Mercury's Sodium Tail

Mercury’s Sodium Tail

Accepting the high challenge of shooting the currently significantly well-capturable Mercury’s Sodium tail, I tried to make the record with no narrow-band filter, but only with full spectrum Baader BCF modified camera. Considering the bright short wavelengths are highly scattered due to the atmospheric extinction low over the horizon, the only colours to be captured…

The Cove of Aquarius

The Cove of Aquarius

The Seč lake, May 8th, 2021, in the morning just before the daybreak. Truly calm water by ashore where a moored barge takes the central stage while majestic summer Milky Way appears in the sky. And then it happens – a green bright meteor on left just “heats the heavens” and makes a truly beautiful…

The Living Years

“I wasn’t there that morning when my father passed away. I didn’t get to tell him all the things I had to say” sings Mike&Mechanics in their legendary song. The exact words and the song itself came to my mind a few days ago when sitting on this shore of the Seč lake. My father…

Mars, Taurus clusters, and Molecular Clouds

Mars, Taurus clusters, and Molecular Clouds

Planet Mars (bright object bottom) gets angularly closest to the Pleiades star cluster in the Taurus constellation on March 3rd, 2021. It is the closest conjunction of the Red Planet to the cluster until 2038. Just days before this moment, the planet was as bright as the star Aldebaran (left), the brightest star and a…
