Image I took of the Leo Triplet last night. The Leo triplet is a cluster of galaxies located 35 million light years away from Earth in the constellation Leo. The Galaxies found in this image are M65, M66, and NGC 3628. This is around 3 and a half hours of integration. Equipment used was an Apertura 60FPL-53 and a Canon Rebel T7 #astronomy #astrophotography #space #cosmos #astrophysics #science #galaxies #celestron #meadeinstruments #highpointscientific #nasa #hubble #canon #stars #nightsky #modinebensteadobservatory

I think this has become my favorite galaxy! This is Messier 51. The Whirlpool galaxy, a grand-design spiral galaxy . The bigger object is Messier 51a and the smaller yellow one on the left is Messier 51b a smaller galaxy. I always tought that they were both in the same plane but Messier 51b is actually behind but very close.

Gregory Thompson - LighTrack II - Repost @totallygraphic ・・・ The Great Orion Nebula This is only 1 hour 15 minutes of data combined from 11/25/17 and one night in January of this year. The Trapezium is blown out and I did not have enough time to image for the bright nebula Trapezium. Maybe next year? Taken with the same set up as the Rosette Nebula.

It's me again! @_ethereal_astro :) My second picture is definitely one of my favorites, "The Horse Head and Flame Nebulas."⁠ ⁠ Astrophotography is a passion! I've actually only been doing deepsky imaging for a few months. The best part of taking images like this is doing it from my own backyard. I live in light polluted area (Bortle 5/6) but images like this are capable. ⁠ ⁠ This is one of the few nebulas that you can easily find if you are unsure about what's in the night sky. Just look for Orion's Belt and it's the last star on the left in the Northern Hemisphere and on the right for the Southern Hemisphere.⁠ ⁠ You'll find my own gallery at @_ethereal_astro :) Taken throughout California.⁠ Sony a7r IV (crop mode 1.5x)⁠ WO Spacecat (375mm effective w/crop mode)⁠ WO 30mm guide scope⁠ iOptron Sky Guider Pro w/iPolar⁠ PHD2 guiding⁠ 20x 363" light subs w/Triad Ultra Filter⁠ ⁠ #ioptron #sosmall #astrophotography #astroworld #nebula #longexposure #universetoday #spacecat #space #universe #sonyalpha #sonya7riv #astronomy #horseheadnebula #nebula #nightsky #stargazing #deepsky #galaxy #redcat #milkyway #amazing_longexpo #astro_photography #apodgrag #highpointscientific #flamenebula #williamoptics #photopills #triadfilter⁠ ⁠ Want to be one of the photographers featured on our channel?

Image I took of M81 and M82 using my new Apertura 60 FPL-53 APO. It’s a little different than my c9.25 and has a little learning curve with it but overall I’m super satisfied with it. M81 and M82 are two interacting galaxies located around 11.5 million light years away from earth. They are fairly easy targets to capture, both coming in at around an apparent magnitude of 7. This image is 2 and a half hours of integration with a full moon out. #astronomy #astrophotography #space #cosmos #astrophysics #science #galaxies #celestron #meadeinstruments #highpointscientific #nasa #hubble #canon #stars #nightsky #modinebensteadobservatory

Look at this guy. All he does is spin and spin and spin, until he crashes into something. Who knows. A fitting name for a galaxy, the Pinwheel. Also known as Messier 101. This galaxy has a TON of companions in its field. If you look closely, you'll see many tiny galaxies, some smaller and some bigger. So I guess space isn't that lonely after all. This is a reprocess of my old data. I recently looked at the old image and couldn't believe how ugly it was. Soo... 10 hours later, here we are! Considering the fact, that this was shot at F7.5, 14 hours Integration time really isn't that impressive. But I'm still happy with it, I got a decent amount of faint stuff in it. If you want to explore all of it, go to my website and check it out in high res! #PinwheelGalaxy #m101 #pinwheel #galaxy @teleskop_service @amateurastrophotographyezine #MilkyWay #nightphotography #漂亮 #星辰 #astrophotography #newmilkyway #ig_freiburg #spaceclub #highpointscientific #teleskop_service #astrophotography_germany #freiburg #astroshop #explorescientific #fotoloeffler #youresa #universetoday #spacelove #thenakedsingularity

My First Ever Stacked Astrophoto Following on from @gorilla_astro doing a #tbt last week I thought I’d share something this Thursday This is the image that started it all off for me almost 2 years ago. A tiny M31 taken with a terrible lens full of chromatic aberration sat on a static tripod I forget the detail of this image in terms of sub length etc and even what exact kit I had at the time I do remember the sense of wonder that I could get something from next to no kit and very little acquisition data and that sparked the journey I’m currently on Thankfully my kit and skills have come on a bit so the 2nd image is a slight improvement, ha ha What was your first image?

