The Jewel Box Cluster in the Crux Constellation ( NGC 4755 ) by Mike O’Day ( 500px.com/MikeODay )

Viewed through a telsecope, John Herschel described the Jewel Box Cluster as “a casket of varioulsy coloured precious stones” – hence the name. The Jewel Box, visible only from the Southern Hemisphere and appearing as a bright fuzzy star to the naked eye, is a cluster of around 100 ( mostly blue giant ) stars approximately 7000 light years from Earth.

New on 500px : The Orion Nebula and the Running Man Nebula by JoelTonyan by JoelTonyan

The Orion Nebula and the Running Man Nebula. This shot is a labor of love. All told, I’d estimate 20 hours of work went into producing this image.

Taken with a TMB92L, Hutech-modified Canon T3i DSLR, Orion SSAG autoguider and 50mm guidescope, and Celestron AVX mount. Consists of 31 300-second light frames, 25 25-second light frames, and 15 5-second light frames, plus darks, flats, and bias frames. Captured with BackyardEOS, stacked in DeepSkyStacker, and processed in Photoshop. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1PkaD9T

New on 500px : A Road to the Universe by srdjanvujmilovicphotography by srdjanvujmilovicphotography

Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.
