For Jose Mitanos The sky is not the limit but rather the expansion into the sky, a window that offers thousands of opportunities to see the life and splendor of the universe. For years, this man from Coahuila has dedicated himself to photographing galaxies, constellations or nebulae, and his passion for exploring space has been recognized before. United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA for short) that has chosen photos from Photoastronome for posting on its official website and identifies them as featured images for the day.
The NASA He shared four photos of Ruffled. The last identification was made in early January and is a photo of Magellan’s clouds. Our Milky Way contains two small companion galaxies that can be seen with the naked eye from the Southern Hemisphere: Clouds of Magellan. These things are named after Ferdinand Magellan, the famous European navigator who sailed around the Earth between 1519 and 1522 (??). These regions are very rich in ionized hydrogen and fortunately they are easy to capture with hobbyist equipment, using narrow band filters. That is to say: separate snapshots that are then combined to make a larger field image, puzzle rate; To achieve this image, Matanus required eight Telesalas ?? To include the entire cloud.
On his blog: mtanous.wordpres.com, he not only shares his photos of space, but also provides some astronomy data. Pictures of Las Hades, Nebula de la Pepa and 47 Tucana are some of the pictures that the Mexican shared on his blog, and when NASA saw them, they let fans of the universe know about his work, through the site Astronomy Photo of the Day (APOD).
Among the difficulties I encountered in astrophotography were the curved perspectives resulting from photographing space from Earth, which Matanus was able to overcome thanks to his experience.
Although some of his images have been achieved in other countries, Monclovense admits that many others are made in Mexico, near the capital of Coahuila, where the brightness of artificial light can make space images difficult, and thus his goal in short the deadline is to equip the rural observatory Your own and make it ready in Spring 2021, With a dream not only that NASA Spread your efforts, but the world may find in your photos an inspiration to look at the sky more, inspiration and hope.
