Headphone Nebula
A cute informal name. More formally, PK 164+31.1 or Jones-Emberson 1. This is a faint planetary nebula in Lynx. The parent star is apparent at the center as a hot, blue white dwarf.

Details:
QSI 660 camera on 250mm RC, Astronomic HORGB filters
2 hours H-alpha, 2 hours [O III] (mapped as HOO), 20 minutes each red, green, and blue for the stars.
Processed with PixInsight and Photoshop
Final image resolution 0.71 arcsec/pixel, 21 arcminute wide field

Thanks, Chris! That's indeed a fine picture. I admire your rendition of OIII emission in the cleared-out interestingly shaped hole around the white dwarf. The way I understand it, OIII really looks more or less exactly like that. I also like the bright "gentle protrusions" into the hollowed-out center. The whitish color could be caused by a mixture of different emissions from different ionized elements.

And of course I love the very blue color of the very hot central white dwarf! :D

This shows the southern sky over the Patagonian steppe, including both Magellan Clouds. By chance, a strong green airglow was present that day, with the characteristic stripes of gravity waves in the mesosphere. The picture was taken from a very small village 30 km east from Bariloche, which urban glow can also be seen. It is a single shot of 15 s, with a Canon T7i and Tokina 14-20 at 14 mm f/2, on a tripod.

Really? You love a blue star? I never would have guessed!

The object itself has an interesting and unusual discovery history, too. See for instance https://www.astronomy.com/science/jones-emberson-1/

Its existence had escaped my notice until recently, when somebody I know imaged it. It doesn't seem to get a lot of attention from imagers, based on what I can see searching for other images.

Antares Rise Again

IC405, IC410 and IC417 - Flaming Star Nebula, Tadpole Nebula and Spider Nebula

Wide-field image of a number of emission nebulae in the Auriga constellation.

After months of cloudy nights in the Greater Toronto Area, we finally had a string of clear nights the beginning of February 2024. I took full advantage of these clear nights imaging multiple targets as they became visible from behind obstructions in my backyard. IC405, IC410 and IC417 were my "end of night" targets on two of the nights,

I processed this image in three different palettes (HaOO, Foraxx and SHO)

Imaged February 5-6, 2024 from my backyard in Brooklin, Ontario, Canada

Church under Crux

Copyright: Max Inwood

Exif: 135mm 30s f/2.0 ISO 6400 (panorama)

This image was taken at the iconic church at Lake Tekapo New Zealand, a hotspot for astrophotography in the area. This also meant there were lots of other people shooting at the same time, many with flashlights etc shining all over the foreground, which made things more difficult. Luckily the Crux/Carina region of the Milky Way didn't align with the church until later in the night, when most people had finished up and the Church was left alone under the stars.

The Witch's Head Nebula and Rigel proved to be a real challenge in my astrophotography journey.
The many hours of integration were collected in the months of November, December and January under the sky (bortle 4/5) of my small home observatory on the Adriatic coast.
The biggest obstacle turned out to be Rigel which, placed in the corner of my shooting frame, created some reflections due to my cheap filters, especially on L,G and B.

It was excellent seeing when taking photos. The balance was so perfect that we haven't experienced it in years. The stars did not squint, the image of the moon did not tremble. It was easy to break the tighter doubles, etc.

My first thought about the finished photo was as if the crew had entered orbit around the Moon and the two craters on the lower part were getting lower and lower.

Messier 82- A Starburst Galaxy
Some galaxies are especially good at generating bright new stars and have so much galactic dust and gas that they create stars at a furious rate. M82 is also called the “Cigar Galaxy” due the red glow of Hydrogen “smoke” emanating from its galactic core.

A close encounter with its galactic neighbour M81 may have pushed all the gas towards the centre of the galaxy, reaching densities sufficient to create massive new stars. When these massive stars collapse or go supernova, the gas is again compressed by shock waves and the star creation cycle continues.

My image was shot from the Ottawa backyard using long exposures captured over 10 hours during a single long Canadian winter night. I compared it to a Hubble image and was quite impressed with how well my land based, amateur equipment fared.

Description:
Abell 85 is a faint supernova remnant found in Cassiopeia. Its shape is formed by a gas cloud that resembles a brain with a spinal cord attached thus receiving the nickname the “Medulla Nebula.” It’s also sometimes referred to as the “Garlic Nebula” because it’s shaped like a head of garlic. Once thought to be a distant planetary nebula, PK116 + 00.1 is an area likely to be a region of ionized hydrogen (HII).
Clear skies,
