Comet 141P Machholz

Gregg Ruppel
 

Hi all:

Comet 141P Machholz brightened in December and is now around magnitude 10-11:

Some observers have spotted two fragments trailing the main body, but unfortunately I didn't compose appropriately to capture these faint companions.

LRGB, 40 minutes total exposure from Dark Sky New Mexico.

Arp 23

Gregg Ruppel
 

Hi

Arp 23 consists of NGC 4618 and 4625, both cataloged by Arp as 'one-armed spirals':

NGC 4625 appears to have an almost complete ring, as well as a faint companion just to its east (NGC 4625A?).

Hi,

This is an image of NGC 1291. It is a ring galaxy with a unique inner bar structure and an outer ring structure. It is believed that ring galaxies form when a smaller galaxy passes through the center of a larger galaxy. It is located about 33 million light years away in the constellation Eridanus. 

Comments and suggestions welcomed.

Thanks everyone. I thought for a moment there was something wrong with my equipment. The weird thing is usually when the seeing is this bad, my guiding is all over the place, but last night not so much.

Bernard,

 

It was terrible last night. A first for me, I just turn my setup off rather than even letting it take exposures hoping to get a few. This is the worst I’ve encountered since installing equipment here. I would add that it was pretty much 100% thin clouds last night, too so that didn’t help.

Hi,

 

Did anyone but me get horrible results last night. Some of my subs had FWHM of 5. Clear skies said the seeing was supposed to be average. Did anyone else get bad results or is it just me?

 

Thanks,

Hi Bernard,

I actually didn't even bother powering up last night.  ClearOutside (usually my go-to for astro weather) had pretty strong predictions for high clouds last night, which seems to correlate well with what you experienced.

Bernard,

 

This one is awesome. It reminds me a bit of Hoag’s galaxy. I might just try this one with my refractor from DSNM while I’m onsite this week.

Re: [ASEMDigitalSIG] Arp 299 and 296

Dan Crowson
 

Gregg,

This is really nice. I was surprised to find that tail as well when I started imaging this one a year (or more ago). I eventually found a paper on it but it seemed like my image showed more than the paper. I continued to take more luminance but I have yet to post it because I'm not sure if I'm 'done' yet or not on it.

Thanks for posting,

Dan

Subject: [ASEMDigitalSIG] Arp 299 and 296

Hi all:

Arp's catalog of peculiar galaxies lists 299 as a 'double' galaxy consisting of NGC3690E and 3690W, interacting with IC 694 (alsoVV 18c). The galaxies are in the upper left quadrant of this image:

http://www.greggsastronomy.com/IMAGES/arp299-LRGB.jpg

Arp 299 is characterized by a large faint tail pointing to the northeast as well as a faint wide tail to the southwest.

Arp 296 lies just east of 299 and consists of PGC35345 and an SDSS 18th magnitude galaxy to its south; the two appear connected by an almost straight line tail.

1.3X crop of luminance, highly stretched to show the tails:
