Gravitational Lensing

I was watching this doco on "The largest Black holes in the universe" on you tube in 480p resolution.
I noticed a very large distortion within the grainy low res image at 16:12 / 24:58 mins . It appears to be some kind of lensing effect or photo manipulation... Can you help me find out the answer ? Picture is at 16:12 / 24:58mins

Detecting changes in a nebula


With the fabulous images that are now able to be produced, I was wondering if it would be possible to detect subtle changes in clouds of nebula gas and dust over long periods of time.

SLR / Telescope connections

I am wanting to connect my Canon DSLR EOS700D to my 10" Dobsonian SkyWatcher go-to telescope but it just occurred to me that if I do the camera sensor will be exposed to the elements. Is there anything I can buy to fit to the camera or T ring that will protect my sensor from contamination?

Horizon - School Near Space Programme

I hope that I can kindle a little interest on this forum for a field of personal and professional interest. I would also be happy to answer questions and contribute to the community here.
I run a high school project called 'Horizon'. Each year I recruit a team of pupils who build and launch autonomous, high altitude probes into the Stratosphere (carried by Helium or Hydrogen filled weather balloons).

We've got some amazing footage on ...
