One more from the spectacular new moon night sky we had last week in Sagada. This view is roughly the opposite direction (northwards) as the last two photos and has the Andromeda galaxy visible above right of center. This was shot on a 14mm f2.8 and heavily corrected and cropped for perspective.
Orion falls to the Western sky as the night turns to day. May not look it but it was absolutely freezing. Something like 25° windchill. The small chip in my windshield quickly grew to a large crack as we cranked the heater and raced back Northeast to our lives in the city.
The Rosette Nebula. Another work in progress. Weather has not really wanted to cooperate to much lately 😕 About 5 1/2 hours of hydrogen alpha. ———————————————The Rosette Nebula (also known as Caldwell 49) is a large spherical H II region (circular in appearance) located near one end of a giant molecular cloud in the Monoceros region of the Milky Way Galaxy. The open cluster NGC 2244 (Caldwell 50) is closely associated with the nebulosity, the stars of the cluster having been formed from the nebula's matter.———————————————Equipment Asi1600mm cool camera, #celestronrocks CGX Mount.

Hello, my name is Herbert @catching_airglow from Austria, Salzburg. I am very honored and delighted to have the opportunity to take over @universetoday. Thanks to Fraser and @universetoday for allowing me to share some of my favourite photos with you!
This is my final post for today. For sure you can remember there was a lunar eclipse last summer in august. I was very excited because i had never an opportunity before to shoot photos of an event like this. Added to that there was a conjunction with planet mars. In preparation i learned that the milkyway will be better visible during the eclipse. So i decided to made an composition of the moon AND the milkyway. Here you can see the result, i hope u like it!
Thank you guys for following me along this day, it was a pleasure for me and i hope for you as well. Please follow me at @catching_airglow for more photos to come. Clear skies and good bye!

Messier 76 - The Little Dumbbell Nebula

Describe M76 in 3 words 👇
The nebula lies at an approximate distance of 2,500 light years from Earth in the constellation Perseus. M76 was formed when a Sun-like star ran out of fuel in a late stage of its life and then expelled its outer layers. The expelled material was then heated by the radiation of the stellar remnant, producing the glowing clouds that we see as the nebula. The clouds will disperse over the next several thousand years and the central white dwarf will eventually cool and fade away.

On Earth, the year is determined by the amount of time it takes for the planet to orbit around the Sun; that is, every 365 days. However, the Milky Way needs a little more time: around 250 million years. In other words, we have completed a quarter of a single orbit since the dinosaurs became extinct.
Descriptions of the Solar System rarely mention that it rotates through space, as well as everything else. In fact, we are traveling at approximately 792,000 kilometers per hour in relation to the center of the Milky Way. Each time the Sun revolves around the Milky Way, it is said that a galactic year, or cosmic year, has been completed. It is estimated that there have only been 18 galactic years in the history of our Sun. | 📸By: @jsn_pdog
