Zoom into the Orion Nebula
Click to play embedded YouTube video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JkrnhTDk7w

This animation took over 5000 frames to complete, taken over a period of three months. Each frame is a 60 second exposure. Multiple focal lengths were used, from 15mm to 600mm. The images were all registered (aligned) with each other and the zoom was accomplished digitally, dissolving from one focal length into another.

With this method I did my best to emphasize the transient nature of the night sky, showing the changing airglow (green and red color casts washing through the images) and satellites passing through this region of space. The stars will even have a bit of a twinkle to them from different seeing conditions. Everything you see is real.

Additionally I created a starless background image from the same data for each focal length. The timelapse of each frame was overlaid over the starless image using the screen method so it all blended together nicely.

Image processing (calibration, registration, color correction, star extraction) was done in Pixinsight and the animations were created in DaVinci Resolve.

Title: Celestial Marvels- Thor's Helmet and its Cosmic Companion

Description: Thor's Helmet, officially known as NGC 2359, is a stunning emission nebula located in the constellation Canis Major, approximately 15,000 light-years away from Earth. This celestial marvel earned its nickname due to its striking resemblance to the legendary Norse god's iconic headgear. The nebula is a result of a massive star's energetic winds colliding with surrounding interstellar gas, creating a captivating display of glowing gases and dust.
Nearby, is the lesser-known yet equally fascinating planetary nebula PHR J0719-1222, a final and glorious stage in the lives of Sun-like stars, where the star's outer layers are expelled, forming a colorful shell of ionized gas.

Description: My winter holiday in Seoul, South Korea is not complete without a night walk at Lotte World Skyscraper on 11th January 2024. It is the most fascinating lone-activity I made in Seoul. 555m high, it is my sky map in this big city. Combination of modern architecture and coldness of the night. It is my most memorable picture to share to the world.

ImageMarkarian'S Chain Starship Asterisk by davide nardulli, su Flickr

The Markarian Galaxies are part of the Virgo Cluster, they are also known as the "Markarian Chain" due to the fact that the group is arranged along a curved line, located more or less at the center of the Virgo Cluster at a distance from us of approximately 70 million light years away, the galaxies M84 and M86 are part of the group. They were discovered in the 1960s by B.E. Markarian, from which they take their name.

IC 2169 / IC447 in Monoceros

Image
(Thumb only)

>>>High Resolution: https://astrophoto-hannover.de/download ... s_Horn.jpg

In the constellation Monoceros, west of the Cone Nebula and the Christmas Tree Cluster IC 2169 / IC447 can be found, a true gem of a reflection nebula. Next to IC447, the smaller reflection nebulae IC 446, NGC 2245 & 2247 can also be seen. The entire region belongs to the "Monoceros R1 Complex" (Mon R1), an active star-forming region located approximately 2,500 light-years away. On the left side of the image, the star cluster NGC 2259 and some LDNs and LBNs are also present.
The image is based on 12.5 hours of RGB. To better balance the colors in the image, I enriched the area of the gas nebula with a bit of Ha and OIII signal. In doing so, I was able to use data from my capture of the Christmas Tree Cluster from last year, which fortunately overlapped exactly in this area.

I have been waiting for this transit for days. In terms of apparent diameter, it is not perfect, because the ISS was about 750 km away, i.e. the apparent diameter was 38". In an ideal situation, the maximum is around 61" from Hungary. therefore, the day before the photoshoot there would have been a 52", but it was too difficult in the terrain, too far away.

The composition was inspired by the idea that there are a couple of people out in outer space with a space station, and with that they represent almost all of humanity's sciences. It was a grandiose experience to see in articles how the space station was built, to see how they work and the traffic there... and it's all there in the evening, sometimes as a bright "star" in the sky, sometimes in front of some celestial body and we know it from a cake plate to take a photo with carved glass :).

One of the most intense phenomena that can occur in the universe is the explosion of a supernova. It can happen in two ways. The first is when a massive star runs out of "fuel" and begins to collapse on itself due to gravity. The second is when a "white dwarf" accumulates material from a "companion star" and reaches critical mass. In both cases the collapse ends with a huge explosion which totally disintegrates the initial object now made up of degenerate matter. The outer layers of the star are ejected at thousands of kilometers per second, creating a cloud of gas and dust in the interstellar medium. The "diffuse supernova remnant" is born.
The veil nebula is therefore what remains of a supernova that exploded thousands of years ago, creating three groups of waves of diffuse material that are now enormous and destined to disappear in the interstellar medium, three "veils" of gas and dust that describe a ring of about 50 light years in diameter. The main objects that we can observe today are NGC 6960, NGC 6974 and NGC 6979 with the concavities facing east, NGC 6992 and NGC 6995 with the concavities facing west.

This Nebula fascinates me. There is so much going on, not only in the main body of the Supernova Remnant which houses the Neutron Star, but also in the structures to the left of the image. Are they part of the Supernova Remnant, created at the same time? Or are they an independent structure created by other forces at a different time. If so, do they interact with the Supernova Remnant now? Are they even close to each other or just on the same line of sight?

This image shows a number of beautiful nebulae in the constellation Cassiopeia: the northern lagoon (NGC7538, top), the lobster claw (NGC7510, bottom) and the bubble (NGC7536, centre left).
A beautiful cosmic and aquatic environment!

There are also other smaller nebulae (SH2-158, SH2-159...), two beautiful open clusters (notably M52) and a few planetary nebulae (one of which is clearly visible at the bottom of the image).

This is a mosaic of 2 images taken during the summer of 2023, using the TSA-102 at 600mm focal length and the Atik16200 CCD, which means that the final result is a wide field without sacrificing resolution.

ImageCalifornia Nebula (NGC 1499) wide field by Alessandro Carrozzi, su Flickr

The California Nebula (NGC 1499). This is an emission nebula located about 1,000 light-years away from us in the constellation Perseus. The name comes, of course, from its resemblance to the outline of the U.S. state of California, a shape that requires a bit of creative interpretation to discern in the nebula's contours. It is among the most important emission nebulae in the boreal sky extending about 5 lunar diameters in length. Because of its extension, it is very difficult to observe through binoculars or a telescope, while it is at its best in photographic shots.Long-exposure, wide-field photography is also able to show the rich field of dark nebulae in which this object is immersed.

Technical data: Samyang 135mm f/3.6 with ZWO ASI 2600MM with Astrodon LRGB filters. 9x120s L, 3x120s R, 3x120s G, 30x120s B.

About the Image:
M 78 is the lesser known nebula in the grand constellation of Orion, and is a superb target for Ha-LRGB imaging in my opinion. I thought it would be a good test for my new PlaneWave CDK14 setup, but the effects on El Nino meant capturing a lot more data than I had anticipated initially as I ended up throwing away several hours of sub-frames due to poor seeing. I do love how it eventually ended up, with particularly the red hues from hydrogen-II regions counterbalancing the blue and white reflection structures.

Barnard's Merope IC349, inside Merope NGC1435 in the Pleiades

It is quite a challenge for amateur to obtain Barnard's Merope Nebula as it is a very small object and very close to the star Merope, only 36 arcminutes away.

This image features a deep integration on the California Nebula, NGC 1499, an emission nebula in the constellation of Perseus.
It's located at a distance of about 1000 light years from Earth and it's visible thanks to the ionization of gases by the blue giant star ξ Persei (Menkib).
