Noel worked his magic on this superb California nebula process which shows the extent of the “nose” on the front end of the nebula which is often missing in smaller field-of-view images.
Surprisingly, even a region which is predominantly stars can benefit from a little star reduction.
Another star reduced version of an oldie. This time it’s the North America/Pelican nebula region of Cygnus taken with the 200mm lenses and the Trius M26C OSC CCDs. This is a 3-frame mosaic.
This is a composite image of the IC2087 region combining 17 x 20-minute subs from the 200mm lenses and the Trius M26C OSC CCDs, and 26 x 15-minute subs from the 200mm lenses and the ASI 2600MC Pro CMOS cameras. … Continue reading
The day after I took the Altair left hand frame it was clear again – but with a lot of thin high cloud. Never mind I’ll still image just to keep the kit running over. Decided I would go for … Continue reading
I took a massive crop into Altair to show that all the fine dust really is stars.
Looked out at 10 p.m. last night and couldn’t believe it was clear. Satellite showed Hampshire completely surrounded by thick cloud. So I managed to image the left frame of Barnard’s “E” and then the cloud rolled in just as … Continue reading
This is a 2-frame mosaic of the whole of Canis Minor taken with the Canon 200mm prime lenses and the Trius M26C OSC CCDs. Bottom left is Procyon, top right is Gomeissa. Now I have no idea how this happened … Continue reading
A zoomed-out image of M31 taken on the Canon 200mm prime lenses and ASI 2600MC Pro CMOS cameras together with a zoomed-in image taken with the Hyperstar 4 on a C11 again with an ASI 2600 MC Pro CMOS camera.
How many galaxies here? This is a 2-frame mosaic of the whole Virgo/Coma galaxy cluster region taken using the Canon 200mm prime lenses and the Trius M26C OSC CCDs. Each frame is approximately 4-hours of 15-minute subs
