It seems like the hours of setting up last Saturday were all worth it! I am over the moon (see what I did there? 😜) after stacking and processing these images. I learnt a lot that night as a result of making mistakes and having an awesome and supportive astronomy community that wouldn't let me give up. πŸ’ͺ🏼 One thing that stood out is that small but consecutive mistakes will always amount to much bigger problems. I'll share some of my main lessons on my next post. For now, let's just enjoy this little gem of a nebula: the Trifid Nebula (M20). Located 5,200Iy away, it kinda reminds me of a cell undergoing mitosis. πŸ™Š I'm curious if that little cluster to the right on the 2nd slide has a name. Does anyone know? πŸ€“

The Trifid Nebula, probably the prettiest object in Sagittarius (and that's saying a lot!). It's also one of Greg's favourite objects. He got really excited while he was imaging the Trifid.

Here is one I shot last week. This is a shot of the Lagoon Nebula and the smaller one is the Trifid Nebula. Both of these are right in the core of the milky way. The Lagoon Nebula is more obvious in wide shots it appears as a tiny purplish blob. But this was shot using my Nikon 200-500 shooting a bunch of very short exposures and then stacking them. I plan on sticking that setup on my tracker very soon and seeing what I can get.

I’ve been lusting after this telescope for a while now, and last night I finally had the chance to take it out. Of course, clouds and lightning meant that it stayed in the car for all but one moment of desperation. I took a single 60 second exposure of the Lagoon and Trifid nebulae...a SINGLE exposure. This scope is capable of so much more...

9 frames panorama photo of MilkyWay beside in the Ahanak lake,
After spending about 5 Km of mountains in Simindash( which is located near by Firozkooh), we could finally see Ahanak lakes,
Along the way, we saw the ruined houses as well as livestock kept which indicated a sign of anciant life,As the deep soft 20 meters of the lake is crystal clear, recently a scuba diving tour is being held there, that has made great chang in the area to break the silence! yet we were not immune to it!

I just played around with longexposure and small LED light, I didn't know what it will look like, but I definitely didn't expect it to look like I'm holding double-sided lightsaber on a second picture. πŸ˜€

I was finally ready to do some imaging but sky wasn't clear enough as you can see in this short timelapse. There's bright Mars rising and second brightest Saturn going behind the roof.

I'm a very haphazard photographer. I rarely, if ever, have any concept of how a shot will come out, or set out to capture a particular scene in a particular way. I wave the camera around vaguely, and am either pleasantly surprised, or faintly dismissive, of the results. Except this one. This is getting close to the image I wanted to see. It's not perfect, by a long way, but I'm pleased that it adheres at all to my original idea.
There's so much going on here. As a backdrop, the Milky Way core, and the Dark Horse nebula. A couple of cluster galaxies along the bottom edge. To the left, the Great Sagittarius Cluster, then moving right, Saturn, and the Lagoon and Trifid nebulae. Above them, 2 more clusters, the Omega and Eagle nebulae, then moving down and right again, yet another cluster, and somewhere meandering around, the asteroid Vesta. Finally, towards the bottom right, Antares, one of the largest known stars, and the other stars of Scorpio. Surrounding Antares, the Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex.

Another view of the sky! I am blown away by this photo! Repost from @newpointe_wealth. Thank you for tagging us! He says: The core of our milky way galaxy. Post 2 of 3 in the series
.
Countless times I have been asked "how large are the galaxies/nebula you photograph?" I'm providing perspective of deep space using our Milky Way and the Lagoon/Trifid nebula as subjects. The nebula are 4,000 - 5,000 light years from earth. Which means, many of the stars you see in these photographs and in our night sky are no longer there. They have already died, aka ghost stars, but the light is just now reaching earth. Looking at the night sky is in theory the closest thing we have to time travel

Stay tuned for the 3rd and final post

Tried my (shaky) hand at a burst. Used a 24-70mm zoom. I like the effect, but I don’t like that it makes it very hard to stack. The zoom doesn’t let as much light in as my other lenses so I have to increase the ISO and deal with more noise than I’d like. But, the point of doing something a little different is to challenge yourself and learn. - - - - - -

This cropped image of Lagoon and Trifid nebulae doesn't do justice but still fun to experiment. I'm having issues with stacking and had to do manually. Currently saving for a telescope so I can gain more reach.

I drove ten hours yesterday from North Carolina. It was just past midnight when I pulled into my driveway. The stars were amazing. They were the clearest and brightest I’ve seen them this year. As tired as I was, I grabbed my camera and tripod and headed up to my field to snap off a few pictures. You can never count on the weather in Pennsylvania to give you a good night so when it’s nice, you better take advantage. Even though I live in a small town we still get a fair amount of light pollution. I didn’t have the motivation to drive away from it after so much driving, but I am happy with the results. I took this on a tripod with a 35mm lens. No tracker involved. Did some light stacking, only about six photos. The more I take the more I learn. I can start to recognize constellations and nebulae. I don’t know how well it will show up on here, but you can see Saturn, the Lagoon, Trifid, Omega, and Eagle Nebulae. If you look off to the right you can see Antares in the group of stars that look like a pentagon. - - - - - -

Milky Way from the Lagoon to the Swan (technically M24 here - Instagram cut me off - see the link for full version)
1.1 hour integration
Captured July 7, 2018
Full details: https://astrob.in/354822
Here's a wide field view showing the variety of objects visible near the galactic core in Sagittarius. In the top left is M17, the Swan Nebula. Below it you can see M24, the Sagittarius Star Cloud, a region where no dust is obscuring the view so more stars are visible. In fact, this section shows how bright the entire Milky Way would appear if not for the obscuring dust and gas. In the bottom right is the lovely triplet of the Lagoon Nebula, Trifid Nebula, and NGC 6559.

