M13 Croped1360 viewsFirst Astrophotograph taken.
M11317 viewsFirst light Shot from me ST-6 and new Mount. This is a single 4 minute shot at prime focus through my C8. Needs more time and better seeing.
M171110 viewsThis is 2 - 5 min guided shots with a ST-2000XCM camera on Tak FS102 Mounted on a G11
Supernova in Messier 1011374 viewsA supernova has appeared in the galaxy designed Messier 101. A supernova is essentially a star at the end of its lifetime that has exploded. This particular type of supernova is a type Ia, which is assumed to be due to the destruction of a white dwarf in a binary star system. The supernova can be seen in the image as the brightest "star" within the galaxy; located to the left of the center of the galaxy.
ST2000XCM-M171071 viewsThis is 2x10 minute images taken on 13Oct. Much more detail than the last time.
The Eagle Nebula1697 viewsThe open cluster Messier 16 and the associated nebulosity IC 4703 are found in the constellation Serpens Cauda. The popular name of this object is the Eagle Nebula, and contains the "Pillars of Creation" that was made famous in the image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. This image was a total of 3.5 hours exposure (21 x 10 min subframes) taken with a modified Canon 40D and a Takahashi Epsilon-180ED.
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).
M171348 viewsAn image of Messier 17, commonly call the Omega, Horseshoe, or Swan Nebula, in the constellation Sagittarius. There are over 600 stars within this gaseous nebula. The image was taken with a Canon 20Da DSLR at ISO 800 (26 x 5 min light exposures, 35 x 5 min Darks, and 64 lights) and a Takahashi E-180 astrograph. Processed and calibrated using Images Plus 3.80 and Adobe Photoshop CS5.
Messier 13-Globular Cluster in Hercules1158 viewsWe were showing a number of globular clusters at our star party events at Oliver Lee State Park. Here is an image of M (Messier) 13 taken with the 6" SCT and a Canon Rebel XSi (15 min). (retouched after I got a new monitor)
Galaxies in Leo1860 viewsMany bright and faint galaxies can be found in the Constellation Leo. The bright galaxy on the upper left is Messier 95; on the upper right is Messier 96; and in the lower right is Messier 105; next to M 105 is NGC 3389 and NGC 3371 (from top to bottom). Equipment: Takahashi E-180 f/2.8 astrograph, modified Canon 40D, Exposure 28 x 5 minute light frames, Images Plus and Adobe Photoshop CS5.
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).
M1927 viewsMessier 1, (M1, NGC 1952), The Crab Nebula is the most famous and conspicuous known supernova remnant, the expanding cloud of gas created in the explosion of a star as supernova which was observed in the year 1054 AD. It shines as a nebula of magnitude 8.4 near the southern "horn" of Taurus, the Bull. The distance is 6,300 light years.
