Star trails and meteor.

"Arrived to the campsite then realized someone turned on the stars ... First shot is the star trails, the second is only the meteors."

Joe Perchetti was in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania when he got these shots on July 23.

He used a Canon t41

The Oasis restaurant is know for gorgeous sunset views over Lake Travis in Austin, TX.  This was the crescent moon on 7/18/15 when it got within a few degrees of Venus and was visible at sunset. The water tower is one of the identifying icons of the restaurant. The combination of two exposures was needed to bring out the definition of the moon and light and color tones of the tower.

Last night 's Waxing gibbous moon

⇒ When I took this picture, the sky of Brittany (France) was still blue because of the sunlight.

⇒ This image is in fact composed of 149 photos stacked with registax software and taken with a canon 600D at prime focus of a Newtonian telescope 200/800.

Photo of the Moon and Saturn taken July 25, 2015. Took a photo of the moon in focus and then a photo of Saturn and laid the photos over top one another so neither planet or moon was over Saturated.
