Barnard 227

Dan Crowson
 

Barnard 227 (LDN 1570 and more) is small dark nebula located off of the top ‘arm’ of Orion or a degree below the Monkey Head nebula.

 

Asteroid 774 Armor can be found to the right.

 

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1

RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2

 

360 minutes total exposure – 6 hours

 

Imaged February 6th, 7th and 8th, 2021 from Dark Sky New Mexico at Rancho Hidalgo (Animas, New Mexico) with a SBIG STF-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT12RCT at f/8 2432mm.

Brian,

I tried doing some variable star work and the seeing was bad. I woke up early (3 AM DSNM time) to try continuing but the seeing was even worse so I just parked.

Was anyone imaging last evening? I was doing testing following some mount adjustments from PlaneWave. I started at 9:25pm and ended at 10:45pm.
Seems like there was a 1-4mph breeze with occasional small gusts. Seems like the seeing was mediocre. How does this compare with others?
Thanks.

Hi all:

Here are a couple of faint comets, imaged monochrome because of the nearly full moon:

156P Russell-LINEAR (magnitude 12-13; recent magnitude estimates vary):
http://www.greggsastronomy.com/IMAGES/156P-Russell-LINEAR_022521.jpg

The bright star is epsilon Persei, magnitude 2.9

c2021 A2 NEOWISE (magnitude ~12):
http://www.greggsastronomy.com/IMAGES/c2021-A2-NEOWISE_022521.jpg

Luminance only, 15 x 120 seconds for both images. North is up.




Clear skies,

Gregg

Hi Brian
I didn’t try imaging A2 NEOWISE because it was so faint, plus the full moon precluded any easy color imaging.

Re: NGC 3981

Fascinating, Bernard!

Is the other galaxy visible?  Close by?   But probably not able to put it in the same frame.

Windswept is the right word.

Hi,

This is an image of NGC 3981. It is a spiral galaxy about 65 million light years away in the constellation Crater. Its windswept look is due to its outer arms being stripped away by an interaction with another galaxy. The data set was captured by Telescope Live using their ASA RC-1000AZ telescope. Image processing was performed by me with assistance from Adam Block who provided an excellent tutorial on processing this image.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.
