LDN 1217 is a Bok globule - a region where dust condenses to form protostars. The dark nebula is dimly illuminated by ultraviolet light, yielding a reddish glow characteristic of Extended Red Emission nebulae (EREs). On the left side of the image is the blue reflection nebula, vdB 152 (aka Cedarblad 201). The reflection nebula is illuminated by the bright star embedded within it. Curiously, though, the star's motion through space indicates that it is not formed from the condensing nebula - rather it is passing through the nebula. In this image, North is to the right. This image is cropped to 52% of the original image. Photographed on August 25 and 26, 2014, this image is made from 67 x 10 minute subs (total 11+ hours). Images Plus 5.75 for camera control. Images Plus 6.0 Beta for calibration, stacking, digital development, feature mask, star shrinking and halo reduction, smoothing and noise reduction. Photoshop CS5 used for levels and curves, high pass filter, star shrinking, screen mask invert, lab color, vibrance, saturation adjustments, lens correction, cropping and selective color. HLVG for additional color correction, Gradient Xterminator for gradient removal. Carboni Tools for additional noise reduction and smoothing, Focus Magic for focus restoration. Registar for stack alignment. This is my first light image for my &quot;dropped in a lake&quot; Nikkor 600mm f/4 lens. http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12804-vdb-152-and-ldn1217-the-wolf.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12804-vdb-152-and-ldn1217-the-wolf.html Sun, 31 Aug 2014 20:42:45 -0400 vdB 152 and LDN1217 - the Wolf <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12803-vdb-152-and-ldn1217-the-wolf.html"><img title="vdB152--600-6D-NoFilt-200-2014-0825-26--67x600--2048x.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/vdB152--600-6D-NoFilt-200-2014-0825-26--67x600--2048x.jpg" alt="vdB152--600-6D-NoFilt-200-2014-0825-26--67x600--2048x.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: srosenfraz<br /><br />Description}: This fascinating field in Cepheus features the the dark nebula LDN 1217 (aka Barnard 175).

I don't leave any of the equipment outside when not imaging. The three openings in the flooring are covered with the covers leaning on the side to the right. The blue toolbox on the flooring contains the power supplies for the mount and imager. The &quot;closet&quot; to the right of the telescope where the cables are going into is where the laptop is located. The main scope is an Orion f/4.7 10-inch with a SBIG ST-2000XM imager. The guide scope is a modified Orion ST-80 with a DSI Pro 2 imager. And the mount is a Losmandy G11. The walls allow me to use the scope when the wind is blowing. The &quot;barn door&quot; (shown opened) can be closed when windy. The boardwalk out to the site is to prevent me tracking mud into the house. Not as nice as a dome or a building with a roll-off roof, but it has worked out well. http://www.astrophotogallery.org/equipment-photos/p12799-current-setup.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/equipment-photos/p12799-current-setup.html Sat, 30 Aug 2014 16:19:55 -0400 section of NGC6960 <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ngc-catalog/p12798-section-of-ngc6960.html"><img title="HSORGBn6960t01_t04s.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/769/thumbs/HSORGBn6960t01_t04s.jpg" alt="HSORGBn6960t01_t04s.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: tjr650<br /><br />Description}: Back in 2012, I took 4 exposures each of this section of NGC6960 with the Ha, SII, and OIII (all 1x1 binned 900s).

The Triangulum Galaxy is a spiral galaxy approximately 3 million light-years (ly) from Earth in the constellation Triangulum. It is catalogued as Messier 33 or NGC 598, and is sometimes informally referred to as the Pinwheel Galaxy, a nickname it shares with Messier 101. The Triangulum Galaxy is the third-largest member of the Local Group of galaxies, which includes the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy and about 44 other smaller galaxies.

I have often found that the SII images is weaker than the Ha and OIII images causing me to backoff on the Ha and OIII when combining them when using the Hubble palette. For NGC6995, most of the nice details are in the Ha and OIII images. I have tried to put back some of those details by using a Luminosity layer created with the Ha and OIII images. Using PixInsight LE I combined the two images using the maximum pixel values from each, so the combined image has the best detail from each image. I think it is an improvement.<br /><br />1 comment http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ngc-catalog/p12775-ngc6995-narrowband-reprocessed.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ngc-catalog/p12775-ngc6995-narrowband-reprocessed.html Sun, 17 Aug 2014 11:29:35 -0400 the Soap Bubble PN G75.5+1.7 <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12774-the-soap-bubble-pn-g75-5-1-7.html"><img title="SoapBubbleHaLRGB4.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/SoapBubbleHaLRGB4.jpg" alt="SoapBubbleHaLRGB4.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: jeffweiss9<br /><br />Description}: 8.3hr HaLRGB Crop of the PN G75.5+1.7 planetary nebula from the full image.

The reasons it was not discovered until recently are given as its faintness and the fact that it is embedded in a diffuse nebula. At a distance of 4000 light years and 5 light years in diameter, its spherical symmetry is considered remarkable and comparable to Abell 39 which is about the same size. NGC6888, the nebula is a shell of gas that is being energized by the strong stellar wind from the Wolf-Rayet star WR 136 which is the bright star at the center of the nebula. http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12776-ngc6888-crescent-nebula-and-the-soap-bubble-pn-g75-5-1-7.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12776-ngc6888-crescent-nebula-and-the-soap-bubble-pn-g75-5-1-7.html Sat, 16 Aug 2014 13:58:51 -0400 NGC6888 Crescent Nebula and the Soap Bubble PN G75.5+1.7 <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12773-ngc6888-crescent-nebula-and-the-soap-bubble-pn-g75-5-1-7.html"><img title="ngc6888HaLRGB4.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/ngc6888HaLRGB4.jpg" alt="ngc6888HaLRGB4.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: jeffweiss9<br /><br />Description}: 8.3 hr HaLRGB NGC6888 (Crescent Nebula) and PN G75.5+1.7 (the Soap Bubble) in Cygnus The &quot;Soap Bubble Nebula&quot;, diagonally opposite the Crescent in this image, is a planetary nebula that was discovered by amateur astronomer Dave Jurasevich in 2008.
