A new image! NGC 55-Caldwell 72

Hi all,

 

A new image has been uploaded! This time, it is a galaxy. As medium-sized barred Magellanic spiral galaxy, located at only 7 Million light-years. This is why, even being not a large galaxy, we can see a lot of detail in it and many individual clusters and even stars. It is seen edge-on, and despite having many red Hydrogen clouds, the rate of star formation is low.

You can find it at:

NGC 55. Caldwell 72

Enjoy!

A new image has been posted! (M20)

Hi all!

 

A new image has been uploaded! This time, it concerns M20, the Trifid Nebula. There was already another image of M20 in the web site, but this one has a couple of characteristics that might improve the previous one. Firstly, it is mainly a narrowband image (compared to the usual LRGB images of this object), and secondly, in order to get a more “real-natural” image, broadband Blue images have been blended with the OIII frames, in an attempt to capture all blue nebular wisps. The narrowband filters allow for a better contrast/resolution. Judge for yourselves:

M 27 reprocessed. A definitive version

Hi all,

 

A reprocessed version of M 27 (taken with the astounding Schulman Telescope, 32″) has been uploaded. This version has been reprocessed giving a higher importance to the RGB and a bit (just a bit…) less to the H alpha. The same subframes have been used and it is only a very different way of interpreting the image. I think it is worth to give a look at it:

NGC 3576 uploaded!

Hi all,

 

A wonderful nebula has been uploaded. NGC 3576 is an emission nebula in the constellation Carina. This image has been taken in narrowband (Ha, OIII and SII), by my telescope partner Don Goldman, whom I am thankful for allowing me to use and process this image. The processing has been, as usual, trying to reproduce the original visible spectrum of this nebula. More about it here:

Enjoy,

Josep
