I decided to play around with my new telescope and Astronomik filters on Saturday night, even though it was a full moon. I made my target for the night, the very first deep sky object i ever imaged Messier 17 (M17), the Omega Nebula.
The Omega Nebula, is a famous star-forming nebula located in the southern constellation Sagittarius.
The diffuse emission nebula lies near the constellation’s northern border with Scutum, at a distance of 5,000 to 6,000 light years from Earth. It has an apparent magnitude of 6.0. M17 is also known as the Swan Nebula, Lobster Nebula, Horseshoe Nebula and Checkmark Nebula.
The Omega Nebula is part of a larger cloud which is about 40 light years in diameter. The nebula has an estimated mass of 800 solar masses, while the cloud has approximately 30,000 solar masses.
The Omega Nebula’s reddish colour is the result of hot hydrogen gas being illuminated by newly formed stars in the nebula. M17 contains a large amount of dark obscuring material, which is also heated by the hot young stars, and can be seen in infrared wavelengths.
Вуди Харрельсон признался, что некогда отказался от главной роли
в драме Кэмерона Кроу "Джерри Магуайер", о чём впоследствии пожалел 🎭
Фильм 1996 года, главная роль в котором досталась Тому Крузу, заработал $273 млн и был номинирован на "Оскар" 🌟 Возможно, именно поэтому Вуди согласился играть в комедии "Добро пожаловать в Zомбилэнд", от которой хотел отказаться из-за одного слова "зомби" в названии 🧟♂️🧟♀️
There are many stars in the sky tonight, but only one shines through my heart. That is you--the star of my life 🤩🌟❤️

First Astro session back in the Southern Hemisphere last night!
It was a quick little shoot, rushing out to Jacks Point to beat the moon rise for a panorama idea that I was a bit late for 😅 I decided to get some selfies anyway as the moonlight in the sky made for some great silhouette contrast 👌
I got 3 good ones but couldn’t pick, so I got you guys to help pick in my stories & this one (number 2) was by far the winner!!
I slapped together the pano too but it’s a bit messy and warped.. If you really want to see it & ask nicely in the comments I might post it later 😉

I'm going to walk alone
And I will return blessed
Heading to the stars
I become one of them
Even lost in the dark,
I bring in my vision the cosmos to Earth
I'm going beyond, I'm going to dance, I'm going to travel
I'm going to jump into the sea, and then later,
whatever the tide brings
