Here are some of the first images I have ever taken when I started astrophotography. These images are of Messier 103. I hope you enjoy them. I took them with my Makustov Cassegrain 7″ and a Cannon 60D camera.
Here are some pictures of the Whirlpool Galaxy that I took. These are with a Celestron C11, hyperstar, ASI mcpro camera, and guide scope. I tried to use a filter with the hyperstar to reduce the light pollution, but it blocked some colors from coming through. I still think it is a pretty awesome result though. The next time I do this target, I’ll try to get all the color.
I took this picture a couple years ago around when I first started astrophotography. When I processed all of the data for this picture I was amazed at the result being that this is all unguided 30 second exposures. I used a 7″ MakCass and a Cannon 60D
It’s a little green but I think it’s pretty good for just starting off.
These are pictures of Bodes Nebulae M81 that were taken with a Celestron C11 with a hyperstar, guide scope, asimcpro camera, PHD2 for tracking, Siril stacking, and gimp post processing. My gimp skills aren’t that great yet, but improving.
This is the best post processed one I currently have.
So with the hyperstar, I was only able to do around 15-30 second subs. I think because the Focal ratio is reduced so much that the amount of light it is gathering washes out the exposure quicker. If you have any advice on how I can improve, please leave a comment. Thank you.
One of the latest crazes on the internet today is about people getting together and raiding area 51. Celebrities have stated that they are down to go raid area 51, and there is supposedly and event organized for a certain day when all of these people are going to get together and march into the unknown. One thing that is totally great about this event is that the memes are going to be gold for the rest of the world to enjoy and laugh about for probably a long time to come.
So what are some pros to people actually raiding area 51? With anything that goes on there are pros and cons and I have been thinking about this event lately even though I am not attending I have been thinking of the possibilities. You know I love the idea of a naked man space suit (By the way where do I sign up to be a tester of it) and my favorite animal is the tardigrade that can actually live in the vacuum of space. Any way here is a list of some pros I have been thinking about concerning raiding area 51.
They discover that there really are aliens that have came to earth and are somehow being held captive there.
The discovery of some types of alien technology like teleportation or telepathy.
Secret weapons that are unheard of being experimented with
The results of the age old experiment of what came first the chicken or the egg(trillions of dollars have probably been dumped into this)
Maybe an alien spacecraft could be discovered being held in this facility.
Years of research knowledge about things that no one has ever even heard of.
Maybe the possibility of knowledge of habitable planets that has not been released to the public.
Secret alien recipes for 5 star alien restaurants haha
Not only is this mission to raid area 51 not well thought out and pretty much ridiculous, it is a secret place for a reason. So I get to the cons of raiding area 51. I really hope that people do raid area 51 just because I would like to see what comes of it. There are some pros that I think would come of it but there are many more cons associated with raiding a top secret facility.
Releasing an alien toxin into the atmosphere.
Armed Guards killing civilians to protect area 51 secrets.
The aliens there want to remain secret and if word gets out they will destroy earth because they are so technologically advanced to even be able to travel this far.
The military nukes area 51 to destroy everything that has been going on there.
We find out all of the technology that we love so much comes from aliens and that we are all just pawns in their intergalactic game of chess.
And last but not least Armed Guards!!!!!!!!
That is my very small rendition of the pros and cons of raiding area 51. I personally wouldn’t do it in respect for our own government in keeping secrets and making America a great place to live, but I hope that this group does raid area 51 because I would like to see how everything would turn out. I just hope if there is aliens there that they do not destroy earth because they have been revealed to the public while if there is aliens here and they have the technology to come all of this way then they could probably destroy earth with the snap of their fingers. Thank you for reading haha!!!!!! Good luck raiders of the area 51 lost arc!!!!!!
So, I have always wondered how people will be able to expand into space and colonize other planets. It occurred to me that we will need to be able to enter outer space without space suits. Yep that’s it!! We will have to find some way to shield our skin and all our holes(nostrils, mouth, etc….) so that if we were in outer space, or some other planets surface we will survive without almost dying instantly.
Lately I have heard of “water bears” or (tardigrades) and supposedly they can withstand temperatures ranging from -272 deg C to +150 deg C, they can be without water for a period of 10 years, and they are extremely resistant to radiation. Now if you ask me the scientists should have jumped on that discovery since they first made it and figured out some way to blend that organisms homeostatic properties with that of the human being. Its always been a dream of mine to be able to live in space without a spacesuit and maybe these water bears are the key.
Not only does copypasteearth think that eventually there will be an actual earth for each and every person, they love to think about floating through space naked haha. We have come a long way into exploration of space and personally I think that if we have any chance at all of colonizing Mars we will definitely need a Naked Man Space Suit. There would maybe have to be some biological engineering going on between the tardigrades and the humans so that we can have the same resistance in space that they do. Our nostrils, mouth, anus, and other openings would have to have some sort of transparency to the genetic mutation so we can still use them. If NASA or SpaceX is working on something like this my hats off to them. Probably not in my life time but I forsee the naked man spacesuit in the future of mankind. Thank you for reading 😉
