A Little Drop of Galaxy

Explanation: A drop of water seems to hold an entire galaxy in this creative macro-astrophotograph. In the imaginative work of cosmic nature photography a close-up lens was used to image a previously made picture of a galaxy, viewed through a water drop suspended from a stem. A favorite of many telescope-wielding astroimagers, the galaxy is the Andromeda Galaxy, also known as M31. About 100,000 light-years across that majestic galaxy’s spiral arms and dust lanes are curved and distorted in the image contained in the centimeter-sized droplet. Andromeda is some 2.5 million light-years distant, but this project was still carried out while spending time indoors.

滴里的星系

说明:在这幅颇有创意的微距天文影像里,水滴看似容纳了整个星系。为了创作出这张富想象力的天文影像,近焦镜头是一颗挂在树枝上的水滴,用以透视拍摄先前拍下的星系照片。而这个星系,则是许多拥有望远镜的天文学家热爱的仙女座星系(M31)。这个跨幅约100,000光年的宏伟星系,其螺旋臂及尘埃带,在这颗宽约一公分的水滴映像下,扭曲且变形。仙女座星系座落2百50万光年之外,不过这次的摄影作业全在室内完成的。
