Hi all,

Here are some frames of Corona Australis taken in August 2012 and processed recently.


This is taken with FSQ-106ED and modified EOS 5Dmk2, cropped.



You can download the original frame via the link below. Actions > View all sizes > Original

This is an enhanced version with the same optics before cropping.

Thanks mmalik,

I took these frames at 11,000 feet above sea level near MLO, Mauna Loa Observatory on the shoulder of Mauna Loa in The Big Island, Hawaii



This is a view toward the west taken at the public parking near the MLO.

You can see some facilities of the observatory near the left edge.
There are some strong red lights near the top of the tall tower.
We can drive up beyond the site with 4WD. I tried once and went near to trouble.

Hiro, terrific images. I'd like to say thanks for sharing the same object with different optics. It makes for a different perspective and gives me ideas.

Thanks all for so many encouraging words.

Kevin,
The series help me process frames. I always begin processing of the widest frame and end with the closest one. Wider frames help me recognize what there are in processing of closer frames. I can not process frames of dust-rich area properly without results of wider frame.

Thanks all for that kind and warm words.

I am now feel like driving beyond the paved road to view the western horizon.
It may be risky for me to drive up on the unpaved and unstable lava rocks, but it must be rewarding.

Very nice images Hiro-san! I was wondering if you can give us some insights regarding planning an astro-holiday there.

thanks!
Nicola

Thanks Nicola,

The constellation of Corona Australis is near Scorpius and Saggitarius.
It may be visible near the left lower corner in the following widefield frame.
