Robins Egg Nebula thumbnail
NGC 1360 is known as the Robin's Egg Nebula, primarily due to its blue hue from strong oxygen-III emissions. It is a diffuse planetary nebula 1794 light years away. Presented is a narrowband image with H-alpha emissions mapped to red, and OIII emissions mapped to both green and blue (HOO palette).

Uranus and Moons thumbnail
Uranus and two of its very dim larger moons, Titania and Oberon.

Saturn and Moons thumbnail
Saturn and some of its many moons in infrared, red, green, and blue filters, taken with a new ZWO ASI 290MM high speed planetary camera.

Saturn Nebula thumbnail
After a brief hiatus from astronomy to build a new, larger observatory, I've chosen another difficult target that was surprisingly bright.

Jupiter thumbnail
Jupiter is back in the evening skies. This is my first time playing with a new high speed astronomy camera, the ZWO ADI1600MC.

On the Shoreline of the Lagoon thumbnail
Next to the Lagoon Nebula, there lies the often overlooked collection of absorption, reflection and emission nebulae: NGC 6559, IC 1274, IC 1275, IC 4684, IC 4685, Barnard 303, LDN 227, LDN 213, and planetary nebula PN M 1-41.

Astronomy as Art - The Many Faces of Narrowband thumbnail
Narrowband images are rarely presented as true color light. When imaging in narrowband, colors are assigned to each channel based on the specific emission lines captured. One of the most common choices is the SHO Hubble Pallet, but the choices for mixing colors are endless. Here are 9 examples of how an image of a planetary nebula may be colored.

Mars Is Difficult thumbnail
Although Mars is at it's biggest and brightest this week, it's so small, it's a difficult subject to get any detail out of.

First Narrowband, Difficult Subject: Planetary Nebula Sh2-313 thumbnail
For my first foray into narrowband imaging, I have chosen a very dim & difficult target: planetary nebula Sh2-313, also known as Abell 35 and PK 303+40.1

Jupiter and Moons thumbnail
Jupiter and its moons, Ganemede, Europa & Io.

False Colour Moon thumbnail
A near full moon presented in false colour.

Crescent Moon thumbnail
Just a crescent moon

Saturn in Colour thumbnail
I thought I'd give eyepiece projection a try since my previous attempts at capturing Saturn were a dismal failure.
