In a galaxy far far away ....
All those stars that are round, are in our galaxy.
All those stars that look oblong/fussy, are really other galaxies, just a lot further away.
What kind of setup/gear would I need to take photos like this or let alone enable me to see this ?
You can see this galaxy with binos from a dark site but you won't see the colour, it'll look gray. I added Ha light to this image which punches up the red and shows the areas in the galaxy that are producing stars. 253 is a young galaxy, still forming, mostly dust.
Nice I spy a quite a few background galaxies there too
Sweet! I just read a few blogs, I never knew regular binos were enough to see stuff like this!
Did you some how take this using binos ? Or a telescope ? Or something else ?
It kinda depresses me that we still do not have warp drive.
Back on topic though... how do you do a photo like this? I have a good idea on how to do star trails, but what is the process for this?
