We ask the question, what’s up in the sky? Be rest assured it’s not what you’ve seen on Star Trek, or any movie or CGI graphics. Camera technology today allows us to look far up in the firmament to ponder how near these beautiful orbs of energy really are to us.

Enjoy a Super Zoom in with a Nikon P900 model digital camera at 83x zoom. We think that the way the “light” behaves from the moon regardless of phase is notable <in relation to the Sun>.
WOW, Nikon’s digital camera technology nowadays is mind-blowing, the fact we mortal humans can now zoom in on a “Moon” or “Planet” or whatever we see with our own eyes is empowering.
Can you imagine we could have high definition pictures of our Earth <Heart> available to us online right now considering the high mega-pixel camera technology we have in our Smartphones? They should mount a high def camera on the ISS or other “satellite” so that we can see our Earth clearly (without Photoshop manipulation), like these Moon shots:
That Star’s name is Vega! It looked different this night; these pictures were taken very stably on a tripod. The capture was very still, with the shutter set to the 10 second timer which allowed further stabilization of the image/focus.
The purpose of the this website is to show pictures of the Sky above us as realistically as is possible; raw, as seen through the lens itself. All the images posted here are raw, with no editing of the photo shapes or colours, natural. I myself find them quite amazing; my curiosity is forever piqued.
