The Tarantula Nebula (30 Doradus)

The Tarantula nebula is located in the large Magellanic Cloud,
a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way.
This is a somewhat unique target in that we are able to image
a nebula, in some detail, situated in another galaxy.
It is said that if the Tarantula nebula wasas close to earht
as the Orion nebula, it would be visible during the day and
take up a quater of the sky.

Full Moon Rise at Abbey of Pannonhalma
Copyright: György Soponyai

Last Wednesday I travelled to Western Hungary in order to observe and capture the rising 99.9% Full Moon. Near Écs village, the Moon could be seen rising next and above the Abbey of Pannonhalma. This Abbey was founded in 996 and has been continuously functioning since then -- it's one of the earliest/oldest historical monument of Hungary. The gothic basilica was built in the 12th century. Today it's an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
I hate making HDR compositions, this is the post-processed result of one single shot. :)

NGC 247 – Needle’s Eye Galaxy

Field of Galactic Gems!

NGC-247-24-LRGBHA80small2Apod.jpg
I don’t know what else to say other than this field of galactic gems puts a smile on my face. It reminds me of when I visited the crown jewels in London. Think about how many real gems are in this portrait!

The Rosette Nebula (Caldwell 49) - Oriented in the 'Skull' position the beautiful rose turns into a spooky space skull. This image was combined with the HOSS color palette and then tweaked to ghastly Halloween color scheme.

Image data collected in Michigan in Febuary, and reprocessed for a Halloween rendition. This image represents ~7 hours of integration time.

In the theme of Halloween, I decided to shoot the "Ghost" of Cassiopeia (IC 63) & nearby IC 59.

The bright blue star is Gamma Cassiopeia (Navi) and is the central star in the W-shaped asterism of Cassiopeia.

This image has 30 minutes each of RGB for color (in the nebula and stars) and 8 hours of Hydrogen Alpha to bring out the nebulosity, of which there is quite a bit lingering around this area.

The little studied PR IC-5148 exhibits an outer halo with somewhat unusual structures as revealed by the long exposure layer in Oiii.

LDN899 Dark Nebula

Post by Mike Siniscalchi » Sat Oct 30, 2021 3:33 am

LDN899 Dark Nebula
This is a 6 panel mosaic captured using a 5nm Ha filter on an SBIG ST10XME and TMB130 OTA.
The stars were removed to highlight the Ha and better display what looks like a dusty ghost emerging from the structure.
Frame calibration and mosaic assembly in Astro Pixel Processor and image processing in Photoshop.
Exposure times: Ha-3 hours per panel, RGB- 30 minutes per panel
An HaRGB mouse over color version which also shows reflection nebula NGC6914 can be seen at http://helixgate.net/ldn899-2.html

The Cosmic Reef in SHO

Copyright: Bogdan Borz

NGC 2020 and NGC 2014 are located in Dorado, the Large Magellanic Cloud. Both nebulae are shaped by powerful stellar winds. NGC 2020 is the blue circular nebula and the neighbour, displaying warm colors is NGC 2014 in the upper left part of the picture. They are of course only visible from the Southern Hemisphere. Together they are named the "Cosmic Reef".

HD 269748 is a Wolf-Rayet star (Brey )48, located in the center of the NGC 2020 nebula, explaining the the shape of the nebula and the ionized Oxygen that gives its color.

The acquistions were made at Chilescope and the composition is in the Hubble palette.

Location: Rio Hurtado, Chile
Dates: October 2, 5, 6 2021
Exposure: 8h 20'
