This perfectly clear night over the new moon gave me a cracking opportunity for some more astrophotography.

Evening moon at 89.9% illuminated on 25th April, beautifully clear and one of my favourite phases ♥️

It’s taken 20 minutes for this photo to load! 😦 I hope this isn’t a permanent problem

When the surface of Mars is a requirement this weekend, you get to work! #airbrushing #makingmars #makersgonnamake #marsismachinewashable #jupiterjoesastronomy #astronomyoutreach #mars #youresa

About 16 hours after watching the OA-9 Cygnus spacecraft launch, I got to see it fly by in orbit chasing the ISS as they both cruised above Jupiter. What a day.
This is a stack of two images taken roughly 10 minutes apart without moving the camera between shots. The ISS passed first, but the timing of my exposures makes it look like Cygnus is leading.
I also caught a glimpse of the second stage booster, which showed up ahead of the others, but I couldn't get a clear shot of it.

My second time trying a launch streak. It's really cool to see everybody else's shots and how different the results are from location to location. I had a bit more clouds in my way compared to other angles and I was a little late on the shutter (doing too many things at once), but it's still pretty cool to see the trajectory... and the headlights of a couple late arrivals leaving before the engine rumbles had faded. Who are these people?? 2018.05.21

It's kind of hazy out tonight, but I was able to get a shot of this through a break in the clouds. This is also with the Meade telescope I rarely ever get to use. Also, it's the first time the stars aligned (no pun intended) and I was able to test the tracking with nothing getting in the way. (The first time was not having a power cable, then clouds non stop, then the largest eyepiece I had was 12.5mm which was too small to see anything, and then more clouds.) It has trouble lining up when slewing, but otherwise it works pretty well. So, here's a picture of the moon that I was able to get tonight.

My two favorite shots from this morning's launch, even though you can hardly see the body of the rocket. It's still amazing how the shockwaves from those engines can be felt so strongly from miles away. So much power. And also ice. Lots of ice.

Minha primeira tentativa de capturar Júpiter. Ainda posso melhorar mais. Mas tenho a impressão de ter sido um bom registro inicial.
.
Júpiter é o maior planeta do Sistema Solar e o quinto a partir do Sol. Tem 2,5 vezes mais massa que todos os outros planetas juntos. É um planeta gasoso composto principalmente de hidrogênio. Sua atmosfera é dividida em diversas faixas latitudinais, essas faixas "coloridas" da foto.

A sampling of lightning shots from a few hours before launch. Rockets don't like lightning, but they should because it looks super awesome. There were flashes happening all around, though most of it was pretty distant. Watching it through my binoculars with a spacecraft in the foreground is probably one of the top 10 things I've seen through them.
Shoutout to @fxmurphy for capturing the most incredible lightning & rocket shot I've come across (also taken this morning). 2018.05.21, 12:50 AM

Jupiter observations 22.04.2018 with Io (closer to GRS) and Europa moons 🔭📷 665.8 mln km 44.3" Apparent diameter. Winjupois processing merged 2 stacked images 4410 frames plus North Pole and South Pole projection. My best this year.. so far ☺. Sky-Watcher Maksutov Cassegrain 102/1300mm ASI 120mc Barrlow 2x UV IR Cut-L filter AZ3 mount. Low elevation maximum 23° is disturbing to achieve nice details due to atmosphere dispertion #jupiter #giove #jupiterplanet #solarsystem #mak102 #astrosprout #newmilkyway #universetoday #outerspace #apod #youresa #starviewig #nightscape #astrosprout #amateurastronomy #skywatcher #skyatnight #astrofoto #astrophotography #astrography__ #greatredspot #backyardastronomyguy #outterspace #beamazed #best_universe_ #telescope #astro_photography_ #apod #nightscape #jowisz #interstellar #telescope

Waiting patiently 3 1/2 hours before launch. It looks like the water tower is all dressed up with a flower behind its ear.
I discovered this vantage point south of the pad by studying the shadow lengths of bushes and trees on google maps. #genius

On the way down to this morning's Cygnus launch, I pulled over to watch its destination pass overhead. The ISS flew just beneath the bright star, Arcturus, with Jupiter among the clouds in the lower right.
