EquipmentTEC 140 @f5.6 and FLI ML8300 camera on Takahashi NJP mount.
DescriptionAn eerie blue glow and ominous columns of dark dust highlight M78 and other bright reflection nebula in the constellation of Orion. The dark filamentary dust not only absorbs light, but also reflects the light of several bright blue stars that formed recently in the nebula. The same type of scattering that colors the daytime sky further enhances the blue color.

LocationRancho Hidalgo, NM
DateJanuary 19-20, 2012
EquipmentTelescope: TEC-140 (F7) Camera: SBIG ST-8300M Mount: AP900 GTO Ha: 18x20 minutes SII: 25x20 minutes OIII: 21x20 minutes
DescriptionThis is an image of NGC 2264, The Cone Nebula and Christmas Tree Cluster taken with narrowband filters (Ha, SII, OIII) and processed using the Hubble Palette. The Cone Nebula is in the Constellation of Monoceros and is about 2600 light years away.
LocationRancho Hidalgo, New Mexico
EquipmentTakahashi TOA-130F with flattener on an Astro-Physics 1200GTO mount. SBIG STL-6303 camera with STL-FW8 filter wheel and Astrodon LRGB filters. Self-guided using the STL-6303's built-in guide chip, positioned via an Astrodon Takometer camera rotator.
DescriptionThis is the Horsehead nebula, shot in a dark sky site using H-alpha data in addition to standard LRGB
LocationHoya Redonda, Valencia, Spain
DateJanuary 21, 2012 @ 19:40 TU
EquipmentCanon EOS-350D, Reflector GSO 203/800 f/4.0, (10x15 + 10x60 + 10x120 + 7x240 sec.) at 800 ISO.
DescriptionThe Great Orion Nebula, one of the most photographed astronomical object, is a diffuse nebula located at South of Orion's Belt that can be observed at naked eye on winter nocturnal sky. Placed to 1,270 light years from Earth and with 24 light years wide, is a huge cloud of interestellar gas and dust where are forming thousand of new stars.
LocationChino Valley, AZ
EquipmentRCOS 12.5" Ritchey-Chrétien Scope Paramont ME mount SBIG STL-11000m camera Astrodon Gen II filters.
DescriptionNorth is to the top. The Perseus galaxy cluster (Abell 426) is about 250 million light-years from our galaxy and contains more that 500 catalogued galaxies. The brightest member is NGC 1275, near the left edge of the image, at magnitude 11.6. NGC 1275 is a strong source of radio waves and x-rays. Abell 426 is the dominant member of the Perseus-Pisces supercluster. The super cluster extends to 300 million light-years and covers 40 degrees of the winter sky. Exposure Details Lum 465 min. (31 x 15 min.) RGB 765 min. (17 x 15 min. each)

EquipmentCanon 400mm F5.6L lens operating at F5.6; Modified Canon60D camera; AstroPhysics 900GTO mount
DescriptionM42 - careful processing in ImagesPlus, Bibble Lite, and PhotoImpact allowed me to preserve details nearly to the center of the nebula - in this highly cropped and reduced version (50% by area, 33% by resolution). A sum of 6 frames, 3 minutes each, ISO800, and autoguided with an Orion guider. Hap Griffin modified camera using an Astrodon filter.
DateJanuary 16, 2012 early morning
EquipmentQSI 532ws M1 with Nikon 50mm f/1.4D Lens (stopped to f/4) piggybacked on Meade 10" LX200GPS with DSI Pro guiding. Astronomik 13nm Ha filter used. Camera control via MaxIm. Processing via MaxIm and CCDS2. Post processing via PS CS4.
DescriptionWidefield of Orion's Belt. Near center are the Flame and Horsehead Nebulae. Right of center is the Orion Nebula. Arcing across the bottom is Barnard's Loop. 10 x 5 minute subexposures through a Ha filter from my suburban backyard.
EquipmentCamera: Modified canon EOS 350D Lens: canon EF-S 17-85mm @f/5.6 Startracker mount
