This is my attempt at imaging the supernova in M82 on the 23rd January 2014. The image was taken through a Televue 102 on a Celestron CGEM mount guided via a Lodestar guider through a separate refractor. 1.25-inch Baader filters were used in an Atik filter wheel. The main camera was an Atik 314L+ controlled through MaximDL. Some images lost to satellites and planes, so 20 mins green, 15 mins blue, 35 mins Luminance and 50 mins hydrogen alpha 35nm. Calibrated and stacked in MaximDL. Final processing done in Photoshop CS6.
This is my first attempt at the Horsehead Nebula in Orion on the 19/1/2014. 15 x 5 minute exposures in Luminance only filter. Telescope was 102mm Televue refractor using an Atik 314L camera cooled to -20C. Guided by a Lodestar guider. Seeing very steady with a hint of mist forming - very icy on the ground.

Messier 33 - Triangulum Galaxy

The Triangulum Galaxy is a spiral galaxy approximately 3 million light years from Earth in the constellation Triangulum. The Triangulum Galaxy is the third-largest member of our Local Group of galaxies, which includes the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy and about 44 other smaller galaxies. It is one of the most distant permanent objects that can be viewed with the naked eye.

NGC7023 - The Iris Nebula

The Iris Nebula (also known as Caldwell 4) is a bright reflection nebula in the constellation Cepheus. NGC 7023 is actually the cluster within the nebula, with the nebula lit by a magnitude +7 star (SAO 19158) within the cluster. The nubula lies 1,300 light-years away and is approximately six light-years across.
