I saw this on Digg and decided to post it on here.
Orion Dawn Over Mount Nemrut
Probably the best picture so far.
Finally an astronomy one - I was worried that cuts had hit Nasa to the extent that they were just posting people's holiday snaps.
Next week it was going to be childrens' drawings of the moon.
Go here, sign up and be happy. Greg takes the imagery, Noel processes the images, and APODS result. As a bonus, if you become a member of OurDarkSkies forum, you qualify for a FREE set of Noel Carboni's Photoshop/CS actions with which to process astrophotos. These are very powerful tools that took him years to develop, and he sells them, but to ODS members, they are free. Best of all, Noel and Greg post their astrophotos (including later versions with more exposure time/different focal lengths added) on ODS before the rest of the world gets to see them, along with technical details on the images' production and processing. They have a book, "Starry Vistas", IIR in production with Springer, and it is sure to be a hit. I've been watching the images evolve and improve through their posts on ODS, and the process has been really fun.
