Hi All,

Here is a curiosity from last night. Its a 3 satellite pass through Orion during a 12 second exposure (might have been 6 sec). During the same run I captured another satillite (single) and I saw another pass somewhat to the right visually. For several years I'v been seeing these events this time of year in Orion. Later in the season they become much less frequent. But now you can expect at least one every five or ten minutes. I've never seen one anywhere but in Orion.
C8, Mallincam HC, .3fr, AverTV cardbus. As usual, the live view was better. The image is totally untouched.

Bill

Bill,

Here is a single, unprocessed 28 second frame of the Orion and Running Man Nebulae taken with an Orion ED80 set on an Orion AstroView EQ mount. There are 3 of the geosynchronous satellites visible in between the two nebulae. Using a focal reducer I was able to achieve a 1.1 degree field of view.

Nice shot, Jack, and it reminds me to look forward to my 102ED when I get to see those nice wide views. Roland

Trifid nebula from last summer. No processing. C8, MCH, 0.3fr. Color could stand a little tweaking. Imaging was in parallel with observing set up on TV in which color was much better. I usually concentrate on visual observing and don't worry as much about capture details which I can adjust later.

Brad,

Really nice look at the core region. Are they 2 second exposures? When I try to capture the full extent of M42 the core just gets overwhelmed. So for looking at what is going on, I settle for separate images. You can do neat tricks to combine short and long exposures, but I would rather not spend the time.

Here is a 12 second single frame unprocessed image of the lagoon nebulae. This is one that I always stare at for a while. C8, .3 fr, avermedia TV cardbus.
The live display always looks better than the simgle frame captures.

I used the AP 140 with the Mallincam and FR. 14sec. I adjust the camera setting (AGC) and change the gamma some, to keep the core from blooming.

We've seen an assortment of bright objects. Here is a less prominent, but really neat object, NGC 891.
C8, MHC, .3 fr, single frame, no processing, captured with aver TV cardbus.

And Ngc 253. This usually shows up with a faint reddish hue.

And NGC 4038/39. There seems to be an endless supply of these exoctic objects.

Oops.
The four preceeding images are single frame untouched 12 sec exposures.

Here's a few shots taken with a 30" F/4.5 and a MallinCam Color Hyper with MFR-3 Focal reducer and 15mm spacer. They all looked better on the monitor than what I captured on my laptop with a TV card. I realy need to figure out a better way to capture images. This is all pretty new to me.

M-57 14 sec.

Here M-27 I think this one was 7 sec. ( need to keep better track of my settings )
