SH2-129 is a larger emission nebula complex in Cepheus that is dominated by H-alpha emissions. Ha makes the red background of this image. In 2011 a very faint OIII emission nebula structure was found by Nicolas Outters. OU4 is resembles to a squid which lead to the name of the nebula.

 

The image is a combination of image data shot with my 80/480 mm refractor with 0.79 x reducer for the field (=380 mm). The Squid data come from the 130/910 mm refractor which I originally had used to image only OU4.

Sh2-112 is a visibly emitting nebula in the constellation of Cygnus.

 

It is located in the northern part of the constellation, about 1.5 ° to WNW of the brilliant star Deneb.

 

It is a circular H II region of apparent size of about 15', crossed by a dark band on its western side oriented in a north-south direction. It is believed that the star responsible for its excitation is BD+45 3216; estimates of the distance of this star provide a value of 1740 parsec (about 5670 light years), which would place so Sh2-112 in a region of the Orion Arm particularly rich and physically very close to the great nebulous system of Cygnus X.

NGC 7635, also known as the Bubble Nebula, Sharpless 162, or Caldwell 11, is an H II region emission nebula in the constellation Cassiopeia. It lies close to the direction of the open cluster Messier 52. The "bubble" is created by the stellar wind from a massive hot, 8.7 magnitude young central star, SAO 20575 (BD+60°2522).[7] The nebula is near a giant molecular cloud which contains the expansion of the bubble nebula while itself being excited by the hot central star, causing it to glow. It was discovered in 1787 by William Herschel.[5] The star BD+60°2522 is thought to have a mass of about 44 M☉.

Столбы и струи в туманности Пеликан

 

Что за темные структуры возникают в туманности Пеликан? Похожая на птицу туманность Пеликан видна в созвездии Лебедя. Эта область усеяна только что сформировавшимися звездами, однако она засорена темной пылью.

Пылинки, по размеру похожие на частицы дыма, образуются в холодных атмосферах молодых звезд и рассеиваются звездными ветрами и взрывами. Впечатляющие джеты объектов Хербига-Аро видны выходящими из звезды справа. Они разрушают пылевой столб длиной в световой год, в котором они находятся. Это изображение было раскрашено специальным образом, чтобы выделить свет, излучаемый небольшими количествами ионизованных водорода, кислорода и серы в туманности, которая в основном состоит из водорода и гелия. Туманность Пеликан (IC 5067 и IC 5070) удалена от нас примерно на две тысячи световых лет, ее можно найти с помощью небольшого телескопа к северо-востоку от яркой звезды Денеб.

 

NGC 281, IC 11 or Sh2-184 is a bright emission nebula located in the constellation of Cassiopeia. It is also associated with open cluster IC 1590, several Bok globules and the multiple star, B 1. It lies around 9200 light years from us. Colloquially, NGC 281 is also known as the Pacman Nebula. Imaged over 2 nights the 27th of August and 6th of September. The data from 27th Aug using a QHY294C was used to make a luminance image and combine it with narrowband data captured on the 6th of Sep.

EN- The huge and majestic nebula of La Laguna is home to many young stars and hot gas. It is 100 light years in diameter, is about 5000 light years away and is so large and bright that it can be seen without a telescope in the constellation Sagittarius. Many bright stars of NGC 6530 are seen, an open cluster that formed in the nebula is only a few million years old. The largest nebula, also known as M8 and NGC 6523, is called "Laguna" because of the dust band seen to the left of the center of the open cluster. The bright knot of gas and dust in the center of the nebula is known as the nebula. As the numerous globules show, the formation of stars continues in the lagoon nebula. The image is a recently processed panorama of M8 that covers about eight times the diameter of the Moon.

ES- La nebulosa de La Laguna entre estrellas, polvo y gas

 

La enorme y majestuosa nebulosa de La Laguna es el hogar de muchas estrellas jóvenes y gas caliente. Tiene 100 años luz de diámetro, se encuentra a unos 5000 años luz de distancia y es tan grande y brillante que se puede ver sin telescopio en la constelación de Sagitario. Se ven muchas estrellas brillantes de NGC 6530, un cúmulo abierto que se formó en la nebulosa tiene tan sólo unos millones de años. La nebulosa más grande, conocida también como M8 y NGC 6523, se llama «Laguna» por la banda de polvo que se ve a la izquierda del centro del cúmulo abierto. El nudo brillante de gas y de polvo que hay en el centro de la nebulosa se ​​conoce como la nebulosa. Como lo demuestran los numerosos glóbulos que hay, la formación de estrellas continúa en la nebulosa de la laguna. La imagen es una panorámica recientemente procesada de M8 que cubre unas ocho veces el diámetro de la Luna.

