  • IC1396 Narrowband

    Object(s): IC1396 (The Elephant's Trunk nebula) Location: My-Spot Observatory (4.1 ZLM) Date: July 9, 10, 13, 16, 17 2010 Scope: Vixen VC200L w/Focal Reducer Mount: Losmandy G-11 Guiding: ST80 OTA with QHY5 Camera: QHY8Pro Filters: Astronomik 12nm Ha, OIII, & SII Exposure: 181 x 120 Sec (RGB), 25 x 900 (SII), 24x90 Sec (Ha), 38x900 Sec (OIII), (27 Hours, 47 Min) Processing & Notes: Nebulosity, Fitswork4 and Stacked in DSS and final processing with PWP 4.0. This proved to be a difficult image to process.

  • NGC 7000 (North America Nebula - Mexico Region)

    Object(s): NGC 7000 (North America Nebula - Mexico Region) Location: My-Spot Observatory (4.1 ZLM) Date: June 26 & 28, 2011 Scope: Vixen VC200L w/Focal Reducer Mount: Losmandy G-11 Guiding: ST80 OTA with QHY5 Camera: QHY9M Filters: Astronomik 12nm Ha, OIII, & SII Exposure: 47 x 300 (SII), 51x300 Sec (Ha), 48x300 Sec (OIII), (12 Hours, 10 Min) Mapped: Sii-Red, Ha-Green, Oiii-Blue (HST Pallet) Processing & Notes: Nebulosity, Fitswork4 and Stacked in DSS and final processing with PWP 5.

  • NGC 6995 (north eastern Veil nebula)

    Object(s): NGC 6995 (north eastern Veil Nebula) Location: My-Spot Observatory (4.1 ZLM) Date: June 29, 2011 Scope: Vixen VC200L w/Focal Reducer Mount: Losmandy G-11 Guiding: ST80 OTA with QHY5 Camera: QHY9M Filters: Astronomik 12nm Ha, OIII, & SII Exposure: 20 x 300 (SII), 27x300 Sec (Ha), 20x300 Sec (OIII), (5 Hours, 35 Min) Mapped: Ha-Red, Sii-Green, Oiii-Blue Processing & Notes: Nebulosity, Fitswork4 and Stacked in DSS and final processing with PS CS2. This was a surprisingly easy image to process. My first truly remotely imaged astrophoto. Scope was at my home observatory in Michigan controlled via the internet from Utah (I know that's backwards). Everything worked flawlessly!
