  1. Comet Wirtanen 46P

    After a day of pouring rain it decided to clear tonight so I managed to grab the comet with a Canon 5D MkII and Canon 15mm fisheye lens. Greg
  2. Comet Wirtanen 46P

    I've felt 50 degrees in Crete and Arizona - it feels life threatening walking down the street. Greg
  3. A couple of days before Christmas I found a new Prime Number with just over 454,000 digits https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=125878 Greg
  4. Comet Wirtanen 46P

    Good grief!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Greg
  5. Comet Wirtanen 46P

    I see Gold Coast and Sydney got hail the size of golf balls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  6. M45 superdeep

    15 hours worth of 40-minute subs using the Sky 90 array Greg
  7. Virgo/Coma galaxy supercluster

    This is a composite negative B&W image of the Virgo/Coma galaxy supercluster region. There are 13 Messier objects in the frame. Can you find them all?? Greg
  8. Alpha & Beta Canis Minoris

    Star spikes rotated a bit for obvious reasons (if you look at the original). Greg
  9. Alpha & Beta Canis Minoris

    Procyon & Gomeisa with the Canon 200mm lenses - a 2-frame mosaic. Greg
  10. SAO76540

    I wanted to put a reprocess of this dusty region in Taurus on here - but it looked rubbish So here's the original. Greg
  11. Definitive M31

    Noel pulled out all the stops in processing this one. I think he is trying to encourage me to get the frames off the top and bottom of M31 I need no encouragement - next clear sky - I'm out there Greg
  12. M31 in perspective

    Just for a laugh I combined some old Canon 200mm lens on Canon 5D MkII data with the recent Sky 90 data to see M31 in perspective Greg
  13. M31 with the Sky 90 array

    With a full Moon (red circle) for size comparison. Greg
  14. M31 with the Sky 90 array

    Here's a quick process of last night's M31 data taken with the Sky 90 array. This is 9-hours worth of 20-minute subs. Weather permitting I will go for a LOT more data on this one and may start off with 30-minute subs Greg
  15. M31

    Got out for a couple of hours last night before the Moon rose. This is 11 x 10-minute subs using the Hyperstar III on the C11 with a Trius 814C OSC CCD. Noel Carboni processed this one as it was very difficult to sort out (flatten) with a large bright nucleus in the middle of the frame. Greg
  16. M31

    I took some flats and bias frames and sent the calibrated data to Noel who did a better job on the colour. Then I stuck some spikes on the stars Greg
  17. Another DC image

    Actually - VERY deep images of the region show it's full of red emission, probably all coming from the Heart nebula which you can just see top left. Greg
  18. Another DC image

    A different crop and process on a big Double Cluster FOV image. Greg
  19. M31

    I didn't refocus during those 110-minutes, but it was coming up to refocus time Usually need to refocus the Hyperstar every hour on a cold night. Greg
  20. Above Caph

    Caph is in the lower left. This is another 200mm lens image, 18 subs, 15-minutes per sub. Processing for this one by Noel Carboni who screwed the pants off it trying to bring out CTB1 which you can barely make out bang in the centre of the image. Greg
  21. Kemble's Cascade

    A reprocess of the Kemble's Cascade data sans spikes Greg
  22. Caph

    Cheers Ray - as you can see - it is right in the Milky Way Greg
  23. Caph

    As I finished this imaging session it fogged right over - I was extremely lucky to only lose the last pair of subs!! One of my favourite areas, the Caph region of Cassiopeia with NGC7789 in the bottom right hand corner. 200mm lenses with Trius M26C OSC CCDs. 14 subs at 15-minutes per sub. Greg
  24. 1 Frame Wonder M8, M20, & M21

    Holy Moly - just a single (short!!) sub - that is an amazing place to image Greg
  25. Caph

    The above Caph data combined with some earlier (2-frame) data. Greg
