    Is there a source for this image? The moon certainly seems to be disproportionately large.

    I’ve been watching our space program since the Mercury program.

    This picture cannot be overappreciated. It is a big fucking deal to have a little robot on mars.

    All Thanks to the wizards of the Jet Propulsion Lab. All bow to JPL.

    It's crazy to think we live in a time where I'm casually sitting behind my desk looking at a picture of another planet's surface where a robot is roaming around created and run by human beings.

    Is the image purposely cropped like that or the rover has that shape?

    What are those cool looking black rocks and where did they come from? Would they be from some sort of volcanic event?

    If you want to learn how to get started in astrophotography, check out the two stickied posts on /r/AskAstrophotography


    I edited this photo awhile ago and it was my first multi night project. During this time I kept changing the spacing of the field flattener, which was probably the reason for the large amounts of chromatic aberration.

    I found it really hard to get the colour I wanted on the outer regions and the core. It took me 3 revisions to get the colour you see.

    Any comments and critique are welcome, thanks.

    I'm not even sure the Milky Way would even align with the temple...

    Somebody with a better understanding of celestial geometry than me should look into that.

    The ruins are aligned east south-east. Not sure how that compares to the 23° tilt of the Earth relative to the Sol system and 60° tilt of the Sol system relative to the Milky Way.

    I'm an astrophotographer from Boston. I travel in search of dark skies. This is a 15 image stack to reduce noise and extract detail from the sky. This is facing north-ish to avoid the core of the milky way. I envisioned this shot as a lot more peaceful and actually wanted to avoid the galactic center. It turned out exactly as I envisioned when I planned the trip.

    The Andromeda Galaxy is the faint smudge in the center left of the sky. Our nearest neighbor who will eventually collide with our own galaxy! The good news is we'll all be long dead, forgotten and extinct by then.
