Something wrong with the Trifid nebula link. The others work. Nice photos!

Let me quickly try an experiment:

There ya go! One has to add a ".jpg" behind the link, and then put the whole thing inside img tags. As you can see, it creates a new problem: your originals are HUGE, which makes for awkward viewing.

Or, you can add a “width=X” (or “height=X” attribute, or both) to the “img” BB code tag (“X” is the width/height in pixels) so that the image(s) fit(s) nicely on the page.  The applicable BB code is:
Code:
[img width=600]https://i.imgur.com/3oT0mqf.jpg[/img]

[img width=600]https://i.imgur.com/HI2LSnI.jpg[/img]

[img width=600]https://i.imgur.com/dwDrjWo.jpg[/img]

The above code renders like this:






@Tweefo:  Nice pictures, indeed!  You might want to copy the above example code into a text file on your desktop for easy future reference/reverence.

Super pics Tweefo!  Cool, especially your capture of Centaurus A. The dust lane looks to my eyes quite a bit like a femur, complete with ball joint. Incidentally, I offer five virtual jellybeans to the reader who can spot why the name "femur galaxy" may well be more apt than the current "hamburger galaxy".

Sorry to hijack. But here's footage of a 40-hour long plasma tornado on the surface of the sun:

@Tweefo: Note the "img" instead of "url", and ".jpg" added to the link.

My first try at the Eagle Nebula. It was very cold out there and I just tried it to see what would come out, so this is a stack of only 7 photos. (normally it's 50 to 200 that one stack.) I also have a problem with a cable so the guiding did not work well.

Seems that the process to post a picture here, through imgur, introduce a bit more noise. Same with the Facebook-posts pics they are not the same as the originals. I must also say again that these last two pics were not the best ever.

It’s probable that Imgur resamples all uploaded images to lower-quality JPEGs so as to reduce storage space requirements.  The JPEG format is lossy by default, but lossless JPEGs are possible.  One way to test this would be to compare the file size of the original with that of the version hosted by Imgur.  Assuming you’re using MS Internet Explorer, you can download a copy of the Imgur image by right-clicking on it and selecting “Save picture as…” from the popup menu.
