  • Hello everyone! My name is Michel, I am from a small coastal town on the Mediterranean sea, called Batroun, Lebanon. It is the location where all the images I am sharing today were taken from. I have a life long fascination in space, and subsequently, sci-fi played a big part in my life. This hobby was a natural expansion for me when I started it in early 2018.⁠
⁠
I've been given the opportunity to take over the @universetoday page on Instagram today, and I will be sharing three of my recent images. You'll find the rest of them on my page @michelmakhlouta.⁠
⁠
The Flying Bat and the Giant Squid Nebulae is the first image that I will be sharing today, captured in narrowband. The first, Sh2-129, is an emission nebula approximately 1300 light-years away from Earth, in the constellation Cepheus. While the latter, Ou4, is about 2300 light-years away from Earth and discovered lately in 2011 by Nicolas Outters, an amateur astronomer. It represents a spectacular outflow driven by HR8119, a triple system of hot, massive stars seen near the center of the nebula. The truly giant Squid Nebula would physically be nearly 50 light-years across.⁠
⁠
The below gear was used:⁠
Telescope: TS Optics 80mm triplet apo @ 379 focal length⁠
Mount: Celestron CGEM DX Hypertuned⁠
Camera: ZWO ASI1600MM Pro with 7nm Ha and OIII filters⁠
Guiding: ZWO OAG with Orion SSAG⁠
⁠
Total integration time was around 43 hours, mostly spent on OIII to bring out the very faint squid.⁠

  • Sigiriya Rock (or lion rock) is one of the most jaw dropping locations in Sri Lanka. The fort was built in 477 AC as a capitol for the King, used as a Buddhist monastery until the 14th century, and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 🦁 Photo by @errincasa
