DescriptionM104 is a nearly edge-on spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo. It is called the Sombrero Galaxy because of it's dark lane and unusual central bulge. This image is a little more than 2.5 hours total integration time. Due to M104's location (low in the SE to SSE), we had to start off with shorter exposures and increase as the night progressed. This image was acquired on April 3, 2009. The temperature was about 50° F.

EquipmentExplore Scientific 102 mm APO SXVF-H9 piggybacked on a LX200 10 inch
DescriptionThis is an image of M82 taken from my Observatory in Fife Lake Michigan. It has 2 hours of luminance in 8 minute sub frames and 1 hour of Ha. It also has 40 minutes of color info per channel. I added the Ha to the luminance and red channel. For the full size image please go here. http://astronomy.qteaser.com/images/M82LhaRhaGBES102.jpg

EquipmentTarget: NGC3372 Eta Carinae Nebula Camera: Canon 350d modified Baader 2” Skyglow filter Exposure Capture: DLSR Focus Scope: Orion 80 ED Mount: EQ6 Pro Exposure Setting: Prime focus, ISO800 ICNR off Daylight WB Exposures: 10 x 330s total 55m taken 03/04/09 between 8:30pm and 9:30pm Seeing: Average, waxing gibbous moon 65% Guiding: Orion Starshoot Autoguider using PHD Focus: DSLR Focus Stacking: DSS 10darks, 5flats, no bias applied stacking time 15-20 minutes Processing: PS CS3,
DescriptionInfo: Situated in the Carina Carinae Nebula 10h 45m 59.52 bright diffuse nebula surrounding n Carinae easily visible with the naked eye. Discovered by Lacaille 1751-52. This giant diffuse nebula is one of the largest H II regions (composed of ionized hydrogen gas) in our Milky Way galaxy. The star forming nebula NGC 3372 has produced the very conspicuous peculiar star Eta Carinae, which is among the most massive and luminous stars in our Milky Way, and perhaps in the universe.
