      • ESOcast 64: First Ring System Around Asteroid

        This ESOcast shows how observations at many sites in South America, including ESO’s La Silla Observatory, have made the surprise discovery that the remote asteroid Chariklo is surrounded by two dense and narrow rings. This is the smallest object by far found to have rings and only the fifth body in the Solar System — after the much larger planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune — to have this feature. The origin of these rings remains a mystery, but they may be the result of a collision that created a disc of debris.

              Ex nihilo means 'out of nothing'. Simple geometric functions are assigned to the four forces (strong, weak, electromagnetic, gravitational). Rough calculations are made for the observed gross properties of the universe.

                    • Using Photoshop Layer Masks To Maximize Astronomical Data


                      from Charlie Warren / Added

                      Tutorial supplement to the article in the spring 2014 edition of Amateur Astronomy Magazine. It deals with creating layer masks to maximize data from short and long exposures of astronomical targets with a large dynamic range. In this session, I am combining a stack of 20 second exposures with a stack of 4 minute exposures to maximize the detail in the core and the outer regions of nebulosity.
