  • For those that know me know how critical I am of my astro photos. I can always find something wrong or something I could've done better in pretty much all the shots I've posted. My milky way shots from 2 years ago to this year are like night and day.. or night and night.. whatever.. I'm not saying that as a negative, but more a positive as it helps myself learn and improve.. this shot being a prime example. I posted my first attempt at the orion nebula a week or so ago and I absolutely was happy with it given it was a first try, but then immediately focused on what I could've improved. Last Friday we were gifted another clear night so I wanted to shoot it again, this round taking more time to set up and post process "properly". Much happier with this 2nd try.. and I'm sure in due time I'll find something wrong with this and wanna do it again😂..but hey, that's a part of the game🌌 ..stealing @theeyeofthemind 's shot breakdown🤪

  • Fly Through the Orion Nebula in Visible Light🚀

Would you want to fly through the Orion nebula?🤔
⠀
This visualization explores the Orion Nebula as seen in visible-light observations from the Hubble Space Telescope. As the camera flies into the star-forming region, it reveals a glowing gaseous landscape that has been illuminated and carved by the high-energy radiation and strong stellar winds from the massive hot stars in the central cluster. The high-resolution visible observations show fine details including the wispy bow shocks and tadpole-shaped proplyds.

This #nebula is one of many #nebulae in space, or the #universe, and it is called the #orion nebula. This image of the #orionnebula is an example of #astrophotography or #spaceporn, which involves taking #spacepics, captured by an #astrophotographer or #astrophotographers. This image is #beautiful, #wonderful, and #awesome, and it’s intriguing for #curious and #discovery oriented people. Nebulae are made of #galaxies, the plural of #galaxy, and #stardust. This #video is a #cgi recreation of the real thing, inspired by #highquality imagery. #nasa and #spacex conduct research on similar things, and nasa uses its #hubbletelescope to do so. The #hubble #telescope has captured many beautiful #celestial objects, including our very own #milkywaygalaxy. The #milkyway is not in this video, but the #constellation Orion is.

  • Here we go again, Tim (@astroaddict_) Richter from Germany, with another deep sky image for @universetoday! No time to waste, let's get started:⁠
⁠
You might be very familiar with this object. But maybe not in this color scheme. M42 - The Orion Nebula. One of the most popular deep sky objects, for a good reason.⁠
⁠
Ever since i got into this hobby two years ago, i always wanted to shoot this amazing Nebula, and the first try already blew me away. Shot through a guided 102/714 APO refractor, with an astro-modified Canon 750Da. I stacked about 2 hours of three minute exposures, at an ISO of 800.⁠
⁠
I an all night marathon, i processed this HDR nightmare into a decent looking image. While playing around with HLS color schemes, i stumbled over this; not natural; but just cool looking mapping. True color looks great, but it's always good to extend your horizons 😉⁠
⁠
Most of the stacking and editing was done in AstroPixelProcessor, with some tweaking in Photoshop.⁠
⁠
I will post again once more, with a important message for everyone, included in an image consisting out of lots and lots of pixels :D⁠

  • “To a mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.”
-Lao Tzu

Capturing the beauty of the stars, galaxies, and nebulas has been a dream of mine for a long time. Living in Bangkok, stars were a rare sight. So, being able to do this telescope was truly been an experience of a lifetime. Pictured here is the Great Orion Nebula or Messier 42 located 1344 light years away from Earth.

  • Made a fun little star chart for work, you all get the sneak peek on how to find the Orion Nebula, Hyades, and Pleiades! Just look east a little after sunset to spot them all! (you can look now even though it says January). You can see all three with your unaided eye (the Orion Nebula will look like a “weird fuzzy star), but grab binoculars to get amazing views of all three! They are some of my top things to observe.

  • The First Orion of the season caption goes here!

Pic by @s.aspinall 
Since photographing the Rho Ophiuchi complex with a few trees in April, I've been hooked on finding telephoto compositions of the night sky. Unfortunately, the rest of the summer proved to be a wash. A busy work schedule, combined with some of the worst astrophotography weather I've ever experienced, meant I wasn't able to get out and photograph the night sky much. So, I turned my sights to the fall and the appearance of Orion and some other fairly juicy night sky features. This was one of the the compositions I wanted to grab. We were even blessed with some nice snow cover a week before the photo, so I was really looking forward to getting out! Fast forward a warm week with some rain, and the Saskatchewan landscape was rendered brown once again. I decided it was still worth getting out and least giving it an attempt. Overall, I'm happy with how it turned out, considering I had to battle some camera shake in post processing (the wind caused the telephoto to vibrate, making my stars huge). Crossing my fingers for some snow and calm weather and I just might try this again! 
EXIF Nikon D800e w/ Tamron 70-200 @ 105mm
Sky (14 exposures out of 32 shot used to stack for noise reduction. The other 18 were trashed with wind shake): 2 minutes, f4, ISO1600
Foreground: 3 minutes, f4, ISO800

  • For this week's Takeover Sunday, we invited ⁠Danny Maller ( @dso.m42 ) to introduce himself and talk about a few of his astrophotos. ⁠
⁠
@dso.m42 here again sharing my last post of the day which is my 11th attempt at imaging M42 – The Orion Nebula. It is one of the most photographed objects in the night sky due to its size and magnitude making it an excellent target for amateur astrophotographers. Located within our own Milky Way Galaxy at a distance of over 1,300 light years and width of 24ly, our moon still appears ~20% smaller from our perspective on Earth.⁠
—⁠
At the center of M42 a white luminous core known as the Trapezium functions as a stellar nursery where new stars are formed within the chaotic mix of dense colliding gases and high temperatures. Once formed, the stars within the nebula emit a stream of charged particles known as a stellar wind that forces the surrounding nebula to expand. It is because of the Trapezium core that the surrounding gaseous matter is visible and is what defines this Messier object as a diffuse nebula.⁠
