North American Nebula... 2 stacked 5 min exposures taken with a Canon 60 Da and a StellarVue 70mm telescope with field flattener and reducer. Guided with an Orion SSAG.







M27   The Dumbbell Nebula taken with a Canon 60Da DSLR and an AstroTech 6" RC scope on a Celestron AVX mount.  Three 5 minute images stacked.  M27 is a planetary nebula.  Star at the center has puffed off the outer layers of ionized gases.  This is located in the Milky Way.  This is the last image I took with this scope before I donated it to Moravian College.  They got a good imaging scope.





M42   The Orion Nebula

Possibly the most photographed nebula of all.



M1   The Crab Nebula

The remnants of a supernova explosion.

Tonight's SuperMoon taken with a StellarVue SVQ 100 mm quad and a Canon 60Da.




My favorite target, M27 will soon be leaving my area till spring so I thought I would grab a one 5 min guided image taken through a StellarVue 130 mm Refractor with .8x reducer/field flattener making the system an 5.6 and guided by an Orion Star Shoot Autoguider. Camera was a Canon 60 Da.  Processing was done through PhotoShop C.C.
