B 22 Taurus Dark Cloud (4′)

The weather is still good 🙂 Again B22 Taurus dark cloud nebula. This time 240s exposure instead of 120s. Much better result than my first image. Details Now I have more than 5 hours lights. Combined image from 2 sessions (46 x 240s + 74 x 120s = 332minutes) Session 2 image (46 x 240s, […]

B 22 Taurus Dark Cloud (2′)

A very special object. NGC2087 surrounded by Barnard 22 interstellar matter. I had no idea what to expect regarding to a single 120s preview image… I like the result but it will be worth to invest more time in it 😉 Details

M45 Pleiades

Since weeks bad weather… but yesterday I had luck 🙂 So, again M45 Pleiades (how wonderful to focus with the Bahtinov mask because of the bright stars…), this time at f/5.6. Therefore no spikes. It looks more realistic to me with the round stars and no spikes… Drizzled 2x and resampled to original resolution. Details

NGC7293 Helix Nebula

Yeah. I got more lights 🙂 I had luck with the weather… it was risky to drive on Gurnigel. I had to wait 1 hour… but then clear sky 🙂 The Helix nebula looks very very similar to M57 regarding shape and colors. Very interesting… 2x drizzled and resized to original resolution. Includes the lights from […]
