I tried different combinations of the Ha and SII images to create a blue layer, but none worked very well. So this image is a combination of the Ha as the red and the SII as the green. The stars are colorized using an RGB image. It might have been best to just have gone with a black &amp; white image using the Ha image. http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ic-catalog/p12943-ic63.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ic-catalog/p12943-ic63.html Wed, 19 Nov 2014 19:37:37 -0500 The Sun - 19th.

Typical of large spiral galaxies, M31 is believed to contain on the order of a trillion stars. The galaxy also shows beautiful red HII regions along the spiral arms. At a comparatively close 2.5 million light years, the galaxy has the distinction of being the very farthest object we Earthlings can see with our naked eyes. At magnitude 3.4, the galaxy is easily visible from even modestly light polluted skies. M31 has two dwarf elliptical satellite galaxies that are easily visible in this image. M32 is the small fuzzy patch just above the main galaxy, while M110 is the larger galaxy just below M31.

The mvimento of libration is due to non-perfect synchronization of motion of rotation and revolution of the moon that allows us to see around 9% of the lunar surface (the boundary zone of the hidden face) opposite the Earth, which is invisible when observing the Moon our position on Earth. The libration occurs due to displacement (sway), real or apparent, of the lunar axis in relation to their average positions. Therefore this '' staggering '' Moon allows us to see 59% of its surface at certain times. These moments of maximum libration that alternate between libration North, South, East and West, either in latitude or in longitude, gives us an interesting opportunity to make observations and lunar images of these regions still unknown to most of us. There are 3 types of librações: libration in longitude, latitude and daily libration libration .. Libration in latitude - is the effect of inclination of the plane of the lunar orbit to the plane of Earth's orbit. Libration in longitude - the effect is constant speed of rotation of the Moon and the variable speed of your revolution. The libration in longitude lets see adjacent areas east and west of the Hidden Face. Physical libration. - True to swing the axis of rotation of the Moon You are limited to a few arcminutes and is due to variations of the earth's attraction, even taking into account the heterogeneity of the interior of the Moon. This libration (East) - The libration of the moon reveals its surface part of the eastern edge that faces the earth. Libration West - The libration of the moon reveals part of the western edge of the surface that faces Earth. Libration North - The moon reveals part of the surface of the northern edge that is facing the earth. Libration South - The Moon reveals part of the surface of the southern edge that is facing the earth. In the case of the attached photos have a libration in longitude that would allow us to visualize a greater part of the eastern edge (east) if the sun had not already put into this site. I tried to highlight in the photos Eimmart crater with a yellow arrow and a small crater Eimmart What lies behind extamente Eimmart. Notice how in the photo of July 13, only a small Eimmart The edge is visible. In the photo on Nov. 8 the visible portion of the Eimmart is noticeably higher. This proves to us that there was a movement of libration in longitude since we are dealing with craters that lie in the lunar eastern edge.

I saw a speactacular HaRGB image of this bad boy several weeks ago (http://www.starkeeper.it/SH2-132.htm), so I took a turn at it in NB and was pleased with the result.

Yet among them two always draw attention by peculiarities of the inside of your floor, they are Pythagoras and Philolaus. Pythagoras has a very prominent central mountain is interesting to note that as the angle of sunlight to shade this mountain strongly resembles the image of a crouching dog PythagorasIt is a prominent impact crater, has an oval appearance due to the oblique angle of vision. Only the western inner face can be seen from the ground, the other side is permanently out of sight. With edges preserved, Pythagoras has a large terrace system, and a small wall around the outside. Although generally circular contour of the crater has a hexagonal shape. The floor is flat but with an irregular inequality. There is evidence slips around the periphery. Centrally fairly steep mountain has a double peak which rises 1.5 km above the crater.

