At the beginning of April 2019, I had the opportunity to spend the night in the observatory at Lomnický Peak in Tatra Mountains. This is the second highest peak in Tatras and the highest one, which can be reached by cable car. I have been waiting for this opportunity for several months trying to shoot in the best weather. Finally it worked, and I had an opportunity to capture some cosmic photons from Orion constellation over the highest peaks of the Tatra Mountains.
The picture shows a delicate outline of the Milky Way’s periphery running through the constellations of the Canis Majoris, Monoceros, Orion, and the constellation of Taurus. In the picture you will also find the brightest star of the night sky (Sirius – the brightest object, slightly on the left) and the very characteristic M45 Pleiades – the oper cluster of stars on the right. Over the constellation Orion there are visible nebulas M42(the brightest nebula on the sky), the Horse Head Nebula, the Flame Nebula and the Barnard’s Loop. On the left side of the Orion is also very good visibility of Rosette Nebula. The night was around -5 celsius degrees, but standing with that view on the top of the mount was absolutely fascinating experience.
