A deep Triangulum galaxy

A deep Triangulum galaxy

This fall I captured several tens of hours of images on the Triangulum galaxy, Messier 33. I used the popular broadband approach (LRGB), but also gathered more than 100 hours in narrow band filters in order to see the star forming regions and rich nebulae in this...

Barnard 150, Seahorse in Cepheus

  Barnard 150, also catalogued as LDN 1082, is a dark nebula located some 1,200 light-years from Earth in the Cepheus constellation. Unlike emission or reflection nebulae that emit or reflect light, dark nebulae are composed of dense, cold gas and dust that block the...

The Cone Nebula wide field

The Cone Nebula wide field

The Cone Nebula is part of a vast HII region located 2,700 light-years away from Earth in the Monoceros constellation. In this wide field image, composed by a 2 panne mosaic, we can also see several dark and reflection nebulae. The main deep sky objects in this field...
