Andromeda by ErnstGamauf

The Andromeda Galaxy (also known as Messier 31, M31, or NGC 224, is a spiral galaxy approximately 780 kiloparsecs (2.5 million light-years) from Earth. It is the nearest major galaxy to the Milky Way and was often referred to as the Great Andromeda Nebula in older texts. It received its name from the area of the sky in which it appears, the constellation of Andromeda, which was named after the mythological princess Andromeda. Being approximately 220,000 light years across, it is the largest galaxy of the Local Group, which also contains the Milky Way, the Triangulum Galaxy, and about 44 other smaller galaxies.

22 shots taken with the Nikon D810a and the awesome Nikkor 300mm f/2.8. Astro processing with the famous Austrian expert Thomas Henne.

The darkness

I have spent years learning how to chase images in the dark. Crawling over rocks, climbing mountains, wading through water, dodging cows, sheep, emu’s, kangaroos, camels and bulls all under the blanket of darkness with nothing but a headlight as my lonely savior. You name it and I feel like I have had to do it at some point.

In this lonely corner of the world I was, again, alone in the dark.

I had arrived at Kelvedon a little after 11pm. It was bone chilling with the wind chill well (well) below zero. All around me was light from waning crescent moon and a quick check of my galaxies map showed that once this moon set, I would presented with a glorious milky way.

I had the gear to keep me warm and nowhere better to be so there was really only one option.

After setting up my tent close by I stumbled around the water’s edge trying to predict a perfect composition for a milky way that wasn’t yet visible. I chose my location, shot my foreground and waited. Cold. Alone and in the dark.

View large and, as always, thanks for looking!

Blood Moon 2015 – View From Switzerland by YuriFineart

HOW I TOOK THE PHOTO:

Taken with the canon 600d and a Tamron 70-300mm at 300mm (480mm Full Frame equivalent). I put the camera on a tripod, set the lens to 300mm and aimed at the Moon. I played around with a bunch of ISO and shutter speed combinations but ended up liking following settings: 2.0s F5.6 ISO 3200 the best. I also made sure I was in mirror lockup mode, had a 10s timer and i stood back a few feet every time i pressed the shutter. I would have gone wider than 5.6 but unfortunately that’s the widest this lens will go, in addition I’ve cropped the photo a bit after taking it. P.S you really have to set the focus manually and get it right by trial and error but luckily i managed to get a perfectly sharp shot of the supermoon!

Trying something different in my gallery, now that i am able to capture some decent milky way. Didn’t try with this image to make a realistic one; just playing with the milky way. Blended to do it 3 different photos of my sotck photos.

Thanks for your visit and have a nice weekend

Probando alguna cosilla nueva, ahora que puedo sacar alguna vía láctea decente.. Esta imagen no tiene la pretensión de ser algo realista… simplemente tenía ganas de hacer algo con la vía láctea. Lo hice fusionando 3 fotografías que había en el disco duro.

Gracias por vuestra visita, saludos y buen fin de semana a todos
