Oops guess this should go in hobbies section
Marvelous photos. Remember the line in CONTACT concerning intelligent
beings in the universe? Sure is a lot of wasted space if there isn't...
well, I have only watched that movie no less than 200 times ... I almost got a chance to go to Arecibo as part of my undergraduate study into pulsars. I hope to visit the VLA (where she says that line) in December
Wow! Those are amazing photos!
I have a scope and like to get out and observe whenever possible, but haven't ever really dabbled in astrophotography. Those are seriously great shots!
What's your setup (mount, camera, filters, etc)?
Scope: Takahashi FSQ 85mm with 0.73 x reducer
Mount : Losmandy G-11
Camera: Zwo ASI 183 pro and ZWO Filter wheel
Focuser: Moonlite Nite Crawler focuser /rotator
Filters: Astrodon 3nm Ha, OIII, and LRGB
I also have a portable traveling setup Ioptron pro skytracker mount using the ASI 183 camera/filterwheel mentioned above with camera lenses
Wonderful pictures, to think other solar systems don't or can't sustain life would be typical human arrogance
there is no law in physics that says intelligent life or even life itself has to exist
thanks for sharing these amazing photos