Yesterday, the International Space Station (ISS) passed in front of the sun. Since it is going 7.5km/s and it is roughly 500km away, it crosses the sun incredibly fast, no more than half a second. So this was captured at a high frame rate then slowed down to about 1/3 speed for this video.

#M101 already known as the Pinwheel Galaxy or #NGC5457 is a spiral #Galaxy which is about 21 x10^6 ly away. Its diameter is about 170 x10^3 ly. The galaxy can be found in the constellation Ursa Major .M101 has got a lot of HII (red color) regions which isn't visible in this picture. Out of stock cameras where normally build for daytime shots and cause of that there is an blocking filter for NIR wavelengths in the cam. Modifiyed cams or especially astronomy cameras has specialised filters. In the the last weeks the pinwheelgalaxy was a popular shot object in the night sky. I was surprised of that result, than in the eyepiece was nothing visible in spite of a 9,25 inch aperture.

Out in Joshua Tree exploring the monumental boulders of the area I found this rad rock formation that reminded me of a section of Stonehenge. Light from distant city glow shined through the gaps in the rock formation. The rocks were beautiful and the colors were epic. I illuminated the rock formation with a headlamp and loved the detail that I got in the rocks.

A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that nearly coincides with perigee—the closest that the Moon comes to the Earth in its elliptic orbit—resulting in a slightly larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as viewed from Earth. The average angular diameter of the moon is 0.52 degrees, compared to last night's of 0.56 degrees. The name "Pink Moon" comes from the bloom of ground phlox, a pink flower common in North America, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac. It has also been called the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon. This image is 1000 stacked exposures taken over the course of half an hour last night. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supermoon #supermoon #pinkmoon #astro #astrophotography #astrotech #highpointscientific #space #luna #lunar #photoshop #photography #nasa

The Jellyfish and Monkeyhead in Gemini Having found 2 subs on these subjects earlier in the week I got the chance to get some more data on this yesterday at dusk. Just 90 mins of data before it disappeared behind the neighbours house I didn’t get the framing just right as I missed a bit of the fainter nebulosity above the Jellyfish but I quite like the diagonal composition of this in general The Jellyfish Nebula (IC443) is 5,000 light years away and the remains of a supernova up to 30,000 years ago.

Image I took of the Pink Moon. While the Pink moon is not actually Pink, it is a super moon which receives its name due to the time of the year it happens in. Around the time the Pink Moon happens, a pink flower by the name of Wild Ground Phlox blooms. Due to this the moon is misleadingly referred to as a Pink Moon. This image was taken using a Canon T7 and a little Celestron Nextstar 4se. #astronomy #astrophysics #space #astrophotgraphy #moon #sky #cosmos #celestron #highpointscientific #meadeinstruments #canon #telescope #supermoon #spring #science

M13 - The Great Globular Cluster In Hercules Equipment: WOZ61, ASI183MC, CGX Clouds: None Moon Cycle: 61% Waxing Gibbous Exposure: 25x420sec I’m in kind of an astronomy rut right now because of online school, equipment difficulties, and light pollution from the moon and Phoenix 😞. To make things easier on myself I went out with my teeny tiny apochromat as opposed to the big SCT and shot M13, a relatively bright target. The Z61 is so underweight for the CGX that I had to add some weight to the scope by strapping my Apple Watch around it and fixing some metal clamps to the mounting bar lol. It’s incredibly difficult to get good color in stars from the city, but that’s really the only thing I would add to this picture. If you look in the top right you might be able to spot the fuzzy little galaxy NGC6207. #space #astronomy #astrophotography #telescope #telescopes #highpointscientific #zwo #celestron #williamoptics #backyardastronomy #gilbert #arizona #applewatch

The Cat's Eye Nebula or NGC 6543 is a planetary nebula in the northern constellation Draco. Some 3300 light years away from Earth. It was one of the first planetary nebula ever discovered. Unlike supernova explosions, planetary nebulae are formed by average Sun-like stars that exhaust their fuel and slowly expire. It will eject its outer layers in a shell of gas that will last a few tens of thousands of years before spreading into the vastness of space. _________________________________ 18 hours of data where collected with the C8 Edge HD over 4 nights with Hydrogen alpha & Oxygen 3 filters.

