  1. Hello again, This is another image to continue with my southern objects imaging for anyone interested in what's up down here, especially if you're in the northern hemisphere and can't see this far south. This is the Jewel Box cluster which is located in the constellation CRUX. It is about 6400 light years away and also known as Kappa Crucis. The designation Kappa Crucis has been assigned to one of the stars in the base of the A-shaped asterism of the cluster, personally I would have designated it to the star at the apex of the A, just because it's the brightest in the asterism, but that's me and I'm just a amateur. Just like NGC4833, this image was also taken with a stock Canon 40D DSLR through a 8" Schmidt Cassegrain telescope at 2032mm focal length. It consists of around 120 minutes of 60, 120 and 180 second subs at ISO400. I imaged this asterism as a secondary object on the second night of NGC1097 imaging, again, after the Galaxy has moved too far west and, just like last night, it would be a waste of a nice clear night to pack up the imaging gear since clear and moonless nights are rare occurrences... especially MULTIPLE such nights. Clear Skies everyone.
  2. Hi thought you might be interested in this. The Jewel box sits in Crux and is pretty spectacular in an eyepiece. This was captured using MaximDL and processed in PixInsight. Not much was done in terms of processing but as the stars are fairly young I boosted the blues a little as in its basic processed state they were pretty much white (so shorter subs needed?) location - Sydney gear GSO RC10a Truss (first light) Moravian G2 8300 with astronomiks filters AP900 mount Image data, RGB 24:24:24 in 3 minute subs Cheers
