Seen as a very faint patch in the dark winter sky, the Rosette Nebula lies in Monoceros, the constellation bordering east of Orion. The bright stars formed by its matter in the centre are known as open cluster NGC 2244.

On a chase for lightning when the sun started to set behind me. I just had to pull over and record the different play of colours.

Delle Caustiche, The Small Sagittarius Star Cloud (M24) in Sagittarius

The Small Sagittarius Star Cloud is a window into the Milky Way, which forms a rich region of the Sagitarrius spiral arm.

Very few objects can match its visual grace when seen through binoculars or low-powered telescopes. M24 occupies approximately 1x2 degrees of the sky.

This dense region of the sky contains a wonderful example of a Bernard Dark Nebula in the guise of B92 (blackened region towards the centre-right of the cloud).

The faint open cluster in the bottom left, above the pink nebulosity is NGC 6568. The circular pink nebula towards the left of the star cloud is IC1283-4.

On the right-hand side of the cloud we have the Omega/Horseshoe/Swan Nebula (M17). Between M17 and the M24 is a small open cluster; this is the Black Swan (M18) cluster.

The winning combination of bright stars, dark areas and faint nebulosity adds to the visual impact and complexity of this remarkable stellar city.

This composite consists of one set of images; one set of 16 images taken at ISO-400.
Each individual image was a 240 second exposure.
IRIS was used to calibrate each image (dark subtraction [median combined master dark] and flat field division [median combined master flat {lights and darks}]), to register, align, and finally stack.
Photoshop CS2 was used to adjust levels, curves, frame and resize the final composite.

June 4 2012. An ECL (East Coast Low pressure system) devoloped off the coast from a cold pool of air. Coffs Harbour was just far enough north to get some instability but not to much moisture to clutter up the atmosphere from the developing storms. Of course I was out to capture what Ligthning I could get!

A complex of storms over central Oklahoma unleashes electrical fury in the night sky just north of Oklahoma City. Anvil lightning galore flashes up to 70 miles ahead of the thunderstorms.

Tornado headed towards Wichita, Kansas. It was rated EF-1 after the damage survey, but later changed to a high end EF-2 based on wind speed information from the DOW.
Thankfully it lifted at the edge of the city, but still did some damage, including uprooted trees, destroyed structures, and two power flashes at the time this image was taken.
