Hello friends science addicts! Today I bring you one with some very interesting photos that I hope will serve to motivate you to investigate a little more about one of the most spectacular sciences of all! I personally became addicted to the observation of celestial bodies, and it is impossible to get bored when we observe things with our telescope since we always discover some new object! in this month of may there are a couple of interesting things an eclipse that could be seen in the southern hemisphere and of course the "eta aquaridas" which is a meteor shower!๐ŸŒŒ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ•

Hola amigos adictos a la ciencia! hoy les traigo un con algunas fotos muy interesantes y que espero sirvan para motivarte a indagar un poco mas sobre una de las ciencias mas espectaculares de todas! yo personalmente me hice adicto a la observacion de cuerpos celestiales, y es que es imposible aburrirse cuando observamos cosas con nuestro telescopio ya que siempre descubrimos algun objeto nuevo! en este mes de mayo hay un par de cosas interesantes un eclipse que pudo ser visto en el hemisferio sur y claro la "eta acuaridas" que es una lluvia de meteoros!๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ

Obviously what we observe in the sky depends on factors such as: "the power of our telescope, our experience and the area of observation" all this can limit our field of vision so we would not observe anything and at this point science becomes "boring "! so we can take as an example that famous "dictation" "do not judge a book by its cover" making astronomical observation is more complex than we think but when we master the techniques it is a very fun activity! defining astronomy is easy let's say it is a science that studies the "behavior" of the stars, from its beginnings to the laws that govern them!๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“
Obviamente lo que observamos en el cielo depende de factores tales como: "la potencia de nuestro telescopio, nuestra experiencia y el area de observacion" todo esto puede limitar nuestro campo de vision entonces no observariamos nada y en este punto la ciencia se hace "aburrida"! por lo que podemos poner de ejemplo aquel famoso "dictado" "no juzgar un libro por su capa" hacer observacion astronomica es algo mas complejo de lo que pensamos pero cuando dominamos las tecnicas es una actividad muy divertida! definir astronomia es facil digamos que es una ciencia que estudia el "comportamiento" de los astros, desde sus inicios hasta las leyes que los rigen!๐ŸŒ•๐Ÿช๐Ÿ”ญ

There are theories that express "that the universe is infinite" others that it is "finite" finite or infinite is too big and produces in us that feeling of "curiosity"! many of us think that our universe is so big that we could achieve very interesting things, some others difficult to explain! and then those who think that there is some form of intelligent life beyond! all these curiosities push us to want to study this beautiful science and want to discover stars and planets! and who removes if we are lucky a comet that would bear our name!๐ŸŒ•๐Ÿช๐Ÿšฉ
Hay teorias que expresan "que el universo es infinito" otros que es "finito" finito o infinito es demasiado grande y produce en nosotros aquel sentimiento de "curiosidad"! muchos pensamos que es tan grande nuestro universo que podriamos conseguir cosas muy interesantes, algunas otras dificil de explicar! y luego aquellos que piensan que mas alla existe alguna forma de vida inteligente! todas estas curiosidades nos empujan a querer estudiar esta hermosa ciencia y querer descubrir estrellas y planetas! y quien quita si tenemos suerte algun cometa que llevaria nuestro nombre!๐ŸŒ•๐Ÿ”ญ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“

May Events๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸซEventos de mayo๐Ÿง ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Our first event in May was a lunar eclipse luckily I couldn't see it here in my area because the weather didn't allow it! the next day I saw this beautiful full moon that I wanted to photograph to show them to you! And since we are writing about astronomy and astronomical phenomena, we will start with the lunar eclipse, which is when our earth "interposes" between the sun and the moon, making a dark figure on the natural satellite!๐Ÿ‘€๐ŸŒ•๐ŸŒ—๐ŸŒ’
Nuestro primer evento en mayo fue un eclipse lunar para mi suerte no pude observarlo aqui en mi zona porque el clima no me lo permitio! al dia siguiente observe esta linda luna llena que la quise fotografiar para mostrarselas! y ya que estamos escribiendo sobre astronomia y fenomenos astronomicos empezamos por el eclipse lunar que es cuando nuestra tierra se "interpone" entre el sol y la luna haciendo una figura oscura en el satelite natural!๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ”ญ

