Cool! I can just about make out Cassiopeia in the bottom left but that looks like it was one mighty cold photo shoot. Is that a stacked multi-shot image or just a single shot at a highish ISO?

It was insanely cold. 25 below. It's a single shot with iso of 1600 and exposure of 25 seconds. That was quickly processed when I got home last night around 3 am. So I'll most likely go through and redo it.

Hey there seems to be some large pixels in the lower left corner, is that from the exposure or the quick processing?

You take some great shots, my buddy ripped your image of the city lights and is using it as a wallpaper for his tablet.

Most likely its from the quick processing. Part of the issue is that at the bottom of the mountain is a lake and because it was so cold last night there was insane fog coming off of the lake so that threw off the bottom of the shot. I have another 30 or so shots to process from last night. Glad your buddy likes it

Nice thread!
As an amateur photographer i sometimes like to point my camera to the sky and try to capture the night.
Astro photography can be easy and to cheap with just a dslr and tripod( starry nightscapes, startrails, moonshots,...) up to very expensive and time consuming with scopes and tracking devices for deep space photography, timelapse,... all depending on what your objectives are and what output quality you desire.

For the moment i prefer to keep it cheap and use the time to enjoy just looking at the night sky.
This is an image of the milky way from several years back i wanted to share.

If I remember the camera data correct,
the settings were, 30 sec exposure at f4, iso 3200
It's titled, electric universe.





I'd have to say, this is my favorite pic.

On my daughters birthday, there is going to be a meteor shower, can't remember the name.
However, where I plan on going, we will be able to see the same thing.
I keep trying to get her away from the I pod, and I phone and realize there is way more out there in nature, and it is true beauty. maybe some day she will realize it.

Love all the pics to. I just wish I could do something like that.

Mt Stanton Panorama, Glacier National Park. A lot of people have asked why the picture looks so noisy or fuzzy and out of focus at the bottom. The reason for that is that when I was doing this set of photos it was 25 below zero out which caused fog/steam to come up from the waters surface in some areas. Personally I like the effect it adds to the image.

Okay this one is awesome, how perfect is that star right there in the valley?

Thanks! It was something else. Never seen a single star that bright giving off such a reflection. I wished I would have had my tablet with me last night. Would love to know what that was.

I think it's probably Vega rising - I think I can see Mizar and Alcor in the top rightish corner which puts it in about the right place.

Here is another shot from the last time I was out. I was waiting for the moon to go down so I took a quick shot. Temp was -25 and the steam as you can see was really starting to come off the lake. The next day the lake would be totally frozen over which hasn't happened in 20 plus years.

Here is another shot from the last time I was able to get out. Since then we've had nothing but winter storms

As an observer at this time, I must say that your pictures take me beyond my earthly existence...and I thank you for that.

This is my first contribution to this thread. Probably odd considering my major but I tend to not take pretty pictures but gather data. That said, I found this one stunning.

Apologies for the B & W image. I may post this again with the color filters. This was taken by me last night, remotely using the 1.2 meter UK Science and Engineering Research Council's Schmidt Reflector in Australia.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the two stars of the Zeta Reticuli widely separated binary system:



Like I said I may post this again in color. You can just about make out the slight color difference between the two in the color image.

My thing isn't taking pretty pictures though, you all do a much better job of that with much more modest telescopes. My thing is using telescopes to gather lightcurves and spectra for further analysis.

Great shot! I sometimes wish I could take deep space shots.

I doubt my wife would ever see me again in the evenings if I had a 1.2 metre scope to play with! Great shot anyhow.
