OK, ok, you got me there...hadn't seen Tony's M82 and I agree it is THE best I have seen. I was completely blown away, however, by his M81 about ten years ago at the Texas Star Party when he gave one of the evening presentations on his imaging techniques - he was still using film then. The HII regions were amazingly obvious and pink - they weren't commonly seen on amateur photos like they are now.

this same image but in color!

this one is decent ;-)

Thanks for your encouraging comments on M81.



Here is the red headed step child of M81, the next door neighbor, M82.



This is 16x 10 minutes, ISO1600, EOS40D, and the TEC200ED and of course the AP1200 mount which makes it possible.

The EOS DSLR can't seem to pick up on the giant red "X" structure as well as a CCD. I guess a modified DSLR might do better in that respect.

Another nice one Mike!



The change in the camera bandpass filter does help the sensitvity of the camera but throughs off the color balance. It's worth it in my opinion if you have another camera for non-astro use.

The suspicious looking couple are at it again, the TEC200 and EOS40D.

This is 45 exposures @ 10 mins, and is definitely all the M82 I am willing to collect this year.

I see a nice galaxy cluster to the upper right of M82. Or is it a galac-sterism?

Hi,  Below is an image of  M82 I took with a TEC-140 and an SBIG-ST8300. I was very pleased and surprised at the amount of detail I was able to get in the gas plumes blasting out of the central core.  www.azstarman.net/M82.htm  Thanks,  Bernard

That is a beautiful image! If you don't mind, could I ask you a question about the TEC-140? When you visually observe a bright object in the TEC-140, say Jupiter, do you see a halo of light surrounding the planet or is it jet black right up to the edge of the planet? Thanks,Bill

bill -- don't you know that "imager types" pathetically "always" have their camera attached to the scope and "never" actually look through it. i'll guess bernard has never actually LOOKED at jupiter through his TEC140 (but he may not admit it :-)



Lee



p.s. but yes, the sky will be jet black right up to the edge of the planet :-)

If you can see a halo of light arund bright objects it means that either on the eyepiece or the objective lenses has formed some dew or the eyepiece is simply dirty from eyelashes contact.

Hi Bernard, that is a beautiful image !  I have imaged M82 with the140 and it has a long ways to go before it comes close to your image:')

Gedas, W8BYAGallery at gedas.ccLight travels faster thansound..This is why some people appear bright until you hear themspeak.

Will I be able to see the supernova in M82 with my TEC140?

Don,



This supernova is bright enough for a 140 TEC

Hi folks,Here is an image of the M81-M82 galaxy group.Luminance from new site in Eastern Washington: Rimrock Meadows. RGB from Howard Miller Steel head Park in Rockport, WA

Unfortunately I had to toss a lot of subs out because they just weren't sharp enough. Eventually I averaged around 2.2-2.5" FWHM for the stack. I tried to preserve as much detail and color in the galaxies whilst also revealing a bit of the IFN. Hopefully it was successful.

5 and 10 min subs Luminance: 4 hours totalRGB: 40 mins each channel (2 hours total: 5 min subs)

Equipment: TEC ADL, AP900, Moravian camera.
