An image of M8, the Lagoon Nebula, has been uploaded

Hi all,

Messier 8 deserves many pictures and this is what you can find in my web site. This one is the sixth image that I have taken, this time in close collaboration with Christian Sasse. This image is a two-pane mosaic that provides an original resolution of 10800×12300 px. I recommend exploring the core. You can find this image at:

Messier 8. Another view

A reprocessed image of IC 410, the Tadpoles, has been uploaded

Hi all,

Recently, and taking advantage of the new processing tools currently available, I reprocessed this nebula. These new tools allow for an increased detail and the fine structure is better (and more reliably, seen. You can dĀ”find this new version (that has replaced the previous one) at:

IC 410, the Tadpoles Nebula

Enjoy,

An image of WR134 has been uploaded

Hi all,

An image of WR 134, a mass ejection nebula located in the constellation Cygnus. Wolf-Rayet stars are very massive and eject huge amounts of gas (as well as their strong stellar winds carve their surrounding gas clouds). This very deep image shows the whole circular structure of this nebula.

You can find it at:

A new image of NGC 3576, the Statue of Liberty, has been uploaded

Hi all,

Another image today… In this case, it’s NGC 3576, the Statue of Liberty Nebula. This is the fourth image of this nebula that you can find in my web site. In this case, the image was taken in the frame of the joint project with Christian Sasse. The large telescope (24 in) as well as the high resolution camera (103 MPx) allow for a very detailed image. You can find it at:

NGC 3576, the Statue of Liberty II

An image of IC 4628 has been uploaded

Hi all,

An image of the Prawn Nebula, IC 4628 has been uploaded. This is also the second image of this nebula that you can find in this web site. The peculiarity of this image is that the frames taken with the SII filter have been color mapped differently from its natural color, in order to better discern between the different gases that compose the nebula. This image is another result of the ongoing joint project with Christian Sasse. You can find the image and more information at:

IC 4628, the Prawn in Scorpius

Enjoy,
Josep
