Does anybody know what this is? I shot it about 2 months back during a meteor shower. It looks like a galaxy to me, but I'm not quite sure. The 4 exposures range in time from 6-30 seconds.


Sure does look like a galaxy, or at least a nebula!

Surely is doesn't matter what people post does it?

You post your photos for feedback and can skip past the daft comments / photos :)

Of course it matters what other people post. The whole reason for coming to this community is because of what other people post.

How did you catch such a detailed photo of space? It does look like a galaxy


Nikon D90, 28mm f1.8 @ f1.8 and 6-30 seconds. I went out to an uninhabited area in the SF Bay area (click the image to view the map on flickr for the exact location) that is about as dark as you can get in the area.

I was shooting for meteors, but got this instead. I guess I'm happy with it, though!

Holly hell! We're pregnant?!!! bout time :p Congradz!!! and STAY back :p

There you go, almost looks like its some crazy design now :p



you got talent :p !

I had made an active decision to stop posting in the Neowin Digital Gallery. I found issue with the fact that people would post images of scantily dressed women (which is fine), and that some of the users would follow with undignified comments that I felt did not belong on a forum in which art, ideas and critique were shared. I brought up the issue and nobody seemed to feel the same way, so I decided to stop sharing my images.

It has been quite some time since then, and with odd timing related to Guppy's post, about two weeks ago I decided to start posting here again. Since I "left" the Digital Gallery, I've started working a full time job and I'm 3/5 done with my MBA; as such, free time for photography is quite limited.

Now, for the image I came to post!

Well i'll admit, I spam "id hit that" any where and everywhere, followed by a serious comment though :p Seriously crazzy, even @ dpreview, you get lots of horny instagramers :/ ! You do have a point though, but why quit posting on childish posts? there are ignore buttons you know!
Might wanna lay off capturing other galaxies or they might take you!!! Nice catch! I would've just discarded it as shutter blur or something alike. !

Ps and the same goes for you, STAY back :p

I've been tryin to get some night shots of the starts. I can't get the iso and shutter time right, but eventually i'll get there.
i had to tweak this one in photoshop (mostly blurred it to get rid of the noise),


also some of the stars are streaking, this is due to the shutter time being too long. i think it was maybe 15-20 sec in this pic.



Not that bad! Welcome to the digital gallery. Could've curtain synced the stop sign to light it up a bit.

Would you believe me if i told you that photo was taken with cheap Walmart $50 blackfriday kodak camera?

I recently got a Canon t2i, so i can take more complex photos though. I know its not super pro, but it works. For example the night pictures.
But i still like to use cheap cameras for some shots.

thanks :D

No, I wouldn't! pretty amazing shot

Just proves http://www.kenrockwe...h/notcamera.htm this guy has a point ;) He has pretty good basic articles, just don't read his equipment reviews, he biases them according to how he feels that day, one day it's canon, the next it's nikon and then back to canon... But again, his begginer "guides" are a good starting point.

Wow, I'd love to live somewhere we got those temps... in the tropics I think 3-5 celsius nasty humid,moist,watery is all we get :p

Couple of shots from december taken with work camera (Canon somemodel, shockproof and waterproof)
