Horsehead Nebula in Hydrogen Alpha thumbnail
11-Nov-2015
I decided to take advantage of the only clear night for over a week to play with some new toys: an Astronomik 6nm Hα filter, and a Starlight Xpress adaptive optics unit. After learning how to calibrate and use the AO, I settled on the Horsehead Nebula as my target.

Animation of NGC 300 Processing Stages thumbnail

Often I like to see how an image is processed from start to finished. Presented in this animation are the main processing steps in sequence from my image of NGC 300

NGC 300 thumbnail

NGC 300 is a spiral galaxy in the constellation Sculptor. It is one of the closest galaxies to the Local Group at 6 million light years distance.

Test Shot of the Sculptor Galaxy thumbnail
10-Oct-2015
I was playing around with my camera binning modes in preparation for a dark sky trip next weekend, and ended up with this. Even though it's just a test shot, I think it turned out pretty well. New lesson learned; don't overexpose the stars.

Helix Nebula NGC7293 thumbnail

The Helix Nebula, also known as The Helix, NGC 7293, is a large planetary nebula located in the constellation Aquarius, 695 light years away.

Test Shot of the Orion Nebula thumbnail
19-Sep-2015
My original target was the Helix Nebula, but after spending most of Saturday night trying to work out how to use off axis guiding, I gave up and noticed Orion was rising. A nice bright target to use the drift aligned mount on.

False Colour Moon thumbnail

A near full moon presented in false colour.

Crescent Moon thumbnail
25-Aug-2015
Just a crescent moon

Saturn in Colour thumbnail
19-Aug-2015
I thought I'd give eyepiece projection a try since my previous attempts at capturing Saturn were a dismal failure.

Barnard 72 - Snake Nebula thumbnail
14-Aug-2015
I have only a few nights experience with astrophography, so while I wait for my new camera, I'm using my wife's full frame DSLR. Since it's not so sensitive to emission nebula, I thought I'd try a dark nebula.

Swan Nebula thumbnail

A DSLR image of the swan nebula when I was first learning how to do astrophotography
