Earth Science Picture of the Day

Got today’s EPOD with an image of Spica (Akira fujii effect added) which is timely as Spica is right now crossing our southern horizon on these mild spring evenings.

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

Got today’s EPOD with the Coma-Virgo Supercluster of Galaxies panorama.  A 2-framer taken with the Canon 200mm lenses and around 5-hours of 15-minute subs per frame.

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

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 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.
