  1. Martin, this is a awesome picture. Things like this make me love the video astronomy. Thanks for sharing.
  2. Thanks for your complete explanation. We are using the same scope. Clusters pictures with RGB combination are a little more colorful than ones taken wit my color camera ( ATIK Infinity). I like it.
  3. Fantastic shots Martin Are you explained in other place what scope/camera/software are you used? Im very interested to know this and I can't find it.
  4. Two big and nice galaxies in the same FOV. The end of winter opens the way to galaxies... Leo, Virgo... Spring is coming. Targets are M 65 and M 66, taken at 25x12" exp. Seeing FWHM=4,4, Altitude over horizont=38º and no Moon. Scope: Skywatcher f4 + ATIK Infinity + ATIK software M 65 Y M66 GX LE0 25X12 S=4,4 38º L=0 GIMP
  5. Thanks for your comment. The Infinity software helps a lot to get a good result, but the objet is bright, nice and curious.
  6. NGC 2976 is a 10th magnitude Spiral Galaxy appearing in the constellation Ursa Major. It is 12 million light years from our solar system. NGC 2976 appears roughly 5.8 x 3.0 arcminutes in size, corresponding to a physical diameter of 19535 light years. It is a spiral galaxy of morphological type Sc, and it moving away from us at 5 kilometers per second. This picture was taken with 20x15" expo with a f4 reflector and a Infinity color.
  7. Thank for your encouraging words. I will pos more when weather permits.
  8. Visible with a small telescope, NGC 3184 has an apparent magnitude of 9.8 and a diameter of 6.9 arc minutes. It is oriented face on, with a small nucleus and long sprawling spiral arms. This type Sbc galaxy has striking blue spiral arms, with many pink star forming regions. Two of the largest of these HII regions are named NGC 3180 and NGC 3181 NGC 3184 Y 3180 Y 3181 GX and ZHII URSA MAJOR 15X15" /SEEING FWHM= 3,6 /Alt= 68º /Luna=0 GIMP Skywatcher 200/800 and ATIK Infinity color
  9. No, Robert. Its a shot without reducer. Only the camera and the scope. Any filter neither. Thanks for yours comments.
  10. NGC 2841 is a very delicate, inclined spiral galaxy with tightly wound arms. It is a type Sb spiral with a bright halo containing a bright nucleus embedded in an elongated core. The halo fades sharply on the northeast, the result of a dust lane on that side of the galaxy.

  11. Thanks to all for your welcome. I will try to collaborate as well as possible
  12. Another Videoastronomy amateur learning things in this fantastic place.
