2/4 - Trebarwith Strange Web:www.nightskies.mattstansfield.comInstagram: @mstansfieldMy second image from Trebarwith Strand last weekend. After getting the traditional composition, I switched my 14mm with my trusted 35mm to emphasise the sky and Milky Way.As always, questions, shares and comment welcome. ======================================#cornwall#astronomy#yousnoozeyoulose#visitengland#nightphotography#nationaltrust#wonderful_places#best_skyshots#beautifuldestinations#earthpix#exploremore#witns#uk_nightphotography#amazing_skyshotz#mycanon#swisbest#addicted_to_nights#nasagalexyplanet#natgeospace#timelessuniverse#fantastic_universe#nightimages#ig_bliss#ifollowcornwall#walkingcornwall#hellocornwalluk#liveforthestory#trebarwithstrand#samyanglens

06 Dec 2019. Hope Through the Smoke🔥 💨 For a few weeks now, my city of Sydney, Australia, has been affected by smoke from bushfires burning on the city’s outskirts, and beyond. The daily cycle has become that of a deep red sunrise, followed by hours of yellowed skies, brought to a close by a setting sun that is even redder than when it began the morning. On a typical day, the Moon only takes on an orange hue when close the horizon, beaming with a distinctive white glow for the majority of its hours overhead. For many on Australia’s eastern coast, though, we now see an orange-red moon while ever the rocky satellite is visible in the night sky. 🌓 Tonight (5th December), I took a short drive and did my best to shoot some photos that showed off this smoke-stained visage of Earth’s nearest neighbour. Wanting to capture images that weren’t merely the orange Moon against the hazy sky, I spent time looking for something to bring some perspective, and hope, to the scene. These lights on the Christmas tree at the St Andrews Anglican Church at Cronulla were happy to emit their lively colours to brighten the eerie night.📷For this single-frame photograph, I used my Canon EOS 6D Mk II camera, a Sigma 50-500mm f/5.6 lens @ 500 mm @ f/16, using an exposure time of 1/100 of a second @ ISO 6400.

Beautiful shot by @van__nibThis is the most detailed shot of the galaxy that @saraherichardson_ and I have taken so far. We are still nowhere near being close to pros. However, we are excited to carry out our latest method of imaging for the galaxy through the next Milky Way season of 2020.This is is final result of five images that have been stacked for noise reduction. They have then been used for the forground, and (a single exposure) for the sky. Both images were then edited separately using Lightroom. Finally, the images were blended together with Photoshop.______________________________________• 📸• Sony A6000• Samyang 12mm F2• Sky: ISO 3200 / F2.5 / 20 Seconds• Fg: ISO 1000 / F2.5 / 50 Seconds 5x____________________________________

Matteo Norcia here (@astrofellow) signing off with my third and final post to end my UniverseToday Takeover.The Heart Nebula.“When you’re in love, you want to tell the world.” -Carl SaganI’d like to take the opportunity, with this photo so fitting, to say, once again, how much I love this hobby. I am going to try my hardest to turn it into a career, as I have finally found what I want to do for the rest of my life.When I’m out there tracking down objects that are billions, trillions, quadrillions of miles away, capturing them, then going home to edit and stare at the hidden beauty in my images I am overcome with a joy that I have never felt before. Happiness filled with pride, in seeing my work and knowing that I accomplished it. That I put the time and effort in for the final result. That I am striving to perfect this craft, and seeing my progress along the way.When I reveal the wonders behind the darkness, and see what lies within the photograph, a feeling of home surfaces.If anyone has an interest in this, give me a follow and I will share my knowledge and my advice. (:@astrofellow It was my pleasure to share my photos with you all! How honored I feel! Thank you so much for viewing!--------------The Heart is an emission nebula, and lies about 7,500 light-years away from Earth, in the constellation Cassiopeia. From end to end it is some 330 light-years across.The intense and beautiful glow of red light is due to its most prominent element of hydrogen within the nebula. Located in the center of the Heart is a cluster of young stars. A few of those stars are nearly 50 times the mass of our Sun!--------------166 x 60s exposures (2h 46m total) at 2000 ISO under a RI Bortle 4 sky, 32 darks and 35 flats, with an unmodded Nikon D7100, William Optics Z61, on a Skyguider Pro--------------#astronomy#astrophotography#stargazing#nasa#outerspace#nebula#astrophoto#milkywaychasers#natgeospace#creativephotography#nightshooters#nikonusa#telescope#deepspace#astronomer#timelessuniverse#astrography#igworldclub_astrophotography#astrosprout#cool_capture_#checkthisout#heartshaped#photographylovers#apod#universe#exploreamerica#cosmos#wonder

