Pelican_1hr_exposure_n=1_E180.jpg
Pelican Nebula1502 viewsA single guided one-hour exposure of the pelican nebula in Cygnus taken with a Takahashi Epsilon 180 f/2.8 using a Canon 20Da DSLR on a Astro-Physics 1200 mount
M42n=30EXP2minCombineFilesSigAvg.jpg
M42 in Orion1443 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.

North American Nebula1361 viewsNorth American Nebula (NGC 7000) in Cygnus. A 3-minute exposure taken with a Takahashi Epsilon 180 f2.8 and a Canon 20Da DSLR (ISO 800)
IC_1805_n=1_3_min_exp_E180.jpg
IC 18051275 viewsIC 1805 in Cassiopeia. The loose open cluster in the center of IC 1805 is Melotte 15. A 3-minute exposure taken with a Takahashi Epsilon 180 f2.8 with a Canon 20Da DSLR.
Barnard_86-NGC_6520_n_=_4_3-minute_exposures_Stacked_and_Processed.jpg
Barnard 86 and NGC 65201264 viewsBarnard 86, which is a dark nebula, and the open cluster NGC 6520 in a Milky Way star field in Sagittarius. Four 3-minute exposures stacked taken with a Takahashi FSQ 106 and a Canon 20Da DSLR (ISO 400)
Veil_3-min_exp_n=3_E180_.jpg
Veil Nebula1252 viewsThree 3-minute exposures stacked of the Veil Nebula in Cygnus (NGC 6960) taken with a Takahashi Epsilon 180 and a Canon 20Da DSLR
The_Flaming_Star_Nebula.jpg
The Flaming Star Nebula1246 viewsThe Flaming Star Nebula, IC 405, is located in the Constellation Auriga. The nebula is illuminated by the variable star AE Aurigae that is slowly passing thru the nebula but in fact did not condense from the surrounding nebula. The image acquired with a Canon 20Da DSLR (ISO 800) and a Takahashi E 180 astrograph. Total exposure time of 2.5 hrs (30 X 300 seconds lights calibrated, aligned, stacked, and stretched (DDP) in Images Plus 3.80 and further processed in Adobe Photoshop CS4).
M31_30-min_exposure_E180_.jpg
Andromeda Galaxy1245 viewsTwo 30-minute exposures stacked of the Andromeda Galaxy (M31) taken with a Takahashi Epsilon 180 f2.8 and a Canon 20Da DSLR.
M15n=14.jpg
M15 Globular Cluster in Pegasus1225 viewsMessier 15, a gobular cluster in Pegasus, which was originally discovered by Maraldi in 1746 and rediscovered by Messier in 1764, lies 30,600 light years away. Fourteen 120-second exposures aligned, calibrated, and combined in Images Plus; processed with Adobe Photoshop CS2; taken with a 178mm f/9 Astro-Physics refractor and a Canon 20Da DSLR camera (ISO 800).

Comet Holmes1207 viewsEleven 30-sec exposures stacked of Comet Holmes taken with an Astro-Physics 178 f9 and a Canon 20Da DSLR (ISO 800)
M45_Images_Plus_R.jpg
M 451183 viewsM 45, commonly known as the Pleiades, is an open cluster in Taurus that contains about 100 stars. The blue nebulosity (some faint red nebulosity is also present) shines by the reflected light of the stars within it. Image taken with a Takahashi Epsilon 180 f/2.8 astrograph and a Canon 20Da DSLR at ISO 800. Total of 15 X 300 sec Light frames; calibrated, aligned, combined and processed in Images Plus V 3.80 followed by Adobe Photoshop CS2 (20 darks and 64 flats for calibration).
IC_410_and_the_Tadpoles.jpg
IC 410 and the Tadpoles1131 viewsIC 410 in the constellation Auriga is a nebula associated with the open cluster NGC 1893. On close examination, the two "tadpoles" can be found "swimming in the gaseous nebula." IC 410 imaged with a Canon 20Da DSLR and Takahashi Epsilon 180 f/2.8 astrograph on a Paramount.
