Tadpoles in IC410

Tadpoles are twisted trails of interstellar matter in the IC410 hydrogen cloud. In the same moment these are must have in every astrophotographer…


WeBo1 and Mel15

Do you remember december molecular trophies? There were hydrogen alpha only band of Melotte 15 open cluster in the middle of the Heart nebula…


December molecular trophies

Over December I collected some significant amount of photons - mainly narrowband ones. Now I need to process them somehow to create pretty pictures,…


Perseus in California

Well, actually it is vice versa - California nebula in Perseus constellation. It is large emission nebula, it spans almost 2.5 degree long over the…


Rosette one more time

I pictured NGC2244 Rosette nebula almost three years ago. It was 6" newtonian then and CCD camera. A few days ago again it came to my field of view -…


Rosette emission

NGC2244 Rosette emission nebula is extreme, it is actually a complex that consists of hot, young stars (about 2500 of them are there), molecular…


Auriga blobs

A few days ago forecast was very kind - starting from midnight there will be clear sky - it said. Well, not this time. Clouds slowly broke up around…


Cepheus star nursery

NGC7822 is star-gas-dust cloud in Cepheus constellation. As you probably already know these are perfect conditions for star forming, and that is also…


Hydrogen Phantom Mask

This one is HII molecular hydrogen cloud in Perseus arm of our Galaxy. It's Sharpless number is Sh2-173, and can be found in Cassiopeia close to…


QHY163M fine tuning side effects

Well, nothing really happened fortunately :)  "Side effects" here means only one more target that I was able to picture last night, when I have been…


QHY163M fine tuning with haze

Yesterday out of nowhere some stars stroke me after cloudy day. But the joy was short-lived, soon humidity reached 99% and some haze came out.…


Cave in the sky

Cepheus attacks again - this time with the Cave nebula (aka Sh2-155 or Caldwell 9). It is beautiful object in LRGB, but requires dark sky for this…
