i recently went on an amazing trip to the southwest with some pretty cool and very talented photo pals! i’ve tagged them so check them out. we had a ton of fun! lots of laughter, epic views and loads of miles through 4 states! i’ve always thought that mountains were the coolest and my favorite to shoot but hoo doo’s might just trump them. they are so unique and just plain badass! truly it’s like your on another planet! 🤯 we were very blessed with beautiful sunrises and sunsets but after the sun went down the sky’s would clear and we were lucky to shoot the stars too...which is my favorite thing to do! some people who shoot with me know i’m always looking for hearts in my comps so this one is really special! it was the perfect place to end the 2019 mw season! @smpetersonphotography thank you for leading us on the absolute coolest photo tour! you rock! 🍪🍪🍪 for life!

Hi, its nicole again with my second photo for the day! 😄😄follow me at @nicolezanella to check out some more of my photos.
this photo was taken on a greek island called kythera. i was lucky enough to stay on the island for one month with my best friend. she also doubled as a tour guide and my photography location scout and assistant! 😂😂
this photo was taken on the kythera coastline. you can see the flare of lights of the mainland in the distance. there is a restaurant right in front of the boat. we waited until 2 am until the owners turned the lights off so the light didn't overexpose the boat. i never stack my photos, i'm a little lazy like that 😅i wanted to get this photo in a single exposure shot.
i'm so grateful for this photo as the other nights when we returned to take more photos it was extremely windy and the photos were blurry. 🌬️ 🌬️
i set up the shot and then got my friend to press the button. i wore a sailor hat and a striped singlet to complete the sailor look. 🛥️🛥️
although i love instagram as a platform and photo sorting application for different photography types, i find the quality of my photographs compromised when they're astro! they look so much better on the big screen. 🤔🤔 i'm not sure if i'm doing something wrong! please let me know if you know a better way to edit/load photos. 😅
📷settings/gear: canon 6d, samyang 14mm lens, 2.8, 25-second exposure, single exposure, i forget the iso for this one also! the lens i used is a manual lens and it didn't record it.

Name the galaxies you know👇⠀
the #andromeda galaxy. 📸captured by @deepskycolors⠀
also known as m31, the nearest large spiral #galaxy is a familiar sight with dark dust lanes, bright yellowish core, and spiral arms traced by blue starlight. a mosaic of well-exposed broad and narrow-band image data, this colorful, premier portrait of our neighboring island universe offers strikingly unfamiliar features though, faint reddish clouds of glowing ionized hydrogen gas in the same wide field of view. still, the ionized hydrogen clouds likely lie in the foreground of the scene, well within our #milkywaygalaxy .⠀
they could be associated with the pervasive, dusty interstellar cirrus clouds scattered hundreds of light-years above our own galactic plane. if they were located at the 2.5 million light-year distance of the #andromedagalaxy they would be enormous, since the andromeda galaxy itself is 200,000 or so light-years across.⠀

cars. stars. cars and stars! combining my favorite things into one shot. which is always fun! this old truck lives out in the desert outside of las vegas. i loved it's real color, too. made it easier to get it to pop from the background! minus the threat of rattlesnakes, it was a perfect night for some photo adventures! ;)
Winter, i welcome you with this beautiful cluster. this is pleiades aka seven sisters, a star cluster which can be easily spotted with unaided eye. i captured this with canon 85 mm f/1.8 lens. a small portion of stardust is visible (on right side). around 18 minutes exposure. get the most out of this lovely season, people !! 🌌🔭
19 nov 2019. agar's lines
i have photographed the night sky set against this dead tree near berry, new south wales, australia, on a handful of occasions over the past four years. the tree is hard up against the edge of the asphalt s***p named agars lane, a narrow and mostly straight rural road in the region. 🚙 🚘
at a rough guess, i’d reckon that i’ve only ever seen five or six cars pass along the road while i’ve been lurking in the dark with my tripod and camera. in one of those “what are the chances of that” moments that life sometimes serves up, during the hour that i was shooting photos on this particular night, two cars drove along the road and passed each other right near the tree. their headlights seemed to be set for “kill” rather than “stun”, with my night-vision being their target. it can take up to half an hour for a person’s low-light sight to reach full sensitivity and i didn’t want to have to set my internal timer back to zero and start over, so covered my eyes until the much dimmer tail lights were all that i could see. 💡
when reviewing the photos, later on, i saw just how intensely the headlights had lit up the area. three pictures were so bright and washed out that they were unusable, but a couple of shots either side of those were images showing only a few of the tree branches illuminated. i used those photos to make up this star-trails composite, as well as the remaining darker frames, to give the tree its half-dark/half-lit look. the gaps that you can see in the trails show where i had to leave out the overcooked shots, but they don’t take away too much from the concept of stellar inscriptions on the night sky.
my final, edited image here was created from 200 individual photos, and i shot each of those with a canon eos 6d camera, a rokinon 24mm f/1.4 lens @ f/2.4, using an exposure time of 15 seconds @ iso 6400.
This year started so well, and found my self out with my telescope or camera almost every week. then my laptop broke and since i have had it repaired, work and clouds have made opportunities hard.
any way last night i set my telescope up in the garden and 165 mins of data (2 and 3/4 hours) on m33 the triangulum galaxy.
canon eos1300d, skywatcher 200p guided on eq6 mount.
33 x 5min exposures at iso800.
the triangulum galaxy is the second closest galaxy after andromeda. 2.7 million light years from us.
One of my last shoots of the milkyway core for this season
το κέντρο του γαλαξία μας δύει.
για εμένα ήταν από τις τελευταίες λήψεις για αυτή την σεζόν.
αν και ο νυχτερινός ουρανός συνεχίζει να υπάρχει και τον χειμώνα κατά την γνώμη μου το καλοκαίρι έχει μια άλλη χάρη, μπορείς να είσαι έξω για αρκετές ώρες χωρίς να παγώνεις και να χρειάζεται ιδιαίτερο ντύσιμο.
