NGC 2683

NGC 2683

The UFO galaxy. An almost edge on spiral galaxy 20 million light years distant in Lynx constellation. An amazing number of small distant galaxies in the back round. Clusters at lower left and upper right, also several PGC galaxies. Imaged using 8 inch RC telescope at f/8 unguided using MyT mount, QSI 683 camera. Exposure times 240 second subframes Luminance channel is 3 hours RGB channels is 2 hours each.

M 81

Messier 81

M 81 what is there to say big, bright about 12 million light years away in Ursa Major. Several obvious Ha lines run through the spiral arms, several big dark dust lanes. Holmberg IX is a dwarf irregular galaxy and a satellite galaxy of M81. Holmberg IX is the bluish irregular at lower image. Harder to see but present on lower left is some IFN (dust illuminated by our galaxies light) Taken using an 8 inch RC telescope unguided at f/8 (1600 mm) using MyT mount and a QSI 683 mono CCD. Exposure times 7 hours on Luminance, 2 hrs each RGB channel and 6 hours on HA

NGC 1954

NGC 1954 a spiral barred galaxy in Lepus about 33 million light years distant. Many distant galaxies in the image, a large cluster of distant fuzzies in lower left of image. Taken with RC8 telescope @f/8 unguided using MyT mount, QSI 683 mono ccd. Exposure times are 240 sec subs LRGB 4/2/2/2 hours respectively.

NGC 869

NGC 869

Half of the double cluster, an open cluster in Perseus. Visible to the naked eye on a dark night (in a dark non light polluted sky) It was a full moon and couldn’t capture the galaxies I’m working on so…

NGC 691

Several galaxies in the image 2 largest are NGC691 bottom right and middle bottom is IC 167. I cannot seem to find information on the object near middle of the image appears to be a jet. Have seen object in many images just no information. Imaged using 8 inch RC telescope unguided, MyT mount, QSI 683 mono CCD. Exposure times LUM 3 hrs, RGB 2 hours each.

IC 1795

IC1795 in LRGB
IC 1795 in SHO palette

1795 widely known as the fish head nebula is a bright emission nebula of about 70 light-years across with glowing gas and dark lanes of obscuring dust, located just over 6,000 light-years away from Earth in the northern constellation of Cassiopeia.

Natural colors shown in image 1, Image 2 is done mapping Sulfur to red, Hydrogen to green and Oxygen to blue. Taken using 8 inch RC telescope unguided MyT mount QSI 683 mono CCD

Flame nebula

The flame nebula NGC 2024, an emission nebula in Orion constellation. Imaged using 8 inch RC telescope unguided at f/8 (1600 mm) using QSI 683 mono CCD, MyT mount. Exposure times 5 hours Ha, 5 hours Lum 2 hours RGB

NGC 7479

NGC 7479 is a barred spiral galaxy about 105 million light-years away in the constellation Pegasus. Imaged using 8 inch RC telescope unguided at 1600 mm f/8, QSI 683 mono CCD, MyT mount. Exposure times were 8 hours Lum 2 hours each RGB 240 second sub frames.

NGC 90

NGC 90 is an interacting spiral galaxy estimated to be about 300 million light-years away in the constellation of Andromeda. Lots of small faint galaxies in the background. Background considering subject is 300 million light years distant.. Fairly happy with result some details in the spiral arms. Imaged using RC8 telescope unguided at f/8 QSI 683 camera MyT mount
