Thank you for this stunning portrait of the color contrast (and the apparent size contrast) between the Moon and Mars!

The James Webb Telescope is Awesome !!!...Every new photo has hidden ,more deeper data available.

I have reprocessed Einstein Halo.

The stunning halo is the result of light from a distant galaxy passing through warped space-time surrounding another galaxy aligned between the distant light source and Earth. The new James Webb Space Telescope image, which was created by a Reddit-based astronomy enthusiast, is one of the best examples of the trippy astronomical phenomenon ever captured.

The ring of light in the new image comes from the distant galaxy SPT-S J041839-4751.8 (or JO418 for short), which is around 12 billion light-years from Earth, making it one of the oldest galaxies in the universe. JO418 is orientated directly behind another galaxy — the bright blue light at the center of the ring — which is so massive that its gravitational pull warps the space-time around it. As light from JO418 reaches the foreground galaxy it travels through this warped space-time. From Earth, it looks as though the light has curved around the galaxy, but the electromagnetic waves we see have actually been traveling in a straight line the entire time.

I would like to submit my photo of the Perihelion to Aphelion 2022 for APOD consideration.

Location details:

Perihelion: Oceanside, California
Aphelion: Oceanside, California


Perihelion: Jan 4th 2022
Aphelion: Jul 4th 2022


Telescope: Coronado Solarmax III Double Stack
Mount: iOptron CEM60
Camera: ZWO ASI 174MM

Image acquisition and processing:

I used Sharpcap to acquire videos of the sun on both days. Each video was about 2000 frames.

I ran both programs through AutoStakerrt3! and stacked 20 percent of the best frames. I then loaded each file into ImPPG and processed them to bring out more surface detail. Finally I then loaded them up into Photoshop, added a false color to blend the two images together and added the text.

You have my permission to use this wherever you want.

If selected please link to this:

Thank you for your consideration,

"Fall is on the Doorstep"

It's been quite the wet summer for us across the Panhandle and Big Bend of Florida and while it hasn't totally shut the door for astrophotography, it's made things difficult. Combined with my work schedule, I have to take every opportunity when the skies will be clear and the moon is gone. So a few mornings ago, I got up at 3am to head out to some of the darkest skies you can find in Florida. Main goal was to photograph the rising constellation of Orion along with the zodiacal light, a very cool astronomical phenomena that I haven't photographed much. Orion rising in the early morning sky marks the close arrival of Fall, and a welcome change for Florida astrophotographers who have spent the summer battling mosquitos, no-seeums, and nasty heat/humidity.

📍 Near Panacea Florida.

Large Magellanic Cloud, 2 panel Mosaic

This is a Mosaic with the Askar FMA180 (180mm FL) small refractor alongside with the Asi2600mc camera. It consists of 2 framings, each one with approximately 3h of integration (179 x 120s frames total, 5h58'). A broadband Idas LPS-D3 filter was used.
It is sort of surprising the amount of Ha details in this capture since no Ha filter was used.
Captured in Giruá, Brazil, bortle 4 zone.

Hi there,

Below my apod submisssion :

It has been a long time since we have seen such a beautiful and spectacular solar flare. The matter ejected with fury by our Star is now heading towards the Earth and its magnetic field, which it should tickle tomorrow. is good news for aurora enthusiasts, and of course, photographers who hunt them, because the shock of the CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) on the magnetosphere, followed by the interaction of solar particles with those of the upper atmosphere , should be visible in sumptuous dances of dawn this Saturday, October 30, after the plasma has traveled the 150 million kilometers that separate us.

Luck was therefore with us, all we had to do was enjoy and immortalize the moment.

NP Canyonlands showed me how it is like to be in area with pure dark sky. It was just terrific view! Even with small telescope (10cm in diameter) we could saw galaxies, nebulas and clusters which we can't see from Czech Republic with that small telescope. I will never forget the silence and thousands of glittering stars.

French mills haloed by the Milky Way

full : ... en-public/

Copyright: Looten Julien
At the top of a panoramic hillock not far from Saint-Émilion (France), 5 mills dating from the 16th century stand proudly. Two of the five winged mills have been renovated and magnify the Bordeaux vineyards. Three of the five mills can be seen here... including the two most beautiful!
Located more than 40 km from Bordeaux, this site is ideal for astrophotography. Nevertheless, the light pollution of the city of Libourne is visible to the left of the central mill, in the form of a very luminous white halo which masks the heart/bubble of the Milky Way...
The Milky Way is very high in the sky at the moment, the constellation Cygnus, with its numerous red nebulae, is at its zenith. To the right of the Milky Way, you can see the Andromeda galaxy, located very close to its neighbour, the Triangulum galaxy. Or, further down, the Pleiades and the California Nebula...... And so on... 🌌
This panoramic photograph was taken with a Sigma 28mm f1.4 and a Canon 6d astrodon. More than 50 images were needed to form this large puzzle..... A final image of more than half a billion pixels... So the computer suffered a lot (and so did I 😅)... So here is a very (very very) compressed and cropped view. Ps: for the purists, no stacking 📸
I hope you'll like it! Have a good week 💫

The Roaring Lion (SH2-132) - CDK14

Post by Rouzbeh » Tue Sep 13, 2022 12:22 am

The Roaring Lion

This one turned out much better than the initial master stacks. Post processing got a lot of depth and details out.

Captured with the CDK14 in "f/4.76 Astrograph" mode, the longer nights and clear nights have been a nice change.

Seeing has been better too with some frames going below 2.0".

At full resolution, some interesting and intricate details can be been in the brighter regains.

This image was captured through 3nm ultra-narrowband filters and is a composite of ionized Sulphur, Hydrogen, and Oxygen atoms and displayed with a modified SHO "Hubble" Palette. Hydrogen Alpha data was collected over 3 nights from the outskirts of Vancouver, Canada (Bortle 6).

Moon rise over Mohamed Ali Mosque by Wael Omar, on Flickr

This was really a challenging shot. I planned for it for several days to find the best location in a very crowded area in down town to put the moon within the same frame with " Mohamed Ali " mosque and Citadel of "Salah Al Din" , the most famous medieval Islamic-era fortification in Cairo. I climbed an old Minaret that was built in Medieval ages away by 2 km from the Citadel to observe the moon rising and passing behind the Minaret of the Mosque . I use canon 200 D with Sigma lens 600mm .

Settings : iso 800 . F5.7 - 4/5 second at focal lens 180 mm.

For the moon 13 shots , iso 200- F 5 - 1/10 sec.