Second iteration this year in terms of inaging this galaxy, with additional data captured for longer exposures this past weekend. It's still not as clear as I'd like it so it maybe needs even more data, or something. I'm changing my scope configuration soon so this will have to do for now.

 

This galaxy looks very similar to how our own Milky Way galaxy would look from the same distance, which is about 2.5 million light years away. Actually, this galaxy is naked-eye visible from darker skies, and if the human eye could detect it completely, it would appear 5-6 moon-lengths in size! Another interesting tidbit is that this galaxy is on a collision course with the Milky Way, expected to “touch” in about 4.5 billion years from now!

Messier 63, meglio conosciuta come Galassia Girasole, è una galassia a spirale visibile nella costellazione dei Cani da Caccia, venne scoperta nel 1779.

La distanza che ci separa da questa galassia è di circa 37 milioni di anni luce e la stessa si allontana da noi alla velocità di 580 km/s..

Il nome proprio girasole è dovuto al grandissimo numero di segmenti di spirali che circondano il nucleo, ben avvolte attorno ad esso e pervase da un gran numero di nubi di polvere interstellare; la massa totale della galassia sarebbe compresa fra le 80 e le 140 miliardi di masse solari, con un diametro di 90000 anni luce, ossia simile a quello della nostra Via Lattea.

The Dumbbell Nebula (Messier 27, M27 or NGC 6853) is a bright planetary nebula in the constellation Vulpecula. It is easily seen in binoculars and wide-field photographs. The central star is an extremely hot blueish subdwarf. The nebula was created by the dying star ejecting a shell of gas into space.

Death star.

 

When an average G-type star like our Sun grows old, it uses up all its hydrogen, begins burning helium and swells up into a red giant. As it uses up its helium it ejects its outer layers, which expand outwards forming what we call a planetary nebula.

 

The life span of the nebula is relatively short - about 10,000 years.

 

Left behind is the star’s core, which becomes a white dwarf star, no longer undergoing nuclear fusion. It just radiates its heat away over billions more years until it cools into a black dwarf.

 

It is believed that the Universe is not yet old enough for black dwarfs to exist.

The Andromeda Galaxy (/ænˈdrɒmᵻdə/), also known as Messier 31, M31, or NGC 224, is a spiral galaxy approximately 780 kiloparsecs (2.5 million light-years) from Earth. It is the nearest major galaxy to the Milky Way and was often referred to as the Great Andromeda Nebula in older texts. It received its name from the area of the sky in which it appears, the constellation of Andromeda, which was named after the mythological princess Andromeda.

Happy with this - first attempt at it as well.

 

Generally, an okay object but if you zoom into its center, you will see the so-called "Pillars of Creation", made famous by (much better than my) images made by Hubble.

 

The Pillars of Creation (Eagle Nebula, or Messier 16) are a stellar nursery, composed of gas and dust slowly eaten away by massive stars. Stars are being born inside the pillars due to the gas compressed into collapse by the powerful winds from the massive star cluster. The pillars are slowly being eroded but continue jutting out into the cleared region. This object lies 7,000 light years from Earth.

Plan is to add a lot more lights to this one before the summer is over.

Clear night on Saturday and no moon (yay) oh neighbour left security light on.

So this was about all i could point at without massive gradient problems.

Currently setting up a new astro rig, will be a few weeks before its up and running, they dont work to well out of the box.

So its being tuned up.....then we have a family holiday so I don't anticipate anything before October now ☹

my first time using the astro tools by noel carboni, they do help indeed but you stil have to rely on your post-processing skills and good image quality.

for myself i can see progress, even if it is in small steps :) i am now looking forward to the winter night sky an more clear nights than this summer...

It was a pretty nice night so I thought I'd try a shot of the Milky Way, It was actually the first time I've seen the Milky Way with just my eyes.
