The Mars 2020 rover has left the building! It will land on Mars 1 year from now!


2

New Horizons as it approached it’s closest to Pluto.


3

The Earth and The Moon as seen through Saturns rings.

5

An HDR shot of today’s martian occult.

These diagrams show the patterns that these planets make in our skies.


7

Olympus Mons is the tallest mountain in our solar system, located on Mars it stands at 24 kilometers high (16 miles) and is 3 times taller than Mount Everest.

This is the observable Universe on a logarithmic scale with the Solar System at the center. The layers in order: Kuiper belt, Oort cloud, Alpha Centauri star, Perseus Arm, Milky Way galaxy, Andromeda galaxy, nearby galaxies, the cosmic web, cosmic microwave radiation, invisible plasma from Big Bang.

The Andromeda Galaxy contains 1 trillion stars and is 2.5 million light years from Earth. This was captured from my backyard with 6 hours of exposure time.


10

The Eye of Sauron in deep space. This is almost 13 hours of exposure time.


11

I made history the other day as the first amateur to image the whole relativistic jet from the black hole of Centaurus A taking nearly 70 hours of exposure.


12

Jupiter is an art masterpiece.


13

What a difference from our earlier images.


14

In December 2008, Venus, Jupiter and Moon aligned to form a smiley face. People in Australia saw happy face smiley whereas people in the North saw a sad face smiley


15

The Dolphin Nebula.


16

Each dot you see in this image isn’t a star. It’s an entire galaxy, each containing roughly a billion stars of their own.

Can some1 explain how does the long exposure thing works when rotating and you have the sun/moon?

Reply to several: you have your telescope/camera on a polar mount, that is parallel to the rotation axis of the earth. Then a clockwork/motor drive that rotates the mount once every 24 hours. That way, you always point your telescoe in the same direction. This takes a high degree of precision.

You open the camera for a long-time exposure at nights, and shuts it before sun/moonrise. This way, you can accumulate exposure hours.

In short, friends: science.
