I had to catch this one early this morning, before the clouds reasserted themselves. 17 1-minute exposures stacked in Deep Sky Stacker, processed in GIMP. Quite possibly the last images I’ll take with an iPhone 6. M42 and M43
Conditions weren’t perfect last night, but the clouds were scattered enough for me to capture this shot of The Ring Nebula in Lyra.
NASA tells us the announcement of a historic discovery is in the offing, proving that there’s a little showman in all of us. Feel free to spend the next few weeks wondering about the possibilities, and to use the comments for whatever speculation springs to mind. It should be fun.