With Comet Atlas’s core elongating and possibly breaking up early, I decided to go for an image Sunday night even though the moon was at 91% and my focal length tops out at 350mm. I stacked 30x120s frames, tracking on a nearby star and following the Pixinsight comet alignment routine. Then a significant crop. Also showing a less cropped single exposure, processed similarly for comparison. #cometatlas #astrophotography #photography #love #passion #instagood #photooftheday #picoftheday #space #nature #beauty #beautiful #happy #heaven #divine #eternal #timeless #inspirational #art #astronomy #science #stellarvue #highpointscientific #cosmos #astro #ZWO #telescope #astrophotographer #nasa #apod

Repost Tuesday! ⁠ Thank you @jdh_astro for hashtagging #highpointscientific in your amazing photo! ⁠ ⁠ "M81 & M82 – Bode's and Cigar Galaxies⁠ –⁠ Here are my first two galaxies from galaxy season! This was a challenging target to start the season off with because where I image, these two galaxies are right in the direction of a bortle 9 light pollution zone. This caused me to have some nasty gradients to remove. I thought I'd pick up some integrated flux nebula with the galaxies, but because of my shorter exposures and thick light pollution, what I picked up wasn't very strong signal. However, I'm happy with the detail that I could pull out of M81 and M82 (especially those red jets out of M82). Both these galaxies are about 12 million light years away. I hope you guys enjoy :) hopefully more galaxy images to come this season!⁠ –⁠ Orion 8" Astrograph⁠ Celestron AVX⁠ Skywatcher Quattro Coma Corrector⁠ Stock Nikon D5500⁠ ⁠ Subs from 3/25/20 & 3/26/20⁠ 108 x 120s lights @ ISO 200⁠ No Darks⁠ 30 Flats⁠ 50 Bias⁠ Total Integration Time: 3.6 hrs"⁠ ⁠ 📷: @jdh_astro ⁠ Be sure to hashtag #highpointscientific for a chance to get featured on our repost Tuesdays!⁠ ⁠ #amateurastrophotography⁠ ⁠ #astrophotography#bodesgalaxy #cigargalaxy #m81 #m82#astrophotographer#astrophoto#astronomy #practicalastrophotography #igworldclub_astrophotography#deepspace⁠ ⁠ #astro_photography#astronomer#practicalastrophotograph#space#deepsky#universetoday

Continuing on with the rapid fire shots we have the planet Venus in conjunction with Pleiades. Venus and Pleiades meet in the night sky every year around April, but close ones only happen every eight years. This was taken on April 3rd. If you missed it, don't worry! It will happen once again in 2028. 😂 #oahu #hawaii #dso #deepskyobject #sky #stars #cluster #canon #eosrp #ioptron #skyguiderpro #williamoptics #spacecat #photography #nature #canonphotography #astrophotography #spring #bortleclass6 #nebula #Venus #Pleiades #M45 #SevenSisters #Subaru #六連星 #conjunction #highpointscientific @williamoptics @ioptron_telescopes

Lucky breaks for me equals more spacey content for you! Had a perfect weather night and was able to rapidfire 3 targets. Here's the first! I present the Lagoon & Trifid Nebula Taken from Wikipedia: The Lagoon Nebula (catalogued as Messier 8 or M8, NGC 6523, Sharpless 25, RCW 146, and Gum 72) is a giant interstellar cloud in the constellation Sagittarius. It is classified as an emission nebula and as an H II region. The Trifid Nebula is a star-forming region in the Scutum spiral arm of the Milky Way. The most massive star that has formed in this region is HD 164492A, an O7.5III star with a mass more than 20 times the mass of the Sun. This star is surrounded by a cluster of approximately 3100 young stars. #oahu #hawaii #dso #deepskyobject #sky #stars #galaxy #galaxies #canon #eosrp #ioptron #skyguiderpro #williamoptics #spacecat #photography #nature #canonphotography #astrophotography #spring #bortleclass6 #LagoonNebula #nebula #M8 #NGC6523 #TrifidNebula #M20 #NGC6514 #highpointscientific @williamoptics @ioptron_telescopes
