Exploring the universe from a backyard in Arizona

For the last couple years, I have fully delved into backyard astrophotography from the city. My most common question- what kind of gear is needed if someone wants to learn to take these photos? Here is a full thread on the topic. #astrophotography #space #opteam

Mars is at it's closest to Earth. Here's a photo I captured of it last night using a 14" telescope. You can clearly see the northern polar ice cap! I'm working hard to learn to overcome the challenges of planetary photography to bring you the best images of Mars at opposition.

These are my shots of Jupiter and Saturn when they were closer. They're much larger in the sky than Mars, so getting details isn't quite as challenging but still incredibly daunting. This is also "November" in my 2023 Celestial Calendar. cosmicbackground.io/products…

The best part of running my own business has to be when I'm fulfilling an order and I recognize the name. Friends and family supporting me gives me such a warm and fuzzy feeling. Also really cool recognizing the names of people I've interacted with on social media!

2 months ago, I live-tweeted an incredible event. The sun blasted a stream of plasma hundreds of thousands of miles into space. Here's a 4k image of my capture from that event, revealing all the solar details. I formatted it like this so you could use it as a desktop wallpaper.

This is also June in my 2023 Calendar, available for just a few more days. I'm currently hand-inspecting and packaging each one for this week's shipments! cosmicbackground.io/products…

Here it's formatted for a mobile phone wallpaper so I don't leave anyone out. This is one of the 26 desktop and mobile wallpapers that come free with the calendar, or you can just download it separately here: cosmicbackground.io/products…

Seriously though HOW COOL IS THIS
This is probably the most fascinating thing I've seen since I got started in astrophotography. I took a photo of hundreds of Nebulae in a completely different galaxy! These colorful splotches are where stars are born. I can't stop staring at them.

It's a close crop of this: The Triangulum Galaxy, captured with a 12" telescope over 35 hours from my backyard in Arizona. The details across this image blow my mind. "Gems of the Triangulum" is also my latest limited edition print release. Get it here: cosmicbackground.io/products…

As always, the raw data from this image is available to patrons who subscribe. Developing these images can take a long time, each image is like a puzzle that must be solved, a great exercise for anyone looking for a mental challenge! patreon.com/posts/75229053

Anyone know how to quickly unfollow 9,693 people? Asking for a friend.

When I first started twitter I had an app that auto followed tons of accounts… it makes my feed unusable. I’ll keep the few hundred friends/space related accounts I follow but otherwise want to ditch most of the rest. Any suggestions?

I spent 40 hours with a small telescope pointed at part of the sky to capture this: A supernova's shockwave travelling through space. It's over 6x wider than the full moon in the sky, just too faint to see without proper equipment. Zoom in and check out all the crazy details!

Going from 40 hours of Raw data with 6 different filters to a complete vibrant image is a science in itself, and something that can be tricky to wrap your head around. For that reason I offer my raw data as a patron perk, a great way to learn the hobby patreon.com/ajamesmccarthy

"Shockwaves and Supernovae" is available in print here: the image is super detailed and is a really cool piece of science to hang on your wall, a great gift for the space junky in your life. cosmicbackground.io/products…

I ordered the calendar a couple of days ago and right away we received the wallpaper bundle - we loved each and every photo. Amazing work! It was a gift for my husband and he’s beyond happy 😃

Some of my favorite images I've released since I began astrophotography. While our moon is still my muse, the sun, planets, and deep space are an endless source of inspiration. See if you can spot the international space station, it's in here twice!
