Here is a view of an emission nebula in the constellation Centaurus known as the Running Chicken Nebula. The bright glowing red is hydrogen gas that is emitting red wavelengths of light after absorbing energy from nearby starlight. I used a CDK24 telescope and L-600 mount to capture 8 hours of images through LRGB filters from Observatorio El Sauce. I processed the images with PixInsight and Photoshop.
I imaged the Centaurus A Galaxy from the pristine dark skies of Observatorio El Sauce in Chile. The galaxy is an estimated 10 to 16 million light years away. Amazing to think that the galaxy is also 60,000 light years across! So that means the light takes 60,000 years to travel from one end of the galaxy to the other end! Considering 1 light year is 5.8 trillion miles I can’t even fathom that scale! Imaged in collaboration with Nick Dunckel and his CDK24 and L-600 mount. I used 10 x 5 minute exposures through LRGB filters
Pictured here is over 26-hours of exposure on a beautiful nebula visible in the Southern Hemisphere known as NGC3579. I used a CDK24 and L-600 mount to capture images with the FLI Proline 16803 CCD camera from the dark night skies of Observatorio El Sauce. The camera collected wavelengths of hydrogen gas (greenish color), sulfur (brownish red color), and oxygen (bluish color). When combined and mapped to RGB channels, the resulting Hubble Pallette colors are shown. Needless to say I was blown away while processing this nebula!
