Stellarvue Telescopes @stellarvue.telescopes.official here one last time today, featuring the Andromeda Galaxy, taken by @brianpoole.space using our SV80ST. Fun fact, did you know that the picture of the Andromeda Galaxy used on Apple computer desktops was taken using a Stellarvue Telescope (by astrophotographer Tony Hallas) and chosen by Steve Jobs personally? #telescopes #galaxy #apple #space #astronomy #astrophotography #astrophotos #astro #nightsky #andromeda #galaxy #universe #cosmos #longexposure #nature #night #sky #beautiful #space #nightimages #stars #science #stargazing #nightphotography Want to be featured?

(3/3) Hi everyone, Rebecca here with the final image today! Huge thanks to @UniverseToday and @fcain for letting me taking over your instagram account :) This image was taken last November at the Wellington Red Rocks reserve. I call it the "Twilight Kiwi" because at this time of the year the core of the milky way (or the 'galactic kiwi') sets below the horizon just after sundown. It was such a clear evening, one can see the South Island silhouetted in the centre looking very close to Wellington like it's part of our backyard. Thank you all for following along today, I hope you have enjoyed the images as much as I enjoyed taking them. Feel free to visit my gallery @rebeccateng where not only astro photos can be found. --------------------------------------------- Canon 7D, 16mm, f2.8, 20secs, ISO-3200 --------------------------------------------- Want to be featured?

(2/3) Hi everyone! It's @rebeccateng again and here is my second shot for today! New Zealand is a perfect place for contemplating the universe and lucky enough, we get to see the southern lights from time to time when conditions are favourable. This image was taken in April 2017 when mother nature graced us Wellingtonians some colour rays. This was a KP-6 and the lights can be photographed as far north as Auckland. To be frank, I have never seen so many cars piling up the car park at night. You can tell by the light trails that there were loads people walking/driving along the beach! Also captured in the frame: Two interislander ferries sailing to and fro south island under the small and large magellanic clouds. --------------------------------------------- Canon 7D, 16mm, f2.8, 28secs, ISO-4000 --------------------------------------------- Thanks again @Universetoday for letting me taking over your instagram account.

(1/3) Hi everyone! My name is @rebeccateng and I am a photographer based in Wellington, New Zealand. Big thanks to @Universetoday for letting me taking over their instagram channel! I'll share three of my favourite astro images today which were all taken in the coolest little capital of New Zealand (: This little lighthouse is situated at the northern tip of the Miramar Peninsula. It is a popular fishing/picnic spot by day, and a perfect place for stargazing when the night is clear. This image is a personal favourite of mine as it reminds me of the quote: Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to the shining— they just shine... Like the milky way! --------------------------------------------- Canon 7D, 16mm, f2.8, 20secs, ISO-2000 --------------------------------------------- #galactickiwi #milkyway #milkywaychasers #astrophotography #theartofnight #nightphotography #wellingtonnz #purenewzealand #nzmustdo #newzealandguide #longexponz #longexpoelite #earthofficial #fantastic_universe #mthrworld #nakedplanet #ig_dynamic #folkscenery #lonelyplanet Want to be featured?

Good evening everyone!  First of all, I'd like to say a huge thank you to @universetoday for giving me the opportunity to take over for a day! Here's my third and last post and I decided to post one of my favorite composite images from 2017. This image was created by simply blending one of my old milkyway shots that were pre-stacked to reduce noise and the foreground that I shot recently in White Sands National Monument, New Mexico. It's an offseason for seeing the Milkyway right now but I can't wait for the summer to go back to this place and shoot the core rising over the sand dunes for real! Thank you for following along today and big thanks to Fraser and @universetoday profile for the opportunity to take over. I hope you liked what you saw today and feel free to visit my gallery @psuchenautes to check out my other works. Have a good rest of your day! #milkywaychasers   #astrography_ #nightphotography #astronomy #astrophotography #astrophotos #astro #nightsky #milkyway #galaxy #universe #cosmos #longexposure #nature #landscape #night #sky #beautiful #space #nightimages #stars #science #stargazing Want to be featured?

Hello everyone, Karthik here again with my 2nd post of the day. You’ll find my own gallery @psuchenautes and I generally post nightscapes, scenic timelapse and milky way composites. New moon and a cloudless summer night make it a perfect opportunity for camping in the woods; wherein all darkness you could still see the silhouette of the trees and the sky filled with stars. This image was taken when I experienced one of those nights camping in Kaibab National Forest, AZ. The image was made by stitching 5 portrait shots each stacked with 7 individual shots of the same frame for reducing noise level, so that’s a total of 7x5 images. This was also my first milkyway shot after getting the Rokinon 24mm f1.4 lens, which is one of the best investments I've made for shooting nightscapes. Each image was shot at 24mm | f2.0 | 13” | 3200 ISO. #milkywaychasers #astrography_ #nightphotography #astronomy #astrophotography #astrophotos #astro #nightsky #milkyway #galaxy #universe #cosmos #longexposure #nature #landscape #night #sky #beautiful #space #nightimages #stars #science #stargazing Want to be featured?

Hey everyone, Karthik here! I'm currently getting my Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering and I am an amateur photographer based in Tempe, Arizona. I've been given the privilege of taking over the Universe Today Instagram channel for a day. :) You'll find my own gallery @psuchenautes (you'll find some great stuff :D ) I understand a lot of shots on here are of the Milkyway. I have few amazing ones to come but my first post is this timelapse sequence that I made from over 1200 images of sunrise, sunset and the moonrise. I hope to watch this will brighten up your day! On the day before new year's eve, @prady_bala and I decided to drive to Utah and it was the first time that everything worked out fine although we had decided just 3 hours before hitting the road. We managed to visit Monument Valley, Canyonlands NP, Arches NP and Kaibab Lake on our way back; hiking and shooting photographs in the freezing weather and with almost no sleep and limited supplies for over 2 days. But the reward was witnessing one of the best sunsets and sunrises over some of the epic landscapes I have been to. I shot all the images using my Canon 5D mkII combined with Rokinon 24mm f1.4 and Canon EF 70-300mm f4-5.6 lenses. The images were then processed using Lightroom, LightRoom timelapse and iMovie app. (Music: Mountains by Han Zimmer) #beautifuldestinations #landscapephotography #nationalparkgeek #hdrphotography #hdr #gf_hdr #universetoday #natgeospace #natgeotravel #southwest #desertsouthwest #bbcearth #bbctravel Want to be featured?
