Hello Everyone! My name is Petr and I'd like to thank @universetoday for this amazing opportunity to share a few pictures from my gallery at @starphotography.ig I'm from Prague, Czech Republic (any Czechs here?) and currently living in Toronto, Canada. My usually observed and photographed targets are the Moon and the Sun, combined with occasional widefield views and DSO experiments using remotely controlled telescopes. It continues to fascinate me how accessible has amateur astronomy become and what can be achieved even with modest knowledge and equipment! The first one up is our Moon and what was just a camera test. Two single frames stitched together. But I was still very impressed :) Date: June 19, 2018 Equipment: Celestron NexStar 4SE, ZWO ASI224MC #waxingcrescent #moon #celestron #telescope #lunarphotography #astrophotography #astronomy #space Want to be featured?

A runaway star lights the Flaming Star Nebula in this cosmic scene. Otherwise known as IC 405, the Flaming Star Nebula's billowing interstellar clouds of gas and dust lie about 1,500 light-years away toward the constellation of Auriga. AE Aurigae, the bright star at upper left in the frame, is a massive and intensely hot O-type star moving rapidly through space, likely ejected from a collision of multiple star-systems in the vicinity of the Orion Nebula millions of years ago. Now close to IC 405, the high-speed star's ionizing ultraviolet radiation powers the visible reddish glow as the nebula's hydrogen atoms are stripped of their electrons and recombine. Its intense blue starlight is reflected by the nebula's dusty filaments. Like all massive stars AE Aurigae will be short-lived though, furiously burning through its supply of fuel for nuclear fusion and exploding as a supernova. The colorful telescopic snapshot spans about 5 light-years at the estimated distance of the Flaming Star Nebula.

Nebulosa del casco de Thor: NGC 2359, nebulosa de emisión en Canis Major. Recorté y giré la zona del "casco" para que se aprecie el parecido. (Me recuerda más al casco de Loki) #Astrofotografía #Astrophotography C11 (f/2). ASI174MC. Autor: @Bor_Alurin.
