1350-91 - A telescopic closeup of Comet Lovejoy (C/2014 Q2) on January 19, 2015. I shot this from near Silver City, New Mexico, using a TMB 92mm apo refractor at f/4.4 and using a Canon 6D at ISO 1600 for a stack of 4 x 5 minute exposures. The ion tail is primarily from a single exposure to minimize blurring from the comet's motion relative to the stars. The rest of the image is from the stacked combination to minimize noise.
1350-167 - Mars (at left in clouds) and the summer Milky Way over Lake Herbert and reflected in the still waters this night. This is in Banff National Park, Alberta. I shot this July 17, 2018 on a night that gradually clouded up, after a run of two very good nights previous to this.
1350-8 - Transit of Venus, June 8, 2004, from Luxor, Egypt. A single image taken near mid-transit. Taken with a Sony DSC-V1 digital camera shooting afocally through a 40mm eyepiece and on a 90mm apochromatic refractor, equatorially mounted and driven. Shot thru a Baader solar filter, which gives a white Sun. Yellow coloration added in Photoshop.
1350-2 - April 17/18, 2001 aurora, taken from home in Alberta. looking south. Part of a series taken looking same direction as substorm hit and subsided, from Image #2 to #15, on Roll #1. (Roll #2 was second camera shooting Provia 100F with 28mm lens and 18mm lens.) All images in this series (#1-02 thru 15) processed in Photoshop with nearly identical enhancements to contrast and colour. Brightness toned down for longer overexposed shots (early ones).
1350-54 - The Hyades star cluster with the red giant star Aldebaran (looking yellow here) in Taurus the bull in the winter sky. The field is similar to what a pair of large binoculars would show. I shot this from home Nov. 25, 2019.
1350-28 - The Carina Nebula (aka Eta Carinae) in the southern sky, shot December 11, 2012 from Timor Cottage, Coonabarabran, NSW, Australia. This is a stack of 5 x 12 minute exposures at ISO 400 with the Canon 5D MkII (filter modified) and Astro-Physics 105mm Traveler apo refractor and 6x7 field flattener.
1350-984 - Gandhi Smriti Museum, the home of Mahatma Gandhi for last 144 days of his life, before he was shot on January 30th 1948. The Footsteps Represent His Last Walk Before his Death, Delhi, India.
1350-96 - The partial eclipse of the Sun, October 23, 2014, as seen from Jasper, Alberta, in this case shot through thin cloud but that makes for a more interesting photo than one in a clear sky. This is still shot through a mylar filter, on the front of a 66mm f/6 apo refractor using the Canon 60Da for 1/25 sec exposure at ISO 100. The colours are natural, with the mylar filter providing a neutral 'white light' image. With the Sun dimmed a lot by cloud, the longer exposure allowed picking up light and colours in the surrounding clouds.
1350-97 - The partial eclipse of the Sun, October 23, 2014, as seen from Jasper, Alberta, shot under clear skies through a mylar filter, on the front of a 66mm f/6 apo refractor using the Canon 60Da for 1/8000 (!) sec exposure at ISO 100. The colours are natural, with the mylar filter providing a neutral 'white light' image. The big sunspot on the Sun that day is just disappearing behind the Moon's limb. The mylar filter gave a white Sun, its natural colour, but I have tinted the Sun's disk yellow for a more pleasing view that is not just white Sun/black sky.
1350-985 - Gandhi Smriti Museum, the home of Mahatma Gandhi for last 144 days of his life, before he was shot on January 30th 1948. The Footsteps Represent His Last Walk Before his Death, Delhi, India.
1350-24 - The Orion Nebula complex consisting of M42, M43 and the reflection nebula area known as the Running Man Nebula, NGC 1973-5-7. NGC 1981 is the blue star cluster at top north edge. North is up, though in the sky from Australia where this was shot the object appeared upside down compared to this northern-centric view.
1350-78 - A session shooting deep-sky objects in the rural backyard in Alberta, on a chilly November night, November 8, 2018. I was using the Celestron 8 HD tube assembly on the Astro-Physics Mach One mount, and was shooting Messier 27 with the Canon 6 D MkII. I shot this image with the Sony a7III and Venus Optics 15mm lens at f/2 focused on the foreground.
1350-7 - Transit of Venus, June 8, 2004, from Luxor, Egypt. A composite image (layered in Photoshop) of individual multiple shots taken from just after 2nd contact to just before 3rd contact. Taken with a Sony DSC-V1 digital camera shooting afocally through a 40mm eyepiece and on a 90mm apochromatic refractor, equatorially mounted and driven. Shot thru a Baader solar filter, which gives a white Sun. Yellow coloration added in Photoshop.
1350-99 - The Northern Lights on Feb 16, 2015, as seen from the Churchill Northern Studies Centre, in Churchill, Manitoba at 58° latitude, and under the auroral oval. The aurora appeared as skies cleared somewhat during a blizzard with high winds and blowing snow conditions. I shot these from the second floor deck of the Centre, out of the wind and off the ground. Jupiter is at right, the Big Dipper at left.
1350-52 - The summer Milky Way with the Summer Triangle stars through pine trees, shot from the Howse Pass Viewpoint at Saskatchewan River Crossing, Banff National Park, Alberta. Jupiter is the bright object at the bottom.
1350-174 - The waxing crescent Moon setting over a nearby farm, on June 26, 2017. Shot at the start of a time-lapse sequence, and shot in haste from home as the Moon appeared from beneath an otherwise very cloudy sky. The dark side of the Moon is lit by Earthshine, prominent despite the Moon's low altitude and bright twilight sky.
1350-138 - A aurora group is taking their aurora selfie shots on the boardwalk at Rotary Park in Yellowknife, NWT, under a grand sweep of an auroral arc. This was September 11, 2018 under a mild display of Lights. Illumination is from the aurora and from urban lighting nearby.
860-288797 - Remarkable flysch formations of Deba, Basque Coast Geopark, Basque Country, Spain. Flysch formed at the end of the Mesozoic era in the Cretaceous - flyschs are formed by sediment accumulation following repeated submarine avalanches, due to earthquakes, and producing after compaction and crystallization very regular layers of sandstone and limestone here recovered by Pyrenean orogeny and released by erosion.
