Nebulae & Galaxies
LocationNew Smyrna Beach, FL
DateOctober 9, 2007
EquipmentImaging scope was Orion ED80 Canon Rebel XT - Hap Griffin Modified 40 x 300s Guided with PHD & EQMOD DSLR Focus V3, IRIS, PS CS3
DescriptionThe Triangulum Galaxy Messier 33 (M33, 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 by this more of average size for spiral galaxies in the universe.

DescriptionNGC 1961 is a spiral galaxy approximately 170m light years away which is being disturbed either by an intergalactic cloud of gas or by an interaction with a neighboring galaxy which is resulting in a massive burst of star formation.

DateDec 10th and 12th
EquipmentThis image is 6 hours of photons, each frame is 6 minutes at iso 800. Mount/guiding: Altas Mount connected to Astro IIDC via ShoeString GPUSB adapter for guiding. I'm using DMK 21AF04.AS camera with a through Meade SN-6". Optics: Orion 80ED, WO 0.8 FR, with Astronomik CLS Filter mounted to a Canon 350D Modified by Hap. DSL Control: Nebulosity for DSL control and capture.
DescriptionThe Horsehead Nebula, Barnard 33, is a dark pillar of dust and non-luminous gas that blocks the light glowing behind from the diffuse emission nebula IC 434. This region is but a small portion of a much larger cloud of gas and dust 1600 light years away in the constellation Orion this image includes the Flame Nebula (NGC 2024).
LocationValenii de munte, Romania
Date12/01/07 (MMddYY), 19:46-22:00 UT
EquipmentImage aquisition: Canon EOS 400D (unmodified) through Vixen ED refractor 55mm f/d=8 piggybacked on C8-NGT telescope. 10 exposures (5 min each) at 1600 ISO stacked and processed with IRIS and Photoshop. autoguiding using modified webcam and Guidedog.
DescriptionThe Great Andromeda Galaxy
LocationLos Alamitos, CA
EquipmentCelestron Nexstar 8 GPS, SX-AO @.2-.4 sec guider exposures, CS 10 nm HA filter, Baader 9.5 nm OIII filter with SX H9; IDAS LPR filter with H9C.
DescriptionHere's an interesting juxtaposition of what appear to be two toroid-shaped planetary nebulae with layers of concentric outer shells: The little dumbbell M76 on the left appears edge-on, while the ring nebula M57 on the right appears face-on. M76 was imaged in December using narrow band HA and OIII filters while M57 was imaged in August with a combination of HA and RGB filters.
EquipmentWidefield image taken with Stellarvue 66ED and William Optics .8 reducer. The camera was a Canon Digital Rebel XT. The mount was a Losmandy G11. Autoguided with a Meade DSI.
DescriptionOrion's belt consisting of the stars Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka. The horsehead and flame nebula accompany Alnitak and the faint Teardrop nebula is around Mintaka.

EquipmentDSI Pro II behind homebuilt 6" f1.8 astrograph & 10" LX200R @ f 3.3 H-alpha, green and blue filters used (no lums)
DescriptionIn this 4 frame mosaic I tried to highlight the faint H-alpha wisps that surround the M42,43 and NGC1977 nebulas. 20+ x 2min subs were stacked using a full apature H-alpha filter with the fast astrograph to capture these frail smokish threads and the larger 10" scope was used for inner detail. Each was scaled ,layered together and ballanced fro color in PS.
