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.
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.
Jelly_FishNebula.jpg
IC443 (Jellyfish Nebula)981 viewsIC443 (Jellyfish Nebula) is the supernova remnant of a massive star that exploded thousands of years ago. The nebula is located around 5,000 light years away from Earth in the constellation of Gemini. This image consist of 80 x 5min exposures taken with a Canon 60Da camera, Orion ED80T refractor, and a Celestron CGEM mount.
Iris_Nebula.jpg
Iris Nebula (NGC 7023/C4)980 viewsNGC 7023 and Caldwell 4, aka the Iris Nebula, is a reflection nebula in the constellation of Cepheus. The dust in the nebula is illuminated by the magnitude +7 star SAO 19158. The image consist of 66 x 300sec images taken with a Explore Scientific 127mm refractor, Canon 60Da, and a Celestron CGEM mount. Stacked with Nebulosity 4 and processed in PhotoShop CS6
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.
Jupiter_and_Moons_LinearFit_From_Steve.jpg
Jupiter968 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.
Sun_14Mar15_and_Sunspot_AR2297.jpg
The Sun and Sunspot AR2297952 viewsThe Sun as of March 14, 2015. This image shows sunspot AR2297 (white area top-right) which emitted several M class solar flares. The image consist of 3,000 frames taken with an ImagingSource DBK camera, 60mm Solar Max telescope double stacked, Meade LX80 mount, stacked with RegiStax and processed with PhotoShop CS6.
M78_contrast_Labels_noCircles.jpg
Messier 78 and neighbors951 viewsMessier 78 is a diffuse reflection nebula located in the constellation of Orion. The starlight bounces off the dust particles in the nebula which create the bright reflection areas. The dark area that separates M78 from NGC 2067 consist of obscuring dust that blocks the light from background stars. The image consist of over 10 hours of data (128 x 5min exposures) taken with a Canon 60Da camera, TPO RC telescope on a Celestron CGEM mount. Stacked with nebulosity and processed with Photo Shop CS6.
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.
Seagull.jpg
IC2177 and NGC2327945 viewsIC2177 is a large diffuse nebula near the constellations of Monoceros and Canis Major. The sweeping arc forms the seagull’s wings while the head consist of NGC 2327 (also call the Parrot nebula). This image consist of 80 x 300sec images taken with a Canon 60Da, Orion ED80T refractor, and a Celestron CGEM Mount. Stacked in Nebulosity and processed with PhotoShop CS6
Orion_Final.jpg
Orion Nebula (M42)935 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.
NGC_6992_and_NGC_6995.jpg
NGC 6995 and NGC 6992 (The Eastern Veil Nebula)901 viewsNGC 6995 / NGC 6992 (Eastern Veil Nebula) form part of the Cygnus loop a supernova remnant in the constellation of Cygnus. Other objects that form part of the Cygnus loop, not visible in this image, are NGC 6960 and NGC 6979. The cloud of ionized gas and dust covers an area of 3 degrees (around 6 times the size of the full moon) and continues to expand. The image consist of 44 x 300sec exposures taken with a QHY10 CCD camera and Orion 80mm refractor mounted on a Celestron CGEM mount.
