Nebulas

Rho Ophiuchus Nebula Complex and interstellar dust clouds. Located in the constellation Scorpius.
The orange star in the center is Antares. Canon 7D Mark II, Zeiss Sonar 135mm f2.


The Great Orion Nebula. 500mm.

Horsehead Nebula and the Flame Nebula. 500mm.

Bubble Nebula and M52 (a star cluster). 500mm, f4.5, ISO 800, about an hour of integration.

Thor's Helmet, 500mm

Pacman Nebula, NGC 281. 29 one minute exposures at 500mm, f4, ISO 800.
Tracked with an Astrotrac, camera H-alpha modded Canon 7D MII.
I had over 60 subs but the wind ruined half of them. It turned out OK despite that.

Iris Nebula, 500mm

Cone Nebula, Hubble's Variable Nebula. 500mm

Lagoon and Trifid Nebulas, located in the constellation Sagittarius. 500mm

The Heart and Soul Nebulas and the Double Cluster. Zeiss 135mm f2 Sonnar, Canon 7D M II
(H-alpha modified), 800 ISO at f2.8, 66 one minute exposures, stacked in Deep Sky
Stacker, processed in Images Plus and Photoshop, tracked with AstroTrac.


California Nebula.
Fifty-five 60 second exposures, f3.5 @ 800 ISO, Canon 7D M II (H-alpha mod), Canon
200mm f2.8 lens. Tracked with an AstroTrac. Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker and
 processed in Images Plus and Photoshop.


Widefield of the Orion constellation, showing Barnard's Loop, Orion Nebula,
Horsehead Nebula, Witchhead Nebula, and the Lambda Orionis Ring (Sh2-264). 35mm.

Horsehead Nebula and a portion of Barnard's Loop. 135mm.

M78, 500mm

Rosette Nebula, 500mm

Witchhead Nebula, 135mm.

Eagle Nebula. The nebula is about 7000 light years from Earth.
The Pillars of Creation can be seen in the core.
The pillars alone are several light years in length.

The Dumbell Nebula, a planetary nebula. 700mm, tracked with an AstroTrac.

The Helix Nebula. 500mm

Skull Nebula, 700mm

North America Nebula, 135mm

The Owl Nebula (M 97) and the Surfboard Galaxy (M 108), in Ursa Major, near the star Merak.
The Owl Nebula is a planetary nebula.

Ring Nebula, 700mm

The Veil Nebula and Filamentary Nebula, the remnants of a supernova. I really need a camera modified to capture hydrogen-alpha light, that would show a lot more red filaments. As it is, I had a difficult time even getting this, and it is
over processed to bring out the faint nebula. The bright star in the upper left is Gienah, in the constellation Cygnus.

Spaghetti Nebula, 135mm

Jellyfish Nebula, 500mm
