An interesting comparison. Because of the colours I guess (and perhaps also due to OIII being in two channels)......The HOO version on the left, (rather than the HSHO image on the right), better shows the details we are after in imaging this target.

NGC 6914 : Emission and reflection nebulae in Cygnus
https://cdn.astrobin.com/thumbs/eNmJ6Wx ... 2EQU70.jpg

NGC 6914 is a complex of nebulosities in emission and reflection in the constellation of Cygnus, at about 5000 light-years distance.
The reflection nebulosities, of bluish color, contrast in a very spectacular way with the omnipresence of the Ha signal, in red, in this region...

Four friends sitting on the shores of the Oceanus Procellarum

These four craters seem like four old friends sitting and having good times on the quiet shores of the Oceanus Procellarum, one of the large seas of the Moon.

From top to bottom: Cavalerius (59,35 km), Hevelius (113,87 km), Lohrmann (31,25 km) and Grimaldi (173,49 km).

Trivia: Oceanus Procellarum in Latin means "Ocean of Storms".

Galactic Love Car from BW Sahara SkyCamp
BW Sahara Sky Camp is a an astro hotel located in a bortle 2 location in the Black Desert of Egypt. This abandoned car is placed on a small hill above the camp. This is a composite were the car was imaged just after sunset and the sky image was taken in the White desert the next night and final image was composed in same orientation as actual milkyway rise!

Gassendi & Mare Humorum

Gassendi is 110 km large lunar crater located in the northern shores of Mare Humorum. The lava inundated the crater during its formation, hence the ground is quite smooth, except for the peak and the rim.

Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex

The Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex is a beautiful, gigantic cloud of colorful cosmic dust and gas located 460 light-years from Earth in the constellation Ophiuchus. It's one of the closest stellar nurseries to the solar system and one of the most-photographed objects in the night sky.

Total exposure: 20 hours (4 panel mosaic)

Clavius and friends

With its 230.77 km in diameter, Clavius ​​is the third largest crater on the Moon, to the point of being visible to the naked eye. Its formation dates back to the Nectarian period (3,920-3,850 million years ago), and therefore has an age of just under 4 billion years-

Clavius ​​is dotted with craters all around. To the northwest Scheiner (110 km), to the west Blancanus (105 km), to the southwest Moretus (114 km), to the north-east Maginus (194 km). The Porter (52 km) and Rutherfurd (48 × 54 km) craters are located on the east and south sides respectively.

From Zeta to Rho Ophiuchi

As the Rho Ophiuchi is a well known celebrity itself in the sky I'm most impressed with the complexity of the Zeta Ophiuchi nebula (Sh2-27) which I thought to be just a powerful field of ionized red-glowing hydrogen only, and it turned out to be an interesting festival of red glow heavily obscured and shining through the dust of the Great Rift.

The 3 pannel mosaic was taken with Samyang 135m/2 lens and modded Nikon D610.
Acquisition Time: April of 2022

In Peru there is a place not much seen in pictures but of an immense beauty. This is the Huayhuash mountain range, situated 13 hours from Lima. It is a place which is not very accessible, as you have to take several transports to get here.
This is Carhuacocha lake at almost 4,200 masl, one of the most beautiful lakes I have ever seen. Due to its nature, you can contemplate mountains such as Carnicero, Siula Grande, Yerupajá Grande, Yerupajá Chico and Jirishanca reflected on the lake. Almost every one of them above 6,000 masl (meters above sea level).

The wild trekking took me 8 days to complete, where you have to pass through different mountains passes (even above 5,000 masl) and had to sleep in the mountains for the whole duration of the adventure.

Supermoon of the 14th June setting behind the cathedral of Saint-Gatien in Tours, France
Shot @ 4:47 local time.

ImageSupermoon at Saint-Gatien by Joel Klinger, sur Flickr

Last Thursday's morning, I have been to the Mirabeau bridge in Tours (France) to catch the Moon setting right between the two towers of the Saint-Gatien cathedral. :-D
I had planned the right location to get the Moon exactly in between, and I had to be very quick and precise since the Moon moves really fast (especially when targeted with a 400mm lens!). Actually I should have done this shot the 16th May during the total Moon eclipse, yet the clouds rolled in just during it ... :-|
This picture is a blending of two shots taken in a row - one for the cathedral and one for the Moon (which is far brighter that the building).

Super Strawberry Moon (with a small green flash)
https://www.flickr.com/photos/julienlooten/
Copyright: Looten Julien During the first days of the week, the last full moon of spring was visible, also called "Super Strawberry Moon", a name given by Native Americans because it coincides with the strawberry season.
.
The Moon was closest to the Earth, it is said to have reached its perigee. It therefore appears brighter and larger than a normal full moon.
. In this photograph, the Moon is behind two wind turbines (which flood the horizon). There is even a "green flash"!

Hubble 20th Anniversary Image without Hubble palette colors (HOO)

Image

I was curious to see how it will look to get an Hubble image without Hubble palette colors, so I tried an HOO version of the Hubble datas of this legendary target.

Hubble palette is :
R -> Sii
V -> Ha
B -> Oiii

I did :
R -> Ha
V -> Oiii
B -> Oiii

A big part of the work was to enhance the stars by reducing halo and correct some artefacts.

M108, or the Surfboard Galaxy, is a barred spiral galaxy about 28 million light-years from Earth in the northern constellation Ursa Major.
It was discovered by Pierre Méchain in February 1781. This galaxy is an isolated member of the Ursa Major cluster of galaxies in the Local Supercluster.
It is a barred spiral galaxy with somewhat coiled arms. The galaxy's maximum angular size in the optical band is 11′.1 × 4′.6, and it is tilted 75° to the line of sight. From Earth, this galaxy is seen almost edge-on . It houses about 330 globular clusters.

A fuzzy bubble in Monoceros- PaRasMoMi-1
Copyright: Jonathan Talbot

A fuzzy bubble of Oxygen III emission lies in Monoceros. This objects is close to the famous Rosette Nebula. PaRasMoMi-1 (PN G 206.2+00.6) is a potential planetary nebula in the constellation Monoceros. It was discovered in April 2021 by Dana Patchick, Sakib Rasool, Sankalp Mohan and Utkarsh Mishra and lies some 5900 light years distant. This object lies close to the Rosette Nebula/NGC 2237 and is around 26 arc minutes in size which is close to the size of the full moon. The area here is full of faint HII emission (red) and an area of faint doubly ionized Oxygen (OIII) emission (blue/green) which exhibits a circular appearance and what looks like a bowshock front. This faint and circular area of OIII emission is the potential planetary nebula. The image was taken during the months of Feb, Mar, and Apr 2022 from my backyard under Bortle 5 skies using a 6" Stellarvue SVX 152T refractor and ZWO ASI 6200 camera. The image is a HOO composite with RGB stars. 36.5hrs of exposure time.
