  • Planetary Nebula Abell 7
.
.
Very faint planetary nebula Abell 7 is some 1,800 light-years distant, just south of Orion in planet Earth's skies in the constellation Lepus, The Hare. Surrounded by Milky Way stars and near the line-of-sight to distant background galaxies, its generally simple spherical shape, about 8 light-years in diameter, is outlined in this deep telescopic image. Within its confines are beautiful, more complex details enhanced by the use of narrowband filters. Emission from hydrogen and nitrogen is shown in reddish hues with oxygen emission mapped to a bluish-green color, giving Abell 7 a more natural appearance that would otherwise be much too faint to be appreciated by eye. A planetary nebula represents a very brief final phase in stellar evolution that our own Sun will experience 5 billion years hence, as the nebula's central, once sun-like star shrugs off its outer layers. Abell 7 itself is estimated to be 20,000 years old. Its central star is seen here as a fading white dwarf some 10 billion years old.

  • Long shot taken last Saturday. As the moon becomes closer to full you begin to lose some of the cool crater detail. The planet all the way to the right is Jupiter. This is an in camera 2 shot mulitple exposure. Even though the two planets were only 3 fingers 🤣 apart I couldn't capture them in one shot at 600mm. #moon #jupiter #astrophotography #astronomy #backyardphotography #nikond800

  • This shot is by @nasa, and my painting from “galaxy” series.
The painting was done a year before the shot, but no,  it looks like it’s the same piece!
Снимок НАСА и моя картина из серии млечных. Картина написана раньше, чем сделан снимок, но такое чувство, будто они рождены в одно и то же время и написаны одной рукой!

  • It's ! Hubble has many cameras that help it observe the universe, including the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS). ACS was installed on Hubble in 2002 and has taken many of Hubble's iconic images.
