"Forgotten Skies"

The Milkyway [core] Season may have ended, but the season of the "anti-core" has commenced. Looking away from the galactic core, the outer galactic plane is no match for the core's brilliant brightness. However, this part of the night sky is filled with the wonderful colours of sweeping nebulas and fantastic deep sky objects. Despite the awesome beauty, this part of the sky is a difficult nightscape challenge. The dimmer sky means the foreground is darker. Wait for moonlight and the colours of the nebulas quickly become washed out. Expose for longer and the stars saturate and panoramas become problematic. Its difficulty has meant that these skies are not commonly found in nightscapes, and why I've titled this image (by no means a good image) - the forgotten skies.

This image was taken at Yenyening Lakes, Western Australia. Upon a small and deceptively dry salt lake (its thick mud hidden under a thin crust of salt) I pose amongst long dead trees that the rise up out of the lake long skeletal fingers. The outer plane of the Milkyway arcs overhead revealing its subtle colours and wonderous deep sky objects. From the left is the California nebula, the Pleiades, then the Orion and Horsehead nebulas embraced in the arms of Barnard's Loop, the Rosette nebula, the Vela supernova remnant, the Carina nebula, and the Coal Sack dark nebula. In the top right is the Large Magellanic Cloud, and the pale green dot in the top left is the comet 46P/Wirtanen. Throughout the sky there are streaks of green and orange/red caused by chemiluminescence of the atmosphere.

I used an Skywatcher StarAdventurer sky tracking mount to take this 40 x panel mosaic. A Canon EOS6d (modified) was used through a Canon 50mm f/1.2 lens stopped down to f/3.2. All camera and lens settings were kept the same for all panels, and all shots were taken one immediately after the other. The tracking mount was used for the sky and turned off for the foreground panels. Stitching in PTGui, colour balance, noise reduction, saturation and some brightness / contrast adjustment in Photoshop. Details below.

Details as follows:

| 2018-12-08 | Yenyening Lakes, Western Australia | EOS6D modified | Canon 50 f1.2 lens | @f/3.2 | UV/IR cut-filter | ISO1600 | 25s | 40 x panels | Skywatcher StarAdventurer mount |

Enjoy,
Will Vrbasso.

The icy satellites Dione and Rhea do their best impression of a snowman in a newly released photo captured by NASA's late Cassini spacecraft.

The striking scene is a trick of perspective, of course. Dione, the snowman's head, was about 685,000 miles (1.1 million kilometers) from Cassini when the image was taken, whereas Rhea was much farther away, at a distance of about 995,000 miles (1.6 million km).

While Youtube's premium original content has not taken off like Netflix or Amazon the breath of content seems to make up for it in emerging markets
Not many folks probably pay for Youtube Premium for the Cobra Kai, Origins, Sideswiped or others, they pay for the ad removal and maybe the free all access music. but in the long run is more freeform content of youtube giving it more of a foothold in markets like India than a Netflix with its curated library of reruns and original shows?
