An image of N55 and more nebulae of the LMC has been uploaded

Hi all,

After about two years, I have recovered and processed this image of a fragment of the LMC. The image shows several nebulae, two supernova remnants as well as an uncatalogued nebula that may be just a tiny part of an emission nebula or a mass ejection nebula from the star in its center. You can find more info and the image at:

LMC nebulae around N55

An image of Messier 13 has been uploaded

Hi all,

An image of the globular cluster Messier 13 has been uploaded. This great cluster has a peculiar star (Barnard 29, a B2-spectral type star) that was once thought it had been “captured” while passing by. This is not the case, this hot, blue star originated inside M13. The image as well as more info on it and the cluster can be found at:

Messier 13. NGC 6205. The Great Hercules Cluster

Enjoy,

An image of Abell 21, a planetary nebula, has been uploaded

Hi all,

An image of Abell 21 has been uploaded. It is a quite deep image, showing not only the classic crescent shaped bright hemisphere, but also the faint one, so that this nebula can be considered “spherical” rather than crescent-shaped.You can find it as well as some more info at:

Abell 21. Medusa Nebula

An image of NGC 1291, a “transitional” galaxy, has been uploaded

Hi all,

An image of a “transitional” spiral galaxy, NGC 1291, has been uploaded. This spiral galaxy has a structure that has been considered an intermediate step between the young, bluish and with definite arms and the elliptical galaxies. You can find the image and some more info at:

NGC 1291.
