The 400 hour image...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

This image is 10 likes behind the 45 hour andromeda.

Surely 400hrs deserves the top spot !

Come on like it if you like it!  :cool:

Thanks for the thought but it's not a competition, especially since Jonas and I are friends and I host some of his kit here. The Andromeda mosaic was, quite rightly, the subject of huge appreciation - and it was a one man show. Ours is a double act!

Stunning, absolutely stunning... As it has already been said, words fail me!
Trying to find a part of the image without nebulosity, nope nope nope...

Please make this a print, you already have my money for the 8m one! :D

Appreciate the sentiment, it was done in jest, to draw attention to the level of effort involved in both pieces.

Both are fantastic contributions to amateur astronomy.

A very bold project, but you nailed it! Deserves at least a feature piece in Sky At Night etc. :) Great work guys!

Olly,

Let us know when it hangs in a museum. This would be worth a trip. May be one day the same in Scorpius or Serpens?

Following on from my original post (#49) I have now had an opportunity to view the image using more than a GPRS signal on my iPhone ( :eek:) and my original suspicions have been confirmed - absolutely outstanding Tom and Olly, without doubt the most exciting image I have ever seen taken from a terrestrial location using 'amateur' equipment. I grazed my chin on the jaw-drop .....

Do you know the horizontal and vertical subtended angles of you epic image Olly?  If I get my widefield rig working in time I would like to cover a similar field of view including Barnard's Loop (think it's called).  Very low res compared with yours, of course :D

I haven't looked at this at all carefully, GIna, but it looks like about 12 degrees by 22, which is a very rough guesstimate. The large loop on the left is indeed called Barnard's Loop or SH2-276. The Loop may have been created by successive supernovae centred around M42. Thought provoking stuff...

The bar for astrophotography hasn't so much been raised, as catapulted to an altogether more elevated place - approximately 1,600 light years away. 

Inspirational work.
