Right now Chandra is studying a quasar about 6 billion light years away! When viewed in 2009, a galaxy between Chandra and the quasar acted as a lens, producing 4 images! Today's Observation: 6 hours 56 minutes Want more on info on the quasar?

Tried some #astrophotography last night fpr the first time. There was a meteor shower and I saw numerous light streaks, but alas my camera didn't seem to do the same! Thanks @katherinemeldau for the heads up. #nightphotography #nightsky #travel #southafrica #pilanesberg #wanderlust #jwphotographer #jw_photographers #jwvisuals #jw_snapshots

Just uploaded a new video on the #youtube talking about #solarfilters I hope to one day be more comfortable infront of the camera, but for now I'll be slightly awkward. #astronomy #astronomer #astrophotography #sun #meade #coronado #SolarMaxIII #70mm #halpha #lunt #50mm #seymoursolar #herschelwedge #tutorial #telescope

I've always loved capturing iconic landscapes under the soft glow of the stars, but as entry level cameras get better at low light preformance, people have to step their gear up to insane levels to set their quality apart from the crowd. Large star trackers and top of the line low light cameras and lenses have always been out of my price range, so my quality will never be up to par with theirs. So instead, I'd like to start working more on the creative side rather than absolute technical perfection. When I was in Bryce Canyon National Park earlier this year, I played around a lot with light painting. But instead of just trying to illuminate my foreground, I went a bit more abstract and ran down the switchbacks paths while keeping my headlamp always slightly pointed towards the camera to get these cool light trails and a more dynamic illumination on the trial. I really enjoyed the way that reflected light from the dirt gave a soft glow to the surrounding walls, sometimes direct light can be way too harsh. I'm excited to experiment with more light painting in the future. Do any of you have any recommendations for good LED light sticks and other tools for light painting? I'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions in the comments.
