So we are supposed to stay within about a few miles of home .
Well last night I was taking photographs of something 205,751,888,000,000,000,000 miles away.
So that's one way to look at lockdown.


I hr 20 mins of the Leo Triplet (needs a lot more really).

Great stuff, really like that image and the sentiment! I only got into this all in Nov but I am using every clear night (not many sadly) to get off this planet 😛 Visual only at the moment though but its definitely good for the mental health to stop worrying about what is going on and gaze at things very, very, very far away!

Yes, these guys are outside our Local Group. They're being whisked away from us at about 700 kilometres (430 miles) per second by the expansion of the universe. Mind-boggling stuff!

👍👍

Yup, some carefully shaped and aligned glass and we get transported from the everyday to the extraordinary mysteries of the universe within which we live.

A few hundred yrs ago none of this was even known about.  You gotta just luv what a scope can do, it's truly magical really ;)

Nice image - some lovely details visible!
