Quick Hubble's Variable Nebula (NGC2261) and Intergalactic Wanderer (NGC2419)

Recommended Posts

Took advantage of a clear 90 minute window this evening to image  two objects from the Caldwell Catalogue, Hubble's Variable Nebula and the Intergalactic Wanderer (which is our galaxy's most distant globular cluster at 300,000 light years).  Both were imaged with my planetary camera, an Altair GPCam3 290c and my TEC140 with a 3.3 reducer.  Images are each around 30 minutes of 15 second exposures.  Nice to image these although I would like to have had more time but the clouds rolled in.

Nice images of some interesting objects. I particularly like the globular. I've heard about it but never looked its way!