Club member @bobcoorsenphotography is one of our many members who enjoy night photography. Here is what Bob has to say - A Test of Time- The Milky Way is one of the most amazing marvels  to see much less photograph.  And to think over 87% of the world population has never seen it due to light pollution.  This is why I just can’t get enough to capture it so other can see it especially with an incredible foreground. There is this old tree I found in Utah and wanted to two paired together to show our perceptions of time is only relative.———————————————-#nightphotography#LTPC#milkyway#utah#astrophotography#longexpo#longexposurephotography#longexpoelite#deadtrees#utahnights#nightsky#utahphitographer#astrophotographer#milkywaychasers#timelessuniverse#universetoday#youpic_astrophotography

"Spaceship"After 10:22 hours of night flight, the light dome along the European coast of the Black Sea is greating the tired aviators. Home is slowly coming closer, but still a long 2h30min away. Before the flight is over, full concentration will once more be needed, as the last is also one of the most challenging parts of the flight: approach and landing.Airborne astrophotography is similar: It is almost as challenging, yields good results with the right technique and smooth conditions definately make life easier.Incorporating the flight instruments is even more complicated: The dynamic range of such a scene is pretty wide. Even fully dimmed, the flight instruments are much brighter then the night sky outside and the illuminated buttons produce reflections in the windows. Furthermore, the depth of field is huge, spanning from the very close glareshield to the infinity of space.A single exposure cannot capture the whole scene in good quality. I therefore blended a two step focus stack for the flight deck with a third, longer exposure focused on the stars.EXIF Canon EOS 6D astro modifiedTamron 15-30mm f/2.8Spaceship: Boeing 777-300ERFlight Deck:2 image focus stack of 1/8s @ ISO12800 f/2.8Sky:Single exposure of 5s @ ISO12800 f/2.8#NightScaper#astrophotography#nightsky#newmilkyway#starphotography#milkyway#nightphotography_exclusive#astrophoto#astrophotography#astrophotographer#longexposureoftheday#natgeospace#supreme_nightshots#nightview#starrynight#starscape#timelessuniverse#fantastic_universe#night_excl#nightphotographypros#longexpo_addiction#super_photolongexpo#astrography_#universetoday#thenakedsingularity#amateurastrophotorapyezine#aviation#aviationphotography#pilotsview#cockpitview

04 Dec 2019. Windmilky Way👋 🎄 With the Milky Way’s galactic core now in the part of the sky where the sun is, it’s time to edit and post photos that I’ve shot throughout 2019 but not yet published. I will still try to get out and photograph the night magic of our southern summer, but with the craziness that leads up to Christmas, I’ll probably have lots of family and work commitments to keep me otherwise occupied. 🚙During one of my trips to the farmlands of Goulburn, Australia, back in April, I shot the twelve photos that make up this vertical panorama of the Milky Way rising over and dwarfing the old windmill on Braidwood Road. I’m still surprised at how much of the fine details of our galaxy’s dust lanes and dark nebulae I managed to capture with exposure times of only 6.0 seconds per shot. I didn’t use any image stacking, but I did make sure that my lens was focussed as sharply as I could get it!📷Rather than post the tall and narrow pano on its own, I used the iOS app “PNGRM” to create the zoom-and-pan effect video. I photographed the original twelve single-frame images using my Canon EOS 6D Mk II camera, a Yongnuo 50mm f/1.4 lens @ f/1.4, with an exposure time of 6.0 seconds @ ISO 6400. For the photo nerds, no, I didn’t use a panoramic head, I used good old guestimation to get the right coverage of the field of view.

Stars’ lights travel a long time after they die, we can never tell from those shiny stars in the sky, which one is dead, or which one is alive!! Life itself is a mystery which we could never know with certainty, what the truth is!.⭐️⭐️🖤🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️.#stars#night#black#darkness#blackandwhite#lights#reflection#worldtravelpics#vintage#villages#beautifuldestinations#mytinyatlas#mystery#instaphoto#amazing#wonderful#landscape#moon#fullmoon#timelessuniverse#universe#nightscape#nightscapes#nightsky#sky#tbt#tb#silhouette#meditate#god
