This is the North American Nebula, imaged in bicolor narrowband, under a practically full moon in light polluted Sacramento. How is this possible? Narrowband focuses on a very specific wavelength of light, the same wavelength that is put off by burning specific elements. In this case, hydrogen and oxygen. Everything else is filtered out, whether it's white light reflecting off the moon or light from the nearby freeway. Another fun fact about this image: it was shot using a solar telescope, the same one I use to bring you solar images. For more info about the equipment I use check the link in my bio. Some more details: 400mm focal length on a 70mm f/5.7 refractor 1 hour 40 minutes exposure time (20 x 300" frames) Processed using deep sky stacker and photoshop #teamhighpoint  #highpointscientific  #meadeinstruments 

My latest limited edition print: This evening I took my first full-disc photo of the sun and was photobombed by a turkey vulture. The sun in this image is very plain... No sunspots or large prominences, but still gorgeous. It was the perfect time to capture something interesting in the foreground. Fun fact: if the bird was the same distance as the sun it would have a wingspan of more than 300,000 miles. The link for the print is in my bio. Thanks again for all your support. ❤️
