The picture was made during a mountain hike in Italia in front of the Rifugio Falere in Aosta, during a crispy night.



Very nice! I would offer ideas for you.... but you already have more experience with this one shot than I do.

Nice work Dick, looks like you've captured a good range of star colours. Something to try next time is to open the aperture up a bit and let some more light in. Guaranteed the stars won't be as round though (especially towards the corners)!

Shot last night in mediocre seeing with Cirrus cloud cover on top! And that is the best I have had for some time.

With Minolta 400/4.5 and ZWO ASI183MM camera.


With C8 - A closer look at Copernicus and Sinus Iridum





Clear Skies!!!

"6%..." is a beautiful photo, Mike - well done.

Francis, that is well spotted, and well captured and processed. Unusual indeed.

Thank you both, for sharing these photos.

Nicely captured Francis.

Here's a single exposure taken on a warm night through a very unstable atmosphere of ~80% moon (is that a long enough list of excuses?). I also took some video and plan on trying out RegiStax.

Here's what has been keeping me busy :-)

Eastern Veil Nebula

Shot with just 40 mins Ha and 8mins each of R G and B with Skywatcher 150PDS on EQ6-R mount. ASI1600MM-Pro camera. The Eastern Veil nebula (also known as Caldwell 33) is a cloud of heated and ionized gas and dust in the constellation of Cygnus and is located at around 1470 light-years from Earth. It is part of the Cygnus Loop which is a faint supernova remnant that exploded aproximately 7000 years ago. From the moment the source star exploded and until now, the Cygnus Loop supernova remnant expanded to a diameter of roughly 3° on the sky (that almost 6 full moons). The red hues in this image are from ionized hydrogen content of gas clouds that emit light in the H-alpha wavelength, while the cyan hues are from oxygen ions.

Elephant Trunk with RGB Ha and Oiii

Shot with 70 mins each of R G and B plus 55mins Oiii and 135 mins Ha. 6hrs 40mins total exposure. Skywatcher 200PDS on EQ6-R mount. ASI1600MM-Pro camera. The Elephant's Trunk Nebula is a concentration of interstellar gas and dust within the much larger ionized gas region IC 1396 located in the constellation Cepheus about 2,400 light years away from Earth. The piece of the nebula shown here is the dark, dense globule IC 1396A; it is commonly called the Elephant's Trunk nebula because of its appearance at visible light wavelengths, where there is a dark patch with a bright, sinuous rim. The bright rim is the surface of the dense cloud that is being illuminated and ionized by a very bright, massive starThe entire IC 1396 region is ionized by the massive star, except for dense globules that can protect themselves from the star's harsh ultraviolet rays.

Mike, that is absolutely STUNNING.. fanTASTIC work. Just lovely. Especially love the second one. Top tier. So great all your immense effort here paid off.   


Me... I am clouded in seemingly forever. Picked up a new toy to replace my camera lenses for full lunar disc shots.... never looked through it yet. Only had it a few days. Hoping for a morning chance Saturday or Sunday. Not my favourite phases - but beggars can't be choosers!

It's a Skywatcher Pro 100ED. (4 inch F9) My first refractor - used but in perfect new condition. :) Its a bit of a monster size wise at about 3 feet long. A full lunar disc will just fit on my 1 inch 20mp ASI183MM camera view - for partial discs I can easily get all in the frame by rotating the camera. I can hardly wait!! Also viewing shall be really nice with the great optics of this little beasty. Will be nice to be able to use the dual saddles of my mount. My setup shall be the 100ED on one side, and my C8 or 6 inch Newt on the other.

A very simple, basically a snapshot, of the moon. I just pointed my 200-600mm lens (on a7Riv) to the moon (handheld with no additional support) and took this shot (ok, I set the exposure manually, but this is also not a problem with EVF). I am amazed how much detail I can obtain with such simple snapshot...
