M16 - the Eagle Nebula from last night. 0.2m f3.9 telescope. 8 min L, 2 minutes each R, G, and B. This is an active star formation nebula approximately 7000 ly distant. The famous Hubble "Pillars of Creation" are in this nebula and can be seen in the centre of this image.

Reading a book is essentially staring at the tattooed remains of a tree and hallucinating for several hours.

A new mastodon instance for the (english speaking) #OpenStreetMap community! It's under construction, but might be a nice place for #OSM people!

Hello. I like it when people greet you at the beginning of their posts. It's like they're walking up to the Internet Podium and getting ready to give a speech.

This is the Hubble extreme deep field. With the exception of (from what I can find) 3 foreground stars, every object you see in this picture is a galaxy. Can you find the foreground stars? Know the trick?

The arcs around the two galaxies in the centre of this Hubble image are caused by the light from galaxies behind the galaxy cluster in the centre being bent by the gravity of the cluster. This is gravitational lensing.

M17- the Omega or Swan Nebula is a star formation region about 5000ly from us. It glows red because the young stars excite the gas of the nebula.

I'm sad that Mastodon seems to be getting more and more passive-aggressive and mean-spiritedly cliquish as time goes on. It's starting to feel like the worst of Tumblr culture in a lot of ways. Over the last few days I've pre-emptively muted notifications for several posts because I can predict the replies I'm going to get and I'd rather not see them.

I don't think it has to be that way. I think we can all do better. Exercise compassion for others, and maybe think twice about our next subtoots.
