Ryan's attempt at M31573 viewsThis was an image last month that Ryan took. I finally got around to uploading it.
The Ringed Planet573 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.
Polaris Star Trails571 viewsMy first attempt at this. I will upload a new one later. This is a 10min shot.
The Active Sun in Hydrogen Alpha570 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.
M17570 viewsThis is 2 - 5 min guided shots with a ST-2000XCM camera on Tak FS102 Mounted on a G11
Rosette Nebula561 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.
ST2000XCM-M17560 viewsThis is 2x10 minute images taken on 13Oct. Much more detail than the last time.
M33 -Triangulum Galaxy559 viewsThe Triangulum Galaxy (Messier 33 or NGC 598) is a spiral galaxy approximately 3 million light-years away. It is the third largest galaxy in the Local Group, a group of galaxies that also contains the Milky Way. M33 is about 60,000 light years across and contains 10-40 billion solar masses. Celestron 6" SCT, unguided on GC-5. Stock Canon Rebel XSi, 21 minutes (needs more time-but forgot to charge battery). Taken at Dog Canyon State Park on the 11/22/08 public star party.
St2000XCM Moon Shot556 viewsThis was just a quick 0.01 second shot of the moon. Who said the moon didn't have color
Cygnus Widefield552 viewsTaken with the stock 18-55mm lens at 18mm. Piggybacked on my Celestron Ultima 8.
The Bubble Nebula in Cassiopeia551 viewsThe bubble nebula, NGC 7635, is a large emission nebula in Cassiopeia. The “bubble” is the result of a stellar wind from a massive young star, which is thought to be 10 to 40 times the mass of our sun. The image exposure time was a total of 12 hours 5 minutes (145 x 5 minutes lights; 33 darks; and 64 flats) with an Astro-Physics 130 mm f/8 refractor and SBIG ST2000xcm ccd camera on an Astro-Physcs 1200 mount.
