On Monday early dawn I observed and captured the rising crescent Moon from Guckler lookout tower at Hármashatár-hegy (HHH). Look at the dance of the moonshine during the 12-minute-long exposure caused by the turbulent air.

NGC 6814 by William Ostling, on Flickr

A full write up is available to view here: https://theastroenthusiast.com/ngc-6814-from-hubble/

Together with irregular galaxies, spiral galaxies make up approximately 60 percent of the galaxies in the local universe. However, despite their prevalence, each spiral galaxy is unique — like snowflakes, no two are alike. This is demonstrated by the striking face-on spiral galaxy NGC 6814, whose luminous nucleus and spectacular sweeping arms, rippled with an intricate pattern of dark dust, are captured in this NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image.

NGC 6814 has an extremely bright nucleus, a telltale sign that the galaxy is a Seyfert galaxy. These galaxies have very active centers that can emit strong bursts of radiation. The luminous heart of NGC 6814 is a highly variable source of X-ray radiation, causing scientists to suspect that it hosts a supermassive black hole with a mass about 18 million times that of the sun.

M63 in H-alpha and continuum light

M63 is a spiral galaxy in constellation Canes Venatici.

The image is calculated with and without H-alpha information. By toggling between the two variants the correlation between HII gas clouds and bluish regions (containing young stars and probably also OIII gas) can be visualized.

Cygnus Loop

This supernova remnant is what a star hopes for when it wants to die pretty.

Shot on September 26 from my rural backyard in Hartford, Alabama, USA. Taken with the Losmandy GM811G Equatorial Mount, William Optics GT81 Telescope, and a ZWO ASI2600MC Cooled Color Camera.

NGC 6888, Crescent Nebula.

Copyrights: James M. Wainwright, Orange County, California.

This image was captured from my backyard in Orange County, CA, in a bortle class 8 sky. I captured a total of 7 hours and 30 minutes of data between July 19 and August 15, 2020, and finished processing the image today (October 9, 2021).

I used a Skywatcher EQ6-R Pro equatorial mount, my Explore Scientific ES80 FCD-100 Triplet Refractor, and my ZWO ASI1600MM Pro CMOS camera with Ha and Oiii filters. I processed the image in PixInsight.

Fornax Dwarf Galaxy with some of the globular clusters that go with it. I wanted to capture something I haven't seen anyone else capture, so this is what I went for since I had plenty of credits to spend on it. Full details including acquisition and processing along with the full size image can be found here on my astrobin Image

NEBULA IN THE DORADO CONSTELLATION AND IN ITS INTERIOR THE GLOBULAR STAR CLUSTER NGC1761

In this image, a poorly photographed region, we find in the most central region, a little to the left, a lighter region, the bean nebula (NGC 1763), already a little more to the right, another nebula with similar characteristics, but smaller dimensions , the NGC 1769 nebula. Below we have another nebula of importance, the NGC 1773 nebula.
Between the two we have a small globular cluster NGC 1776. Now the big target of the image, the globular cluster NGC 1761, which is the big target in this image.

Messier 62 in Ophihuchus

M62 is known for being one of the most irregularly shaped globular clusters in our galaxy. This might be because it is one of the closest globular clusters to the center of our Milky Way suffering from gravitational forces. With a size of 14 arc minutes and a 6.6 visual magnitude this is a very nice visual target for telescopes and a good one for astrophotography even from light polluted locations as my "Bortle 8" home backyard. M62 has an extremely dense core of 150,000 stars that stands out from the crowded star background of Ophiuchus area.
Charles Messier discovered M62 in 1771.

The Ghost of Cassiopeia (Sh2-185) in HSO

Image acquisition & processing by Linda Thomas-Fowler
equipment owned by John Kasianowicz

This is 38 hours of HSO data roughly even split across the filters. I tried to process this thematically to try to make the image make the name. that drove the choice of palette and the ultimate framing and processing decisions. Ultimately it was determined that Navi is an evil star whose sole reason for existing is to put halos and reflections into imagers data. :)

Data was collected over 3 nights from the 27th of September to the 8th of October 2021 from the outskirts of Vancouver, Canada (Botle 6).

Melote 15

Post by alcarreño » Mon Oct 11, 2021 11:42 am

Last night I incorporated a fourth frequency into the image, specifically Hbeta. What I show below is a crop of an image at 380mm and rotated to give the image another focus.
Lumiance is the result of applying maximums to Halfa, Hbeta, OIII and SII and color the sum of SHO and HaOIIIHbeta.

The weird and wonderful core of Messier 83 by William Ostling, on Flickr

You can find a full write-up here: https://theastroenthusiast.com/m83s-core-from-hubble/

The goal of this image is to display the details of the nucleus without blowing any details out too badly. This is hard to do if you show the whole galaxy so I have cropped it to the central area. The very center of the nucleus itself is also dust-obscured and appears as a small, yellowish orb near the center of the image. Using only the visible light you might guess that the nucleus is the larger, U-shaped bright area just south of the nucleus. The dust has a way of confusing things like that. If you look at only the near-IR dataset, all is clear and the nucleus is easily revealed.

The H-alpha (red sections) were added by continuum subtracting from the w814 filter and then re-adding.

Eridanus Loop - Sh2-245 by Nico Carver (NebulaPhotos.com), on Flickr

The Eridanus Loop is a rarely photographed, very large structure in the night sky. Together with Barnard's Loop, it's part of the Orion-Eridanus Superbubble. I took advantage of some dark skies at the Okie-Tex Star Party to capture it with my Canon Ra, and an 85mm lens. 5 hours integration.

Like Baily's beads
This is the very fine moon I took in the early morning of 20210709. The moon’s age is 28.5 days and the brightness is 1.2%.
I tried to stack 12 extremely thin moon tracks within 55 seconds, and the time interval between each moon was about 5 seconds. The irregular surface of the moon was strengthened, and it seemed as if I saw Baily's beads ! It's just that Baily's beads is in the total solar eclipse, the sun passes through the pothole, so the pothole is bright, but the potholes of this very thin moon are relatively dark!

The Crescent and Soap Bubble with two focal lengths

Another project has ended, this time - the Crescent Nebula with two focal lengths.
This one was a hard, as usually I need only H-Alpha for the larger focal length; For this target I needed both Ha and Oiii for each of the scopes .
