    Night of the 9th October 2020. A clear night but unfortunately the Jet stream conspired to make images wobble like jelly on a plate! A stack of 9mins of RAW video clips. 127mm Meade Apo Refractor with 3x Barlow and QHY5-11 colour planetary camera. The best of a poor set of clips.

    From the album: Deep Sky Imaging

    These nebulae are located in the constellation Corona Australis, between γ and ε Coronae Australis and features NGC6726, NGC6729 and NGC6723. This is not a popular group of objects or part of the sky, but I thought that the combination of reflection nebula crossed by a dark nebulae make an interesting image. This image was exposed through my Celestron 8" SCT (at F10), on the CGEM mount with my full spectrum modded and cooled Canon 40D DSLR for a total exposure time of 5 hours, 59 minutes and 30 seconds.

    From the album: Deep Sky III

    M94 is approximately 17 million light years distant and contains both inner and outer rings. Star formation occurs in both rings but is mainly concentrated in the inner ring which is also known as a starburst ring, within this region, the rate of star formation is occurring so fast that it will exhaust the available interstellar gas supply well before the death of the galaxy. The extensive outer ring contains about 20% of the galaxies mass and consists of spiral arms when viewed in IR/UV, however, in visible light it appears as a halo. Exactly how the outer ring formed is subject to debate. Past theories include gravitation interaction with a nearby star system or accretion of a satellite galaxy, however, problems have been identified with each of these theories. It is also strange that in 2008 a study indicated that M94 also seems to have little or no dark matter, which is very odd since it is inconsistent with current galaxy formation models. So, all in all, a very mysterious object.

    I managed to get some time to process another of my images exposed in January/February 2020. This was the last image when my USB port on my Astro40D failed. This happened while imaging this scene but it happened toward the end of the imaging plan so I got almost the subs that I wanted. The total exposure time was 16 hours and 16 minutes in ISO1600 for all of the subs, RGB, (OSC through the UV/IR Cut filter), HAlpha and OIII. Imaged through my 8" SCT at f6.3, 1280mm FL.

    The Sculptor Galaxy, also known as the Silver Coin or Silver Dollar Galaxy, NGC 253, an intermediate, starburst spiral galaxy in the constellation Sculptor, about 11.4 million LY away, undergoing a period of intense star formation. This photo was imaged in natural color through my 8" Celestron SCT at 2032mm focal length using my astro-modded and cooled canon 40D DSLR and tracked with a CGEM mount. I imaged this galaxy when the moon was nearly at first quarter and in the same general direction as the galaxy, so I used the Neodymium filter (AKA Moon and Skyglow filter) instead of the UV/IR Cut filter to try and control the moon glare, I think it worked. Total exposure time was 5 hours 41 minutes.
