IC_410_and_the_Tadpoles_in_the_Constellation_Auriga_sRGB.jpg
Emission nebula IC 410 and the Tadpoles in HaRGB254 viewsThe emission nebula IC 410 and the embedded open star cluster NGC 1893 are found in the constellation Auriga. The emission of IC 410, which is about 12,000 light-years away, is powered by the young hot stars in NGC 1893. The gas streamers just to the right and above center, often called the “Tadpoles”, are moving away from the center of the nebula. Picture is a HaRGB image taken with a Takahashi CCA-250 f/5 astrograph and a QSI683wsg camera (SBIG ST-i guider) on a Paramount ME. The Ha channel (used as Luminance) was blended with the RGB synthetic luminance (80:20, respectively) to give a more natural star color (Pixel Math). The image is a total of 11 hours exposure (24 x 20 min Ha, 3 x 20 min each R,G, and B, all binned 1x1 @ -20 degrees C, dithered;), acquired with MaxIm DL 6.07, and processed with PixInsight 1.8.3.1123 Ripley (x64). Ha filter (5nm bandwidth), R, G, and B were 31 mm Astrodon Gen2 filters.
NGC_2264.jpg
NGC 2264458 viewsNGC 2264, consist of two deep sky objects, the Cone Nebula and the Christmas Tree Cluster. Both located in the constellation of Monoceros. The star cluster is call the Christmas Tree while the Cone Nebula gets its name from the cone shape visible in photos. The cone nebula is a dark absorption nebula consisting of cold molecular hydrogen and dust in front of an emission nebula. The photo consist of 3.5 hours of exposure using Canon 60Da, Celestron C8, and a CGEM mount. Taken Christmas day 2013.

Celestron 6" SCT, unguided on GC-5. Stock Canon Rebel XSi, 21 minutes (needs more time-but forgot to charge battery). Taken at Dog Canyon State Park on the 11/22/08 public star party.
IC_4604_and_IC_4603__The_Rho_Ophiuchi_Nebulae.jpg
The Rho Ophiuchi Nebulae IC 4604 and IC 4603558 viewsOn the border of Scorpius and Ophiuchus by Antares lies a complex region of dust, molecular clouds, and reflection nebula. In the center of this image is the triple star Rho Ophiuchi, which is surrounded by the blue reflection nebula IC 4604. Throughout the image large dust clouds are seen. To the right of IC 4604 is the smaller reflection nebula IC 4603. Image was acquired using a Takahashi Epsilon 180 f/2.8 astrograph and a modified Canon 40D DSLR camera on a Paramount. Images Plus 5.0 was used for calibration and stacking of the sub images. PixInsight 1.8 Ripley was used to process the image. Image was a total of 2 hours 40 minutes exposure (16 x 10 min lights, 13 darks, 64 flats, 64 flat darks).

An Open Cluster and Nebula in the constellation Auriga92 viewsNGC 1931 is a relatively young open cluster surrounded by emission and reflection nebulosity (Sharpless 2-237) in the constellation Auriga. Faint red hydrogen emission can be see in the region surrounding the compact cluster/nebulosity. Sharpless 2-237 shows both red hydrogen emission and blue reflection nebulosity. Image was a total of 15 hours of exposure through a Takahashi CCA250 f/5 astrograph with a QSI683wsg camera @ -20 degrees C.
