Thanks.  I got an APOD a few years ago with Comet Garradd passing near M15.

Hi all:

Comet c2019 Y4 Atlas continues to brighten, devlope a tail, and is now a circumpolar object:

Arp 283 consists of NGC 2798 (UGC 4905, VV 50a and others) on the right and NGC 2799 (UGC 4909, VV 50b and others) on the left. Part of Arp’s ‘Double Galaxies – Infall and Attraction’ class, both are located around 84-86 million light-years away in Lynx.

 

UGC 4904 is the somewhat odd galaxy located below Arp 283.

 

MCG+07-19-046 is the galaxy near the top center. Simbad doesn’t appear to classify it but it looks E to me.

 

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1

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

 

360 minutes total exposure – 6 hours

 

Imaged February 17th, 19th and 23rd, 2020 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.

Hi,

This is an image of NGC 3324, also known as the Gabriela Mistral Nebula due to its resemblance of the Chilean poet (I have to admit, I’m not seeing it). NGC 3324 is actually the open cluster outside the FOV of this image. The nebula is actually IC 2599. The two are close together and often confused as a single object. It is about 7,500 light years away in the constellation Carina.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.

Hi all:
NGC 3718 is a warped spiral galaxy in Ursa Major, considered to be interacting with NGC3729 (left in the image).  It is also cataloged as Arp 214:
http://www.greggsastronomy.com/IMAGES/ngc3718-LRGB.jpg

Just below (south) is the Hickson 56 galaxy chain consisting of 5 galaxies.  Four of the five (excluding PGC 35631 on the left) make up  Arp 322.

Great at Home

William McLaughlin
 

I just have to say it is great to be able to pursue a hobby while staying at home for this miserable pandemic. Not everyone is that lucky. Thanks to Al and the rest for making this work. I am delighted to be able to continue to pursue my hobby thru this period. It makes life much less boring and stressful.

In my case, it is even better since I live at a dark sky site that is clear in summer. I am working on a new equipment configuration for at home. Fortunately I am able to order things like aluminum on line and even disinfect them when they arrive if I wish. We are in rural hibernation and anyone that arrives is  sprayed with bleach. They hate that. <G>

Nice...no chicken as far as I can tell either. The blue channel (OIII?) really provides great contrast for the Bok globules.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi,

This is an image of IC 2044, also known as the Running Chicken Nebula. I will be honest with you I am not seeing the chicken. It is an open cluster and associated emission nebula about 6,500 light years away in the constellation Centaurus. It has some very prominent Bok Globules in the center, which are usually sites of active star formation. However, there does not appear to be any star formation associated with the globules in IC 2044. This image was captured with 5nm narrowband filters (Ha, SII, and OIII) and processed with the Hubble palette.

Hi all:
NGC 3169 and 3166 are two interacting galaxies in Sextans; nearby just below them is NGC 3165 and near the bottom of the FOV is NGC 3156:

Somehow Arp missed this grouping. Just below NGC 3169 is the track of asteroid 1604 Tombaugh (thanks to Dan Crowson for ID).