Oct. I was looking forward to attempt capturing comet c/2013 A1 Siding Spring cruising close to Mars, however the brightness of Mars did not allow me to identify the comet from the stars nearby, even though I had an idea were it was meant to be. After giving up I decided to keep just one image of 30 sec. When I checked various planetarium progs. I thought I identified the comet from the other stars nearby, but was not 100% sure. An astronomer friend of mine, Stephen Brincat of Flarestar Observatory in Malta, took the trouble to help and confirmed that my calculations were correct, after eliminating the nearby stars in the image.<br /><br />2 comments http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12909-comet-c-2013-a1-siding-spring-next-to-mars.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12909-comet-c-2013-a1-siding-spring-next-to-mars.html Tue, 28 Oct 2014 16:52:29 -0400 NGC-225 Rotated and Cropped <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/floyd-s-pics/p12908-ngc-225-rotated-and-cropped.html"><img title="NGC_225_LRGB_Flip_Gal.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/522/thumbs/NGC_225_LRGB_Flip_Gal.jpg" alt="NGC_225_LRGB_Flip_Gal.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Fblue<br /><br />Description}: NGC-225 Rotated and Cropped Decided to try a different framing of the object.<br /><br />1 comment http://www.astrophotogallery.org/floyd-s-pics/p12908-ngc-225-rotated-and-cropped.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/floyd-s-pics/p12908-ngc-225-rotated-and-cropped.html Tue, 28 Oct 2014 13:30:20 -0400 Soul Nebula <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/sharpless-catalog/p12907-soul-nebula.html"><img title="Soul1.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/772/thumbs/Soul1.jpg" alt="Soul1.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Cheman http://www.astrophotogallery.org/sharpless-catalog/p12907-soul-nebula.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/sharpless-catalog/p12907-soul-nebula.html Tue, 28 Oct 2014 09:46:07 -0400 Soul Nebula <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/sharpless-catalog/p12906-soul-nebula.html"><img title="Soul1.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/772/thumbs/Soul1.jpg" alt="Soul1.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Cheman http://www.astrophotogallery.org/sharpless-catalog/p12906-soul-nebula.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/sharpless-catalog/p12906-soul-nebula.html Tue, 28 Oct 2014 09:46:07 -0400 Soul Nebula <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/sharpless-catalog/p12905-soul-nebula.html"><img title="Soul1.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/772/thumbs/Soul1.jpg" alt="Soul1.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Cheman http://www.astrophotogallery.org/sharpless-catalog/p12905-soul-nebula.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/sharpless-catalog/p12905-soul-nebula.html Tue, 28 Oct 2014 09:46:07 -0400 M33 Triangulum <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/messier-catalog/p12904-m33-triangulum.html"><img title="M31-12.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/768/thumbs/M31-12.jpg" alt="M31-12.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Cheman http://www.astrophotogallery.org/messier-catalog/p12904-m33-triangulum.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/messier-catalog/p12904-m33-triangulum.html Tue, 28 Oct 2014 09:41:37 -0400 M33 Triangulum <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/messier-catalog/p12903-m33-triangulum.html"><img title="M31-12.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/768/thumbs/M31-12.jpg" alt="M31-12.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Cheman http://www.astrophotogallery.org/messier-catalog/p12903-m33-triangulum.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/messier-catalog/p12903-m33-triangulum.html Tue, 28 Oct 2014 09:41:37 -0400 M33 Triangulum <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/messier-catalog/p12902-m33-triangulum.html"><img title="M31-12.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/768/thumbs/M31-12.jpg" alt="M31-12.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Cheman http://www.astrophotogallery.org/messier-catalog/p12902-m33-triangulum.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/messier-catalog/p12902-m33-triangulum.html Tue, 28 Oct 2014 09:41:37 -0400 ic5146_cocoon-lrgb-v2-1600x1200-web <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/october-2014-medium-nebula/p12901-ic5146-cocoon-lrgb-v2-1600x1200-web.html"><img title="ic5146_cocoon-lrgb-v2-1600x1200-web.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/1284/thumbs/ic5146_cocoon-lrgb-v2-1600x1200-web.jpg" alt="ic5146_cocoon-lrgb-v2-1600x1200-web.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: avdhoeven<br /><br />Description}: Last weekend I was at a star party here in the Netherlands.
