WR134.jpg
Wolf Rayet 134 is one of 3 similar stars located about 6000ly away in the Constellation Cygnus. They were the first stars of this type studied and given the designation Wolf-Rayet. WR 134 is a very hot star nearly 400,000 times as luminous as our Sun. This star sheds its outer layers in a complex formation of streamers and bubbles formed from the intense stellar radiation pushing out from it. The material shed from the star glows brilliant blue in striking contrast to the dense cloud of hydrogen, sulfur, and dust it is embedded in.

I did this shot of the Veil Nebula using the Epsilon 180Ed , ZWO ASI2400MC pro One Shot Colour and Askar Dual Band Ha/O3

I am just gobsmacked how much I was able to bring out for such a relatively short amount of exposure... and on a OSC no less!!
These Dual Band filters reinvents OSC imaging in my opinion.

Exposures were 56 x 300s sub exposures 4.6 hrs total for each panel. (Two Panel Mosaic)

Thanks taking a look

There are times when reality surpasses imagination and, precisely that happened on July 23, 2023, when I was able to record the moon setting over the Khafre pyramid from the terrace of the Atlantis Pyramids Inn. This vision will forever remain in my mind as it also symbolizes our humble and personal tribute to the 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon" album, which inspired this trip connected with the Echoes return to the ruins of Pompeii by Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets.

The single-shot picture was obtained using a Nikon D7200 with a Tamron AF 18-270mm on a Manfrotto tripod.

Seahorse Nebula - Spilios Asimakopoulos.jpg
The awesome Seahorse Nebula (Barnard 150) in the constellation Cepheus! The name accurately reflects the appearance of this dark nebula. The dark nebula is part of a larger molecular cloud located 1200 light years away. The dust of the nebula blocks the light from stars and gases that are further away in the arms of our Milky way galaxy. I shot this all in one night from my dark sky location , one of the few clear nights in the last two months.

THE DOLPHINHEAD NEBULA
- Deepspace object LHOO, 560mm
- Constellation Canis Major

Image

The Dolphinhead Nebula, also known as RCW 11, is an enchanting H-2 Region in the constellation of the Great Dog (Canis Major). About 5200 light-years from Earth, this cosmic dance of luminous gas and dust rises like a dazzling jewel in the night sky. The delicate mixture of bright red and soft blue creates a fascinating play of colors that captures the imagination. The nebula takes its name from the graceful arcs of ionized hydrogen gas that resemble the elegant shapes of a dolphin peering out of the water. This celestial work of art is the product of the interaction between a massive star and the surrounding interstellar clouds of matter. The massive star that created the bubble - a Wolf-Rayet star - is the bright star near the nebula's center. Wolf-Rayet stars have more than 20 solar masses, they are probably in the evolution of massive stars in a short phase before a supernova. The fast winds of this Wolf-Rayet star create the bubble-shaped nebula by compressing slower material from an earlier phase of evolution. The wind-blown nebula is about 70,000 years old.

SH2-308 is a stunning and fascinating celestial region that transports the viewer on an unforgettable cosmic adventure. Amidst the darkness of space, SH2-308 shines as a sparkling jewel surrounded by a dazzling nebula of vivid colors. The electrifying mix of luminous red, soft blue and mysterious violet paints a picture of unbridled beauty and unprecedented wonder.

Individual star-forming regions are like sparkling birthplaces of stars, where the intensity and fervor of the birth of new suns exude an aura of unimaginable energy. While immersed in SH2-308, it is easy to imagine the forces of creation and destruction merging in an ever-growing harmony.

Hello everyone,

I was aiming 5 nights for this fantastic target ...far from perfect but I´m happy about that result, tried this one several times in past 3 years but never catched that faint OIII emissions before. Sure now when I have the f3 Newton is little bit easier...yet still pretty difficult target drowned into the noise and much stronger H-Alfa emissions around which was left behind in this case to reveal the squid part. Wanted to keep the effect of ,,crystal glass,, for the squid part...just love it this way so the stars inside nebula still shine nicely and sharp. Looks more naturally to me and it does have a kind of ,,3D look,, too .. hope I succeeded somehow.

NGC 6992 - The Eastern Veil Nebula

One of the iconic constellations of summer nights is the Cygnus. A simple constellation, but still full of interesting objects.

The Veil Nebula complex is a supernova remnant. The remains of a large star that exploded 6,000 years ago. The nebula is huge, about 50 light-years in diameter, it looks like seven full moons placed next to each other.

When the star exploded, it was so bright that you could see a slight glow in the sky like a first-quarter Moon, so it was the brightest object in the sky other than the Sun and the Moon.

The nebula is an exciting target and can even be photographed with a telephoto lens, although cameras equipped with narrow-band filters bring out the details best when photographed through binoculars.

The recording was a big summer project, where the color cooled camera was mounted in front of a dual-narrowband filter for haze details and a standard IR/UV block filter for colors.
