NGC 6820 and 6823672 viewsNGC 6823 is an open cluster in Vulpecula, whose center contains 9th magnitude stars along with fainter members that is immersed in the faint emission nebula NGC 6820. Photographed with a Takahashi Epsilon 180 f/2.8 and Canon 20Da DSLR on a Paramount (Ten 5-minute exposures at ISO 800; calibrated, aligned, combined and processed in Images Plus V 3.80 (DDP stretch) followed by Adobe Photoshop CS4).

M33.jpg
M33 -Triangulum Galaxy662 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.
The_Trifid_Nebula_M20.jpg
The Trifid Nebula Messier 20662 viewsMessier 20, aka the Trifid Nebula, is both an emission nebula (H-II region imaged in red) and reflection nebula (blue coloration), which is found in the constellation Sagittarius. M 20 is a young star forming region. Image was taken with a TeleVue 140 f/5 refractor and a SBIG ST2000xcm camera (@ -15 degrees) on an Astro-Physics 1200 mount. Image is a total of 4 hr 20 min exposure (26 x 10 min lights, 64 flats, 64 bias, 15 darks) that was calibrated, aligned, integrated (PixInsight nomenclature for combined), and processed in PixInsight 1.8 with final levels/curves in Photoshop CS6. Optec Alnitak panel used for flats.

The_Bubble_SH2_162_NGC_7635_in_Cassiopeia.jpg
The Bubble Nebula in Cassiopeia657 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.
