Hello
The Milky Way with a view of the Tatra Mountains in Poland and a mountain stream is one of the most beautiful places I have photographed. Surrounded by a forest with the sound of flowing water, immersed in Egyptian darkness through which the stars and the Milky Way shine through. The temperature is close to zero and there is frost right behind the forest at the ground. Perfect conditions. And there's a meteor on the left side of the frame ☄️
When I was going down, I didn't expect the flowing stream to be so loud and make communication impossible, but despite this small obstacle, I managed to "catch the star"

Waiting 16 million years to see something really seems like an infinite amount of time, that's exactly how long it took for the photons to reach the telescope. Sixteen million light-years from Earth, in the constellation Hunting Dogs, a galaxy is moving away from us at 308 km/s. The light from this galaxy left 16 million years ago and, at this time, the galaxy has already traveled several million km further. These photons have been traveling at the speed of light (300,000 km/s) for 16 million years to make it possible for us to see them and create this image. M94, its name, is a barred spiral galaxy (like our Milky Way) peculiar because it has two distinct zones, an inner ring, about 30,000 light-years in diameter, and an outer ring, about 45,000 light-years in diameter. In the inner ring there are constantly forming stars while, the outer ring, contains about 23 percent of the galaxy's mass and contributes 10 percent to the formation of new stars, this outer ring, however, forms stars much faster than the inner ring because it is more efficient. This ring, after careful study, was found to have been created by distortion of the inner ring.
The galaxy is presented “face-on” to us so we can see some of its reddish-blue nebulae inside.

Milky Way Arcs Above Desert Rock

ImageMilky Way Arcs Above Desert Rock by Ahmed Waddah, on Flickr

In the midst of the New Valley Desert, I awaited the ascent of the galactic core. Then, like a cosmic curtain pulling back, the Milky Way emerges from darkness. It begins as a faint smudge above the jagged silhouette of the rock structure, then gradually blooms into a dazzling band arching across the sky.

Another blended composite from my night at a Bortle 1 location in the New Valley Desert. The sky shots were shot as the milky way started to appear and Antares, the red supergiant was high and visible. Foreground was shot just before sunrise.

Dear editors,

I would like to send you this image as a NASA APOD candidate. Thanks so much for your work and dedication.

Image

In the Eridanus constellation, and close to the Orion constellation, we find a very interesting and pretty faint reflection nebula, IC 2118. Also known as the Witch Head nebula, IC 2118 is believed to be made of gas, and dust and is about 50 light-years across. Located around 900 light-years away from Earth, the Witch Head Nebula is illuminated by Rigel, the bright blue supergiant star in the constellation Orion. The blue color of the Witch Head nebula contrasts beautifully with the dusty red clouds around the nebula, creating a striking visual spectacle. These red clouds are galactic cirrus, galactic filamentary structures that surround our galaxy.

This 102h 25' image was acquired from my backyard observatory during several winter nights this 2024. I used my dual Takahashi FSQ setup in order to get double the data. One telescope, the FSQ85, was focused solely on Ha data in order to capture the faint galactic cirrus. More than 50 hours were needed to show the final detail. I find interesting trying to push the limits of my own amateur astrophotography work with such deep exposures that allows me to show several interesting details. If you look carefully, in the bottom right of the image (horizontal view) a galactic cirrus reveals the shape of a bat, just below the "mouth" of the witch. We called it pareidolia, but it's also a nice view of the deep universe. The other telescope, FSQ106, was used to capture the Luminance data along with the RGB.

Image details:

FSQ106:
L: 486 x 300" (40h 30')
RGB: (35,28,50 x 300") (9h 25')

FSQ85:
Ha: 630 x 300" (52h 30')

Calibrated with darks, flats and dark-flats.

