Trifid Nebula (M20) in Living Color!691 viewsHere is another summertime favorite, the Trifid Nebula (Messier 20) done with a Takahashi Epsilon 180 (f2.8) with SBIG 2000 single shot color camera using the Tzec Maun scopes in Australia. This is a single 10-minute exposure.
Orion nebula complex691 viewsNot the greatest picture - but a test of the new Borg 71FL astrograph with the modded Canon XS DSLR. This is a 25 minute exposure at ISO 1600. Come out this winter to see the Orion nebula for yourself at Oliver Lee State Park.

The Red Rose678 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.
Friday Night at the Orion670 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!
