Sh2-140 and Abell 1656 - First and second light

Recommended Posts

Today I like to present the first and second light with my new camera, ASI 1600 MMC.

First an emission nebula in Cepheus, SH2-140, 11 hrs. HaLRGB:

Second the Coma galaxy cluster Abell 1656, 13 hrs. LRGB:

The picture also shows the Quasar QSO[HB89] 1256+280. With a redshift of 2.66, this quasar has a distance of 11.3 +/- 1 billion light years. It is thus located shortly after the Big Bang and thus the observable part of the universe:

I hope you enjoy the images as I did. The camera is worth every cent.

Superb Jens! Love the Abell galaxy clusters.  You should do 2151 too.

Very nice first and second light Jens.

Glad to read that you are enjoying your new CMOS.

Do you plan to 'retire' one or both of your Atiks now?

Thank you all for your nice feedback.

Barry, the Atik 460 Exm will take a break now. Maybe I do images with it in autumn again. For now the ASI became my standard with the newtonian.

Great image, what an achievement to capture the Quasar. 11 billion light years, now that’s a Deep Sky Object.👍
