This is my image of the ISS taken from the university of tel Aviv in Israel.
It was a challenge to track, it was going speeding at high alt...
I used a 24" scope for this one.

Milky Way above sea of clouds and airglow

Milky Way above sea of clouds and airglow by Martin Giraud

Social : https://www.instagram.com/tinmar_g/

Here is a panorama photography of the Milky Way that I did during my recent trip in La Palma. You can see the Milky Way core above a see of clouds that block the light pollution from the cities below. You can also see at the horizon airglow (green glows emitted by our atmosphere) which is a sign of a clear sky.

La Palma island in Canary is a very well known location by the astrophotographers. Indeed the sky conditions are outstanding enough that it’s considered as one of the best spot of the north hemisphere for astronomy. It’s a Volcanic island that hosts several international telescopes regrouped into a park called Roque de los Muchachos that is located on the top of the caldeira at 2400m.

I took this picture the first night of my trip. For this first session my plan was to start gently, I had identified an easy spot where to park the car and shoot next to it but unfortunately this spot was already occupied… so I had to park the car somewhere else and to climb on the mountain through a little path that I found in the night until to have a clear view to the Milky Way. The car was too far to join it for a rest so I spend the most night out, it was my first night totally solo without lost in the nature. That was an experiment !

The picture is a panorama of 12 tiles (3 rows of 4 tiles) for the sky and a raw of 4 tiles for the background. Each tile is several, 6 for the sky and 4 for the foreground photography stacked. For each pic I used those setting : ISO-2500 - F2.2 - 30 sec

Equipment : Canon 6D - Sigma ART 50mm - Star Adventurer

This is the faintest target I have ever imaged. The Squid nebula (Outters 4) is located inside the Flying Bat nebula (the red region of ionized hydrogen gas). This nebula is located 2,300 light-years away in the constellation of Cepheus. The Squid is considered to be an outflow from the star system HR8119 in the center of the Squid nebula.

I used a ZWO ASI1600MM Pro with a Celestron C11 EdgeHD in hyperstar mode. I was using a ZWO EFW and Astronomik RGBHaO3 filters. I collected 30 hours of data from my backyard over several nights to get this image. I was imaging from my Bortle 6 backyard just outside Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

The Witch Watches her Crystal Ball. IC 2118, Rigel and a lot of tiny galaxies. OSC.

Witch Head Nebula – IC 2118, In Eridanus

The Witch Head Nebula (located around 1,000 light years away from Earth) is categorized as a reflection nebula, or one that shines with the aid of a nearby star. In this case, Rigel shines its bright light on the gas and dust to create the reflection that we see.
The dust reflects more blue light than red, which gives it its eerie purplish-blue hue.

The Seven Sisters (Pleiades Star Cluster, M45) in Taurus.

I tried to be truthful to this target. This part of the sky has a wide area of little-to-none real background,
and my goal was to show the cluster with details but also not to kill the dust surrounding it.
The final image showed up as a dreamy-looking framing.

The Pleiades are an example of an open star cluster.
A group of stars that were all born around the same time from a gigantic cloud of gas and dust.
The brightest stars in the formation glow a hot blue and formed within the last 100 million years.
They are extremely luminous and will burn out quickly, with life spans of only a few hundred million years,
much shorter than the billions of years our sun will enjoy.

Title: Se7en
ImagePleaides_Terlingua by Mohib Khan, on Flickr
M45 aka Pleiades aka Seven sisters is an open star cluster which glow a hot blue and were formed within the last 100 million years. They are easier to spot even from the cities, rising in NE portion of winter sky in the Northern hemisphere.

In Greek mythology these are the called the seven sisters, daughters of the titan Atlas who became an object of pursuit after a chance meeting with Orion. To save them from relentless Orion, Zeus turned them into a flock of doves which he then sent to heavens to become stars.

In Wyoming, North America, stands Mateo Tipi – or Devil’s Tower as it is now widely known – a 1,200 ft tall rock formation. According to legends of Kiowa tribe, seven young girls were chased by monstrous bears. To save themselves, the frightened girls leapt on a small rock and asked the great spirit to help them. The spirit heard the girls cries and made the rock grow upwards. The bears continued to claw at the rock leaving deep scratch marks and making it grow even taller, pushing the seven girls into the stars.

There was a slight breeze with some gusts in between when I started to photograph the cluster but I kept on going and didn’t check how the shots were coming out. After 40 or so shots, I finally decided to see how they were and to my despair all of them had trailing. So I moved my setup in a sheltered area (hence the composite), polar aligned again and reduced the exposure to 60 seconds to get acceptably sharp photos. This is my favorite area of the night sky during the winter months (more than Orion) and I have tried to photograph this before but never to my satisfaction so as to post it. Either due to lack of post processing skills or the light polluted area I photographed this from, I was never able to extract details like I did in this one. I specifically bought my Rokinon 135 mm to photograph this area and I am very happy with the results. So happy that I consider this as my favorite shot of all time.

M101 in H-alpha and continuum light

M101 (also known as Pinwheel Galaxy) is a large spiral galaxy in constellation Ursa Major. It contains many bright HII regions. Some of them even have their own NGC numbers.

The image was calculated with and without H-alpha information. By toggling between the two variants the correlation between HII gas clouds and bluish regions (containing young stars and probably also OIII gas) can be visualized.

Story - when the winter comes orion constellation is back to the northern night skies along with Rosette nebula , horsehead nebula ,Barnard's Loop nebula, California Nebula, and the Pleiades Star Cluster,
i had a dream, my vision was to capture orion with aurora , its a hard mission but i vision it in my head and i knew it is possible to get and h alpha stack and rgb with out moving the tripod and blend it .
on my latest trip into iceland with the talented Benjamin Barakat i was waiting to orion to rise over the magical northern lights in bortle 2 skies near Vesterhorn in iceland i was saying Hello to orion from the North pole. dream came true! Hello Orion Welcome Back To the Northern Hemisphere!

Fascinated with the work of Dr. Thomas Berger, Lockheed Solar and Astrophysics Lab, and associates, specifically their studies of solar prominence 'bubble voids' and 'rising plumes' with the Hinode/SOT space telescope, I was excited to discover I could observe some of these events first hand with a backyard solar telescope. This particularly dramatic bubble void and rising plume sequence was shot on 08 Oct. 2022 between 17:42 and 18:05 UT with a 4 inch telescope fitted with a Daystar 0.8A H-alpha filter and a ZWO ASI174MM CMOS video camera.
