This is one of few photos I took years ago of our Moon using real amateur astronomy equipment, a cheapish telescope and a cheap cell phone camera. But I think the result was much better than I ever thought it'd be via /r/spaceporn

A view of Titan’s liquid Ethane and Methane seas. These gases require sustained temperatures below -276F to remain liquid. It snows a layer of Benzene on the lakes which means the sludgy waves do not rise above 1 cm even if summer winds blow at 74 MPH. via /r/spaceporn

Here is another photo I took that is half astrophotography and half nature photography. via /r/spaceporn

I make (and then photograph) planets. Meatball, Made of meat, fat, and grease via /r/spaceporn

Saturn's rings in ultraviolet. The ring system begins from the inside out with the D,C,B,A rings followed by the F,G,E rings. The red in the image indicates sparser ringlets likely made of dirty & possibly smaller particles than in the icier turquoise ringlets. via /r/spaceporn

Nested in Pavo, the Peacock constellation, two galaxies are merging into one while the rapidly growing black hole (AGN) in the smaller one is using its larger peer as a food source. Credit: NASA, Chandra X-ray Observatory. via /r/spaceporn

[OC] Improving at photography, snagged this photo of Jupiter via /r/spaceporn

A planet is first pulled away from its parent star by the gravity of the dense concentration of stars in a globular cluster. When such a planet passes too close to a white dwarf,it can be torn apart by the intense tidal force of the white dwarf.The planetary debris is then heated & glows in X-rays. via /r/spaceporn

These weird looking moons of Saturn are interesting, in that they accumulate so much material from Saturn’s rings that they looked flattened out. More info - via /r/spaceporn

The Crescent Nebula (NGC 6888) swims through glowing hydrogen gas. About midway between the Crescent and the bottom of the image is the much fainter Soap Bubble Nebula. Credit: Nicolas Kizilian from Auffargis, France via /r/spaceporn

NGC 3486, an intermediate barred spiral galaxy located about 27.4 million light-years away from earth in the constellation of Leo Minor. The black hole at its center is thought to be less than a million times the mass of the sun, which is really, really small (image credit:Adam Block) via /r/spaceporn

Galileo: Beyond Earth via /r/spaceporn

The irregular galaxy NGC 4485 shows all the signs of having been involved in a hit-and-run accident with a bypassing galaxy. Rather than destroying the galaxy, the chance encounter is spawning a new generation of stars, and presumably planets. [3213 x 2836] via /r/spaceporn
