Star trails
Night to remember :)

I’m just out here trying to understand how views like this are possible, ya know? How are we as humans, able to behold something like this otherworldly place. Rockies in the foreground, a Milky Way on top, and pure silence all around. How did we get here?

A year ago, I was busy making final preparations for our eclipse trip. In honor of this upcoming 1 year anniversary, I'll be posting several images from that day that I haven't shared before, as well as a few that I have.
This was the very first shot I took after the moon began to move in front of the sun, or "first contact". I was so happy to see that there were sunspots that day. It meant that getting a perfect focus much easier than if the surface were bare!

Beautiful evening last night amongst some old prairie shrines. Despite the Canada fires drowning out our skies, Mars and Venus joined began to peek through as the orange moon said its goodbyes for the night. Thanks for keeping me company @emmadette

Hey everyone! Once more, I'm Riley (@rileybregar) and here's my last image that I'll be sharing today as part of today's takeover of @universetoday! Thank you so much for the opportunity to share my favorite photos with fellow night sky enthusiasts!

Straying away from the always-amazing Milky Way captures, this image was taken on a pleasant April night in Sedona, Arizona. With the nearby residences soundly resting, I was in a state of complete serenity this evening. While leisurely hiking this very popular trail, I took many opportunities to stop, look around, and appreciate my surroundings. Most notably, the early summer night sky was glowing as beautifully as I had ever seen. To add to the picturesque scene above, the legendary red sandstone formations of the Sedona desert were an obvious choice for an interesting foreground. Even more, the native desert vegetation that defines this area added an even more eye-catching addition to a photo composition. Lit with the screen of my iPhone, this agave turned out to be the centerpiece of one of my favorite photos that I've so far taken. The image is a great representation of my favorite aspects of photography: landscape, long exposure, and with the use of an ultra wide lens, successfully capturing a close-up foreground, a beautiful background, and the sky in one shot.
Thank you very much for checking out my photos and for following this awesome page! For more documentation of my nighttime (and daytime) adventures, visit my page @rileybregar. :) Sony a7

Dead in the center you can see #Saturn as a bright white ball of light. To the right and below sits a pink region, the gorgeous #Lagoon #Nebula, north of that you can see the pink and blue #Trifid Nebula along with many other objects.

The "yellowness" of this image isn't light pollution, its countless millions of ancient #stars, all reds and yellows, so numerous that my camera can't split them in to stars, but just the glow from them all.

Nikon D300, 70mm lens, f/4.5, ISO1600, 60s exposure. Mount NEQ6 - no polar alignment, tracking.

Hi again! Riley (@rileybregar) here, back with my second post of the day.
As the new year came and months past, the Galactic Core came more and more visible. Taken near the Desert View lookout in Grand Canyon National Park, this single shot was created in July of 2018. Before this night, I had never visited the South Rim of the GC, so I really had little frame of reference for where I might successfully capture the canyon and night sky. After wandering around for awhile, I found my way to the endpoint of a trail, on the ledge of the canyon. As the moon set and the overcast weather cleared, the night sky and the always enthralling Milky Way revealed themselves to me in amazing detail. With virtually zero light pollution, I was able to capture a few decent images, including this self-portrait, where I'm standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon and reaching up to "touch" the MW. I couldn't have asked for a better composition to have stumbled upon during this beautiful solo adventure!

The warp effect. Capture with canon rebel t3i using a 35-70mm canon lense. A exposure of 30secs with a staking of only 8 images with a f1.8. Wish could do a better stacking, however, being the first try def killed it!

White River Camp, in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, MT. The cook tent is a place of good conversation, great food, wonderful coffee and reviewing the day’s photos. It is my favorite place in camp. A mountain spring flows directly behind it where we fill our water bottles and chill the beverages . It is Wilderness living, at its finest. .

Didn't capture any significant meteors, but Mars and the Milky Way hanging over the White Mountains was still enough for an awesome long night out. Saturn is in the shot too, located over the dramatic center of our galaxy.
Getting a chance to peer down into this valley is always worth the miles.

I had a request for a print and had to go back to this image, I am so glad I did. The original method I used had a lot of noise and wasn’t exactly what I wanted. But using new stacking and editing techniques it came out so much better. I’ll be posting the full final image in my FB next week! Enjoy!

The milkyway, andromeda, a meteor, and the Super Blood Moon of 2015 line up in rare form over #oldfaithful geyser in Yellowstone National Park.

We have another total lunar eclipse coming in January 2019. Want to join me in Death Valley? Sign up on my website! Its going to be an incredible experience! Only a few spots remain!

My kind of luck, when you try to capture the milkyway, but Mars appears so bright❤️❤️
I super love this place, karena nggak banyak polusi cahaya, jadi milkywaynya kelihatan pop up sekali.
Big thanks to @aprillianugg yang nemenin hunting milkyway wkwk

Headed out to do some tracked astro last night not far from home. This pic is of @benjaminkerr_sdi setting up his @skywatcheraustralia heq5, my Sky watcher star adventurer is on the left mounted on a @benro_australia travel angel. Labelled a few of the nightsky objects in this shot. So lucky to live where there are reasonably dark skies. This image was taken with my @canonaustralia 6d and @samyang_australia xp 14mm f2.4 lens .

"Bessie - The Gig"

This lovely old gig was rolled out of the shed for a short time and I wanted to capture it in all it's glory under the milky way. This is a combination of 5 separate shots light painted then edited in Lightroom and blended in Photoshop.
Nikon D750 Nikon 20mm f1.8
1 x Background layer @ f2.5 15 seconds iso3200
4 x Foreground layers @ f5 15 seconds iso500

You’re being watched out there, that’s just a given, though you don’t usually get to see who it is in the darkness.
This time just a quiet heron hung about to be in the frame. He did a fine job too, staying still for the five minute exposure. Thanks pal.

Power-Crystal Hunting - In this imaginary image, the human race is thriving in a multi-planet "world" where the competition is now between planets, not just countries anymore... I get to observe a military guarded search for extremely rare crystals of the new element -- Element 115 (ununpentium), a power source which may enable the actual achievement of warp speed capability.....whoever discovers it first....

Took this the other night at the Eltham train tracks after being reunited with one of my bestfriends I hadn’t seen for quite some time. It’s amazing how being around the right people can really lift your spirits up. 💛 -
In this pic you can see Jupiter and mars as well as the galactic core. The galaxy has me completely mesmerised everytime I look at it 😍 🌟 -

This place at night time was heaven.

This is a composite of several images from last week’s Perseids meteor shower! I first stacked many images in Starry Landscape Stacker to reduce overall noise (unfortunately, the bright light was tough to stack, thus some imperfections)! I then took that image into Photoshop as a base for the composite, and threw in the best meteors I was able to capture! The two trails in the second image (a crop of the first image) I can’t explain. I saw what looked to be two satellites hovering beneath Polaris, before they dashed away in that parallel formation. Probably aliens, no big! 👽
