Cliff Manzone at the Nathan Hale Homestead⁠ —⁠ REPOST: @cliffmanzone from facebook.com/groups/milkywaychasers chosen by @tracyleephotos⁠ —⁠ MWC Admin: @tracyleephotos⁠ ---⁠ #milkywaychasers to be featured or post on Facebook.com/groups/milkywaychasers. Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey!⁠ ---⁠ From Cliff about this image:⁠ ---⁠ STACKED / PANO / BLEND⁠ ⁠ Coventry, CT USA⁠ The photographer's dilemma... This is one of my favorite shots of the year. It was taken back in early August at the Nathan Hale Homestead, which is located in the town I grew up in... So here's the issue: If you look to the left of the building you'll notice power lines. In my opinion, they are a bit of an eyesore. Now my Photoshop skills are not very strong, but I'm pretty confident I could remove them without much issue. But here's the thing, right now with the image as you see it, I can legitimately say every detail is 100% real. If I remove those power lines, then I can only say this image is 99% real. And those non-existent power lines are the type of things those internet trolls (you all know the people I'm talking about) will cling to and try to discredit the reality of the entire image. I can see the comments already... "Where are the power lines?" "Photoshopped!", "Fake image!" .... So despite the minor eyesore, I chose not to fuel that fire. Like they say in golf, "Play it as it lies!" ⁠ ⁠ instagram.com/cliffmanzone/⁠ ⁠ Top frame: 15 stacked 15 sec exposures, 24MM, F2,8, ISO 3200⁠ Bottom frame: 2 stacked 120 sec exposures, 24MM, F2.8, ISO 3200⁠ -⁠ #longexposureshots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astrophotography #astrophotography #longexposure #longexpohunter #longexpo #amazinglongexpo #amazingearth #milkyway #nightphotography #nightexcl #amazingphotohunter #fantasticuniverse #nightphotography #nightimages #nightexcl #longexposurephotography

Hello again, it's J.T. from @nightskyflying with the second round of todays takeover! This time we look at our home galaxy: the Milky Way.⁠ ⁠ Do you want to know how to find the galactic core of our galaxy? If so, you're in luck because nature provided a crazy helpful hint. Look above the trees, not quite halfway up the image. You can see dust lanes forming a big letter "C" coming out of the Milky Way (the top part of the "C" is about twice as long as the bottom, but use your imagination). The middle of the galaxy, just to the left of the "C", that's pretty much the center of the Milky Way! If you ever want to find it again, just remember that "C" is for Core :)⁠ ⁠ Now, look to the right and left of the galactic core. On the right is Jupiter, the brightest object in the sky that evening (it's the one almost touching the top of the "C"). At about the same elevation, but to the left of the core, is Saturn. The ringed planet was not quite as bright but still very prominent. Meanwhile, back on Earth, the glowing lights of Sacramento, California radiate behind the trees.⁠ ⁠ Acquisition⁠ ----------------------⁠ Location: Eldorado National Forest - NorCal, USA⁠ Camera: Canon 6D Mk II⁠ Lens: Sigma Art 24mm⁠ Tripod: Neewer carbon fiber⁠ Unguided⁠ 6x10" Subs, f1.4, ISO 3200⁠ ⁠ Processing⁠ ----------------------⁠ Sky stacked in Deep Sky Stacker⁠ Ground stacked in Photoshop (same subs as the sky)⁠ Sky and ground realigned in photoshop after stacking⁠ Exposure, noise, and saturation adjusted in Lightroom⁠ Levels, curves, and cropping adjusted in Photoshop⁠ Blurred edges added in Photoshop to make the image fit IG⁠ ⁠ #milkyway #galaxy #nightsky #astrophotography #space #astronomy #universe #norcal #nightskyflying

A heart for everyone who needs it! My final post for this day, thanks a lot @universetoday for this chance!⁠ ⁠ This was my biggest project so far. This is an image of the Heart Nebula, an emission nebula located close to the constellation Cassiopeia. The integration time is 4 times 4 hours of 300 seconds subs. 4 times 4 times? Yes, i constructed a mosaic, since the field of view of my 102/714 APO refractor was too small to fit the entire nebula all at once. To cancel out moonlight and light-pollution, i used a Tri-narrowband filter, in combination with a color cooled deep sky camera. You can find detailed information over on my page, @astroaddict⁠ ⁠ This is a down-scaled version of the original file, which had more than 107MP!⁠ Post-processing, stitching, and editing were done completely in PixInsight. I may have gone a little overboard in creating contrast, but i still like it a lot. Astrophotography is about having fun taking images of amazing objects, and living a life outside, under the stars!⁠ ⁠ Again, a big thanks to universetoday! If you want to follow along with my work, you can find me here on Instagram, and on YouTube, just search for 'AstroAddict' :D⁠ ⁠ I wish all of you clear skies, and⁠ may the night be with us!⁠ ⁠ #astrophotography #space #universe #heartnebula

Hi AstroAddict's, my name is Tim, 22 year old astro-photographer and YouTuber from Germany! I am very excited to make my first post through @universetoday, thanks guys!⁠ ⁠ On my Instagram account @astroaddict and the YouTube channel, i am all about taking amazing pictures of deep space, and sharing that awesome experience with others.⁠ ⁠ This first image is not even a week old, my most recent shot of the Pleiades. Shot from a bortle 5 zone, i managed to catch three hours of two minute exposures. I am using a dedicated deep sky setup: German EQ Mount, ZWO ASI camera. The telescope is a 71/450 Quadruplet from Omegon. Everything is controlled with a laptop, and guided with a small guidescope. Since light-pollution is quite annoying, i am also using a City-Light-Suppression (CLS) Filter. ⁠ ⁠ The post processing took quite some time, since i wanted to preserve the faint dust and worked overtime to get the star shapes back in working order. The image data was stacked, alongside with correction frames, with a software called AstroPixelProcessor, and the final touches applied in PixInsight.⁠ ⁠ I am always open for questions and feedback! If you want, head over to my page and leave your comments below the same image🔭⁠ ⁠ I hope i got you excited for the next post, it's gonna be a target you should know very well by now :D⁠ ⁠ #astrophotography #space #universe #pleidaes #m45⁠ ⁠

A bright meteor above desert formations in Death Valley National Park, during the peak of Geminid Meteor Shower in mid-December, last year. Stars of constellation Orion appear at top-left and light of a far city illuminates the horizon. #saveournightsky #astrophotography #meteorshower #deathvalley @twanight

Comment how much you love this picture👇 This Galaxy is called NGC 2841 ✨ a giant spiral #galaxy similar to the #andromedagalaxy. It has a really big ring structure within the #constellation Ursa Major. It’s about 46 million light years away and it’s home to a large population of young blue #stars. The galaxy itself is around 100,000 light years wide.⠀ ⠀ image: © Roberto Colombari⠀ ⠀ 🔎Source: @thehubblescope⠀ Become a space lover with👇⠀ @space.photos10⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #galaxies #astrophotography #astrophotographer #astronomer #deepskyobject #astrography #universe #spacephotograhy
