Deep sky imaging showcase 2019

Recommended Posts

Many apologies for the late(ish) setup for this, but (yay!) its now time for the 2019 imaging showcase!! :)

Please use this thread to showcase your best images captured during 2019. Just one post per member but you can include up to 5 images if you want.

The thread is for all imagers, both novices and advanced.

Please keep details to a minimum - scope and camera possibly along with a few comments.

The thread needs to be packed with images so please don't respond to the postings. The previous years showcase thread(s) can be found here:

Only one night in six was any good this year.  

All using Astro modified Canon 700d

My first attempt at a bi-colour, Ha and Oiii, the Witches Broom:

Putting these in order, First a wide field of Orion, HRGB, 35mm f/2.8 Leitz Elmarit-R, ASI1600 Star Adventurer. This is the first image from my Bortle 4 location. The huge spikes are from an unseen telephone wire.

1657068467_CroppedHRGB.thumb.jpg.9a762d857f92cce96f93579c52bc95f0.jpg

And a close up of the Sword and Flame. 180mm f/3.4 Leitz Apo-Telyt-R, again with ASI1600, HLRGB

852183568_DuffHaLRGBFullsize.thumb.jpg.cfa717b6f3738b1464f0ed2af1e433b0.jpg

Markarian's Chain. the only image I managed during "Galaxy Season". WO Megrez 90, 0.79x reducer, ASI1600 on HEQ5. There are a few trails that I couldn't get rid of.

1893027656_LRGBwithFlats.thumb.jpg.ced35285176c33dc1536fe881e9a9e20.jpg

Then a long gap until August, and the Crescent Nebula in Cygnus. HOO mapped H>red, H+O>green. O>blue. TS Photoline triplet apo, SX694, Astrodon 3nm NB filters.

349613542_TrialHHOOFullSize.thumb.jpg.3eb6a376ba0df5dc7798d9988d02cecb.jpg

And lastly the Deer Lick group with Stephan's Quintet. Again the TS apo with Baader LRGB and Astrodon H-alpha, 17.5 hours total.

940126394_17HourLRGBFinal.thumb.jpg.5843c3bface20a2e172c5fdd5aa2e694.jpg

And that's it. Unfortunately I cannot include my image of M33, as that was the beginning of January this year.

Only 3 photos for me this year (!), two of the below are detail shots, but I'm pleased with what I managed - loving my long focal length plus narrowband detail 🙂

Friends, here are some of mine 2019ers. More images and info on them on: https://www.astrobin.com/users/gorann/

Cheers, Göran

M100 and as many neighbors as I could squeeze in. Home obsy with Esprit 150 and ASI071 on Mesu200. 7.1 hours.

1031326345_20190406M100RGB2PS32smallSign.thumb.jpg.a59ae02a1a8df8dac9fc62571cbd23b7.jpg

NGC 7331 and Deer Lick group. Home obsy 2. First light with the mighty Meade 14"LX200R (ACF) on EQ8. Canon 60Da for RGB and ASI1600MMcool for Lum. 5 hours.

927164447_20190827NGC7331PS78smallSign.thumb.jpg.ead31cdb6e3ed829f131adae00696d71.jpg

Cave Nebula (Sh2-155) HaRGB. Dual rig in home obsy with ASI1600 for Ha on Esprit 100 and ASI071 for RGB on Esprit 150, on Mesu 200. 14.8 hours.

1594542829_20191006CaveNebRGBPS57smallSign.thumb.jpg.e60a3bf45abacbff95dcf92b1c74261f.jpg

Some space oddities. The major blob is Sh2-232 and the two minor blobs to the right are Sh2-235 and Sh2-231. Not sure what the fourth and smallest blob is called. I collected RGB with the Esprit 150 and ASI071 (0.79x TS reduser) and Ha with the Esprit 100 and ASI1600MM cool. Dual rig on Mesu 200 in home obsy. 15 hours.

722952330_20191129Sh2-232PS39smallSign.thumb.jpg.73eea3af8f2ec4ef3df70d98528c3763.jpg

Finally, one image from my trip to Lizard Island on the Great Barrier Reef in December. A two panel mosaic of the Witchhead Nebula (IC2118) lighten up by Rigel, taken with Canon 300 mm f/4 USM and ASI071 on a Star Adventurer travel mount. 4.2 hours on a very dark sky far from "civilization".

These were my best from 2019, all taken with my 10" GSO/Altair Truss F7.9, Moravian G2-8300Mk II, I'm sure I could process far better than then, but at the time I was really quite pleased.
