EquipmentSkywatcher Heq5pro mount, Takahashi FSQ-85, QHY2pro camera, QHY5 guider, Baader filters Ha 7nm SII 8.5nm OIII 8.5nm, Truetech 8pos. filterwheel.
DescriptionA "Hubble" palette narrowband image of the beautiful Pelican Nebula. It's amazing how much detail one can capture even in a very light polluted city like my town, Copenhagen, Denmark.
DateOctober 3 at 11:00PM
EquipmentThis image was taken with a Celestron ASGT-C8 ,guided with a William Optics Z66SD mounted piggyback. Camera used was a Meade DSI Pro II with a Meade 3.3 focal reducer. Guide camera is a Meade DSI-C using PHD software.
DescriptionNGC 1055 is an edge-on spiral galaxy located in the constellation Cetus. It is nearby the more popular galaxy Messier 77. It has a thick dust lane that obscures most of the core.

DescriptionNGC6992, the brightest portion of The Veil Nebula, is the remnant of a supernova that occurred 10-15,000 years ago. Its amazing filamentary structure may be due to compression of expanding shells of gas as they meet the resistance of the interstellar medium. The fact that the nebula is sweeping up interstellar dust as it expands is evidenced by the visibility of more faint stars on the lower right side of the nebula than on the upper left side. Exposures were 30 second unguided sub-frames calibrated with dark frames and flat fields. Processed with MaxDSLR and Photoshop CS2
EquipmentDSI Pro III on ED80. Guided with DSI II on LX200R. Ten hours total exposure. Eight minute Ha subs and Four minute LRGB subs.
DescriptionThere is a lot going in in the "Pac Man Nebula" in Cassiopeia. There is an open cluster, an emission nebula, obscuring dust lanes and Bok Globules.

DescriptionNorth America and Pelican Nebulae Complex In Cygnus 31x600sec at iso 1600 30 Darks/Flats/Bias Taken during a waxing gibbous moon. Over 5 hours of Hydrogen Alpha data on the huge NGC 7000/IC 5070 Nebula complex in Northern Cygnus. This area is a vast collection of dust and gas in the Orion arm of the Milky way at a distance of about 2000 light years, spanning 100 light years. This group of nebulae, both bright and dark, contains no less than 30 seperate objects

DescriptionA string of dark nebulae, a couple reflection nebulae, a very young star cluster, and a hint of hydrogen emission can be seen in this area that begins in the south of Perseus near the star Atik and proceeds southwest through Taurus and into northeastern Aries. The field seen here spans about 7 degrees of the sky. I would like to respectfully call this area "Barnard's Cascade" (even if no one else does). These include the first five members of Barnard's catalogue of dark nebulae (B1-B5) and five of his later entries (B202-B206).

DescriptionNGC 7479 in Pegasus 50x180sec at iso 1600 30 Darks/Flats/Bias NGC 7479 (Caldwell 44) is a barred spiral galaxy about 105 million light-years away and roughly 120,000 ly across (20% larger than our Milky Way). NGC 7479 is also recognized as a Seyfert galaxy undergoing starburst activity in the nucleus and the outer arms. Studies of this galaxy indicate it recently underwent a minor merger and that it is unique in that the radio signal shows arms that are opening in an opposite direction to the optical arms.

EquipmentSTV 102ED with WO f/f stage II Canon 40D Losmandy G11 with Celestron 80mm short tube and DSI pro II for guiding with PHD
Description3 hours in total each exposure was 5 minutes ISO 1600 calibrated in Deepsky Stacker and processed in Photoshop CS2
EquipmentTelescope A&M 320 AST Ritchey-Chretien, SBIG STL 11000M, Paramount ME.
DescriptionThis is center of new discovered "Clock glass" nebula in Cygnus. It is 13 exposures in H-alpha stacked together in MaximDL. One exposure is 3600 seconds. This nebula was discovered a few weeks ago by. Is very near to open cluster IC 4996 and Crescent Nebula. Unfortunately is extremely faint and visible only on very long exposures.
