Nebulae & Galaxies
EquipmentTELESCOPE: TAKAHASHI TOA 130 APO + Reducer @ f/5,8 (754 mm) MOUNT: TAKAHASHI EM400 TEMMA II CAMERA: CCD QHY9 (-25º) GUIDE: STV CAMERA / EZ GUIDER 60mm. TOTAL EXPOSURE: 13,5h (Ha=5x30min, SII=11x30min, OIII=11x30min) FILTERS: Ha 6 nm Astronomik, SII y OIII Baader
DescriptionThis nebula is part of a complex area that houses gas emission, absorption, and dark nebulae. In the picture you can see the most famous (the elephant's trunk), a large dark column within the areas of hydrogen IC 1396.

DescriptionOrion Nebula The Orion Nebula (also known as Messier 42, M42, or NGC 1976) is a diffuse nebula situated south[b] of Orion's Belt. It is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky. M42 is located at a distance of 1,344 ± 20 light years and is the closest region of massive star formation to Earth. The M42 nebula is estimated to be 24 light years across. Older texts frequently referred to the Orion Nebula as the Great Nebula in Orion or the Great Orion Nebula.

DescriptionIt's a composite of 2 nights of imaging in Ha and one night under dark skies taken with my modified Canon 40d through my FSQ 106ED mounted on an EQ6-pro. I was unable to identify the object i the centre of the field. Does someone know if it has been catalogued ?

DescriptionM33 - The Triangulum Galaxy. L: 13x10min (1x1), RGB: 6x5min each (2x2), Imager Temp -20C, Full Frame. Messier 33 (NGC 598) is another prominent member of the Local Group of galaxies. This galaxy is small compared to its big apparent neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy M31, and to our Milky Way galaxy, but more of an average size for spiral galaxies in the universe. M33 may be a remote but gravitationally bound companion of the Andromeda galaxy M31. Several knots in the spiral arms of M33 have been assigned their own NGC catalog numbers - the largest of which in this image is in the lower mid-left and is NGC 604. This is one of the largest H II regions known anywhere: it has a diameter of nearly 1500 light-years, and a spectrum similar to the Orion nebula M42. Over 200 young hot massive stars (of 15 to 60 solar masses) have recently formed here.
