Lone astronomer

Lone astronomer in Canyonlands: NP Canyonlands showed me how it is like to be in area with pure dark sky. It was just terrific view! Even with small telescope (10cm in diameter) we could saw galaxies, nebulas and clusters which we can't see from Czech Republic with that small telescope. I will never forget the silence and thousands of glittering stars. Canon EOS 6D, 29x13 s, Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8@3.2, ISO 8000

Amazed in Canyonlands

Canyonlands National Park: If you have any plans to visit Utah, USA, you have to spend more time in Canyonlands and Arches. These are amazing places with amazing night sky but there is one problem...dust storms. Fortunately 3 from 4 night in that area we had clear sky and there was no dust in the air, so every night me and my friend drove at least 50 miles to Canyonlands. The travelling was good, full of fun and inspiration. It was fun to see all these people going away from the park. Imediately after sunset we had started to prepare our equipment. The night sky was really amazing! When the sun went down it was really dark everywhere. But a few hours later it was like moonrise or sunrise...there was a lot of light everywhere. We did not know what was happening, but a a little bit later we realized that the Milky Way was in the zenith. It was incredible! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Panorama 36 x 8s, Canon EOS 6D, Canon 50mm f/1.4@2.0, ISO 8000.

Airglow storm

This photo describes what my first night in Utah looked like. Just one hour before it was stormy and I did not believe that I can see anything, but... This was the night of Perseids and I have to say that I have never seen that much meteors like that night. It was just awesome! I love night sky pics, but they cannot contain the feelings of the photographer even what was happening during that night...there were no sounds, I saw tenths of meteors, I was surrounded by thunderstorms, first nice structures of airglow I have ever seen...There were too much things that night.
