Hi everyone:

van den Bergh (vdB) 134 is a tenous shell of reflection nebulosity surrounding the 4.9 magnitude star omega1 Cygni.  A small planetary nebula PN G086.1+05.4 is located just to the east (lower left quadrant in the image):

Nice one Bernard.  Another planetary that somehow made it into the Sharpless catalog of emission nebulae.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi,

This is an image of SH2-188. It is a planetary nebula about 850 light years away in the constellation Cassiopeia. The nebula is circular in shape, but much brighter in the on one side because the star is moving in that direction. This image was captured and processed in SHO narrowband with RGB data for the stars.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.

Looks nice! 

I remember that one from several years ago. I did a narrow band mosaic that I spent something like 80 hours of exposure on.

Hi all:

It took me a little over a month to find a few clear nights to gather the data for NGC 7822, a large emission nebula in Cepheus (also Sh2-171, Ced 214).  The small cluster just above center is Berk 59, consisting of about 40 stars:

NGC 6902

Bernard Miller
 

Hi,

This is an image of NGC 6902. It is a spiral galaxy about 130 million light years away in the constellation Sagittarius. It is noted for its faint spiral arms emanating from a bright central core. This image combines over 45 hours of exposure taken in New South Wales Australia in 2018 and Rio Hurtado, Chile in 2020.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.

That is a great image. Thanks for sharing. I am working on getting LRGB, HA, SII, and OIII data for the Cocoon Nebula.

William - I agree, this is a great site for visualizing predicted air motion at many different heights.  I also like the ability to look at different models, particularly GFS and ECMWF.  Thanks for passing this along.  I'm sure I'll be using it quite a bit in the future!
