A vacation well spent: more then 10 new images
Posted 24 January 2013 - 09:35 AM
During December I had a few days of vacation (I managed to aim it at the moonless nights )
I imaged for 3 nights 13,16-17 from a Southern region in Israel called the NEGEV desert (where the nights are clear and mostly dry in December)
The outcome of this heavenly vacation were about 15 objects.
2 of them I already posted here - The Horsehead and Comet K5.
Another 10 of them I'm proud to present here.
I Tried to frame several interesting objects in the same frame such as:
NGC 663, 654 LDN 1332-1334 - 1337 and VDB
NGC 6946 & NGC 6939
Messier 101 and NGC 5474
Messier 35 & NGC 2158
Messier 81 & 82
And some interesting Nebulae:
LDN 1608 -9-10 in Monoceros
The Northern Trifid - NGC 1579
NGC 6914 in Cygnus
Very hard and rarely imaged Sharpless 278
VDB 9 in Cassiopea
As always comments are welcomed
WHAT A VACATION
Warm and clear nights to you all.

Some great images too... I'm still looking through them.
Save some photons for the rest of us

All those images you took are terrific! Scheduling vacation's with clear skies and some decent weather is not easy to do. You struck it rich, especially with those dso's you imaged. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! what a collection of images. Nice work. My favorite is NGC6914.
You bet, Bill!! I say this one needs to be sent in for an APOD consideration.

These LDN objects in Monoceros - which one corresponds to dusty stuff? Looks worthy of close up imaging. Thanks for sharing!