Total exposure: 102h 25'


Moon at 30% (on average)
Image resolution: 1.46”/pixel
FOV (full image): 2º 31' x 1º 41'

Equipment:

FSQ106 EDX4 + ASI2600MM + LRGB Astrodon filters + Ha3nm Antlia - with ZWO EFW 7 pos​​
FSQ85 + ASI294MM + SHO LRGB Baader filters - with ZWO EFW 8 pos

The capture shows a 39-hour crescent moon trying to settle down behind the dome of the Zselici Park of Stars

This combination of bright crescent and ash-gray Earthlight is an interesting sight, as if a very pale full moon is in the picture, even though the 5-second exposure makes it so bright for our shadowy celestial companion.

Of course, as soon as the image was completed, this narrow sickle was observed visually, namely by turning the telescope dome back on it

A Star Party to Remember

What a party! At our spring public outreach astronomy event many visitors came to see the moon and stars through a telescope. Imagine their surprise when, not only did the Aurora appear to the south, ( we live in Ottawa Canada) but the auroral corona exploded over our heads raining down on us with glorious light and colour. Red and green streaks were visible across the sky and we think we even saw STEVE. With a G3 level storm and a planetary KP8 index, May 10th 2024 was a night to remember.

Shot with a Nikon Z6ii and Laowa 15mm lens at f/2.8 3 sec exposures aty ISO 1600.

Aurora Borealis in England

This was shot in the Stonehenge area. Almost the entire sky was filled with colours. You could see these huge rays of light and colour painting the sky red and green. I stayed up all night capturing the Lights.

A photo of the May 10th, 2024 aurora (it's more likely a SAR, but that name doesn't sound as good).
If someone had told me that I would see the an aurora borealis from a hillside overlooking the Po Valley, in Italy, I probably would not have believed them. Still, thanks to the remarkable solar activity of the last few days, this phenomenon has been visible even at our latitudes. It is an extremely rare event that last appears to have occurred in January 1938, a full 86 years ago!
The lights in the background are Scandiano and the Reggio Emilia area.
Technical data: Canon EOS 6D with Samyang 14mm, 7 shots of 2s at 3200 ISO f/2.8.

The Auroral Phoenix
It is often said that during the peak of the Aurora the "wings" of fiery birds can be seen flying though the night sky.

The dramatic and powerful Kp8 aurora of May 11, 2024 was full of movement, flashes of light and pulsations.

And out of the magnetic chaos rose the fiery auroral phoenix.
It was a sight to behold for all who witnessed it.

NGC 5128 (Centaurus A) - galaxy in constellation Centaurus
Image

Centaurus A (also known as NGC 5128 or Caldwell 77) is a galaxy in the constellation of Centaurus.
It was discovered in 1826 by Scottish astronomer James Dunlop , in New South Wales, Australia.
There is considerable debate in the literature regarding the galaxy's fundamental properties such as its Hubble type (lenticular galaxy or a giant elliptical galaxy) and distance (11–13 million light-years). NGC 5128 is one of the closest radio galaxies to Earth, so its active galactic nucleus has been extensively studied by professional astronomers.
The galaxy is also the fifth-brightest in the sky, making it an ideal amateur astronomy target. It is only visible from the southern hemisphere and low northern latitudes.

Image

NGC 5128 is the nearest giant elliptical available for study at a 3.8 Mpc distance from us. Its close proximity provides the opportunity to perform a detailed study of its globular cluster system at a level of detail that is not possible in other giant ellipticals at present. At present there are over 600 globular clusters within this galaxy that have been confirmed.

In this image many Globular Cluster are visible ...

The photo depicts the Northern Lights captured in the village of Piasutno in Warmia and Mazury, Poland. The picture was taken on the night of May 10-11, 2024, during a G5 geomagnetic storm. It was the most beautiful spectacle I've ever seen. Typically in Poland, when space weather is favorable, you can see the aurora on the northern horizon, but that night the aurora spread practically across the entire sky and was clearly visible to the naked eye along with its colors.I took the photo with a Canon 60D and a Samyang 14mm F2.8 lens. It's a 5-second exposure at ISO 800 and F4.

Afterward, in Adobe Photoshop, I removed the noise that occurred on the camera's sensor.
