NGC 2736 - The Pencil Nebula thumbnail
NGC 2736, known as the Pencil Nebula is a part of the supernova remnants from the Vela pulsar, 815 light years away.

Narrowband Helix Nebula thumbnail
I've already done the Helix Nebula in natural colour, so I've imaged it again in narrowband. Lots of H-alpha and Oxygen-III, but barely any Sulfur-II.

Astronomy as Art - The Many Faces of Narrowband thumbnail
Narrowband images are rarely presented as true color light. When imaging in narrowband, colors are assigned to each channel based on the specific emission lines captured. One of the most common choices is the SHO Hubble Pallet, but the choices for mixing colors are endless. Here are 9 examples of how an image of a planetary nebula may be colored.

NGC6357 in Narrowband thumbnail
NGC 6357 is a diffuse nebula in the constellation Scorpius. The nebula contains many proto-stars shielded by dark disks of gas, and young stars wrapped in expanding gases. It is also known as the Lobster Nebula. Presented is a narrowband SHO photograph in the Hubble Space Telescope palette.

First Narrowband, Difficult Subject: Planetary Nebula Sh2-313 thumbnail
For my first foray into narrowband imaging, I have chosen a very dim & difficult target: planetary nebula Sh2-313, also known as Abell 35 and PK 303+40.1

Eagle Nebula thumbnail
The Eagle Nebula is located 7000 light years away and is home to the famous "Pillars of Creation", shown in the centre of this image. This photograph is presented in the Hubble narrowband palette, which shows the distrubution of Hydrogen (green), Oxygen (blue), and Sulfur (red) gasses.
