  • NGC253 and 2070 from ASIGN II

    ASIGN II's big new telescope starting to prove itself. I still have a few tweaks to make and need to improve my processing, but it's getting really exciting now!

    Picture one is my first complete stack from the new telescope. This is one hour and twenty minutes of exposure on NGC253, Sculptor Galaxy.

    Distance - 11.4 million light years away.



    This second image is six and a half hours of exposure on NGC 2070 Tarantula Nebula.

    Distance - 159,800 light years away.

    Apparently if this bright nebula was as close to us as the Orion nebula, it would cast shadows.

      Totally amazing! Have you got a shot of the spacecraft on the comet?.. That could be worth a dollar or two!
      It's the little things!

      Cheers, Greg C.
