  1. From the album: Lunar

    Arzachel, Alphonsus and Ptolemaeus It feels like I have been back to basics this week with imaging, exploring sharpening options. I think I will process a few more lunar shots to help get a new sharpening process going. This was sharpened using Astra Image. --- 01/01/2016 Celestron Edge 8, ZWO ASI174

  2. From the album: Mars

    Having messed about with one of my blurry images of Mars for most of the afternoon, I may have captured the clouds over Olympus Mons or otherwise I've managed to organize 'noise' into a clump.

  4. From the album: Mars

    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.

  11. From the album: Solar

    The name is because of what's been going on in my mind. Get a camera again? Or process data others have captured, such as this image from SDO's AIA171 Angstrom data (which can't be captured from the Earth's surface anyway - the extreme ultraviolet light doesn't make it through our atmosphere). Or a bit of both? I think it's definitely no camera. It's ace to capture your own stuff, but I enjoy relaxed visual and get a bit fed up fighting clouds when imaging, and stuff like that! Maybe if I had an obsy... Oh gosh, there I go again. Stuck in a loop! --- Sun, AIA

  15. From the album: The Moon

    Last night was surprisingly clear in between the increasingly wet and windy weather fronts. After taking some video clips of Mars I pointed my 127mm Refractor at the Moon. Look as I might I could not see any fresh water lakes in Clavius.

    NGC4725 is the brightest member of a galaxy group in the constellation Coma Berenices and is about 40million light years distant and 130,000 light years in diameter. The structure is somewhat unusual, consisting of just one spiral arm which is tightly wound around the core and can be followed for about 1.5 revolutions. The spiral arm consists of dust and gases including bright blue stars and pinkish Ha regions which indicate star forming regions. Towards the center, much older, yellow stars can be seen. The galaxy is classified as a Seyfert Galaxy, indicating that the center contains a superma

    A second attempt at the Witch’s Broom Nebula (NGC6960), this time in narrowband. It took me 3.5 months to acquire the data, which was caused by a combination of poor UK weather and the partial obstruction by trees at my location. Although imaged in narrowband, I tried to go for realistic looking colours so started with Ha mapped to red and OIII mapped to blue with a synthetic green generated from a Ha/OIII mix. After a few hue adjustments, I ended up with a colour image which mainly gave blue/reddish stars and nebula. I found that detail could be boosted by creating a super luminance ima

    LBN 438 is a dusty nebula located in the Lacerta constellation which is also known as the sand worm (from the Dune science fiction series) or the shark nebula. It doesn’t appear very often on SGL, probably because it is so faint ! It is illuminated by interstellar radiation known as Extended Red Emission (ERE). ERE is a relatively recent discovery (1975) and is a photo-luminescence process whereby hydrogenated amorphous carbon is illuminated by interstellar photons in the 500 to 1000nm spectral range. Although the nebula also contains ionized hydrogen, it only emits a relatively weak

    Captured on the 26th of August 2020, Saturn with 5 moons (Tethys, Mimus, Enceladus, Rhea, Dione), 1 unconfirmed moon and a star up the top of the image. The blue dot towards the bottom right of the rings I'm not sure about, possibly Janus moon but Stellarium showed it nearer the ring. Seeing condition were average to good from Mandurah Western Australia. Captured in SharpCap 3.2, Stacked in AutoStakkert 3, wavelets in RegiStax 6 and edited in PaintDotNet. Saxon 8" Maksutov Cassegrain, ZWO ASI224MC, SkyWatcher EQ6 Pro.

    It's by no means a prize winning image, but it's my first one except photos of the moon. I even got andromeda in there and that makes my tummy tingle! Unprocessed of course.
