Barred spiral galaxy located in the constellation Andromeda, distant about 40 million light years from Earth.Continue reading “NGC 7640 in Andromeda”
Messier 5 is a globular cluster in the constellation Serpens distant from Earth 25000 light years.
This is the processed image from the sequence of images shot by Susy Ghia using the 150mm f/5.35 refractor, part of the network of ASTRA remote telescope in Castiglione del Lago, Italy.Continue reading “Messier 5 with ASTRA Telescope”
The final result is the combination of 4 images at 120 seconds in Luminance for a total of 8 minutes exposition with a Planewave CDK 24” in Sierra Remote Observatory at Auberry California.Continue reading “NGC6946 in Chepeus with a 0.61m Astrograph”
In May a Supernova, named 2020fqv has been discovered in the galaxy NGC4568, this is the processed result of 4 images in Luminance and Red Filter shot by Susy Ghia with ASTRA remote telescope.Continue reading “Supernova 2020fqv in NGC4568”
After the NGC 4945 I came back to M63 the Sunflower Galaxy, is a spiral galaxy in the northern constellation of Canes Venatici. I made the RGB version using the beautiful photo from Dean Jacobsen’s Astrophotography website.Continue reading “Messier 63 – The Sunflower Galaxy in LRGB with some help”
The image is the composition of 4 x 120 seconds exposure in Clear filter from the iTelescope.net T17 at Siding Spring Observatory in Australia, 432mm f/6.7 reflector and CCD FLI ProLine PL4710. I used also two images from ESO website in order to add colors to the image.Continue reading “NGC 4945 The Perfect Shot”
The galaxy NGC 4565 in Coma Berenices, is the composition of 6 x 120 seconds in R channel + 6 x 120 seconds in B channel, the G channel has been synthesized with IRIS.
The images have been processed with IRIS and Lightroom CC, then I used Astrometrica for data reduction and APT to extract a source list. The result has been analyzed with Topcat, Aladin and CDS Portal website.Continue reading “The Needle Galaxy – NGC 4565 and Surroundings”
Not at the center as I hoped but still made my day, I took this photo with iTelescope T17, a really big reflector, 432mm f/6.7 and a CCD with high QE.Continue reading “NGC 4945 Almost Perfect Shot…”
Composition of 6 images at 120 seconds of exposition per image in R channel, I used the iTelescope T5 in Mexico, a 0.25m f/3.4 reflector with SBIG ST-10XME CCD.Continue reading “Galaxy M81 with iTelescope T5”
The raw images have been shot by Susy Ghia with ASTRA remote telescope, a 90cm f/4.5 reflector with camera SBIG ST-8300M.
The processed image is the composition of 2 frames with exposition of 900 seconds per frame. I used IRIS for registration and stacking, then I used Lightroom CC to stretch the levels and make it more pleasant to look at. I did data reduction using Astrometrica and APT to extract a source list, then I analyzed the luminance frame using TOPCAT and Aladin.Continue reading “M101 and Surroundings with ASTRA by Susy Ghia”
