J1407b ( la Super-Saturne ) est une planète qui est situé à 434 années lumières ( 1 AL = 9500 milliards de kilomètres )de la terre et sa masse serait d’environ 100 masses lunaires. Comme vous pouvez constater sur la photo du dessus c’est une planète qui à un très grand système d’anneaux, 37 anneaux qui s’étendent sur plus de 120 millions de kilomètres. Si elle aurait été à la place de Saturne nous pourrions la voir dans le ciel comme sur la photo du dessous.
One of my favorite landscape images because of it’s majestic subjects.
A few thoughts about the scene itself - the foreground is the Crateri Silvestri located on the Etna - which is considered among the most active volcanoes of the Earth - at around 2000m elevation. The landscape of the volcano creates an extraterrestrial impression that is further enhanced by the shining core of our Milky Way galaxy surrounded by thousands of stars. The two dominant celestial objects are the yellowish/reddish star called Antares, and with the white glow the giant planet of our Solar system, the Saturn. Antares is a star that has entered the red supergiant state, which means it’s dying process has started. It is approximately 550 light years away, which means that the light, my camera captured on this photograph has left the star when king Matthias has got his crown in the Hungarian history. Antares guides us to one of the great constellations of the sky, the Zodiac’s Scorpius, the celestial scorpion, one of the few constellations that actually looks like what it represents. Scorpius is the scorpion that stung Orion the hunter to death in mythology.
To put all of this into one photograph fascinates me to explore the infinity and beyond.

Views of Jupiter and Saturn through telescope. First view of Jupiter is straight out of camera (Sony A6300) mounted directly on a Celestron 8SE telescope (Schmidt-cassegrain) without going through the eyepiece - so it’s a very small dot. The second Jupiter photo is highly cropped so it appears larger. The three Saturn photos were cropped similarly so that detail would be easier to see but these photos were taken through a Celestron 127mm SLT telescope (Maksutov-cassegrain). The interesting thing about these images is that they were taken with an inexpensive consumer camera that is not designed for astronomical use. Although not Sony’s top of the line sensor, all their sensors have continued to improve with remarkably low digital noise levels.
West coasters: go outside just after sunset to see a beautiful sight. You can perfectly trace the plane of the solar system (the ecliptic) by making an arc across the southern horizon connecting the 5 brightest objects visible in the sky now: the Moon, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars!
