Sh2-275_2012_11_12_100ED_XS_iso800_60min.jpg
The Red Rose633 viewsSh2-275 is also known as the Rosette nebula and is a star forming region in the winter sky. Ionized hydrogen gas gives it a red color. The Rosette is about four times the size of the full Moon and is approximately 5200 light years away and about 130 light years in diameter. Open cluster NGC 2244 is located near the center of the nebula. Taken with an Orion 100ED f/9 telescope and modified Canon 1000D camera, 60 min exposure.

Lunar Eclipse620 viewsImage of the Lunar eclipse on Dec 21, 2010 at 1:17 AM from Mayhill, NM. Although the Moon is in the Earth's full shadow, or umbra, the moon appears to be have a copper-colored glow. This coloration is due to light bent (refraction) or scattered by the Earth's atmosphere onto the Moon. Image is a 6-second exposure with a Canon 40D at ISO 200 through a 130 mm f/9 Astro-Physics refractor on a Paramount.

Friday Night at the Orion612 viewsHere's another shot of the Orion nebula using the 6" SCT at f6.3 with an unmodded Canon Rebel XSi (15min total) done on 3/5/10. The nebula is seen as the middle "star" in the sword of Orion. The Orion Nebula is one of the most scrutinized and photographed objects in the night sky, and is among the most intensely studied celestial features. It is located at a distance of 1,344 ± 20 light years. This is an example of a stellar nursery where over 700 new stars are being formed. Cool stuff!

IC 410 and the Tadpoles610 viewsIC 410 in the constellation Auriga is a nebula associated with the open cluster NGC 1893. On close examination, the two "tadpoles" can be found "swimming in the gaseous nebula." IC 410 imaged with a Canon 20Da DSLR and Takahashi Epsilon 180 f/2.8 astrograph on a Paramount.

Messier 8, 20, and 21610 viewsThe Messier objects M8 (large nebula on right), M20 (blue and red nebula upper left) and M21 (open cluster below and to the left of M20) are favorite summer objects in the constellation Sagittarius. The Messier objects are found in a dense star field of our own Milky Way galaxy. Image taken with a modified Canon 40D and Takahashi E-180ed astrograph on a Paramount (50 x 5 min lights; 30 darks, 64 flats).
