To celebrate the end of 2015, Sky and Telescope (S&T) featured close to a hundred Orion Nebula (M42) photos submitted in their online image gallery–posting one random photo every hour until they have posted all the photos in the collection (started on December 24 and lasted until December 28, 2015).

Shown here is my M42 photos, as part of the S&T’s Orion Nebula Series.

California nebula

Wide-field image of the California Nebula (right) and the dark nebula beside it (left) taken with a Canon 450D DSLR and a 50 mm f/1.8 kit lens, ISO 1600, 12 x 20 sec exposure, on November 11, 2012 under the dark clear skies of Boso-boso, Rizal, Philippines. The low surface brightness of California Nebula makes it an extremely difficult target to observe visually, but shows up nicely in photos. Photo Credit: Anthony Urbano.

As part of the UP Astronomical Society’s 2012 Members’ Lecture Series, we hunted some DSO’s on April 20, 2012, at the PAGASA Astronomical Observatory in UP Diliman, Quezon City.

DSO Lecture UP Astrosoc

DSO-hunting with UP Astrosoc

We have successfully viewed the following objects in a severely light-polluted sky using only a 4-inch telescope!

M4 globular cluster, M6 (Butterfly Cluster) open cluster, M7 (Ptolemy’s Cluster) open cluster, M8 Lagoon Nebula (diffuse nebula), M20 Trifid Nebula (diffuse nebula), M21 open cluster, M13 (Hercules Cluster) globular cluster, M92 globular cluster, M57 (Ring Nebula) planetary nebula, M27 (Dumbell Nebula) planetary nebula, Albireo double star, Mizar double star, Cor Caroli double star, Coathanger asterism, and the Milky Way!

Wide-field image of the Veil Nebula taken with a 50 mm kit lens equipped with an OIII filter using a Canon 450D DSLR, 2 x 180 sec exp, IS0 1600, Kenko NES mount. April 15, 2012. Photo Credit: Anthony Urbano

 

A 30-minute exposure with an OIII filter shows the fine thread-like structure of the Veil Nebula, a supernova remnant in the constellation Cygnus. The narrow-band filter helps cut through the severe light pollution in the city. Sky-Watcher 100 ED 4 in f/9 refractor, Kenko NES mount, Canon 450D DSLR, 4 x 480 sec exp, IS0 1600. April 15, 2012.
