  1. Hi all I wanted to make the Albireo Star stand out from the back ground to really make this King of stars stand out Enjoy Albireo views from a bright single point into a double star of amazing colors. At around 380 light years distant, the two bright stars of Albireo are far from each other would take around 10,000 years to complete a single orbit. The brighter yellow/orange star is itself a binary star system. With good focus and steady hands, 10x binoculars you will be able to view it. Imaged from London (UK) old data that I found Date: 17/05/2015 T
  2. That is very true. I could see the void of stars. Perhaps I'll look to add on the data if I get round.
  3. Thanks Peter. And welcome back
  4. NGC 659 is an open cluster in the Cassiopeia constellation. It was discovered by Caroline Herschel in 1783. NGC 654 is an open cluster visible in the constellation of Cassiopeia; It is located in the Perseus arm at a distance of about 7800 light years from the solar system. Equipment used Telescope: Takahasi TOA - 130N Camera: 690 CCD Mount: Ioptron CEM60 (unguided)
  5. Hi all I was just testing out the scope last light and done some unguided imagine just to get back in the swing of things. The stars in these in this lovely cluster are young, hot supergiant suns that are many thousands of times more luminous than our sun.

  6. I use to meet up with a few mates when I lived at Stratford. I live in romford now and and not many ( not at all ) people interested
  7. Thanks all.. It was beautiful clean data. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Happy new year !! The #Carina #Nebula is a bright, large emission nebula surrounding the star #Eta Carinae, located in Carina constellation. It is also sometimes called the Eta Carinae Nebula, the Grand Nebula, or the Great Nebula in Carina. The nebula’s designation in the New General Catalogue is NGC 3372. It is one of the largest diffuse nebulae known, one that contains several open star clusters.

  9. Quite possible yes Barry Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. The Tarantula Nebula got its name because its glowing filaments of dust resemble the legs of a spider. It is a giant starburst region where the energy from the bright, hot young stars creates huge voids and filaments in the surrounding clouds of gas. It is huge, being nearly 640 light years across. It is also known as 30 Doradus, Caldwell 103 and NGC 2070. It is the most active region of star formation in our local group of galaxies. This image is a bit larger than 1/2 degree square. North is to the lower left. Supernova 1987A occurred at the edge of the Tarantula. This image shows the incred

  15. Thanks all. I've been given some more data to work on Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Totally agree Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  18. I had a go at some data that was sent to me to process from a good friend in Brazil Omega Centauri globular cluster with galactic dust. Several galaxies and integrated flux nebula may be seen in the background. Processed Jaspal Chadha Data Captured by Professor Luiz Duczmal Equipment FSQ-106ED, Atik 383L+ mono, EM-200. Date: January 30, 2014. Total exposure: 1.5 hours. Frames: 18 x 300 seconds: L(6), R(4), G(3) and B(5).

  20. M76 also known as the Little Dumbbell Nebula, is a planetary nebula located in the constellation Perseus. The nebula lies at an approximate distance of 2,500 light years from Earth Planetary nebula, like M76 and M57 and M27, are made of glowing shells of gas ejected by stars late in their life. The gas is ionized by the ultraviolet radiation from the hot core of the star. Despite the name planetary nebulae these have nothing to do with planets. They were named this when they were first discovered because of their similar appearance in size and color to the planet Uranus that was discovered in
