Arcturus and Napoleon’s Hat

From 03-06-2015 a 2-frame mosaic of Arcturus taken with the Sky90 array and the M26C OSC CCDs. Each frame was 30 subs at 4-minutes per sub. In the 5 o’clock position is the asterism called “Napoleon’s Hat”.

Epsilon Cassiopeiae and Greg’s Lambda

Reprocessed data from 09/09/2015 – the bright star towards centre bottom is Epsilon Cassiopeiae (the topmost left star in the Cassiopeia “W”) – and in the 11 o’clock position is an interesting asterism I call “Greg’s Lambda” as noone else seems to have laid claim to it. This is a Sky90 array/M26C OSC CCD image with each frame being 12 subs at 10-minutes per sub.

Kemble’s Cascade

This is Kemble’s Cascade in the constellation Camelopardalis – and in this image the Cascade has been made more apparent by using the Akira Fujii effect. Another old data reprocess from 22/09/2015. This is a 4-frame mosaic using the Sky90 array and the M26C OSC CCDs. 3 of the 4 frames are 12 x 10-minute subs, and the 4th frame is 15 x 10-minute subs giving a total exposure time of 8 and a half hours. This is a large crop to centre the cascade.

Rosette Nebula Reprocess

This is a reprocess from 03/02/2016. The Rosette nebula captured using the Sky90 array and the M26C OSC CCDs. This is only 6 subs, but at 2500-seconds (just over 41-minutes) per sub, giving a total exposure time of just over 4-hours.

Carbon Stars U Cygni (Left) and SV Cygni (Right)

This is one of my favourite images that I have taken from the New Forest Observatory. This is the 32 Cygni region in Cygnus and apart from the beautiful wispy nebulosity – there are also a beautiful pair of Carbon stars in the top 1/3rd of the image. Those two very red stars are U Cygni on the left, and SV Cygni on the right. Image acquired using the Sky90 array and the M26C OSC CCDs. This is a composite image and is approximately 8-hours of total exposure time in 10 and 20-minute subs.
