M31 - Andromeda Galaxy

http://jeffjastro.com
Hi all :)  Here is my latest result. I imaged this on Thanksgiving eve (23 Nov 2016) here in my city. As normal, imaged this using my backyard portable setup. Hope you enjoy - I was so happy to get out again after so much time since my last imaging session. Also, this image was a test of the focus on my small Tak FS-60C telescope - it performed beyond my expectations. Love this scope.

Re-visit of B343 data

http://jeffjastro.com
Hi all :) Due to an exceptionally long time without imaging (due to weather and just generally bad timing), I re-visited data from 2013. Here is the result:

Barnard 343 - Dark nebula in Cygnus
More details on the image/data are here:  http://jeffjastro.com/dso/B343_8Nov13.htm

I have since been able to get out on the day before Thanksgiving here, so I will be working on that dataset in the coming days :)

M96 group of galaxies

http://jeffjastro.com
Hi all:  Last object from earlier this year.  Here is data I have saved from back in Feb - purposely waited to process as we have had generally poor imaging weather, since. I actually picked up 3 asteroids during this imaging session :)  I have more info about that in the "Notes" area at the link.
