Eastern Veil Nebula – First Light QHY 163m

This is the official first-light for my new QHY 163m cooled CMOS camera. For this, I decided to go for the Eastern Veil Nebula, again. The Veil is definitely one of the most striking supernova remnants. The supernova that created it has exploded 8000 years ago and the remnant has been expanding since then. The […]

Cygnus Loop in Bicolor

The complete Cygnus Loop or Veil Complex in a bicolor narrowband rendering. Recently, I posted a version of the same object taken during my summer vacation in the Mediterranean. I liked it, but was not perfectly happy with the raw data and the processing. So, back home I decided to do it again from scratch, […]

Cygnus Loop – Wide Field II

Now the three-color version of the Cygnus Loop in Ha, OIII and SII using 24 x 300 sec exposures for each channel, i.e. a total of 6 hours. Taken with the ATIK 460EXm camera in combination with my Asahi/Pentax Takumar 135mm f2.5 photo lens. Exposure: HOS, (24,24,24) x 300sec Date: 2016-7-17…2016-7-18 Setup: Takumar 135mm f2.5 […]

Cygnus Loop – Wide Field

This is the first-light image with my new wide-field travel setup. I decided to try the ATIK 460EXm camera in combination with some old M42 photo lens, in this case with the Asahi/Pentax Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 135mm f2.5, a wonderful super-solid 6-element tele-lens from 1972 (my age). This combination gives a field of view of more […]

Eastern Veil Nebula – NGC6992, NGC6995

It has been a while since the last few hours of clear skies from my backyard, but now I had another chance. I decided to go for a bi-color image of the Eastern Veil Nebula using Ha and OIII data. The Veil is one of the largest and most spectacular supernova remnants. The supernova that […]
