I wanted to share these 2 shots, I’m very impressed with the results you can achieve with the Triad filter. I couldn’t expect such astonishing results when few years ago I dived into astrophotography with a Canon 450. From the ASIAIR interface, stretching a little the 5 minutes subs give an incredible amount of details.

Cole isn’t entirely happy with his first astro time lapse but I think it turned out pretty cool! . We’re in the Upper Peninsula of Kijigan right now and ended up camping out of cell service. I like you guys but it’s been really nice. I finished a book I’ve been trying to read for 1.5 years and have been able to cook a lot. We have a ton of recommendations of where to head next so we’re a bit overwhelmed but going to hang out for one more day here before deciding. . #astrophotography #timelapse #panasonic #skoolie #skoolieconversion #buslife #buslifeadventure #fulltimerv #roadtrippin #skoolienation #homeiswhereyouparkit #boondocking #adventuremobile #vlogger #travelvlog #tinyhouse #glamper #campingculture #diycamper #adventureisoutthere #offgridliving #vanlife #travelcouple #outboundliving #gorving #modernoutdoors #ourcamplife

Bubbles in the Sky: The Ring Nebula - One of the most popular targets for summer outreach programs, this gorgeous planetary nebula is situated right between two bright stars in the constellation Lyra, and so it’s very easy to find and a treat in any medium-power eyepiece. The star creating this beauty is experiencing the end of its nuclear fusion phase. It lacks the radiative energy to resist gravity’s pull on its matter, so it’s contracting. As it shrinks, its temperature rises to incredible levels, enough to pretty much literally boil away some of its outer layers. As these layers expand away from the star, they create incredibly rich and complex shapes, glowing in the signature colors of the elements in the gasses. The star itself provides the energy to cause the gasses to fluoresce. As it heats up, it begins to emit enormous amounts of energy at ultraviolet wavelengths. This radiation is perfectly suited for making rarified gasses glow. - If you pay attention, you notice there are several shells in this nebula. The process that creates these nebulae is episodic. When active, it creates a shell that expands away from the star, and when inactive, so little is going on that sometimes the nearest gasses can begin to fall back onto the star. Perhaps this contributes to the periodic nature of these nebulae. - But what’s that to the side of the Ring Nebula? It’s galaxy IC1296, a lovely spiral galaxy far in the distant background. In fact, it’s 220 million light years away, a stark contrast to M57’s 2,200 light years distance. It’s coincidence that the galaxy is 100,000 times as distant. With that vast distance between them, the size of IC1296 becomes apparent. To be as close to the size of something 100,000x closer, it must be gigantic! - The last tidbit to point out in this image is the bright knot in the lower arm of IC1296. That is supernova sn2013ev. I happened to photograph M57 as that supernova was visible. I got so excited thinking that I’d discovered a supernova! A quick online search showed I’d missed it by a couple of weeks. Ah well. #astronomy #astrophotography #scicomm #stars #nebula #lyra #m57 #ringnebula #timstoneastronomy #beautyallaround

Happy Saturday everyone! Here are 5 fun facts about astronauts you may or may not know!⁠ ⁠ 1. All astronauts must speak, understand and read fluent Russian. This is for safety reasons so both the Russian Sector and the American Sector can communicate. Its a requirement for NASA Astronaut Training.⁠ ⁠ 2. The only bread astronauts are allowed onto a spacecraft are flour tortillas. This is because crumbs can damage the machinery and flour tortillas are mostly crumb-less⁠.⁠ ⁠ 3. No matter the mission, all astronauts still have to go through customs. When the astronauts of the Apollo 11 got back from the moon, they had to go through customs and declare the moon rocks, moon dust and other lunar samples collected on their mission.⁠ ⁠ 4. Apollo 14 astronaut Alan Shepard was the first person to play golf on the moon. It’s estimated that ball traveled for over a mile, unofficially setting the record for the longest drive in history.⁠ ⁠ 5. There are no washing machines in space, so doing laundry is impossible. When clothes become too dirty, they simply put them into plastic bags and throw them away. If needed, more clothes are sent up in resupply missions.⁠ ⁠⁠ How many of these facts did you already know? Do you have any other fun ones to share? Leave them in the comments below!⁠⠀⁠ ⁠ Photo credit: @Nasa ⁠ ⁠ #Space #Astronauts #Funfacts #Spacesuit #ISS #nasa #astronomy #astronaut #galaxy #cosmos #nebula #universe #solarsystem #planets #astrophotography #science #stars #milkyway #outerspace #interstellar #nightsky #nasabeyond #astrophysics #esa #rocket #TeamHighpoint #highpointscientific ⁠ ⁠⠀⁠ ⁠⠀⁠

Some great photos of Jupiter and Saturn taken by Western Australia based astronomer, Jacob Heppell with a Sky-Watcher 8" Dobsonian telescope! As he explained - "Had really good seeing earlier in the week so went for a dedicated Jupiter and Saturn session (plus a little casual viewing of the clusters!). Best results I've got so far and probably close to the limit of my DSLR's capability. Annoyingly, there's no option for raw video capture on the Nikon D7500 so have to make do with lossy compression (.MOV or .MP4) Skywatcher 8" GoTo Dobsonain. 3x TeleVue barlow. Nikon D7500 5 minute .MOV video. Cropped and centered on PIPP, derotation on WinJUPOS, stacked on AS!3, wavelets on RegiStax6, contrast/color enhancements on Photoshop CS5" Thanks Jacob! #skywatcheraustralia #skywatchertelescope # #astro #astrophotography #solarsystem #jupiter #saturn #nikon #nikond7500photo #universetoday @nikonaustralia

Galaxy M31, or NGC 224 is nearest galaxy to Milky Way, about 2,5 mio ly from us. Someone may know M31 as big nebula in Andromeda. M31 is biggest in group of galaxies, where Milky Way is also and about 30 smaller galaxies. Even thought M31 is biggest in our group of galaxies, it may be not the heaviest. Recent findings suggest that the Milky Way contains more dark matter and may be the most heavy galaxy in the group (And you got it M31 in Andromeda constellation) 😁 Another interesting thing is that the M31 And Milky Way will collide in 4,5 bilions years and form brand new elliptical galaxy, wow! This picture contains 154x59 sec, ISO 1600, and 73 dark frames. Made by Canon EOS 600D with CLS CCD Astronomik, Baader MPCC MKIII, SW 150/750 f5, Heq5 PRO. I want to make more data as soon as possible and make new picture, but cannot wait to try postprocess this galaxy. #astronomy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astrophotographer #milkyway #constellation #andromeda #universe #space #solarsystem #summer #deep #sky #objects #nebula #star #stars #galaxy #galaxies #prague #canon #skywatcher #sky #astro #astronomy #photooftheday #night #nature #summer #newton #dslr
