That is breath takeing!!!

I'll be seeing the very same at the end of this month. On the 24th I'm leaving for a 3 week vacation across the country. One of the things I'll be doing is going out to the middle of the desert just to see the night sky.

That is beautiful, I watched it like 93 times.
So into the dark rift we go?

Where can I buy a camera like this? The specs say it was modified so I'm not sure where I would start

It was modified by taking the IR filter out of the camera. That increases its sensitivity to red hydrogen alpha nebulae. This isn't essential to getting milky way images, but it does make them prettier. My image was shot with an unmodified Canon XTi. You can purchase ready-made modified Canon cameras from Hutech:
www.sciencecenter.net...
(they'll also modify your camera for you if you have one, it's not recommended that you attempt it yourself as a mistake can leave you with a broken camera very easily).

Simply breath taking. Thanks for sharing this with us. It's always wonderful to view something that is both awe inspiring and humbling at the same time. Star for you.

Thought I would post a pic of the center here on the thread...



Coutesy of astrosurf.com



Look how many stars are in that pic........It makes the background almost white and blocks out most black.....Thats how many stars are just in that portion of just our galaxy.

And considering how many galaxies there are it's ignorant to think we are alone.


But besides that, that pic and the Video are amazing and one of the most beautiful things I have ever witnessed.


Star and flag for you.... I'd give you 500 if I could.

And yes sometimes less is more.


Question:

If we are heading towards the center, does that mean we will be in balance?

And if balance is the key to everything then would we not be closer to being our true selves?

I'm pretty sure it is impossible to see the center of the Milky Way from Earth



We just saw it though and if you watched the video and looked at the pic, then you just saw it .

How do you explain that?

I've just checked out cameras here at work and none of them have the ability to set the shutter speed

Looks like I'll have to buy a nice camera afterall. But still, at least then I'll have a nice camera

So the whole theory about 2012 and earth at the galactic center is a great big lie or severe misunderstanding ... right?

Can someone please help me?

This morning from 2:30am until 4:30am I was photographing a very strange object in the sky. It appeared to be a red star, so I went inside and got my camera, my best zoom lens and a tripod. I shot approximately 60 pictures of the sky (about 30 of this object). The object remained stationary the entire time other than the typical movement of the heavens throughout the night sky due to the Earth's rotation. I have been examining these pictures all day and this thing defies explanation as far as I can tell. I blew up one of the pictures of this thing and found that it is in fact accompanied by two spheres one is red and one is gray and another unidentifiable object. I tried to start a post to ask for you people's opinion as to what it was; however the files are too large.

I am a psychologist not a photographer (that is a hobby) and I have no idea how to make the image sizes smaller. Can anyone help me out with some advice?

These were taken with a digital Nikon SLR using a Nikkor 70-300 zoom. I used a tripod and my shutter speed was 1 and 3 seconds. I am absolutely certain that if I am somehow able to get these uploaded to the site, that you people will be shocked and amazed. This is like nothing I have ever seen in my life.

Any help anyone can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like antares. I'd love to get my hands on the original images to see how much they could processed through stacking, though at 1-2 seconds I don't know how much contextual information the images will have in terms of other stars. The number of images is promising; did you happen to save them in a raw format? I'd load all the similar images of the star into deep sky stacker and stack them to see what you can get out of it:

Living in Hollywood, California I would be lucky if I saw more then a dozen stars in the sky at any given night. Light pollution here is at an all time high.

This is truly stunning.
