Earth Science Picture of the Day

Got today’s Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) with a very deep image of the M42 region.  Added narrowband H-alpha and wideband near infrared add a lot to the data in this image.  In particular the infrared data brings out many stars that are not so visible in standard RGB images.

Many thanks to Jim at EPOD who continues to publish my work.

Today’s Earth Science Picture of the Day is my 2-frame narrowband + RGB image of the Veil nebula in Cygnus.

Thank you Jim at EPOD for continuing to publish my work :)

Today’s EPOD is the 3-D microscopy version of the Cabbage White Butterfly Eggs photographed by yours truly and turned into a stunning 3-D image by Dr. Brian May.

Brian made a suggestion as to how you could get an apparent baseline under a microscope to be able to make a stereograph – and as you can see the technique worked!!

I am now able to make 3-D images of anything I photograph through the microscope.  In addition of course, each of the 2 images is also a stacked focus-stacked image using Helicon Focus in order to get the depth of field.

Today’s Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) is the large DSS2 data mosaic I put together of the Tulip nebula region in Cygnus.

DSS2 data was downloaded (red and blue channels) and Noel Carboni’s actions were used to create an artificial green channel.  The RGB data was then further processed in Photoshop CS3 before the individual frames were stitched together using Registar.

This is EPOD number 69 – thank you Jim for continuing to publish my work :)

Got today’s EPOD with a winter-to-summer solstice solargraph using a 4-inch diameter drainpipe and a piece of A4 size photopaper :)

Thank you Jim at EPOD for continuing to publish my work.

Got today’s Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) with an image of Aldebaran and the Hyades (which coincidentally also makes an appearance in the May 2015 issue of Astronomy Now magazine).  Taken with the Canon 200mm lens at f#4 I had to “overdo” the 4-pointed artificial star spikes to try and cover up the 8-spikes generated by the lens aperture – I don’t like 8-pointed bright stars.  Thank you Jim at EPOD for continuing to publish work from the New Forest Observatory :)

Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) today http://epod.usra.edu/ is my Carbon Stars of Kemble’s Cascade image :)

Thank you Jim for continuing to publish my work.  Must say, that one came out particularly sparkly :) :)

Got today’s “EPOD encore” with the frost covered spider webs shot.

Good to see that old one again Jim :)
