I have only a skywatcher 70/900 and I took photos with my cellphone.

Gentlemen, I really like this thread. Thank you. :)
Gravity strength distribution across the earth surface
What are those sprites at the bottom?
uughh misgendering shitlord! I'm an attack helicopter who likes astronomy
cryovolcanoes that spew water-ice and actively build part of the rings
Soviet lander with basically the only picture from the surface of Venus.
a few of the surfaces we have to offer
a wall is currently being built around this
Io, read up about the Io flux torus and the Io flux tube, also Decametric emissions you can pick up on earth.. that'll keep you busy for a few nightrs ;D
Also NASA Radio Jove. Inspried me to build a Dual dipole array in the attept to pick the DAM emissions up.. great fun.
it is indeed a perfect polygon
dont know what cause it tho
best moon pic i was able to make with crappy telescope and rpicam noir.
best theory i've heard is the storm is buffeted such that it resonates into the hexogonal shape.
If so, the storm is probably quite old
itt: retards acting like they understand science
I was referring to the shape on the top right, fuck nigga.
i want a comet to pass that is bright enough to see during the day
If there was a planet with intelligent life out with that had planetary rings like Saturn, how would that affect the pioneering for space travel?
I always wondered this.
look up the methods of using a piece of card in front of the binoculars/telescope to project an image of the sun
Yes, stare directly into the sun without protection for at least 10 minutes to focus your eyes on the planet, then snap the pic
i take this pic of jupiter from a cellphone
Look directly into your telescope first to eyeball where and when to frame your shot. It'll take your eyes a moment to adjust to the brightness (and it might hurt a little), but keep them open and you'll be able to see the disk.
Then you want to set up a series of filters -- try them in front of the telescope, eyeballing the sun through the telescope with each as you figure out which combination blocks the background sky and corona the best.
Don't do any of these things.jpg
about to hit image limit :> thanks for the nice thread folks
ahh my bad, I was looking at the replies not images.
one of mine.
Took this a few weeks ago while working at Kitt Peak
Orion Nebula with my old equipment. Got a new mount now, but Orion season is over where I live.
>tfw we wont live to see humans settling down on other planets
>tfw we will never know what universe is all about.
We're such insignificant creatures.
A canon rebel xs on the end of a Meade 102 infinity refactor telescope. Here's some Jupiter with the same setup.
you're a virus, a pest
i hate you primitive organic balls of goo
shooting dna at each other to make babies, i find it offensive
we will never accept your kind leaving the quarantine zone you call the solar system.
This will soon be a pony thread
nibiru is comming soon
and it is gonna smash into earth
and then your gonna fucking die
Because we need to use our time and money to make sure shanequa has enough counseling available for when her cousin/boyfriend gets shot after robbing a store.
Also, useless expensive wars in desolate hellholes.
Taken with Iphone 6 through 114m telescope
Yeah casual I know
Engineering student here.
I'm having a boner just thinking about the orbiter we could send with the SLS and the technical difficulties of suck a long journey and hostile conditions.
Your trivia for the day.
Pluto is the god of the underworld.
In order to get to the underworld, you had to cross over two rivers: Lethe and Styx. The river Lethe you could walk across and you would forget all about your life on earth. The river Styx was much deeper and required a ferry ride. First, that was why people were buried with coins on their eyes; so they could pay the ferryman. Second, the ferryman's name: Charon.
It's amazing the shit I remember from college.
Recent lunar eclipse, canon t1-i, 300mm lens
Here one i took a couple of months ago during a full moon, i edited it a little so the craters appeared darker
here's another one
that sucker moves fast, hard to keep track of through a laggy video stream and manually moving the telescope
i got frustrated with it back then (2014), might try again this year, there's a better version of mjpep-streamer now, so might be more doable now
October, 2014 partial eclipse over Lake Erie
OC time. Not too clear but I got a pretty cool picture of Jupiter and its moons from a telescope. I also have a better shot of the moon near full from the same telescope if any are interested
