astrophotography

Astronomical Images from the past. 8/10/17

Flame Nebula

I am going to add some of my astrophotography to this blog. I have been making astronomical images since early in the 21 century. These images are older images. Unfortunately, the computer I stored most of my astrophotography images on crashed and I lost most of the images.

The above image is the Flame Nebula. It is a sub section of the great nebula in the constellation of Orion.

T5-AniThe image was made with a remotely controlled .333 meter telescope in Mayhill, New Mexico, USA. The CCD camera was cooled close to 0 degrees centigrade and the exposure was about 3 hours to 72 registered and stacked FITS images using Red, Green, and Blue filters and processed with CCD and Photoshop software. I lost the image of the telescope but this is what it looked like.

Carinea Nebula

This is the Carina Nebula as viewed from a telescope in Siding Springs, New South Wales, Australia in 2014.

At present iTelescope has 20 telescopes in Spain, 2 locations in the US, and Australia. They are all remotely controlled over the Internet.

They range from a refactor of 105 mm.
