Moon: Tyco/Clavius crater region1315 viewsAn image of the Tyco/Clavius region taken from Alamogordo. Tyco (53 miles in diameter, near center of image) is a relatively young crater based on samples from Apollo 17. Clavius (140 miles in diameter, lower center) is a much older crater with several smaller craters inside of it. Image taken using the C9.25 with a Imaging Source DMK41AU02 camera and Lumicon H-alpha filter. This picture is surprisingly similiar to one in the Sep/Oct 2011 SkyNews (p.36).

What a diiference a filter makes!1155 viewsHere is the Sun taken on 10/3/11 at 11:15 AM first in White light (left) and Calcium K (right) using a Stellarvue 80ED. The white light image shows a few sunspot groups while the CaK image shows much more detail and areas of increased magnetic activity. AR1302 is on the far right, nearly rotating out of view. The white light image was taken using an Orion glass filter and single snapshot from a Canon T2i. The CaK image was taken with an Imaging Source camera and Lunt B1200 CaK filter.

More Calcium-K862 viewsThis image from Jan 17,2012 shows active regions 1401/1402 in Calcium K (393.4 nanometers) as they rotated into view. This region recently threw off a coronal mass ejection (CME) that impacted Earth's magnetic field on Jan 22, 2012 creating auroras at the northern latitudes. To learn more about space weather and its impact to us on Earth, go to our AAG Classroom page and watch the video on space weather. Imaged at f14 using a Stellarvue SV80ED, Lunt B1200 CaK filter and Imaging Source camera.

Venus Transit - Calcium K1364 viewsThe AAG and Oliver Lee State Park hosted a Venus transit event on 6/5/2012 to witness this "once in a lifetime event". This photo was taken using a Stellaruve SV80ED refractor, a Lunt B1200 Calcium-K module and Imaging Source DMK41AU02 camera at the event. Venus and Earth are roughly the same size- so this gives a good approximation of the size of the Sun compared to the Earth. Multiple sunspot regions also speckle the image. The AAG also had white light and hydrrogen-alpha telescopes for the crowd to witness the event.

Mare Nectaris/Theophilus crater1176 viewsThe Sea of Nectar (Mare Nectaris) is a small lunar mare located on the eastern edge of the Moon. Theophilus is the prominent lunar impact crater that lies slightly off center of the image to the left. Theophilus is over 60 miles in diameter and is 14,000 feet deep. The small crater in Nectaris near the top of the image is Rosse and is only 7 miles across. Image taken with a 6" SCT at f20 using a DMK 41AU02 camera through a Lumicom 656 nm filter.

Crater Copernicus874 viewsCopernicus is a 93 km (57.7 miles) wide crater located in eastern Oceanus Procellarum. It is estimated to be about 800 million years old and is nearly 3.8 km (2.35 miles) deep (over twice as deep as the Grand Canyon!). Image taken using a 6" SCT at f20 using an Imaging Source DMK41AU02 camera.

The Ringed Planet1057 viewsSaturn is the 6th planet from the Sun at a distance of about 900 million miles. The rings are composed primarily of water ice with particles the size of snowflakes up to house-sized boulders. The rings extend almost 50,000 miles above the planet and average about 60 feet thick (paper thin indeed). To learn more about Saturn, go to our "PLANETS" page. Celestron C9.25 at f25, Imaging Source 21AU618 color camera.

The King of the Planets987 viewsJupiter is visible in the early morning almost directly overhead in late September/early October. Larger than all the other planets combined, its only 1/1000th the mass of the Sun. The bands visible in the atmosphere are due to upwelling compounds whose exact nature is not quite known. Ultraviolet light from the Sun caused the compounds brown, orange and other colors. Imaged taken using a 5" SCT at f25 (~3750mm) using an Imaging Source 21AU618 color camera (1/45 sec exp, 3316 fr cap/2875 stacked /90% qual)

Solar Upheaval853 viewsThe last few weeks have seen the emergence of several large sunspots as solar maximum peaks. Active Region 1967 is wider than the planet Jupiter and its primary dark cores are big enough to swallow Earth many times over. This image was taken in Calcium-K (393.4 nm) from Alamogordo, NM using a 90mm refractor at f20, and Lunt B1200 Cak module and Imaging Source 41AU02 camera.

Saturn920 viewsSaturn taken with a Takahashi Mewlon 300 Dakin 2.4x barlow and an Imaging Source DBK21AU618 OSC camera from Mayhill NM (2600 stacked images using Registax 5.1). Saturn lies about 900 million miles from Earth. It's disk measured 17.9 arc sec at its equator (with rings 40.6")

Jupiter768 viewsOn 1/23/2015 the shadows of Io, Callisto, and Europa were visible from Earth as they transit across Jupiter. This photo shows Io's shadow (someone correct me if I am wrong) as it transited across the gas giant. The image consist of 2,000 video frames taken with an Imaging Source camera and a Meade 8" SCT mounted on a Celestron CGEM mount. Frames were stacked with Registax6 and processed with PhotoShop CS6 and Steve's touch.

Jupiter with Io and Europa906 viewsJupiter was at opposition on Feb 6, 2015. In this image Jupiter is framed by its moon Io (L) and Europa (R). Image taken with a Celestron 6"SCT at f25 using an Imaging Source 21AU618 color camera. Stack of approx 2700 images using Registax 5.1, Lucy Richardson deconvolution, and Photoshop 7.0.1.
