  1. From the album: Stars and Constellations

    Taken using Canon 100D on Skywatcher Star Adventurer - 55mm lens - single 4 minute exposure at ISO 800 You can clearly see M42 The Orion Nebula within "the sword", and there is a hint of The Flame Nebula and The Horsehead Nebula around the bottom left star of "the belt" Taken during a trip out to The Dales on Thursday night at a nice dark site between Kettlewell and Hawes

  2. Seasons greetings, all! HiloDon and I are at it again with another seasonal delight for our friends here at SGL! HiloDon provided the stellar images and I created the musical landscape and produced the video. There's a little surprise near the end! Hope you enjoy! For all who observe, have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Reggie
  3. From the album: The next step.

    I like the flame nebula and the horsehead appearing was a bonus as well. approx 16 x 1min exposures canon 300D, 200p EQ5 - DSS.

  4. Greetings Astronomers, The work on imaging my next object has begun, and as always and common to us all, I have to juggle imaging between clouds and moon phases. This is 3 hours of halpha data of 900s and 500s subs captured the night before full moon and on the full moon night through a 7nm Baader Halpha filter using a modded Canon 40D DSLR. I'm hoping to spend a night imaging 30 minute subs (when the moon shrinks to last quarter or smaller) to try to capture some of the dimmest nebulosity as well as spend perhaps another night imaging 15 minute subs through a Baader 7nm OIII filter to see what difference adding OIII signal to the final color image will make. Before the moon was first quarter I've acquired 3 hours of usable RGB data across 2 mornings of 300 second subs. After stacking I realized that I need more RGB subs for enough SNR to stretch the data, so my plan is to perhaps spend another night of exposing 300 second subs but through a unmodded DSLR, once complete, I'll stack and process the RGB frames and add the narrowband data to it for a full color image. Sorry for the drawn out ramble... clear skies, MG
  5. From the album: DSO, Nebula, Galaxies, Comets etc

    The Orion constellation taken 14.01.16 using Canon 100D on Skywatcher Star Adventurer. A reworking of my original image using Gimp. Bringing out the detail and colours of the nebula has unfortunately also brightened the LP to the lower half of the image. You can clearly see M42 The Orion Nebula within "the sword", and there is The Flame Nebula and The Horsehead Nebula around the bottom left star of "the belt". You can also see an element of Barnard's Loop which is the red band that curves around the left hand side of the image.

    Orion's Belt

    From the album: Astrophotography

    Taken with my iOptron Skytracker and Canon 70d with 300mm lens. Wish I'd stayed out longer as the Horsehead was just starting to show! 25 x 1 min exposures at ISO 6400.
  7. Heres my version of the flame nebula, take last month. Taken through my MN190, in h-alpha, the camera was an Atik 314 mono. Did this one last year, but more subs this time improved it from last attempt. 18 x 8 min subs...........
  8. I gave orion another quick go with no moon, but this time with only 50x6sec subs and no callibrationframes. actually I am quite happy with the results. (have a bit of issues with color balancing) let me know what you think! I have attached a tif version and a jpg. I think the tif version looks the best. Orion widefield 27-11-2016.tif Still find myself overprocessing Clear skies! Victor Boesen
  9. I don't seem to get to do many imaging projects for myself these days. This year in particular seems to have been particularly lacking in clear dark nights, I don't know if you would agree? Complicating matters further in my locale has been a huge and long lasting A45 bypass, three years and still not quite finished. The site has been working 24/7, and they put perimeter lights all around the temporary site office complex. At the same time my kind neighbour (who knows what I do for a hobby and for pocket money) decided to install the brightest floodlight I have ever seen, and leave it on all night every night, shining at 90° over my garden.... At any rate, I found some subs that I captured in March of this year using a Skywatcher Esprit 150ED, and Atik 11000 camera. I don't actually remember capturing the data to be honest, so it was a nice surprise to find it on my HDD. Possibly the most photographed DSO in the sky, the iconic Horsehead nebula is instantly recognisable. For this picture I have combined a little bit of RGB colour data with the bulk of the data gathered with a Hydrogen alpha filter. Recently @ollypenrice posted a lovely picture of the same area, and somebody made a Facebook comment about letting the stars shine out. Which got me to thinking, rather than try an minimise the effects of Alnitak, the huge, hot, blue star on the mid left, I'd just let it do it's thing, dominating the picture, as it dominates in the eyepiece. Although the flame nebula and rear of the Horsehead are the brightest emission nebulae in the vicinity, the whole area is awash with thick clouds of gas and dust. This image represents the way I imagine the area would look if we could get in a bit closer. The image represents around 15 hours of Ha data, and 45 mins or so of Red, Green and Blue. Thirty minute Ha exposures. I've included the Ha image alone, and also a cropped approximation of the actual eyepiece views you may experience in dark skies, with a 16 inch telescope, using a Hydrogen beta filter. I saw this for the first time in the autumn and had of those astro moments that stays with you for a long time. A Hb filter is definitely on my shopping list once I get my dob mirror sorted. Thanks for looking. Tim
  10. Not very exciting I know but here is my effort at the flame with no mod camera. It did also pick up the HH (just) but was right at the very edge of the frame. 120 x 29s 20 Dark 20 Bias SW200pds EOS 5dmkiii unmodified
