M27 taken on 18th September 2009.
Sum of 4 x 120s luminance, 4 x 120s Halpha plus 5 x 120s for each of R, G & B filters, QSI 532ws camera at f 6.55
The evening got quite cloudy and with autoguider problems as well I gave up after taking this image.
This planetary nebula is also known as the Dumbbell Nebula and can be easily found in most telescopes, although a camera is required to see any colour. Even with binoculars it can be found as a bright fuzzy patch.
M106 taken on 17th March 2010.
Sum of 3 x 300s luminance, 3 x 300s Halpha plus 1 x 300s for each of R, G & B filters, QSI 532wsg camera at f 6.0
This was a short test after re-alignment, but it looks quite nice so I have added it to the images here, even though I have added it to these pages before.
NGC4631 taken on 17th March 2010.
Sum of 2 x 300s luminance plus 1 x 300s for each of R, G & B filters, QSI 532wsg camera at f 6.0
Another short test after re-alignment. This galaxy is a barred spiral galaxy seen edge on. The small galaxy near by is NGC4627
NGC3395 and NGC3396 taken on 24th April 2011.
Sum of 8 x 300s luminance plus 4 x 300s for each of R, G, B & H filters, QSI 532wsg camera at f 6.89
Starlight XPress AO unit used. The night was quite windy and the AO unit really worked well on this image. These are very faint and small objects to image. The two galaxies are interacting with each other.
