aids in aligning images taken on different dates, because the raw images are non-superimposable due to perspective changes from libration.

I also posted an animated version of these frames (plus one additional frame):

When we observe solar and lunar eclipses, the shape of the sun and moon will change with the magnitude of eclipse. When the magnitude of eclipse is very large, the sun and the moon will become very thin, but the shape is different from the very thin crescent moon. This is because they have different reasons for forming bright and dark regions. The shape when the magnitude of eclipse is close to half is also different from the first quarter moon or the last quarter moon. Of course, when the magnitude of eclipse is small, the shape of the sun and moon is also different from the gibbous moon. If you look closely at the solar eclipse and the lunar eclipse, the geometric shapes of the sun and the moon are also different. The dark area of the solar eclipse is because the sun is blocked by the moon, so the edge is a small arc. The lunar eclipse is because the moon enters the shadow of the earth, so the edge is a larger arc.

The Evening Star
Copyright: György Soponyai

This photo presents the analemma-like celestial path of planet Venus on the Western sky between middle of May and the end of December capturing with a wide-field lens near Mogyoród, Hungary. The pictures were taken at the time when the Sun was located exactly eight degrees below the horizon.

A Helping Hand in Cassiopeia
Copyright: Jon Talbot
Weblink: https://www.starscapeimaging.com/Helpin ... 0Hand.html

The attached image shows a marvelous and busy area in the constellation Cassiopeia. It contains a large amount of dust, several dark nebula and several reflection nebula along with two interesting stars. Near the top center is the star SU Cassiopeiae which is a Cepheid variable at Mag 5.94. SU Cass is a Yellow giant with a spectral class of F5:lb-11. It's 19 times larger than our sun. SU Cass lies 1289 light years distant. Surrounding it is the blue reflection nebula VdB 9 which is lit up by SU Cass. The blue wisps extend quite a ways around this area. The other interesting star in the lower center left is the star RZ Cassiopeiae. RZ Cass is a white A3V main sequence star at mag 6.26. It's an eclipsing variable star which is 219 light years distant. The bluish nebulosity surrounding it is listed as VdB 7. However RZ Cass is apparently not the source to light up VdB 7 but another smaller 11th mag star nearby. Several dark nebula are right of center in the image. The upper part of this nebula looks like an opened hand, hence the nickname (The helping hand). The dark area of the hand, near the top finger is designated as LDN 1357 and below it near the palm, LDN 1355. The long dark area near center right is the dark nebula LDN 1358. Throughout this entire area encompassing the field of view is lots of molecular dust of varying thickness and color. Check out the annotated image showing where these objects are. Also check out the full res image to see lots of interesting detail. This image was taken under the dark skies of the Okie Tex Star Party in October 2021. It encompasses 14.3 hrs of exposure time using LRGB filters.

Crescent Moon and Venus
Today’s crescent moon is illuminated only by 3.8%, and Venus, which is very close to the sun, is illuminated only 1.0%. Both are very thin and crescent-shaped, especially the small crescent of Venus in the long lens is very beautiful. The video is attached with the small crescent sinking.

Venus and the Moon
The comparison of the apparent diameters of Venus and the Moon was recorded on December 7, 2021. At that time, it took about 46 Venus to be arranged on the diameter of the Moon. Yesterday (January 4) I recorded the latest comparison of the apparent diameter of Venus and the Moon. Venus has almost reached the maximum observable diameter (1'02"). At this time, only about 32 Venus can be arranged on the diameter of the Moon. So through binoculars we can easily see the small but obvious crescent Venus!
The video is attached with the small crescent Venus sinking. The link is as follows: https://youtu.be/6VMDVsWNNEg
