Pelican Nebula1785 viewsA single guided one-hour exposure of the pelican nebula in Cygnus taken with a Takahashi Epsilon 180 f/2.8 using a Canon 20Da DSLR on a Astro-Physics 1200 mount
M42n=30EXP2minCombineFilesSigAvg.jpg
M42 in Orion1766 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.

The Cat's Paw Newbula1735 viewsNGC 6334, AKA the Cat's Paw Nebula, is found in the constellation Scorpius. NGC 6334 is a complex emission nebula along with dark dust lanes. Image is a total of 3 hours 25 minutes exposure (41 x 5 min) taken with a modified Canon 40D and a Takahashi Epsilon 180 f/2.8 astrograph. Image was processed using Images Plus 3.82B and Adobe Photoshop CS5 software.

IC_417_and_NGC_1931.jpg
The Spider and the Fly1719 viewsIC 417, aka the spider, located in the constellation Auriga is the bright emission nebula in the center of the image. The smaller emission and reflection nebula NGC 1931, aka the fly, is located to the right. In the upper left-hand corner is the emission nebula IC 410. Exposure was a total of 3 hr 10 min (38 X 5 min) with a Takahashi E-180 and modified Canon 40D @ ISO 800 (30 darks, 60 flats). Image aquisition with Images Plus 4.0; Calibration, alignment, and stacking in Images Plus 3.82b.
Ha_image_of_Messier_8_in_false_color.jpg
Hydrogen alpha image of Messier 81690 viewsM8, an emission nebula, is found in the constellation Sagittarius. A significant portion of it's composition is hydrogen, which emitts light due to the excitation of the hydrogen atoms from radiation coming from the embedded stars in the nebula. A particular wavelenght of this emission, Ha, was imaged using a narrowband filter and assigned a red color (TeleVue 85 refractor; 0.8 reducer/fattener; SBIG ST-2000 CCD; 25 x 5 min lights; 30 darks; 41 flats).

Messier 101 in Ursa Major1646 viewsMessier 101, aka the Pinwheel Galaxy, is a spiral galaxy in the constellation Ursa Major. In the spiral arms of the galaxy are many blue areas of active star formation as well as red HII regions. The image is a total combined exposure of 5 hours 25 minutes (65 x 5 min lights, 30 darks, 64 flats) with an SBIG ST2000XCM camera and an Astro-Physics 130mm f/8 refractor.
