Lagoon Nebula Reprocessed thumbnail

Cloudy nights and full moons gave me a chance to have another look at one of my first deep sky photographs. The first image taken through my telescope that made me say "wow". I decided to try reprocessing the original data with the skills I've learned in the past few months.

Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1365 thumbnail

NGC 1365 is a barred spiral galaxy 56 million light years away. Presented here is a hydrogen alpha enhanced color photograph.

Often I like to see how an image is processed from start to finished. Presented in this animation are the main processing steps in sequence from my image of NGC 1055

Asteroid 2015 TG237 Passing by Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1365 thumbnail
23-Nov-2015
While looking through the data captured of NGC 1365, I discovered an object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as asteroid 2015 TG237, discovered just last month.

NGC 1055 is an edge-on spiral galaxy located 52 million light-years away.

Asteroid 2002 UY1 Passing by NGC 1055 thumbnail
14-Nov-2015
While looking through the data captured last night of NGC 1055, I discovered an object slowly moving through the field of view. It seems to be moving much more slowly than a satellite, so I can only conclude it must be an asteroid. Thanks to Le_Baron on Reddit, the asteroid was identified as 2002 UY1.

Horsehead Nebula in Hydrogen Alpha thumbnail

I decided to take advantage of the only clear night for over a week to play with some new toys: an Astronomik 6nm Hα filter, and a Starlight Xpress adaptive optics unit. After learning how to calibrate and use the AO, I settled on the Horsehead Nebula as my target.

NGC 300 thumbnail

NGC 300 is a spiral galaxy in the constellation Sculptor. It is one of the closest galaxies to the Local Group at 6 million light years distance.

Test Shot of the Sculptor Galaxy thumbnail
10-Oct-2015
I was playing around with my camera binning modes in preparation for a dark sky trip next weekend, and ended up with this. Even though it's just a test shot, I think it turned out pretty well. New lesson learned; don't overexpose the stars.

Animation of Helix Nebula Processing Stages thumbnail

Helix Nebula NGC7293 thumbnail
06-Oct-2015
The Helix Nebula, also known as The Helix, NGC 7293, is a large planetary nebula located in the constellation Aquarius, 695 light years away.

Test Shot of the Orion Nebula thumbnail
19-Sep-2015
My original target was the Helix Nebula, but after spending most of Saturday night trying to work out how to use off axis guiding, I gave up and noticed Orion was rising. A nice bright target to use the drift aligned mount on.
