star in the center is Antares.
Canon 7D Mark II, 100mm f2.8, 34 one minute exposures
stacked in Deep Sky
Stacker. Tracked with iOptron SkyTracker.
The Great Orion Nebula. Full frame, 500mm, single two minute exposure.
Horsehead Nebula and the Flame Nebula. 500mm, single two minute exposure.
Bubble Nebula and M52 (a star cluster). 500mm, f4.5, ISO 800, about an hour of
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
Lagoon and Trifid Nebulas, located in the constellation Sagittarius.
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
Stacker, processed in Images Plus and Photoshop, tracked with AstroTrac.
Fifty-five 60 second exposures, f3.5 @ 800 ISO, Canon 7D M II (H-alpha mod),
200mm f2.8 lens. Tracked with an AstroTrac. Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker and
processed in Images Plus and Photoshop.
Barnard's Loop, a large nebula in Orion, this also includes the Orion Nebula and
the Horsehead Nebula.
Twenty-five one minute exposures, stacked in Deep Sky Stacker, Canon 7D Mark II,
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. This planetary nebula is only visible in the far south at this latitude
(43 N). I wasn't sure if it was going photograph very well being so low (about
20 degrees) on the
horizon, but it came out pretty good. Fifty-one one minute exposures, ISO 800,
500 mm, f4, tracked with AstroTrac. Processed in Images Plus, stacked in Deep Sky
Stacker, final processing in Photoshop. This is nearly full frame, slight
cropping along the edges.
North America Nebula
The Owl Nebula (M 97) and the Surfboard Galaxy (M 108), in Ursa Major, near the
The Owl Nebula is a planetary nebula.
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
over processed to bring out the faint nebula. The bright star in the upper left
is Gienah, in the constellation Cygnus.
