Now & Then: Some of earliest images of celestial bodies! Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Orion Nebula and Andromeda Galaxy.. 😯
There is much more to the technology used in astronomy today. For example, the Hubble Space Telescope and many other astronomical devices. However, one thing that is becoming more common is to utilize a computer which drives the telescope. This has allowed navigation of the night skies to be much easier than it used to be.

A series of #astrophotography shots taken by photographer @albertdrosphotography with the a7R III and 24mm f1.4 G-Master lens. (Swipe 👉🏽 to see all four.) “The sharpness and stars in the corners with the lens wide open at f/1.4 is extraordinary. This, in combination with the portability and the extremely lightweight [form factor], makes it a lens that is now always in my camera bag." | a7R III | 24mm f1.4 GM | #SonyAlpha#BeAlpha
Had a mini breakdown over this piece. After finally getting into the creative flow to paint and film last night, I woke up this morning to realise all the footage of this piece had gone 😩. Needless to say I went into a complete , slightly overdramatic meltdown ( still do when I think about it 😏) but I guess we learn everyday. .
My first attempt at a twilight sky and I know it won’t be my last 🌌
Scattered Star Flurries -I love the way the light from the setting moon created 2 distinct color zones in this long exposure. To me it looks like the stars are beginning to fall out of the blue sky into the earthy coffee colored layer. I couldn’t be happier with this😊⭐️
The Statue of Liberty Nebula, also known as The Weeping Angel Nebula, stunning starless version by Andy Campbell, @andys_astro. Go check his profile for more amazing astro stuff.
Thrilled to have my image selected by the Nasa guys for today's APOD
What's happening in the Statue of Liberty nebula?
Bright stars and interesting molecules are forming and being liberated. The complex nebula resides in the star forming region called RCW 57, and besides the iconic monument, to some looks like a flying superhero or a weeping angel. By digitally removing the stars, this image showcases dense knots of dark interstellar dust, fields of glowing hydrogen gas ionized by these stars, and great loops of gas expelled by dying stars
