Sunday Nature Stills – 10/30/2016

Some astrophotography images tonight. I really like trying to take space images. Not only is it a technical challenge, but I really appreciate the uncomfortable philosophical feeling of the vastness of space and now small everything here on earth really is.

I took all these images using a normal camera and a telephoto lens. You can find details of how I stack space images on a previous post here.

1) Orion Nebula (1,344 light years from earth)
2) A meteor
3) The Moon
4) The Pleiades (425 light years from earth)
