  1. The Carina nebula is coming up again in the evenings. Since it is one of my favorite objects, it's hard to resist to take another few shots each year. The total exposure time is 43 x 5min ISO 1600. Clear skies! HJ
  2. Greeting Astrolings, I'm currently in the process of imaging "the pencil" Nebula, but seeing that it's not clearing my obsy roof until past midnight, I didn't want to waste half of clear nights (since they're rare) so before continuing on the pencil, I did a random frame up on eta Carina and used a random star that popped up in the OAG FOV. I ended up doing this over a couple of nights but last night I had a bout of cloud cover for about an hour... and the Nebula drifted. PHD moved the mount looking for a guide star locking in on some noise and attempting to move it to the guide position. What resulted was, when the clouds passed and a guide star popped up, PHD grabbed it and continued imaging, except that the framing moved 2/3 of the way down... and I ended up with subs for the bottom part of eta Carina. I had plenty of subs from the previous night of the top part, so I created this mosaic... Talk about a accidental 2 pane mosaic!!! Accidently created my first DSO mosaic. This consists of 24 x 300s (top half) and 18 x 300s (bottom half) ISO400 using the modded 40D at the 8SE native focal length of 2032mm. Clear skies. MG
  3. From the album: Deep Sky Imaging

    A photo of Eta Carina and surrounding nebulosity close up in natural color. The Carina Nebula (NGC 3372) also known as the Grand Nebula, Great Nebula in Carina, or Eta Carinae Nebula, is a large complex area of bright and dark nebulosity in the constellation Carina. The nebula lies at an estimated distance between 6,500 and 10,000 light-years from Earth. Taken using a 8" SCT at F10 with a self modded full spectrum Canon 40D DSLR. This image was exposed for a total of 180 minutes, 12 x 600s and 12 x 300s ISO800 subs on 12th March 2018.
  4. Hi All, This is the photo of the Carina Nebula taken using a 8" SCT at F6.3 (1280mm focal length) with a Astro modded Canon 40D, ~59x39 arc-minutes FOV, to try and verify whether I spotted a supernova. During a imaging session of a closeup of Eta Carina which I started at the beginning of March, one SII sub (9th March) had an extra star on it, only lasted for a few minutes at most and vanished. After eliminating noise and/or a reflection, I suspected it to be either a GRB, CR or perhaps a Shock Breakout. In between the meridian flip of imaging another object, I slewed the scope toward the Carina Nebula to see is the point of light reappeared... if it was a SB than perhaps there was a chance that a supernova would have happened by now, but no such luck. I should get a T-Shirt made that says "I was looking for a Supernova, but got this lousy photo instead." :-D Clear Skies. MG

  6. From the album: Deep Sky Imaging

    A photo of Eta Carina and surrounding nebulosity close up in classic Hubble Palette style color. The Carina Nebula (NGC 3372) also known as the Grand Nebula, Great Nebula in Carina, or Eta Carinae Nebula, is a large complex area of bright and dark nebulosity in the constellation Carina. The nebula lies at an estimated distance between 6,500 and 10,000 light-years from Earth. This image was taken across 7 nights in March 2018 through 8nm bandwidth Sulfur II (SII), Hydrogen Alpha (HII) and Oxygen III (OIII) filters and combined where SII is used as the red channel, HII is as the green and OIII is as the blue channel. Taken using a 8" SCT at F10 with a self modded full spectrum Canon 40D DSLR. This image exposure time was a total of 30 hours , 24 x 900s and 16 x 1800s SII, 24 x 600s and 24 x 900s HII and 36 x 600s OIII ISO800 subs.
