astrophotography Photos & Videos

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.

Revolver - I’ve done star trails here before using my old GoPro Hero 4, but never with my Sony camera until now. The advantage of this location is being within walking distance of my house and I can enjoy a nice cold beer whilst sitting on the bench here whilst my camera is doing its thing. 150 shots at f/2.8 ISO 320 30 seconds with plane trails removed. You can see the original unedited version in my story: #sonyvisuals #sonyalphasclub #sonyimages #sonyalpha #1ukshot #ig_shutternights #startrails #bbceastmidlands #weownthenight_uk #uk_spinners #Nocturnal_Visionaries #nightphotography #startrailchasers #ig_nightphotography #long_exposure_pics #StarstaX #igpodium_night #1UKshot #nightphotography #nightimages #shotsofresh #uk_shooters #astrophotography #longexpoelite #staffsskies #longexposure_shots #capture4cubes #nightphotography_exclusive #shotsofresh Taken with Sony α6000 with Samyang 12mm lens

Follow @spaceviral for more awesome space shots like this! 😍⠀ -⠀ A black hole is a region of space within which the force of gravity is so strong, not even light can escape.⠀⠀ -⠀⠀ 🚀✨ For the sake of science, would you go inside a black hole?⠀⠀ -⠀⠀ The existence of such objects was first suggested as far back as the late 1700s. However, it was Karl Schwarzschild (1873-1916), a German astronomer, who basically developed the modern idea for a black hole. Using Einstein’s theory of general relativity, Schwarzschild discovered that matter compressed to a point (now known as a singularity) would be enclosed by a spherical region of space from which nothing could escape. The limit of this region is called the event horizon, a name which signifies that it is impossible to observe any event taking place inside it (since information is unable to get out). This particular photo is of Gargantua, the black hole premised in the Sci-Fi hit film “Interstellar”.⠀⠀ -⠀⠀ Credits: @bosplanet ⠀⠀ -⠀⠀ #Nightsky #elonmusk #planet #cosmology #stars #milkyway #nasa #astronomy #astronaut #space #galaxy #cosmos #nebula #universe #astrophotography #hubble #science #solarsystem #nature #spacex #iss #telescope #interstellar #nasabeyond #astrophysics #esa #constellation #neildegrassetyson #rocket #outerspace

The first time I attempted astro photography was in Banff. We were trying to catch the stars when suddenly the train was coming!! My settings were not ready for this shot and I just tried to fix them the best I could without knowing If it was even going to work. When I looked at the result I was so surprised with what came up, and here it is. . . . . #gramslayers #thedarkpr0ject #filmtronic #all2epic #igtones #nocturnal_visionaries #MoodyGrams #visualmobs #ourmoodydays #enter_imagination #hypebeast #visualambassadors #ig_color #sombresociety #trappingtones #way2ill #createcommune #yngkillers #kill3rtones #visual_creatorz #illgammerz #theimagined #fatalframez #vancouvervibez #artofvisuals #eclectic_shotz #longexposure_shots #lighttrails #astrophotography

After a grueling 12 hours of hiking up 3000ft with a hundred lb pack full of camera gear, food, water and supplies (keep in mind I am only 114lb) I decided to set up my North Face tent roughly 50 feet from the peak. It probably took me half an hour just to angle it right as I kept running back and forth making sure the tent was going to be under the North Star during the night. I took a nap in around 9 p.m. 12:03 a.m. My alarm went off, with my squinty eyes I could I could make out a very peaceful calm movement through my tent, it took me a second to realize what was happening and that's when I jumped up grabbed my camera gear and set up for the show! I planned for everything except the Aurora that night I think that's what makes the shot so special to me.

For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream. ~ Vincent Van Gogh ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ Most people who visit #balancerock will do so during the day. But at night (or at 5 am) when the park stands quite, alone, with nothing but the stars to see, that is when her beauty of Balance Rock really shines. ⭐ ⭐ #mountainpostliving #gardenofthegods #astrophotography #starynight #rockformations #coloradosprings #landscape_capture #goodnightmoon #jamiwithaneye #beautyisintheeyeofthebeholder #fortcarson #naturesbeauty

After 5 nights, we must unfortunately concede defeat - the Aurora Borealis eluded us and eluded us well :( I debated long and hard about whether or not to bring my DSLR and opted for my phone (as it has a decent manual mode) with a little gorilla pod for ease of travel. While it didn't capture any northern lights, the fact that it's capable of astro-photography at all completely and utterly blows me away. 30 second exposure, ISO of 400 and some loving in Lightroom, and this is the end result. Well played LG V30, well played 👏👏👏 . . #travel #photography #astrophotography #sadface #nexttime #takenonmyphone #phone #camera #tourist #experiment #stoked #nature #sky #night #nighttime #alaska #northernlights #aurora #aurorahunting #gobsmacked #trees #forest #snow #winter #stars #lg #longexposure

Repost @astro_filo -------- 🎆Uno spettacolo pirotecnico quello che ci offre la Nebulosa Gum 29. Il gigantesco gruppo di circa 3.000 stelle, chiamato Westerlund 2, e situato in un affollato allevamento stellare a circa 20.000 anni luce di distanza dalla Terra nella costellazione di Carina. . 🎆The brilliant tapestry of young stars flaring to life resembles a glittering fireworks display at the heart of Nebula Gum 29. The giant cluster of about 3,000 stars, called Westerlund 2, resides in a raucous stellar breeding ground located 20,000 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Carina. ___________________________________________________ Follow for more: @astro_filo @astronomiainpillole ___________________________________________________ . . . . . #space #nasa #interstellar #scuolazoo #scienzagram #galaxy #cosmos #astronomy #amazing #cosmology #naturelovers #nature #esa #moon #hubbletelescope #universe #planet #astrophisics #roskosmos #nasabeyond #science #constellation #shuttle #satellite #hubble #astrophotography #picoftheday #astronomy #nebula #scuola --------

~ last night most of the world saw a stunning blood moon and the longest total lunar eclipse we will see this century.  But here in the UK we experienced a stormy end to weeks of unusually hot temperatures, and clouds obscured the celestial phenomenon. . So for those who didn't see the moon last night and are feeling as disappointed as I am, here's my photo of the supermoon lunar eclipse of 28th September 2015 for us to enjoy! . #beautifulnature #england #fiftyshades_of_nature #nature #naturelove #naturelovers #naturephotography #naturepics #naturesbeauty #natureshots #shropshire #uk #astrophotography #cosmos #fullmoon #lunar #lunareclipse #milkyway #moon #moonlight #moonphotography #moonscape #nightphotography #nightsky #supermoon #supermoonlunareclipse #totallunareclipse #peaceandlove #plur #trancefamily
