EquipmentAstro-Tech 8" F-8 Canon 350D Mod Orion Atlas EQ-G
DescriptionM-100 AND Meany Other Galaxy's 36 x 5 min 1600 ASA
EquipmentOrion f/4.7 10-inch Newtonian using an SBIG 20000XM imager guided using an Orion ST80 using an DSI Pro 2 imager on a Losmandy G11 mount.
DescriptionA image of M27 using Ha, OIII, L, R, G, and B filters. The color of M27 used Ha for red, OIII for the blue, and a combination of 20% Ha and 80% OIII for the green. The color of the stars used the LRGB image. Took 1x1 binned 900s exposures for the Ha and OIII filters, 1x1 binned 600s for the L, 2x2 binned 380s for the R and G, and 2x2 binned 480s for the B. Exposures captured using Nebulosity 2 and guiding with PHD. Image processing using AIP4WIN, DeepSkyStacker, Nebulosity 2, PixInsight LE, and PhotoShop.

EquipmentCamera: QSI-583ws, Filter: Astrodon 5nm Ha Telescope: Televue NP-101 refractor, Mount: Losmandy G11 Guidescope: Stellarvue SV80/9D on Robin Casady TGAD Auto-Guider Camera: Orion StarShoot with PHD software Processing software: MaximDL and Photoshop
DescriptionNorth America Nebula (NGC 7000) and Pelican Nebula (IC 5070). The image is a 3-tile mosaic taken on 3 consecutive nights. Each tile is a stack of 8x15-minutes exposures. They were taken within the city, and under a hazy sky that was awash with urban light pollution. Under such conditions the narrowband Ha filter is a “must have” item.

DescriptionThe Eagle Nebula is part of a diffuse emission nebula, or H II region, which is catalogued as IC 4703. This region of active current star formation is about 6,500 light-years distant. The tower of gas that can be seen coming off the nebula is approximately 57 trillion miles (97 trillion km) high. The brightest star in the nebula has an apparent magnitude of +8.24, easily visible with good binoculars.