Had a great time last night with friends shooting the stars. We don’t get many nights like this in July here in the south. Trifid and Lagoon Nebula. Shot on a IR modded Nikon D3200 at 200mm. 12 x 2.5 min exposures.

Trifid Nebula at 5,000 light years away. It sits in our Milky Way Galaxy on a different spiral arm from us. It appears near the same size as the full moon in the sky. Seen in front, a knot of gas is dense enough that it has been able to resist being blow away by central star's powerful radiation that is pushing outwards. The cloud is about 16 light years across inside.

This is my first try at photographing M8-the lagoon nebula and M20-the trifidnebula in one frame. I managed to get 28 exposures of 75 seconds each at Iso800.no calibration frames. Captured using my astromodded Canon EOS1200da and my little TS Photoline 72 doublet Apo mounted on the skywatcher staradventurer for tracking.

This is my last entry for the day, i am @diegocolonnello and i would like to share my version of the Trifid Nebula, or M20.
Red, Green and Blue filters are used in front of a monochrome camera in order to capture this data with a 10 inch newtonian Telescope, 99% of my photos are shot from my backyard and this is no different, Melbourne Suburb, Australia...
This Nebula is 5200 light years away from us, it shows an emission Nebula (red) a reflection nebula (blue) and a dark nebula (the dark "gaps" between the red nebula parts)
Once again, thanks to Fraser Cain, this is an invaluable opportunity to share my creativity and effort to show a bit of the night sky wonders.

I captured this image of the Lagoon Nebula (red object) in the milky way. The nebula is a beautiful summer object. Back in the day, we had to piggyback camera's on top of telescopes one way to create the image. πŸ”­ Sitting down, looking through an eyepiece with a star in the middle, with red crosshairs, making sure the star does not guide away from the crosshairs. Bumping the telescope would make you start all over again! πŸ™„πŸŒ  The telescope mount tracks the sky's motion with your camera, that's screwed on top of the telescope, leaving the camera lens shutter open. You would have to keep looking into the eyepiece to make sure the star was in the red crosshairs the entire time. Back in the days depending on what your astrophotographing, a single image could take from a couple minutes to maybe even an hour. Much HARDER work then what we have now, since you can hook the telescope up to a laptop, and let the computer software do the tracking itself. (Hands free). πŸ‘ Technology has advanced in the astrophotography world in the last 2 decades. 🌎 For an example you take 20 pictures - 1 minute exposure each of the same object and stack the images in photoshop, so the picture looks better. Much easier. Back in the 90s and so forth - not the case. You had to sit on your ass and work for it. πŸ˜… This picture is at LEAST 10 years old, in my collection. I used Elitechrome 200 35mm slide film, since the colour red was sensitive to deep space objects. I remember my single exposure was between 25 - 30 minutes to create this. πŸ“· I had to sit in a chair looking through the eyepiece, making sure the star was in the crosshairs for that amount of time. Backbreaker! πŸ™„ Using slidefilm, i can take out my slide projector and look at my images on the wall. 😎 One of my favorite objects to see in Sagittarius 🌌 this summer in binoculars. πŸ‘€ Can't wait to see it at the star party this summer. πŸ€— Best seen in binoculars. The Trifid Nebula is right above the Lagoon, too. #polish #polishboy #canadian #lagoonnebula #m8 #messier8 #sagittarius #trifidnebula #m20 #messier20 #elitechrome #slidefilmphotography #35mm #astronomer #astrophotography #summer #telescope #piggyback #astronomy #space

I picked up either an asteroid or a comet in my last image of the Trifid Nebula. It had to be very large because I was taking short exposures but I was photographing close to our asteroid belt so it is likely this is a city sized asteroid.

My next image from Lanzarote, the Lagoon (M8, lower object)and Trifid Nebulae (M20, upper object). Swipe across for a slightly wider field of view.

The Lagoon Nebula is a giant emission nebula in the constellation of Sagittarius located around 5000 light years from Earth. It is a HII region like the Orion nebula.

The Trifid Nebula is also a HII region, it is unusual in that the lower magenta portion is an emission nebula like M8, whereas the purple/blue upper portion is a reflection nebula. There is also a dark nebula which can be seen as the gaps in the emission nebula part. Again located around 5000 ly from Earth.

I used my Nikon 180mm prime lens for this, which results in purple
halos around stars, they were tricky to get rid of here as the steps
taken muted the nebulosity somewhat, so I have done some masking etc.... and in the end added in diffraction spikes to hide the after effects of
the halos.

This is my second attempt at the Trifid Nebula, taken with poor seeing conditions with a Nikon D5300 and Celestron NexStar 130 on an AVX mount. Post processing done with Deep Sky Stacker and photoshop.

The Trifid Nebula
(NGC 6514)
-
An emission nebula in the constellation of Sagittarius. It has a diameter of 42 light years across and is 5,200 light years away from Earth. This nebula is gradually being eroded by a nearby massive star. Jets of radiation get blasted out by a newly forming star buried inside the nebula, creating long streaks of light

The Trifid Nebula @ The Cherry Springs Star Party

There is no substitute for dark skies! Just a luminance filter used for this shot. Unreal.

I hope you enjoyed the video at the CSSP. As much work as it is travelling with (an ever growing) rig of gear, it's so worth it. I'd love to do more travel vlogs in the future.
