Astro-Imaging in Bosoboso March 30, 2014

Imaging the night sky in Antipolo, Philippines, last March 29-30, 2014 with fellow astrophotography enthusiasts. I was able to visually observe some Messier objects near Sagittarius, along with the Milky Way, which is now well-placed in the southern horizon at around 3-4 am. I will be posting  images soon.

M33_PinwheelGalaxy_50mmf1.8_20sec,ISO1600

The Triangulum Galaxy (sometimes referred to as Pinwheel Galaxy) is the most distant object that can be seen with the unaided eye, approximately 3 million light-years from Earth. This wide-field image of the Triangulum Galaxy was taken with a Canon 450D DSLR and a 50 mm f/1.8 kit lens, ISO 1600, 30 sec exposure, on November 11, 2012 under the dark clear skies of Boso-boso, Rizal, Philippines. The low surface brightness of Triangulum Galaxy makes it an extremely difficult target to observe visually in light-polluted skies. Photo Credit: Anthony Urbano.
