    Saturn debut

    Great first Saturn! I remember my first time viewing (and imaging) Saturn; it's an experience you'll never forget! Keep it up! Reggie

    Brilliant, Charl! You captured some interesting real estate there! I hope you get to capture the upcoming lunar eclipse Reggie

    Nice ones, Charl. The one with the clouds is kinda spooky and cool. I'm planning on a good night for the lunar eclipse next Sunday night! Reggie

    Annual M42 Image

    Thanks, tooth dr. I'm really pleased with this year's image. Seeing and transparency can make all the difference.

    Annual M42 Image

    Hi, all. Here is my annual M42 image, taken at prime focus with my Nikon D3200 and 127mm Mak, single 30 sec sub at ISO 800. I also posted images from previous years. Only the 2018 image was shot at ISO 1600 to bring out more detail. The images prior to 2018 were shot with my Nikon D50; the difference between the two cameras is striking! 2019 image: 2018 image (ISO 1600): 2017 image (D50): 2016 image (D50): 2014 image (D50), first one: Now is a great time for imaging the Orion Nebula when you have clear skies. It's positioned nicely from mid to late evening, and into the wee hours (if you can brave the cold). Clear skies! Reggie

    New Year Mars 2019

    Cool sketch, Shane! I've slowed down quite a bit on Mars now and I'm glad to see others still giving it some attention Reggie
  11. Awesome animation, Dave! That was one fast moving comet! Reggie

    Mars in December

    Thank you Yes, Mars is getting more challenging to image. It's a good time for me to end my run of images now until the next opposition in 2020.
