It didn’t seem like we had many clear nights here but I was able to take quite a number of astro images this past year. Join me as I look back over the best and worst deepsky images I imaged and processed in 2019. Which one did I like the best?
I performed some more test imaging with the ASI1600mm-cooled camera. This time I centered the telescope and camera on M31, the great Andromeda galaxy. I have imaged M31 before a few years ago using different equipment. This galaxy is a popular target at this time in the northern hemisphere when it rises high in the […]
A new Supernova was discovered in the galaxy known as M66 on May 28, 2016. I thought I’d get an image of this new discovery for myself and logged into the remote iTelescope at the AstroCamp Observatory in Nerpio, Spain. This is a Planewave 17″ CDK with a focal length of 2929mm and an SBIG […]
I’ve imaged the M81 and M82 galaxies before with other telescopes. These two neighbours form a striking pair in even small telescopes. Both are around 12-million light years away from Earth. Both are quite extraordinary in their own right. From the fantastic spiral structure and detail in M81 which harbours a 70-million solar masses supermassive […]
