If you follow the Tele Vue re-post (#RPTVO) hashtag on Instagram you’ll find many stunning images made with Tele Vue gear. That’s how we found Jun Luo (aka: xchaos360) and his Tele Vue-NP127is images. He’s relatively new to astrophotography, but has produced some very nice images from his driveway in Tampa, Florida. From the wisps and folds in the Orion nebula, to the jewels of the M13 globular, and the heart of the Rosette nebula, we take a look Luo's images in this week's blog.

This wide field Jellyfish Nebula (IC 443) image (right) includes the IC 444 nebula (left) that appears to “holds back” the jellyfish by a tenuous connection. Located in the constellation Gemini (the Twins), the star Eta Geminorum (Propus) to the right of the Jellyfish and represents a star in the foot of Castor.
