We want your space/astronomy pictures!
« on: 21/10/2009 19:17:21 »
We're looking for space/astronomy pictures to discuss as part of a new podcast!

We would like to see the ones that you have found that simply blew you away, or even better, ones you have taken yourself!

If you have any amazing astronomical pics, get them in to us by posting them in this thread or emailing them to Chris@thenakedscientists.com.

We look forward to seeing space through your eyes...

NASA forgot to de-stripe this image of Mars ...

The dark line in the bottom right pointing to the centre of the image is the trail of a dust devil, (mini tornado).

Hey its really very nice and cool picks. I have seen some of them before. I am student of computer field. But still I would like to do different types of experiments. I like science field too much but someone force makes me to join computer field. Well its not bad but I would like to watch more picks. So if you have it more than you can share it here.

WEST YORKSHIRE, GREAT BRITAIN -- Putting NASA and its billion dollar budgets to shame, a British space enthusiast took amazing photos and video from space with just a few hundred dollars, a home camera and a balloon.

Robert Harrison spent a mere $747 dollars to take his photos and video from 22 miles above Earth's surface.

The results are stunning.

Harrison told the L.A. Times that a NASA official who saw the photos and video called him and asked him how he did it.

Most pictures get posted in the other thread, started back in 2007 i.e. before this thread was started.  It doesn't make sense to me to have two threads for posting physics & astronomy pics.

Hi,
I installed transient event on my iPhone. It shows differences in night sky.  Here is an example newbielink:http://www.skyalert.org/events/19451/ [nonactive]
My question, this looks like the star is moving, I assume huge distances how?.  Like to know what you think.
Regards
Scott

well to answer your question, the photo of the moon was taken with a n orion 4.5" reflector with a homemade mount to hold my digital camera, i don't remember the magnification specs, the rest were taken with the same mount and telescope but with a better camera. i compiled the different images into one cool picture with gimp.

So the exposure times where small? You didnt need to motorise/drive the telescope during the exposure?
