Still can’t believe I can make images like this from my driveway
(125h LHaRGB combination)
#astrophotography

A colorful group of galaxies, among them the lenticular galaxy M86 and the distorted galaxies “The Eyes” which collided with M86 eons ago. A trail of red gas connects the galaxies as a reminder of this violent past.

Just typical southwestern US desert things like Auroras

I know it's no aurora, but this is an image I'm working on right now

Some recent photons from my driveway, a very faint hydrogen gas bridge between two galaxies about 50 million light years away.
At some point in the past the larger galaxy collided with the one at the bottom and basically ripped it apart, dragging some hydrogen gas with it.
This is about 52 hours of exposure time.

A monochrome image looking at Hydrogen emissions in the The Eyes and Messier 86 galaxies, and showing a very faint and brittle gas bridge between them. Arrows added to show where to look for, as it's very low contrast and hard to see.

Still surprised how anti-science and conservative so many people who are into #astrophotography are--a hobby that's extremely science-adjacent and shows the wonders of the universe and you'd think would lead to an open mind.

The region around the Eagle Nebula (which sports the famous Pillars of Creation, center of image) is very rich in Hydrogen gas. Here's a wider field of view from my backyard (about 48 full moons would fit in this field of view).

Centaurus A, a bright galaxy in (you guessed it) Centaurus. I can barely observe it from here in Tucson as it only rises about 15° over the horizon, but the image turned out ok. #astrophotography

The "Pillars of Creation", as seen from my driveway. This is the central structure in Messier 16, the Eagle Nebula which is now rising very early in the morning.
