LocationJerrara Dam NSW Australia
EquipmentSbig ST-8300M and Williams Optics Megrez 120 at f7.5 Mount was NEQ6 Goto Mount
DescriptionThis image shows the Eagle Nebula and the pillars of Creation within. This area contains the birth of new stars that can be seen bursting forth from the dense clouds of nebula.
Date9/6 & 9/7/10
EquipmentTV 101 @ f/4.3, G-11, ST-8300 Baader Ha & OIII filters
DescriptionNorth American Nebula in Cygnus.
LocationPommier Oservatory, Portland, OR, USA
Date2011-07-02 07:57UT start of exposures
EquipmentTelescope/mount: Celestron Compustar C14 with 0.75x focal reducer (f/8). Camera: SBIG STL 11000M with Baader Planetarium filters. Exposures: LRGB=102:84:84:84=5hours:54minutes total exposure. Self-guided.
DescriptionM27 is a planetary nebula that lies about 1200 light-years from Earth and has a diameter of about 2.4 light-years. It's expansion rate indicates that the red giant that spawned it erupted between 3000 and 4000 years ago. The white dwarf remanant of the red giant is the small blue star at the center of the nebula. This image shows some of the subtle detail inside the nebula.
LocationIesa GR), Tuscany - Italy
EquipmentMount Vixen GP, modified EOS 40D on William Optics 80/555 TMB with reducer/flattenerW.O. tyoe III, 9x6 min shots. Calibration with 13 dark and 11 flat, elaboration with MaxIm DL and Photoshop; crop of the central frame, around the object
Descriptionthe northern Veil Nebula, NGC 6992, a supernova remnant in the Cygnus.
LocationCherry Springs Park, PA
EquipmentCelestron NS11/Hyperstar3, QHY10 with Baader UHC-S/L-Booster Filter, guided on Celestron 70mm with DSI.
DescriptionThis is one of the most beautiful regions of the Milky Way. Visible in the binoculars and small telescopes both these objects were cataloged by Messier. Summer's showcase is nevertheless always quite low in our 40-some-degree latitudes. I was fortunate enough to be in rural Pennsylvania to take this shot. Exposure time - 75 min.

EquipmentTEC 140 @f7, FLI ML8300 camera with Baader filters, Takahashi NJP mount.
DescriptionElephant's Trunk Nebula in IC1396. Done in Hubble palette with narrowband filters to highlight emissions of Hydrogen, ionized Sulphur and ionized Oxygen. Ha binned 1x1 12x20m, SII binned 2x2 10x30m, OIII binned 2x2 10x 30m. Total of 14 hours of exposure. Taken by Lynn Hilborn WhistleStop Obs,Grafton, Ontario in July 2011. TEC 140 @f7 and FLI ML 8300 camera with Baader filters, Tak NJP mount.

DescriptionThe Eastern Veil is the brightest component of the Veil Complex and contains several sections. Although relatively faint, the Veil Complex can be resolved at a dark site with a large aperture telescope enhanced with an OIII filter. The HaRGB image is 4 hours of exposure using narrowband filters in light polluted skies. The Hubble palette which maps SII to Red, Ha to Green, and OIII to blue was used to produce the vivid colors.
