Blue Horsehead reflection nebula from Negev Desert: a test run with 2-panel mosaic left me much less data than planned.
This complex of beautiful, dusty reflection nebulae lies in the constellation Scorpius along the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy. Its overall outline suggests a horsehead in profile, though it covers a much larger region than the better known Horsehead Nebula of Orion. The star near the eye of the horse is embedded in blue reflection nebula IC 4592 over 400 light-years away. Toward the top right, near the horse's ear, is another striking bluish reflection nebula, IC 4601. The characteristic blue hue of reflection nebulae is caused by the tendency of interstellar dust to more strongly scatter blue starlight.

As #thegreatmilkywaychase enters its home stretch, God knows how many miles we've put in, 4 new tires, 2 broken tripods, the loss of my grandmother, 6 nights with crap weather, lots of steamy muggy indiana nights. I've taken away a heckuva experience, tons of new friends and ideas. Everyone who participated in this is a different breed. Kudos to each and every one of you. Home stretch people let's get it!

Dün gece ilk kez bu şekilde bir çekim yapmayı denedim.. Yoldan geçen araçların ışıkları her karede farklı ışık ve renk tonu oluşturdu ama en son ortak bir renkte bu şekilde birleştirdim fotoğrafları.
Toplam 20 fotoğraftı panorama için çektiğim. Birde şu üç ağacı başka bir fotoğraftan ekledim:) Sonuç bu şekilde bir fotoğraf oldu...

Pırıl pırıl parlayan sevgili galaksimiz..
These are the clouds of the Rho Ophiuci molecular complex, captured from some of the darkest skies in the US. The blue nebula to the left of the more commonly imaged nebula is called the blue horsehead nebula, although I really don’t see a horse here at all. This general area of the sky is really really diverse, so many astrophotographers consider it the best thing to take pictures of. Anyways hope y’all are having a nice Father’s Day, and let me know what you think :) ps thx @blazing_heavens for setting up my camera so I could go to sleep earlier
Hello everyone, my name is @adamdavidrivera and it is a sincere honor to be given the privilege of a takeover on @universetoday I have been photographing the night sky for 4 years now and I am delighted to share my story.
When I was a young boy I remember reading astronomy today magazine and ingesting all of those deep space photos, becoming inspired. I thought to myself, one day, I will be an astrophotographer.
Fast forward 25 years, This is a star trail image I captured at Montauk Point Lighthouse in the summer of 2015. Runing away hours from NYC light pollution is a must to get any astrophotography done in that state. This image is a stacked/blend of 300 photographs. 300 out of roughly 500 in a timelapse I produced. At the time, I had not often seen star trails looking in any direction other than Polaris, especially not toward the core of our Milky Way, so I thought I'd put a spin on the norm.
If you are interested in my workflow or learning to shoot the night sky on your own, DM me and I will be happy to assist you.
