/>Description}: Craig &amp; I finally had a long run of clear nights, giving us the opportunity to revisit M31 - Andromeda Galaxy. While we have imaged this three times in the past, we have never gotten this much integration time under good, dark skies. This image was captured from our backyard where our SQM readings averaged 20.89 over the three nights we captured our 17 hours of data. We are so glad we found CCD AutoPilot :-) Messier 31, the Andromeda Galaxy, is a spiral galaxy located around 2.54 million light years from Earth in the constellation Andromeda. With a size of approximately 220,000 light years across, it is the largest galaxy in the group known as the Local Group, which is also home to our own Milky Way. Andromeda has 14 known satellite galaxies. Two of the best known and readily observed are M110 (also known as NGC 205) and M32 and can be seen in this image. The Spitzer Space Telescope revealed in 2006 that this huge galaxy contains one trillion stars, which is more than twice as many in the Milky Way, which is estimated at around 200 to 400 billion. It is expected in 3.75 billion years that Andromeda Galaxy will collide with our Milky Way Galaxy and eventually merge to form a giant elliptical galaxy or possibly a large disc galaxy. Andromeda’s apparent magnitude of 3.4 puts it among the brightest of the Messier objects and is visible with the naked eye under dark moonless skies. Andromeda Galaxy was described in 964, by the Persian astronomer Abd al-Rahman al-Sufi, as a “nebulous smear.” In 1612, the German astronomer Simon Marius gave a description of this galaxy based on telescopic observations. Charles Messier catalogued M31 in 1764, but incorrectly credited Marius with its discovery, despite it being naked eye visible.

It lies close to the direction of the open cluster Messier 52. The &quot;bubble&quot; is created by the stellar wind from a massive hot, 8.7[1] magnitude young central star, the 15 ± 5 M&amp;#9737;[4] SAO 20575 (BD+60 2522).[7] The nebula is near a giant molecular cloud which contains the expansion of the bubble nebula while itself being excited by the hot central star, causing it to glow.[7] It was discovered in 1787 by William Herschel.[5] The star SAO 20575 or BD+602522 is thought to have a mass of 10-40 Solar masses.<br /><br />2 comments http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13847-the-bubble-nebula.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13847-the-bubble-nebula.html Sun, 11 Sep 2016 00:10:57 -0400 NGC 7293 - Helix Nebula <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13846-ngc-7293-helix-nebula.html"><img title="ngc7293_SD150_LRGB_v2.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/ngc7293_SD150_LRGB_v2.jpg" alt="ngc7293_SD150_LRGB_v2.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Iceman<br /><br />Description}: RGB data acquired over 2 nights from Lockwood Valley, CA, September 2-3, 2016 54 x 300s RGB Acquired in BYEOS, stacked in Nebulosity, processed in Photoshop.<br /><br />1 comment http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13846-ngc-7293-helix-nebula.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13846-ngc-7293-helix-nebula.html Fri, 09 Sep 2016 12:57:49 -0400 NGC 7380 - Wizard Nebula in Cepheus <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13845-ngc-7380-wizard-nebula-in-cepheus.html"><img title="ngc7380_SD150_HaLRGB_v2.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/ngc7380_SD150_HaLRGB_v2.jpg" alt="ngc7380_SD150_HaLRGB_v2.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Iceman<br /><br />Description}: RGB data acquired from Lockwood Valley, CA, September 3, 2016 H-alpha data acquired over 2 nights from Tujunga, CA, September 6 and 8, 2016 13 x 300s RGB 3 x 480s RGB 49 x 600s H-alpha Acquired in BYEOS, stacked in Nebulosity, processed in Photoshop.<br /><br />2 comments http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13845-ngc-7380-wizard-nebula-in-cepheus.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13845-ngc-7380-wizard-nebula-in-cepheus.html Fri, 09 Sep 2016 12:16:49 -0400 Pelican nebula IC5070 SEp. 3, 2016 <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/deep-space-objects/p13844-pelican-nebula-ic5070-sep-3-2016.html"><img title="2016-0903-IC5070-Pelican-T2I-1h13m-DSS334-Raw-PS2_filtered-rot_crAPG.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/1137/thumbs/2016-0903-IC5070-Pelican-T2I-1h13m-DSS334-Raw-PS2_filtered-rot_crAPG.jpg" alt="2016-0903-IC5070-Pelican-T2I-1h13m-DSS334-Raw-PS2_filtered-rot_crAPG.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Surveyor<br /><br />Description}: Pelican Nebula taken Sep. 3, 2016, Bald Mtn., Jefferson National Forest, Craig County, Virginia.

/></a><br /><br />by: avdhoeven<br /><br />Description}: Sometimes you decide to make an image of a region of the sky and it just comes out exactly as you had hoped for. This was one of these moments for me. I decided a while back to image the Gamma Cygni Nebula around the star Sadr in the constellation of Cygnus. I knew this was a very interesting region in the sky and I started with gathering H-alpha data for a monochrome 3-panel mosaic as weather in the Netherlands doesn't permit extended imaging projects most of the time. But somehow we had a very good weather period and I was able to image this region during 6 nights in a 9 day period which is quite unique. When I noticed the weather forecasts I decided that I wanted to go for a color version of the image in a narrowband Hubble palette. So I just imaged one object during these six nights, but I'm so happy I did that :) The combination came out very nicely and really showed me the details that I wanted to get out of the image. With an apparent visual magnitude of +2.23, Sadr (Gamma Cyg) is among the brighter stars visible in the night sky. Parallax measurements give a distance estimate of 1,800 light years (560 parsecs), with a 15% margin of error. The stellar classification of this star is F8 Iab, indicating that it has reached the supergiant stage of its stellar evolution. Since 1943, the spectrum of this star has served as one of the stable anchor points by which other stars are classified. Compared to the Sun this is an enormous star, with 12 times the Sun's mass and about 150 times the Sun's radius. It is emitting over 33,000 times as much energy as the Sun, at an effective temperature of 6,100 K in its outer envelope. This temperature is what gives the star the characteristic yellow-white hue of an F-type star. Massive stars such as this consume their nuclear fuel much more rapidly than the Sun, so the estimated age of this star is only about 12 million years old. The spectrum of this star shows some unusual dynamic features, including variations in radial velocity of up to 2 km/s, occurring on a time scale of 100 days or more. Indeed, on the Hertzsprung–Russell diagram, Gamma Cygni lies close to the instability strip and its spectrum is markedly like that of a Cepheid variable. This star is surrounded by a diffuse nebula called IC1318, or the Gamma Cygni region. [source: wikipedia] The field of view spans over 3 degrees (six Full Moons) on the sky and includes emission nebula IC 1318 and open star cluster NGC 6910. Right of Gamma Cyg and shaped like two glowing cosmic wings divided by a long dark dust lane, IC 1318's popular name is understandably the Butterfly Nebula. Below and right of Gamma Cyg, are the young, still tightly grouped stars of NGC 6910. Some distance estimates for Gamma Cyg place it at around 1,800 light-years while estimates for IC 1318 and NGC 6910 range from 2,000 to 5,000 light-years.
