Comet C/2021 A1 Leonard taken the 8th of January of 2022 in Alberti, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina.

To capture this comet i went to the Cielos Albertinos Observatory where they have Bortle 2/3 and point my telescope to the South-West at almost 16° of altitude. Anyway it's visible the sodium tail, all the particules that this comet left behind and also some galaxies far away like PGC 132456 at 450 Million lightyears.

This year we doesn't have a comet like this so I like to share it again to remember it.
I hope next one surprise us!

Moonlit Starlink Launch

SpaceX Starlink launch on October 27, 2022 from the Arizona desert. Taken near Camp Verde, AZ shortly after launch. I scrambled to get my camera ready as we pulled over onto the side of the highway to watch the show! You can see the second stage burn and plume in the upper left, crescent moon near the center, and first stage re-entry in the bottom right.

Pacman Nebula

The Pacman Nebula, also known as NGC 281, is ~9500 light years away in the constellation of Cassiopeia. NGC 281 is a bright emission nebula and part of an H II region.

This image was captured, in a Queen Creek (Arizona) Bortle 7 backyard, using a Skywatcher Esprit 150ED telescope. The telescope is mounted on a 10Micron GM2000 HPS II mount. The camera is a ZWO ASI 2600MM Pro using an Antlia SII, OIII, and HA 3nm filters. It was captured over 4 nights (2022-11-04 to 2022-11-07). The images were stacked/processed in Pixinsight and fine-tuning done in Photoshop.

Full image and capture details available here.

Full Image Animations: https://www.kentbiggs.com/images/planetaries/M1-3.htm

It is rare and exciting to see any changes in astronomical objects outside of our solar system. However, incredibly, this time lapse animation is two images taken exactly 13 years apart. Clearly visible is the expansion of the red glowing filaments of ionized helium and hydrogen, as well as the swirling blue-white cloudy material illuminated by synchrotron radiation. Also note the proper motion movement of the yellow-orange star in the lower left corner of the image. Many more details including animations and annotations available here

Revealing the Hidden Beauty around the Double Cluster

The Double Cluster in Perseus is a popular target among amateur astrophotographers, it is an easy object to capture, and it is most of the time imaged in RGB.

I stumbled upon wide field pictures of the area and saw that there was a lot of HA signal behind and all around the clusters. I decided to give it a go with a focal length of 655mm, which hasn’t been done much apparently.

I spent one night capturing R, G, and B signal. Then I spent 3 extra nights (20 hours) imaging but this time with a hydrogen alpha filter. Even with 20 hours of exposure in HA, itt was difficult to bring out the gas during processing because it is still relatively faint in this area of the sky. This is what I was able to achieve. You can see the beautiful Double Cluster, and an incredible amount of HA gas behind and around.

Hi all,

I am following Mars during the last couple of months as it is approaching the Earth for its opposition, in order to create a full map of the planet.

During the last days I was impressed by the speed of daily changes in its North Polar Hood, as well the appearance of clouds in the southern hemisphere, so I tried to represent them in a short animation that follows:

Soul Nebula

Copyright: Mark Hoffman, Instagram: @Mark_Hoffman_Photography

https://www.flickr.com/photos/194543639@N07/
https://www.instagram.com/mark_hoffman_photography/

"The Soul Nebula is about 100 light years across and has an estimated age of 1 million years. It contains several small open star clusters. IC 1848 is embedded in the body of the nebula, while the clusters CR 34, 632 and 634 can be seen in the head. Small emission nebulae IC 1871, 670 and 669 are located just next to the Soul Nebula. The Soul Nebula is being carved out by the stellar winds from the stars embedded within it, a process that leaves behind large pillars of material pointing inwards. These pillars are very dense and have stars forming at their tips. Each pillar spans about 10 light years."

Sharpless 2 16 (aka Gum 70) & Collinder 347

Sharpless 2 16 is located in the constellation of Sagittarius in its border limits close to Scorpius and Ophiuchus.

Found little information about this objet so I quote the Galaxy Map data (*)
Sh 2-16 is part of the Sh 2-15 to Sh 2-20 complex of HII regions located in the Sgr OB5 association in the Sagittarius arm. It appears to be ionised by the O9.5 V star TYC 6840-271-1

M33 - The Triangulum Galaxy

The Triangulum Galaxy captured over 6 nights from the Bortle 8/9 skies of downtown Vancouver, Canada. I wanted to know if it was even possible, and it actually turned out way better than I expected! The light from this neighbouring galaxy travelled almost 3 million years to get here, so it was only right that I treated it to 1895 exposures in my best attempt to do its beauty justice.
