First, it turns out that one of my images (Pacman Nebula) was selected and printed in a Monterrey, Mexico newspaper! My first hardcopy publishing and in a relatively popular newspaper. Details at my main link, here: http://jeffjastro.com/dso/NGC281_28Sep13.htm (notes area).
I am pretty far behind on the blog, so will just include mostly short updates, now :) I have added (on my main site) an area for notes that I now populate more if there is something of interest to the data/processing for each object, such as above. I invite you to check it out, if you like :)
Ok, for this post here is M78, and it is what is called a reflection nebula. For this, I opted for nearly all Lum and not Ha. Details: http://jeffjastro.com/dso/M78_8Nov13.htm
