Taken earlier this year, Noel has just finished processing one of the few single star images taken using the Sky 90/SXVF-M25C combination. This time it is the bright star Regulus. If you invert the image colours (to pick up the … Continue reading
Great news again! The Parker/Carboni double-team got their rendition of the Jellyfish Nebula region in this month’s Astronomy Now as Picture of the Month!! Thank you once again to Nik Szymanek for a very nice accompanying description.
Noel added the 3rd frame to the mega Markarian Chain mosaic and I converted it to a negative black and white image so you can clearly see all the faint fuzzies. I didn’t place M87 in the correct place in … Continue reading

Noel has just completed processing a widefield image of the region in which the quasar APM08279+5255 resides. The image is composed of 28 sub-exposures using an exposure time of 6-minutes per sub. This object used to hold the record as … Continue reading
Noel completed Star Vistas late last night, and this was the final image to be prepared for publication. This is IC443 the Jellyfish nebula, and IC444 is the large emission nebula (which also contains a reflection nebula and a very … Continue reading
Noel Carboni is putting the finishing touches to Star Vistas as this post goes out, and he created this deep-space masterpiece from a collection of old NFO data. The appropriately named Heart Nebula is a favourite target for Northern-Hemisphere amateur astroimagers.
