Messier 13-Globular Cluster in Hercules746 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)
Markarian_s_Chain.jpg
Markarian's Chain744 viewsMarkarian's Chain is found in the constellations Coma Berenices and Virgo. The two brightest members are Messier 84 and 86 in the upper right hand portion of the photo. The two galaxies close in proximity below them are known as the "Eyes." The one that is very irregular in shape is NGG 4438 (also cataloged as Arp 120 in Arp's Catalog of Peculiar Galaxies) that as been suggested to be the result of the in-progress merger of two galaxies. 2.6 h (32 x 300 sec) total exposure; Takahashi E-180; Canon 20Da

Messier 27 through Ha, OIII, and SII filters732 viewsMessier 27 is a nebula found in the constellation Vulpecula, often shown in the summer and early fall at our Oliver Lee star parties. This image is through narrowband filters, where Hydrogen alpha is mapped to green (2 hr 25 min combined exposure); Oxygen, OIII, is mapped to blue (3 hr 15 min combined exposure), and Sulfur, SII, is mapped to red (5 hr 40 min combined exposure); taken with a Takahashi FSQ106ED and SBIG ST2000xm camera with Baader filters.

Rosette_Nebula.jpg
Rosette Nebula730 viewsThe Rosette Nebula (NGC 2237-8, 46) and the open cluster NGC 2244 in the center of the nebula is found in the constellation Monoceros. The nebula is one of the largest in the sky. The nebula was photographed with a Takahashi E-180 astrograph and Canon 20Da (ISO 800); Exposure was a total of 2.5 hours (30 x 300 seconds), calibrated, aligned, and stacked in Images Plus and processed in Photoshop CS4.

M57724 viewsMessier 57 the Ring Nebula appears in the northern constellation of Lyra is a prominent example of a planetary nebula. This is a shell of ionized gas expelled into the surrounding interstellar medium by a red giant star, which was passing through the last stage in its evolution before becoming a white dwarf. The distance is 2300 light years.

ST2000XCM-M31721 viewsThis is a single 10 minute image. I was working on my guide setup and tested it out on this object.
Saturn_2013_05_25_C9_25_21AU618_f25.jpg
The Ringed Planet721 viewsSaturn is the 6th planet from the Sun at a distance of about 900 million miles. The rings are composed primarily of water ice with particles the size of snowflakes up to house-sized boulders. The rings extend almost 50,000 miles above the planet and average about 60 feet thick (paper thin indeed). To learn more about Saturn, go to our "PLANETS" page. Celestron C9.25 at f25, Imaging Source 21AU618 color camera.
2011_12_27_AR1384_prom_PST.jpg
The Active Sun in Hydrogen Alpha714 viewsThis image was taken through a 40mm Coronado PST of the Sun on 12/27/2011 at 1925UT. The photograph is centered on the hydrogen alpha emission line at 656.28 nanometers (nm) and shows the chromosphere. Active Region 1384 is the dark region near the center of the photograph. A very large prominence is seen erupting along the rim of the Sun on the right.
