Orion nebula complex1266 viewsNot the greatest picture - but a test of the new Borg 71FL astrograph with the modded Canon XS DSLR. This is a 25 minute exposure at ISO 1600. Come out this winter to see the Orion nebula for yourself at Oliver Lee State Park.
M42 in Orion1567 viewsImaged with a 178mm f/9 Astro-Physics refractor and a Canon 20Da (ISO 800) on a Paramount. Total of 30 two-minute exposures aligned, collimated, and combined in Images Plus and processed in Adobe PhotoShop CS2. Exposures were keep short to preserve detail near the bright core of the nebula.
Friday Night at the Orion1296 viewsHere's another shot of the Orion nebula using the 6" SCT at f6.3 with an unmodded Canon Rebel XSi (15min total) done on 3/5/10. The nebula is seen as the middle "star" in the sword of Orion. The Orion Nebula is one of the most scrutinized and photographed objects in the night sky, and is among the most intensely studied celestial features. It is located at a distance of 1,344 ± 20 light years. This is an example of a stellar nursery where over 700 new stars are being formed. Cool stuff!
Orion Nebula919 viewsWide-field photo of the Orion Nebula (M42 and M43) along with the Running Man (NGC-1977) taken with a Takahashi E-180 astrograph and a Canon 20Da DSLR camera. The total exposure was 25 minutes (5 X 300 seconds); calibrated, aligned, and stacked in Images Plus and processed in Photoshop CS4.
The Great Nebula in Orion1894 viewsMessier 42 in the constellation Orion is a star forming region in our galaxy, the Milky Way. It is a difficult object to photograph because of it's large variation in brightness. The attached is an image of M42 that is a combination of multiple stacked 10 second, 30 second, 60 second, 150 second, and 300 second exposures using Photoshop's High Dynamic Range tool ( Canon 20Da DSLR and an Astro-Physics 130mm f/8 refractor).
Lynds Dark Nebula 6732366 viewsLynds Dark Nebula 673 is found in the constellation Aquila. Unlike bright emission or reflection nebula, dark nebulae are essentially a dense cloud of gas and dust particles that block the light of stars behind it from our view. In this case, the light of stars in our Milky Way galaxy is blocked from view. Stars that do shine through often appear red due to the scattering of light by the dust particles. Total exposure of the image is 3.5 hrs (42 x 5 min).
M421090 viewsMessier 42 (M42, NGC 1976) The Orion Nebula is the brightest star forming, and the brightest diffuse nebula in the sky. Shining with the brightness of a star of 4th magnitude, it is visible to the naked eye under moderately good conditions. The Orion Nebula is located at a distance of about 1,600 (or perhaps 1,500) light-years.
Sun Spot 14291345 viewsThis is an Ha image of sunspot 1429 on 3-11-12.
M20 (Trifid Nebula)1218 viewsM20 (Trifid Nebula) located in the constellation of Sagittarius. I could not get guiding to work so this photo is composed of 42 30sec exposures at ISO6400 using a Canon EOS 60a.
Lynd's Dark Nebula 6731075 viewsLynd’s Dark Nebula 673 is an extensive dust cloud that can be found in the constellation Aquila. Image was taken with a modified Canon 40D DSLR camera (ISO 800) and a Takahashi Epsilon 180 f/2.8 astrograph on a Paramount. Image is a total of 3 hours 30 min exposure (42 x 5 min lights; 20 darks; 64 flats).
Orion Nebula (M42)839 viewsThe Orion Nebula (M42) is a diffuse nebula located in constellation of Orion. It is one of the most popular objects in the night sky and is visible with the naked eye from a dark location. Near the center you will find the Trapezium (the small group of four stars) containing some of the youngest stars in the Milky Way. Can you find the wolf face near the Trapezium? This image consist of 20 x 30 sec, 10 x 60sec, 5 x 180sec, and 5 x 300 sec images taken with a QHY-10 CCD camera, TPO RC telescope, and Celestron CGEM mount. Images were stacked in Nebulosity and processed in Photoshop CS6 utilizing layer masks to maintain the detail around the Trapezium.
Open Clusters M 46, M47, and NGC 2423 in Puppis628 viewsThe open clusters Messier 46, Messier 47, and NGC 2423 are found in the constellation Puppis embedded in a rich field of Milky Way stars. The small planetary nebula NGC 2438 that appears to be in M 46 is actually not associated with the cluster. M 46 was discovered by Messier in 1771. Smyth describes it as a “A noble, but rather loose assemblage of stars” (Smyth and Chambers, A Cycle of Celestial Objects, 2nd Edition, 1881, Oxford) whereas Webb describes it as a “Beautiful circular cloud of small stars” (Webb, Celestial Objects for Common Telescopes, 4th Ed, 1881, Longmans, Green, and Co ). William Herschel observed the small planetary nebula NGC 2438 in 1786. M 47 was also discovered by Messier in 1771 but not intermediately attributed to Messier due to a mathematical mistake in his coordinates. The cluster was described by Smyth as “a very splendid field of of large and small stars” (under the entry 38 H VIII) and Webb as a “Grand broad group, visible to the naked eye”. This wide field picture was taken with a Takahashi FSQ106ED with focal reducer (f/3.6), Canon 60Da DSLR camera (2.32 arcsec/pixel), and an Astro-Physics 1200 mount on 15 March 2015 in Mayhill, NM.. Total exposure of 1 hour (4 x 15 min lights, dithered; 12 darks; 128 bias; 64 flats); Baader/Astro-Physics guider system; Image acquisition with MaxIm DL; Calibration, alignment, integration, and image processing with PixInsight
