The Golden State Nebula

NGC 1499 California Nebula

Last night I had another attempt at this one. I shot new Ha and S2 band passes of light. I skipped O3 due to the bright moon glow. Moon glow is more readily transmitted by O3 filters than Ha and S2. A nearly full moon, passing clouds and wind were my enemy, I had to throw away more than half my images.Because I only had 2 colour channels I had to synthesise the third. I did a H HS S palette combination using pixel math. I hope you like the colour combination.

Ha -> Red
0.65*Ha + 0.35*S2 -> Green
S2 -> Blue

Ha was 18, 5 minute exposures
S2 was 10, 5 minute exposures
140 minutes total exposure.

Venus over 7 months - Orbit Composite

VenusInOrbitComposite.png
[/attachment]

This is a composite image of several captures of Venus between 28 Nov 2019 and 13 May 2020. The image shows the apparent change in size and the phase change in Venus as it is captured over 7 months. The Venus images have been arranged to give the illusion of an orbit path around the Sun from our perspective which help us intuitively understand the changes in observation.

Venus capture details:
Telescope: GSO 6 Inch F5 Newtonian
Mount: iOptron CEM25P
Eyepiece: 8mm
Barlow: 3X
Nikon 1 J5 Camera
Processed from 1500 frames each using PIPP and Autostakkert. The final composite was sharpened in Gimp.

The Sun image was captured on 21 June 2020 just before the solar eclipse started.
Sun capture details:
Telescope: GSO 6 Inch F5 Newtonian
Mount: iOptron CEM25P
Nikon 1 J5 Camera
Baader aperture solar Filter
This was a single shot capture, color temperature adjusted in Gimp for visual appeal.

The little cocoon nebula


Not much information on this nebula.
A small but enchanting denizen of the Milky Way, Sh2-82 is a beautiful cloud of gas and dust consisting of an emission nebula enveloped by a hazy reflection nebula. It is embedded in the dark nebula LDN 727 and is the site of some star formation and young stellar objects (YSO). Located at a distance of approximately 3600 light years, Sh2-82 is ionized by the star HD 231616, which can be seen near the centre.

Milky Way above Czech landscape

This photo was taken in Pulčín, a small village in Czech Republic. Very quiet place, which is located at an altitude of about 675 m above sea level and where the street lights go out at night.

In the background you can see a strip of yellow light along the entire horizon, which is an example of light pollution in our country. I remind you that a professional technique was used for the photo and there is a lot of work for it to be able to see the Milky Way in such a detail on this photo.

Where is Jupiter? This year, we have a very beautiful planets drifting across our sky, Jupiter and Saturn, moving slowly to a Milky Way core. I took this photo in 13th July, when these 2 planets were further to the east. By the end of this year, we can expect them to move even closer to the Milky Way’s Great Rift!

Moonrise Above New York City
Copyright: Gabriela Levit

This Moonrise photo was taken at the waterfront in Jersey City, overlooking the World Trade Center and Manhattan skyline.

It is a stack of 39 images, taken every two minutes to show the Waning Gibbous rising. The first moon image is reddish because of the atmosphere and some thin clouds. The moon then got progressively lighter as it rose. I took a separate image for the foreground, stacked them together, and cropped the image to enlarge it.

Equipment:
Nikon D7500
18-300mm lens

Processed with StarStax, Lightroom and Photoshop.

Dark Nebula LDN1161 in Hα-SII/OIII/OIII+rgb (Sh2-132 region)
by Jose Carballada, on Flickr

Image

This dark nebula belongs to the head of the Lion Nebula or Sh2-132.

Amazing fight on this complex area where a large number of dark nebulae, emission gases and eruptive stars give to us this nice show.
I need to explore more in detail this region on my next captures!!!

On this picture, I integrated more than 75 hours in narrow band and rgb data to resolve all possible details and structures.
Processed on natural colors using a palette ha+Sii / Oiii / Oiii and RGB stars.

NGC 6888 The Crescent nebula and PN G75.5+1.7 The Soap bubble

My first non-test image with the new telescope. Nearly 20 hours of acquisition time. I chose this target as I had good data set from last year to compare the image quality of the new telescope with and because I really like this target.

Telescope: TS Photoline 130/910 APO Triplet with 3" 0.8x reducer
Camera: ZWO ASI1600MM Pro with ZWO Narrowband filters
Mount: iOptron CEM60
Sowftware used: SGP, PHD2 for acquisition and Pixinsight and Photoshop for processing

COPYRIGHT: Data and Processing Rodney Michael

I began experimenting with mosaics in August. My first effort is the Veil Nebula.

This is a 4-panel mosaic in HOO (HOO=RGB) captured over 23-days, approximately 2.5 hours of OIII and 2.5 hours of Ha per panel (37 4-minute subframes of OIII and 37 4-minute subframes of Ha per panel). The mosaic is centered on the star GSC 2688:1366.

The Veil Nebula is located in the constellation Cygnus and is an emission nebula generally agreed to be the remnant of a supernova that occurred between 5,000 and 15,000 years ago. The nebula itself is a cloud of ionized (charged) gas and particles resulting from the explosion of a large star. It is approximately 1,500 light years distant from us. The entire Veil from east to West is probably over 75 light years in diameter.

TELESCOPE: Celestron RASA, 11", f2.22
MOUNT: Software Bisque Paramount MX+
GUIDING; The SkyX Pro, Pro-Track

Hello

A great night this last 05th of September 2020, with an excellent seeing : I had the opportunity to use one of the 1-meter telescope of Calern Observatory in South of France. The result is I think excellent, with a very high resolution on Mars surface. We deem this is one of the most resolved picture of Mars made from ground
