FTFY, subby.

Those are badass. I bet after they looked at the first one they said, "Oh... we need to take a lot more of these."

I'm getting sick of Don Pettit.

Stacked, not long, but no one except Photoshop heads will care, really.

PC LOAD LETTER: Stacked, not long, but no one except Photoshop heads will care, really.


I'm unfamiliar with the term, how does it differ from long exposure?

the_sidewinder: PC LOAD LETTER: Stacked, not long, but no one except Photoshop heads will care, really.

CCDs have a saturation limit (so does film), so a single long exposure results in too many photons for the sensor to handle. Stacking a series of shorter exposures allows photon counts to accumulate beyond the saturation limit, greatly increasing the dynamic range of the resulting image.

I'm sick of him being so AWESOME. Keep on keepin' on, spaceman.

common sense is an oxymoron: the_sidewinder: PC LOAD LETTER: Stacked, not long, but no one except Photoshop heads will care, really.

oo thanks! I have a hack program for my canon point and shoot so i can run very long exposures.. but they just dont turn out like my old film camera shots.. will have to do some googin' about stacking.

Thank you for this submission, and thank you to 100 Watt Walrus for pointing out there was a Flickr link that I initially missed.

Wow, pretty pictures. I can't think of anything on which that eleventy godzillion dollars would be better spent.
 
2012-06-16 03:47:05 AM  
Pics! In! SPAAAAAAACE!

Since you people don't seem to understand ALL OF THE BENEFITS OF SCIENCE AND SPACE RESEARCH we thought we'd distract you with some related shiny things.

Somehow, I missed SevenisGud's post (I think I know why that is....)

Anyway, much of the things that Pettit does that makes it into the national news
is stuff that he does in his off-duty time in space. Read about the barn-door tracker that he build out of salvaged parts on the ISS in 2002-2003. A lot of his off-duty time during that flight was spent creating "Saturday Morning Science" a free, educational program explaining scientific phenomenon that he was able to demonstrate.

I had the privilege of hearing him speak at a conference of ISE educators at the Kennedy Space Center. He started his talk with a bit of an apology for the fact that he continues to stay fascinated by the events he's able to observe during his time in space (or in Antarctica). Basically, he is a self-proclaimed Science Geek. At those meetings, he had nothing to apologize for; he was with a group of like-minded people.

Awesome link subby!

I was chillin' in the jacuzzi today when my friend started talking about how pictures looked with four to five minute exposure times.
Threadjacked his intro, and described the photo's in TFA. Look it up, I suggested, grabbing his mobile from his hands., a few thumb-clicks, and SPACE!!

/share with dad and grandpa
//why did they not bring a slr up there, and a photo processing lab, and Ansel Adams' ghost.... Oops, in color.
///the best has been describing red5ish's ps
