M42 in Orion1537 viewsImaged with a 178mm f/9 Astro-Physics refractor and a Canon 20Da (ISO 800) on a Paramount. Total of 30 two-minute exposures aligned, collimated, and combined in Images Plus and processed in Adobe PhotoShop CS2. Exposures were keep short to preserve detail near the bright core of the nebula.
Comet Holmes1301 viewsEleven 30-sec exposures stacked of Comet Holmes taken with an Astro-Physics 178 f9 and a Canon 20Da DSLR (ISO 800)
M15 Globular Cluster in Pegasus1312 viewsMessier 15, a gobular cluster in Pegasus, which was originally discovered by Maraldi in 1746 and rediscovered by Messier in 1764, lies 30,600 light years away. Fourteen 120-second exposures aligned, calibrated, and combined in Images Plus; processed with Adobe Photoshop CS2; taken with a 178mm f/9 Astro-Physics refractor and a Canon 20Da DSLR camera (ISO 800).
Sculptor Galaxy1344 viewsThe Great Sculptor Galaxy (NGC 253), aka the Silver Coin, in the constellation Sculptor was discovered in 1783 by Caroline Herschel. The galaxy is at a distance of 9.8 million light years away from us. Research on NGC 253 indicates that it is a starburst galaxy, which means that it has recently hosted massive and rapid burts of star formation. The image is a total of 1 hr 50 min (22 X 300 seconds) exposure with a Takahashi E-180 astrograph and Canon 20Da DSLR camera.
Gibbous Moon1325 viewsA picture of our nearest neighbor, the Moon, taken on Oct 7, 2011 with an Astro-Physics 178 mm f/9 refractor with focal reducer @ f/7.1, 1262 mm focal length; Modified Canon 50D; AP 1200 mount; 26 x 1/125 sec lights (best of 31 images graded in Images Plus 4.25); 31 darks, 66 flats).
Messier 271238 viewsM 27 , aka the dumbbell nebula, in the constellation Vulpecula was discovered by Charles Messier in 1764. M27 is a large cloud of expanding gas, which is the remains of a star that expelled its outer atmosphere near the end of its lifetime. M27 is a bright object that can be seen in binoculars and is a favorite telescopic object in the Spring and early Fall. Total exposure of 1 hr 40 minutes (20 x 5 min lights;30 darks; 66 flats; AP 178 f/9 refractor; Modified Canon 50D; AP 1200 mount; guided exposures)
Messier 151114 viewsThe globular cluster Messier 15 is found in the constellation Pegasus. Globular clusters are large typically spherical clusters of stars gavitationally bond together. Current estimates suggest M15 contains at least 450,000 solar masses with a very dense center. Image taken with a 178 mm f/9 Astro-Physics refractor and a modified Canon 50D DSLR on an Astro-Physics 1200 mount (70 x 60 sec lights; 30 darks; 66 flats; Images Plus and Adobe Photoshop CS5 software).
Messier 82, a starburst galaxy1208 viewsMessier 82, a galaxy in the constellation Ursa Major, was discovered by Johann Elert Bode in 1780. Today we know M82 is a starburst galaxy where a large number of new stars are being born. Large amounts of in-falling gas are excited by the newly formed stars and are responsible for the red Ha emissions Total exposure was 11.4 hours (137 x 5 min lights) taken with a 130 mm f/8 Astro-Physics refractor and SBIG ST 2000xcm CCD camera on an Astro-Physics 1200 mount. Processed in Images Plus 4.5 and Adobe Photoshop CS5
Dust lanes around Messier 782170 viewsMessier 78 is a reflection nebula in the constellation Orion. As the name “reflection nebula” implies, M78 shines by the reflection of light from surrounding stars. Long photographic exposures show the dust lanes that are near the nebula. The red area in the lower right hand corner of the photograph is part of Barnard’s loop.... a large loop of excited hydrogen gas. Total combined exposure of 11.5 hours (138 x 5 min lights, 35 darks, 64 flats, 64 flat darks); Takahashi E-180ED astrograph; Canon 40D modified.
The Messier 78 region933 viewsMessier 78 is a reflection nebula in the constellation Orion. Associated with M 78 are various other reflection nebulae as well as large clouds of dust. The image was taken with a modified Canon 40D and Takahashi E 180 f/2.8 astrograph on a Paramount. Total exposure time was 11 hours 10 min (134 x 5 min lights, 35 darks, 64 flats); Image acquisition with MaxIm DL and calibration, registration, integration, and processing with PixInsight
Messier 78 in the constellation Orion1131 viewsMessier 78 is a reflection nebula that is a part of a larger complex of nebulae in the constellation Orion . Several other reflection nebulae are seen in the image along with large clouds of dust (dark molecular cloud Orion B). Image is a total of 6 hr 50 min exposure (41 x 10 min lights @ -20 degrees; 20 darks, 64 flats, 64 bias) taken with a SBIG ST2000xcm CCD camera and a TeleVue 140 f/5 refractor on an Astro-Physics 1200 mount. Image acquisition software MaxIm DL; grading, calibration, registration, integration, processing with PixInsight 1.8.2 with final adjustment in Adobe Photoshop CC.
Messier 78 and neighbors831 viewsMessier 78 is a diffuse reflection nebula located in the constellation of Orion. The starlight bounces off the dust particles in the nebula which create the bright reflection areas. The dark area that separates M78 from NGC 2067 consist of obscuring dust that blocks the light from background stars. The image consist of over 10 hours of data (128 x 5min exposures) taken with a Canon 60Da camera, TPO RC telescope on a Celestron CGEM mount. Stacked with nebulosity and processed with Photo Shop CS6.
