Mi nombre es Nébula. Adivinas por qué?

My name is Nebula. Guess why?

I wanted to release this a while ago (before the Sinistre eyes), but i changed them a lot, to a point where they barely look like the first editions...

M42 The Orion Nebula

Since we're currently getting buried in snow and there's no clear skies in sight, I decided to "practice" on M42. I used 6 panels from my latest hyperstar mosaic as luminance.

I rarely do post-processing on my nature shots because I tend to let these shots speak for themselves. However, I have to do this one because my camera and lenses could not re-produce the scene that I witnessed.


It was an awesome feeling when you stood under the big oak trees, with the sunlight hit directly on these beautiful leaves, and your feet were covered by the fresh fallen leaves. I brought all of my lenses with me that day, and while they could all capture the color very well, but they could not re-produce the depth I saw, almost like looking toward the center to the universe.

The Tarantula Nebula, also known as 30 Doradus, is more than a thousand light-years in diameter, a giant star forming region within nearby satellite galaxy the Large Magellanic Cloud. About 180 thousand light-years away, it's the largest, most violent star forming region known in the whole Local Group of galaxies. The cosmic arachnid sprawls across this spectacular view, composed with narrowband filter data centered on emission from ionized hydrogen atoms. Within the Tarantula (NGC 2070), intense radiation, stellar winds and supernova shocks from the central young cluster of massive stars, cataloged as R136, energize the nebular glow and shape the spidery filaments. Around the Tarantula are other star forming regions with young star clusters, filaments, and blown-out bubble-shaped clouds. In fact, the frame includes the site of the closest supernova in modern times, SN 1987A, left of center. The rich field of view spans about 1 degree or 2 full moons, in the southern constellation Dorado. But were the Tarantula Nebula closer, say 1,500 light-years distant like the local star forming Orion Nebula, it would take up half the sky. via NASA

This new image shows the dramatic shape and colour of the Ring Nebula, otherwise known as Messier 57. From Earth’s perspective, the nebula looks like a simple elliptical shape with a shaggy boundary. However, new observations combining existing ground-based data with new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope data show that the nebula is shaped like a distorted doughnut. This doughnut has a rugby-ball-shaped region of lower-density material slotted into in its central “gap”, stretching towards and away from us.

The Carina Nebula is a large diffuse nebula visible mostly from the Southern Hemisphere.


As one of the largest and brightest nebulae close to Earth it's also one of the easier ones to photograph.

'Nebula' On Black

I found an interesting place.... tho now I can't remember the name of it... but its a little sci-fi.... a little steampunk...nicely built... If anyone recognizes this place let me know... :)


That is the place.... the SLRL should bring you to a big old tree and all around you should bee gears, platforms, etc... Have Fun!

More info, images and technical details, please have a look in my blog:


This two panel mosaic image is originally shot this Autumn between 27 and 29.10. I haven't publish it before, since I have had so much material to share. The new imaging system gives me a nice field of view, with a high resolution.

63x63 arc minutes at a scale of 0,95 arc seconds/pixel. That's over a square degree of sky.

The tide was pretty far in so not much to work with, the sun was breaking through the fog and lighting up the ocean nicely though!

Botanischer Nebel


Während ich über einen Titel für dieses Bild nachdachte, kam mir ein planetarischer Nebel in den Sinn. Tatsächlich handelt es sich aber nur um eine Pflanzenaufnahme mit geringer Schärfentiefe...

Diese Bearbeitung habe ich mir mal gegönnt, um das "Loch in meiner Seele zu füllen"... :)


While thinking about the picture's title, planetary nebula came to my mind. In fact, I just captured a plant making use of a shallow depth of field...

I allowed myself the processing of this image to "fill the hole in my soul"... :)


Abba - Hole In Your Soul


Ah-haa (ah-haa, ah-haa)

You paint your world and use all colours

Ah-haa (ah-haa)

And then you find it all comes out too bright

You know it's only a lie

Ah-haa (ah-haa, ah-haa)

The songs you sing are too romantic

Ah-haa (ah-haa)

And when you want the truth

They only spit in your eye

Oh yeah, they're only telling you lies

Oh yeah, there's gotta be rock'n roll

To fill the hole in your soul


The soaring tower is 9.5 light-years or about 57 trillion miles high, about twice the distance from our Sun to the next nearest star.


Stars in the Eagle Nebula are born in clouds of cold hydrogen gas that reside in chaotic neighborhoods, where energy from young stars sculpts fantasy-like landscapes in the gas. The tower may be a giant incubator for those newborn stars. A torrent of ultraviolet light from a band of massive, hot, young stars [off the top of the image] is eroding the pillar.


The starlight also is responsible for illuminating the tower's rough surface. Ghostly streamers of gas can be seen boiling off this surface, creating the haze around the structure and highlighting its three-dimensional shape. The column is silhouetted against the background glow of more distant gas.



This is not this object's official name. It's designation is SL 17 and it's a dark nebula in the constellation of Scorpius near to Gum55 and The Dark Tower. After the first deep image of it by Paul Haese, a New Zealand astroimager Rolf Olsen noticed that it bears a striking resemblance to some depictions of the monster wolf in Norse mythology - Fenrir

This image shows an emission nebula containing an incredible amount of dust. At the centre, the Key Hole Nebula can be seen. The Keyhole is roughly 9000 light years away and can be seen with a small telescope.


This object was imaged on the nights of the 3rd and 4th of March 2015 from the suburbs of Melbourne. Australia. Conditions were a little below average, temperature 15 C, windows up to 5 meter per second winds. Imaging had to be cut a little short just before midnight as the clouds rolled in. The scheduled full moon was on the following night the 5th of March. This may have resulted in a little lost contrast.


I managed 4 X 1000, 6 X 1200, and a single 1500 second sub, all in Ha. Total time - 3.5 hours.


Seeing was a little below average on both nights, and gusty.

I didn't realize I have captured both the moonset and nebula in one frame when I was in Death Valley until I opened this particular image in Lightroom today. I had to do some clarity enhancement in the sky to bring out the nebula from the light pollution. I am quite happy about the result even though the nebula is a little fainted.

The Flaming Star Nebula is both an emission and a reflection nebula. The reflection part of this nebula (blue in this image) surrounds the hot blue star AE Aurigae – or “Flaming Star”. This beautiful area of nebulosity is found in the northern constellation Auriga. Its distance from earth is estimated to be around 1500 light years.

The Orion Nebula is an enormous cloud of gas and dust, one of many in our Milky Way galaxy. It lies roughly 1,300 light-years from Earth.


At some 30 to 40 light-years in diameter, this great big nebulous cocoon is giving birth to perhaps a thousand stars.


The four brightest stars in the Orion Nebula can be seen through amateur astronomers’ telescopes and are affectionately known as The Trapezium. The light of the young, hot Trapezium stars illuminate the Orion Nebula. These stars are only a million or so years old – mere babes in the lifetime of a star.

I've always enjoyed images from space, can't really afford an astro photography rig so I thought I would make my own nebula, three images taken in my kitchen with a small fish tank, water and paint, the 'stars' are air bubbles stuck to the front of the tank, a little play in lightroom then into CS5, layers were blended and a few adjustments, back into lightroom and a little work with curves, contrast and clarity, two flash guns used at 3o/c and 9 o/c and at 12o/c for the last image, not the hubble but I like it:blush:
