Jupiter_6_21_09.jpg
Jumpin' Jupiter!664 viewsJupiter is nearing its 2009 opposition - so I thought I'd go out and practice. Shot with the Celestron C9.25/CGE at f/25 (5875mm) with the NexImage/Televue Powermate (2.5x) from the backyard. I shot at 20 fps to get the most amount of images (1800). Stacked with Registax 2.0, Processed with Photoshop 7.0.1.

The two galaxies close in proximity below them are known as the "Eyes." The one that is very irregular in shape is NGG 4438 (also cataloged as Arp 120 in Arp's Catalog of Peculiar Galaxies) that as been suggested to be the result of the in-progress merger of two galaxies. 2.6 h (32 x 300 sec) total exposure; Takahashi E-180; Canon 20Da

NGC_1499_small.jpg
NGC 1499 California Nebula586 viewsThe California Nebula (NGC 1499) is an emission nebula located in the constellation Perseus. It is so named because it appears to resemble the outline of the state of California on long exposure photographs. It is almost 2.5° long on the sky and, because of its very low surface brightness, it is extremely difficult to observe visually. It lies at a distance of about 1,000 light years from Earth. This is a Ha, G, B exposure.