raven constellation๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸซConstelacion del cuervo๐Ÿง ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Despite not being an astronomical event, I was able to photograph the constellation of the raven, and I had an outstanding debt with me because last year I couldn't, it seemed to me that this month is the best to study it! and according to the bibliographical references the raven can be fully visible in "may" so it was my chance! It is not a modern constellation, it had already been described by Ptolemy, and it is not easy to find it in the sky either because its magnitudes are a bit high, between 6-5! These numbers are too large to be seen with the "naked" eye.๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿคฏ
Apesar de no ser un eventro astronomico pude fotografiar la constelacion del cuervo, y tenia una deuda pendiente conmigo porque el aรฑo pasado no consegui, me parecio que este mes es el mejor para estudiarlo! y segun las referencias bibliograficas el cuervo puede ser completamente visible en "mayo" asi que era mi oportunidad! no es una constelacion moderna ya habia sido descrita por Ptolomeo, y tampoco es facil de conseguirla en el cielo porque tiene magnitudes un poco alta, entre 6-5! estos numeros son muy grandes para poder ser visto a ojo "desnudo" ๐Ÿ”ญ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ’ฅ

These photos are some "messier" that are close to the constellation of the raven and the constellation of virgo, there are more than 20 astronomical bodies here among them clusters of stars and galaxies, and that is why I love astronomy for an inexperienced eye they are points bright but when we learn and read a little more we manage to distinguish the "bright spots".๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
Estas fotos son algunos "messier" que estan proximos de la constelacion del cuervo y la constelacion de virgo, hay mas de 20 cuerpos astronomicos aqui entre ellos cumulos de estrellas y galaxias, y es por lo que amo la astronomia para un ojo inexperto son puntos brillantes pero cuando aprendemos y leemos un poco mas conseguimos distiguir los "puntos brillantes".๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ

There is another important phenomenon that is seen in the month of May and it is the famous "eta aquaridas" meteor shower that can be seen without using a telescope but you must be in an area without light pollution! Do you remember the famous Halley's Comet? who will visit us in 2061? well this meteor shower is the product of its "walk" around the solar orbit! This shower of comets last more than 70 years! these particles when they hit our atmosphere create these movements!๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ‘€
Existe otro fenomeno importante que es visto en el mes de mayo y es la famosa lluvia de meteoro de "eta acuaridas" que puede ser vista sin necesidad de usar telescopio pero debes estar en una zona sin contaminacion luminica! recuerdas el famoso cometa Halley?? que nos visitara en el 2061? bueno esta lluvia de meteoros es producto de su "paseo" por la orbita solar! esta lluvia de cometas duran mas de 70 aรฑos! estas particulas cuando impactan con nuestra atmosfera crean estos movimientos!๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿคฏ

Something tells me that astronomy is one of the oldest sciences in our history because civilizations such as "Aztecs, Greeks, Chinese" used their studies of the sky to discover things and attribute names! and since then science has evolved to such an extent that it is capable of detecting objects in the universe millions of light years away!๐Ÿ”ญ๐Ÿ”ญ
Algo me dice que la astronomia es una de las ciencias mas antiguas de nuestra historia porque ya civilizaciones como "aztecas, griega, china" empleaban sus estudios al cielo para descubrir cosas y atribuir nombres! y desde entonces la ciencia a evolucionado a tal punto que es capaz de detectar objetos en el universo a millones de aรฑos luz! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐ŸŒŒ

I really enjoy all these pictures. At some point, I may just cross the line and buy a small telescope. I am sure my son will love it! :)

How much does it cost to buy a telescope like that? I am into astrophotography but so far, I can only capture the moon and I wanna go beyond that.

Hello, this is "average" about 600 because it comes with the equatorial mount, but I recommend buying the subony camera adapter for better quality in your photos! In 1200 you buy a very decent one to see nearby galaxies!

Thank you for replying! it's good to know the estimates ๐Ÿ˜ƒ and 12000 is very reasonable given like you said, I could see nearby galaxies.
