Sam's AstroImages / My Projects

Current Progress

July 28, 2017 • Sam Barber

At this point I have updated the website with all of my finished products. However, I do have several projects in the making.

M 27, 1hr Ha and 1hr OIII.

Cocoon nebula, 1hr CLS (from a dark site)

M 31, 1hr CLS (from a dark site)

I also plan to begin a narrowband project photographing the North america Nebula.

Gamma Cygni and Veil

July 9, 2017 • Sam Barber

I have currently posted a two panel mosaic of the gamma cygni region, but I have captured 1hr on the 3rd panel. Also have acquired 2hrs of Ha data on the Veil @200mm, planning to do a HaOIII Bicolor. Will add RGB to Gamma cygni after the moon goes away.

Current targets:

4th Panel, Ha, Cygnus mosaic

Veil Neb, @200mm, OIII

M 27, Ha and OIII, @600mm

NGC 7000, SHO, @400mm

M 16, SHO

July 3, 2017 • Sam Barber

Phew, just finished M 16. I have been working on this one for a couple of nights now, but it’s hard when I’m only getting one or two hours a night. I’m getting to where I can run the equipment all night, I just need some clear skies to test it out.

I’m heading to a semi dark site tomorrow night, a blue or green zone. Moon and fireworks mean that I will be shooting all narrowband.

Targets:

Add Ha and OIII to M 27, 6NT.

Ha and OIII to IC 1318/ngc 6914 region, 200mm

Ha and OIII, Veil, 200mm

SHO of NGC 7000 and IC 5070, 400mm
