DescriptionCollection of supernova explosion remnants. I continue to find amazing how from a similar hydrogen bubble you can get such a variety of different nebulas. The size in the picture are scaled to their real dimensions.

EquipmentTelescope/Mount: Celestron Compustar C14 with 0.75x Astrophysics focal reducer (f/8.3). Camera: SBIG STL11000M with Baader Planetarium L,R,G,B filters.
DescriptionM101 imaged in May of 2012 shows that the supernova PTF11kly is still glowing. The supernova can be seen along the 5 o'clock radial from the core, about 3/4 the distance from the core to galaxy's edge, It appears distinctly blue in color. The supernova was a Type Ia discovered on 2011-08-24 by the Palomar Transient Factory. It peaked at magnitude 9.9 in mid September, 2011. Imaging it last summer and fall was not possible because my view of it from my observatory dome was blocked. Reports indicated it dropped to magnitude 13 by November. I was delighted to see it still glowing when the Oregon weather cleared in May with the galaxy high in the sky for imaging.

DescriptionNGC6914 is a tangle of nebulae and stars in the heart of Cygnus. A brilliant blanket of red emission nebulae encompasses an intricate web of reflection nebulae of varying shades of blue, with the field shot through by stars of many vivid colours. Towards the middle of the frame the blue nebula fades gradually in colour and intensity, giving way to very dark clouds in an apparent transition that seems almost unique in the sky!
