IC_896.jpg
NGC 896981 viewsNGC 896 a star forming region in the constellation of Cassiopeia is located adjacent the Heart Nebula (see Steve’s image “The IC 1805 Region”). The image consist of 63 x 5min lights taken with a Canon 60Da and a TPO RC astrograph on a Celestron CGM mount. Dec 02, 2014
IC_1848_(Soul_Nebula).jpg
The Soul Nebula (IC 1848)945 viewsIC 1848 the Soul Nebula, (IC 1805’s galactic neighbor) is a large emission nebula in the constellation of Cassiopeia. The image consist of 92 x 5min exposures with a Canon 60Da and Orion ED80T on a Celestron CGM mount.Dec 02, 2014
Cave_Nebula_(Caldwell_9).jpg
The Cave Nebula (Caldwell 9)1006 viewsCaldwell 9 (Cave Nebula) located in the constellation of Cepheus, is a diffuse nebula that forms part of a larger area that contains emission, reflection, and dark nebulosity. The image consist of 68 x 5min exposures with a Canon 60Da and Orion ED80T telescope on a Celestron CGM mount.Dec 02, 2014
IC_1805_in_Cassiopeia.jpg
The IC 1805 region1060 views IC 1805 is a bright heart-shaped emission nebula in the constellation Cassiopeia. The open cluster in the center of IC 1805 is Melotte 15 that contains several extremely large stars whose intense radiation ionizes the hydrogen gas in the region. To the lower left of IC 1805 is the bright nebula NGC 896. To the mid-right of IC 1805 is the open cluster NGC 1027. The image encompasses a vast region with the image scale being approximately 3.1 x 2 degrees.
The image was taken with a Canon 60Da DSLR (ISO 800) and a Takahashi FSQ 106ED with focal reducer (f/3.6; focal length = 385 mm) on an Astro-Physics 1200 mount. Image was a total of 6 hours 15 minutes exposure [75 x 300 sec lights (guided with a Takahashi Mewlon 300/SBIG ST-i); 12 darks; 128 bias; 64 flats]. Images selected (SubframeSelector), calibrated (using a “superbias” master), registered, integrated, and processed in PixInsight 1.8.3.1115.

IC_5070_a.jpg
IC 5070 (Pelican Nebula)970 viewsIC 5070 known as the Pelican Nebula is an emission nebula in the constellation of Cygnus. The nebula contains a mix of star formations and evolving gas clouds. This image is a combination of 65 x 5min exposures with a Canon 60Da camera, an Orion 80mm refractor, and a Celestron CGEM mount. Stacked with Nebulosity 3.0 and processed with Photo Shop CS6.Sep 29, 2014
M45_in_the_constellation_Taurus.jpg
Messier 45 in the constellation Taurus1135 viewsMessier 45, commonly known as the Pleiades, is an open cluster found in the constellation Taurus. Messier 45 is surrounded by a dusty reflection nebula, which accounts for its blue coloration, along with some pinkish-red coloration due to an ionized gas component. The image was processed with multiscale processing in PixInsight. The image taken with a Takahashi E-130D f/3.3 astrograph and a SBIG STF-8300c camera on a Paramount. Total integration time was 4 hr 20 min (26 x 10 min lights @ -20 degrees C; 20 darks; 64 flats, 64 bias). Images were graded in Images Plus 5.0; Sub-exposures calibrated, registered, integrated, and processed in PixInsight 1.8.2.1098. Sep 16, 2014
