    M-1. The Crab

    Hi Olly, Yes, I agree !! The problem is that this year The Crab already is gone. Early in the Summer all I have had here were rainny nights. I have to start imaging early in the morning in September, to be able to collect some narrow band subs. Best Regards, Fernando

    M-1. The Crab

    Wow Ragnar, that is amazing. The animation looks like an antenna with the lobes seen in 3D. Ten years!! I would like to have one or two more lives be able to do this kind of stuff. This image shows very well how the man is nothingness . Thank you and have a great day, Fernando

    M-1. The Crab

    Thank you so much. I agree, it is very hard to get good round stars with a LX-200 @ f/10. By using a deconvolution algorithm developed inn Maple, I got there. Thanks again, Fernando

    M-1. The Crab

    This is the final image with 15 frames of 15 minute, taken with a LX200 10” f/10. I am happy by now as M-1 is already too low in my latitude for a new trying with a monochrome camera. Next year I am going to start earlier to be possible to capture narrow band subs to mix with the LRGB image.This is actually a Supernova remnant. It is 6500 light years distant from Earth, has apparent size 8' x 4' and magnitude 8.4. In the core of the nebula there is a rotating neutron star.The filaments in the nebula are moving outward at over 1000Km/sec. The image is not a big deal, but I hope you like

  10. Thank you so much Chris. Regards, Fernando
  11. Thanks!! Give it a try. Don't forget to let me know about the outcome of your job. Have a good one!! Fernando Thank you Alan. As for the HDR program it is the Photomatix Tone Mapping PRO. It is a wonderful program for HDR and tone mapping. I use this same program for tone mapping in my solar images. Best Regards, Fernando

    M-64: The Black Eye Galaxy

    Thanks Barry !! I would like to be in the northern hemisphere to be better off in terms of object's elevation and catch some more details in the spirals. Here the maximum elevation of M-64 is 45 Deg Best Regards, Fernando
  13. Thanks again!! As for the order of the masters, you are right: ha, o3 and s2, from top to bottom, Best Regards, Fernando
  14. Thanks for the appreciation. You are a great person. Sure, I just could not uploaded them in the same scale as the original, due to their size Thank you very much for the kind comment.

    M-64: The Black Eye Galaxy

    Hi Wim, Thanks a lot for the kind words. It iis very nice to have an observatory in home. All I have to do is climbing a small stair to reach my true world. Then, is just travel here and there. Regards, Fernando Thank you !! Fernando Thank you. If I am able inspiring someone with something that I love to do, I feel really happy and honored. Thanks to provide this nice felling with me. Give a try on M-64, sure enough you will get a countless of new details. It is a shame, however, that M-64 will be visible for you only in the New Year. Best Regards, Fernando Thanks Oly, I loved your comment. Best Regards, Fernando
