An ancient chapel stands in front of the Milky Way in this image by Oshin D.Zakarian, who used a Canon 40D camera with 15mm lens at f/2.8 and a 30-second exposure.
When I was hanging out at the Astronomy
booth at November’s Arizona Science and Astronomy Expo in Tucson, a very nice young man from Iran came up and introduced himself. Oshin Zakarian is a very talented astroimager, is quite active with The World at Night
, and enjoys sharing his work with enthusiastic amateur astronomers everywhere.
He recently sent me one of his pictures, which I share here, and it speaks for itself.
Happy New Year!
