LocationStargazer private observatory near Linz, Austria
Equipment9" TMB Apo f/9 @ f/7 TeleVue recuder SXV M25C Mountegra single arm fork mount
Descriptionin those 2 nights odds were wuite uneven: in the first imaging night I encountered terrific transparency of 9/10, but bad seeing - 4/10 the other night was the other way around: transparency was pnly 5-6/10 but terrific seeing for my place of 6/10 I used my SXV M25C and imaged 3,5 hours exposure time. 4,8,12, minutes frames. AstroArt4 for preprocessing and guiding, PS CS2 for postprocessing. find more details here: http://stargazer.christelhager.info/sonic/index.html

EquipmentC-11 scope Older G-11 mount (totally rebuilt and tuned by me) with FS2 goto and ESCAP steppers TCF-s focuser Optec 0.5 reducer ST2000XM with 2020 imaging chip and 237 guide chip CFW8 with A-Don LRGB I series and 13nm Astronimik Ha All housed within my Black River Observatory near Port Huron, Michigan
DescriptionFINALLY a break in the horrible Michigan weather! I never waste a good night and the past two have been no exception. This is my rendition of NGC-3953. I grabbed the L channel last week and the RGB just the other night. 13x15min unbinned for the L channel, and about 7x10min binned 2x2 for the RGB. Comment more than welcome! ---Frank Rocketman Uroda

EquipmentMeade 8" Starfinder reflector telescope with a .5 focal reducer on a LXD55 Autostar Mount. Camera used is a Meade DSI pro. Total exposure is 1 hour.
DescriptionThis image of The Bubble Nebula known as NGC 7635 is located in the constellation of Cassiopeia. NGC 7635 is an excellent example of a planetary nebula and lies about 11,000 light years away. The bubble itself measures 6 light years across.
EquipmentMeade 12" SCT LX200 Classic Canon 350 D at prime focus
DescriptionThe Crab Nebula is the most famous and conspicuous remnant of a supernova, which was observed around the world in 1054 AD. In most astronomical handbooks this object is listed as 'bright', but an increase in light pollution has resulted in its becoming harder to see in a modest telescope! Once seen, however, it is not easily forgotten, resembling a gauzy handkerchief fluttering in a cosmic wind.
