EquipmentCelestron NS11XLT in Hyperstar3 configuration at F/2, QHY10 CCD, Baader UHC-S and 35-nm. H-Alpha filters.
DescriptionFlaming Star (aka IC405 and Caldwell 31) is a region surrounding a blue star AE Aurigae. It is a reflection/emission nebula and is quite bright in H-Alpha part of the spectrum. Total exposure time - 5 hours (2- RGB and 3- H-Alpha).

EquipmentNextstar 11 GPS with SBIG 8300 M. Guidescope was a Maksutov 90 mm, the guide camera was an Imaging source DBK21AF04
DescriptionM16, thanks to Hubble, is one of the most famous objects in the sky. However this is a challenge for all amateurs, because people have in their mind the Hubble pictures. My picture was taken using R,G,B, Halfa filters.
EquipmentWO "megrez 88", Canon 400, EQ6.
DescriptionI captured this picture 30 miles far of town's light contamination. The total exposure is about 30m in six frames and three short shots for the "Trapecium" area. At 800 ISO with a non modificated reflex camera and "Smart Guider" system. Prime focus, f/5,6, no filter, no darks, no flats,no bias. DSS and Gimp procesed.

DescriptionFrom wikipedia: IC 2118 (also known as Witch Head Nebula due to its shape), is an extremely faint reflection nebula believed to be an ancient supernova remnant or gas cloud illuminated by nearby supergiant star Rigel in Orion. It lies in the Eridanus constellation, about 900 light-years from Earth. The nature of the dust particles, reflecting blue light better than red, is a factor in giving the Witch Head its blue color. Radio observations show substantial carbon monoxide emission throughout parts of IC 2118 an indicator of the presence of molecular clouds and star formation in the nebula. In fact candidates for pre-main sequence stars and some classic T-Tauri stars have been found deep within the nebula.

DescriptionNGC 2264 ( Christmas-Tree Cluster ) Cone Nebula, Fox-Fur Nebula. In Monoceros Imaged on Dec 25-26, Christmas day 2011 from San Diego County, Anza Borrego Desert. I thought it fitting that since it was Christmas day, I’d image the Christmas Tree Cluster. I imaged this North left but put it in this orientation as I like that you can see the Fox Face easer.

EquipmentTelescope: TEC-140 (F7) Camera: SBIG ST-8300M Mount: AP900 GTO Luminance: 22x10 minutes (binned 1x1) Red: 12x10 minutes (binned 2x2) Green: 12x10 minutes (binned 2x2) Blue: 12x10 minutes (binned 1x1)
DescriptionThis is an image of IC 410, also known as the Tadpole Nebula. It is about 12,000 light-years away in the northern constellation Auriga. It spans more than 100 light years and is formed from the radiation from the open star cluster NGC 1893.
