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.

Planetary Nebula IC5148 thumbnail
23-Sep-2018
A glowing shell of ionized gas ejected from a dying star, IC5148 is at the end of its life, shedding its outer layers and contracting from a red giant to a white dwarf.

Mars is Still Hazy thumbnail
14-Aug-2018
Mars is currently at it's closest to Earth since 2003, and appears as a brilliant red star in the sky. Unfortunately it is also suffering from a global dust storm, slowly abating.

Jupiter July 2018 thumbnail
08-Jul-2018
Jupiter is high in the skies just after dusk. I period of good seeing allowed me to capture more detail than I've managed before.

Shapley 1 Planetary Nebula thumbnail
04-Jun-2018
Shapley 1 is a planetary nebula in the southern sky with a magnitude 14 white dwarf at it's center. It is approximately 4900 light years away, and one third of a light year across.

Mars and Pluto Conjunction thumbnail
02-May-2018
For a period of three mostly cloudy nights, the planet Mars and Pluto were within 1.5 degrees of each other.

Planetary Nebula NGC4361 thumbnail
18-Apr-2018
NGC4361 is a planetary nebula with spiral arms similar to a galaxy. The star at the center of the nebula is shedding its outer layers while contracting to form a white dwarf.

Robins Egg Nebula thumbnail
28-Nov-2017
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
28-Oct-2017
Uranus and two of its very dim larger moons, Titania and Oberon.

Saturn and Moons thumbnail
25-Oct-2017
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
11-Aug-2017
After a brief hiatus from astronomy to build a new, larger observatory, I've chosen another difficult target that was surprisingly bright.

On the Shoreline of the Lagoon thumbnail
09-Aug-2016
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
16-Jun-2016
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
29-May-2016
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
10-May-2016
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
