NGC2392 - Eskimo Planetary Nebula

Recommended Posts

A DSO image in planetary settings.

This is the Eskimo planetary nebula. Small as they are, this one has less than 1arcmin.

The image was taken with a C11 f10 and ASi224. No cut-off filter was used.

The capture was made with Firecapture and 2s exposures. The final processing was in PI.

Apenas vai para provar o que pode ser conseguido com exposições curtas "ridiculamente". Qual foi o tempo total?

The total capture was 4 videos of 300s (150 frames each). I put everyone together with Pipp and then passed on AS3! where the 25% better were stacked. I think it was almost 250 frames.


Really easy way to get images. It does not even need guiding.

The planetary approach has to be the way to go on this kind of target.

What an absolute corker of an image.  Good choice of method.  Wonderful!

      Hi, i..m on Stargazers Lounge for long time ago, but now i have a new scope at last!!! The scope is a Skywatcher classic200p dobsonian, and i received it just one month ago. I.m really happy with it. For now, i.m using the stock eyepieces that come with the scope, a 25mm and 10mm super plossl 52. Yesterday i was received a Celestron Omni barlow, and that expands my magnification range. I posted some pics with my set. 
      Congratulations to Stargazers lounge team, this is one of the best sites to learn about astronomy and equipment. 
      Besf regards to everybody

      Having seen another forum member's deep sky experiment with the ASI120MC camera, I tried the experiment myself.
      Here are e1e2 Lyrae, the Cat's Eye planetary nebula, NGC6210 and NGC6572 all imaged with a C8 SE and the ASI120MC.  The planetary inages are single image captures, while the double-double is processed from a short video stream. 
      I also tried M57, and while I could see it in purplish colour at an exposure of 8 secs, I could not get the Sharpcap live stacking to work.
      From an EAA point of view, this camera and planetaries are a definite hit, as the camera and laptop show them better than the eyepiece, and in colour.

      PK (Perek-Kohoutek) 164+31.1 is a planetary nebula in the constellation Lynx.  It is also known as Jones-Emberson 1.  The nebula is some 1600 light years from us.
      This is Ha plus LRGB captured over several nights from the DSW facility in New Mexico on the Tak 106/QSI683 rig 
      Luminance: 18x900" bin 1x1 Red: 14x900" bin 1x1 Green: 17x900" bin 1x1 Blue: 16x900" bin 1x1 Ha 5nm: 13x1800" bin 1x1 Another object I think I will revisit in my Esprit 120.

      Hello folks!

      On saturday, I sent stargazing with my girlfriend at a friend's place. The sky is not too bad, but unfortunately there still is some light pollution in direction of the south.

      I was looking at NGC246 (In Cetus constellation, which was still south-east) when I asked them if they would "allow" me to sketch it. They did.

      Here is the result:

      I'm not really satisfied since the "right" extensions are not it the right place. I mean, the fourth star should be in the center of the "spikes" and not on the border. Better luck next time.

      Taken last night a bi-colour image of NGC 1514 Planetary nebula. 18 x 6 mins in h-alpha, and the same in OIII. Camera was a mono atik 314....taken through the skywatcher MN190.
