I'm @pietro31700 again. This is my last post for today. I'd like to share with you this image hoping you could appreciate it. I chose this one because I'd like to show you different types of photos I essay on. This is NGC 891, a famous galaxy among astrophotographers because of its Edge-On profile and because its shape with dust and gas clouds is fantastic to capture! It is in Andromeda Constellation and I captured it less than a month ago with an astronomical CCD, a sensor like the one you can find in smartphone cameras but studied for astronomy, and my telescope. To collect more light as possible the camera I used can't see color. I can take color with filter, but I'll probably do it a day. For this picture I took lots of signal : 66 shots of 5 minutes each. Camera: SBIG ST8-XME Telescope: Celestron C8 Edge HD Mount: Neq6 Finally, I want to thank @universetoday for the opportunity to share in his account some of my shots today and thank all community that will appreciate or won't appreciate my work.

Hi! I'm again @pietro31700. This is my second post and I want to share this Startrail taken from Alps mountain in 2016. The two unusual lines you can see are two different passage of the International Space Station (ISS) The star with a very short path is the Polaris near the North Pole. The ISS is fast in the sky so, in the photo, it seems to be dashed. This effect is caused by setting on the camera: this is not a single photo, but many shots put together to make the Earth's rotation visible, otherwise too much light would hit the camera sensor. Photos weren't continuously, and some seconds of stops are visible on the ISS track. I collected images for about 2 hours!!! The equipment used is: D3200 with 18-105 mm Nikkor lens A beautiful sky :-) #astronomy #astrophotography #astrophoto #reflex #nikon #startrail #night #sky #universe #star #stars #science #italy # piedmont Want to be featured?

Hello everyone, I'm Pietro and I'm a student from the beautiful hills of Langhe in Italy. I use astrophotography to study the universe and let me known. Every new challenge is adrenaline for me, so on my profile @pietro31700, you can find lots of type of shots, from Milkyway to exoplanet light curves. This is the picture I chose to present me. I catch these photos during the last Partial Lunar Eclipse visible from Italy on the 7th of August in 2017. The moon was rising while it was eclipsed and you can see the different phases of the moon while it was passing through the Earth shadow. Each photo of the moon you see is the stack of 15 shots, as is usual to do with planets to reduce the deterioration of the picture caused by atmospherical instability. Then the saturation of the final picture is increased to see the color of the Moon. Yes, the moon is colored because of its chemical composition; unfortunately, we can't see it by naked eye because differences in colors are too faint, but with a digital photo, we can stretch colors and show them. The setup I used was: Nikon D3200 Celestron C8 HD f/7 Celestron reducer #astronomy #astrophotography #astrophoto #telescope #reflex #nikon #moon #mineralmoon #eclipse #mooneclipse #night #sky #universe #solarsystem #italy # piedmont Want to be featured?
