    I decided to try to maximize detail by collecting a large quantity of Luminescence data and then applying strong deconvolution to the areas of high signal to noise. I also decided to try out Mure denoise, a Pixinsight routine that reduces camera noise. The final result is an LRGB and represents just over 17 hours integration time. I hadn't noticed before the rather strangely shaped fuzzies in the backgroud - have a look at the annotated version for IC4278 and the triangular shaped galaxy PC2292105.

    Originally a test subject for my guiding issues, I collected about twelve hours of subs on this and thought I'd throw a few hours of the better ones together, total 3h 46m of 3m subs with 50 each of dark, flat and bias. My goal was to get both central stars noticeable to some degree and some detail in the ring, and this at least was accomplished.

    SH2-112 is an emission nebula in Cygnus and responds very well to Ha imaging, so I decided to blend the result of my 3nm Ha filter into the Lum and Red channels in this LRGB image. As you can see, there's quite a bit of detail within the nebula which is mainly from the Ha component of the image. It was taken with my Esprit 150 and represents just under 16 hours integration time.

    Messier 11, The Wild Duck Cluster (also known as Messier 11, or NGC 6705) is an open clusterin the constellation Scutum. It was discovered by Gottfried Kirch in 1681. Charles Messierincluded it in his catalogue in 1764. Constellation Scutum Right ascension 18h 51.1m Declination −06° 16′ Distance 6,200 ly (1,900 pc) Apparent magnitude (V)6.3 Apparent dimensions (V)14.0′ The Wild Duck Cluster is one of the richest and most compact of the known open clusters, containing about 2900 stars. Its age has been estimated to about 250 million years. Its name derives from the brighter stars forming a triangle which could resemble a flying flock of ducks (or, from other angles, one swimming duck).(Wikipedia) DAY: Sunday DATE: 28/8/16 TIME: 22:00 SCOPE: Dob 10px Sky-Watcher F.L.1200/4.7 EYEPIECES: Excplore Scientific 20mm F.O.V 68° LOCATION: Mammari

    My first attempt at the Cave nebula (SH2-155). The LRGB image below has an Ha blend into the L and Red channels and was taken with my Esprit 150. I decided to decrease the vibrancy of the colours from the original image posted.

    The galaxy M58 is located in the Virgo constellation and is approximately 65 million light years from Earth with a disk diameter of approx 110 thousand light years. It's relatively low in new star formation, having little hydrogen gas which is concentrated in its elliptical core. The core is relatively dim and is believed to contain a super-massive black hole of 70million solar masses. Images of this object are rare on SGL, so I thought I would attempt to capture it. The LRGB image below represents just over 10 hours integration time and was taken with my Esprit 150. If you look closely, you can see a few details of the core.

    This is an image of NGC 1316 which is located within the Fornax Cluster, a cluster of galaxies in the constellation Fornax. NGC 1316 is located at the edge of the Fornax Cluster and about 62 million LY away from our Solar System. NGC 1316 appears to be interacting with NGC 1317, a small spiral galaxy visible below NGC1316. I’m happy with the amount of detail captured in this generally boring galaxy, I particularly like the "jets" streaming out of the core. This photograph was imaged with my cooled Canon 40D DSLR and with my 8" SCT at 2032mm focal length for a total exposure time of 20 hours and 25 minutes across multiple nights.

    I like that region, it's rich with emission and reflection nebulas, open and globular clusters, and even a planetary nebula (though you can't guess it in the photo). It's also about the lowest I could shoot at the milky way this season, without getting too much light pollution. From middle left to upright through center: Kaus Borealis (star), M28 (glob), M8 (laguna), M20 (trifid), M21, M23 (open). Also some minor globulars SW of laguna can be guessed as fuzzy stars.

    M76, which is also known as the the Little Dumbbell, Cork or Butterfly Nebula is a planetary nebula about 4.5 light years across and approx 4000 light years distant. It was formed about 10,000 years ago when the central dying star lost a huge amount of matter. The structure of the nebula has two inner lobes and two fainter outer ones. High Ha emissions are present along with OIII emissions which create a the teal (blue/green) cast. As for the title, the bright star reminded me of Sunrise on Earth, hence the name. (For the more literal among you, the bright star is HD10498 which has apparent magnitude of 6.6, so you'd probably be unable to see this with the naked eye. It's about 27x the size of our Sun and is approx 900 light years distant). The LRGB image below represents over 15 hours integration time and was taken with my Esprit 150.

    Noticed I had some mail from the Autonomous Robotic Telescope (COAST Galaxy Camera -BVR filters) credit :The Open University. Played about with the image and quite pleased with this rather soft view of the Globular Cluster Messier 3. What beautiful things are these faint balls of ancient stars and what views would intelligent creatures have from alien planets around stars in their midst? Messier 3 is a wonderful Globular Cluster!

    This is the SHO result of my first imaging object with the cooled Canon 40D. Through out the imaging, the camera failed a number of times due to condensation buildup inside and so this is a result of two different 40D bodies and sensors. I captured some HAlpha data with the originally cooled 40D before it failed and the second half of the HAlpha, OIII and SII are captured with the second modded and cooled 40D    Exposures: SII: 30x1200s HII: 30x600s OIII: 30x900s ISO1600 Telescope: BOSMA Beta RE  Focal length: 500mm
