Arp 125 consists of UGC 10491 (VV 501 and others), the peculiar galaxy above PGC 58674. These are part of Arp’s ‘E and E-like Galaxies – Close to and Perturbing Spirals’ class and appear to be approximately 391 million light-years away in Hercules. Depend on the source, the system also contains more galaxies – I can see three or four.

 

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1

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

 

360 minutes total exposure – 6 hours

 

Imaged June 19th and 20th, 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 908. It is a spiral galaxy about 60 million light years away in the constellation Cetus. It is a starburst galaxy with many star forming regions seen in the spiral arms. It has three spiral arms with two having a strange morphology that may indicate a past interaction with another galaxy.

I was able to catch c2020 F3 Neowise in the early morning twilight. It appears slightly brighter than theta Aur (upper left) but was not visible to my unaided eyes. A great horned owl decided to photobomb just as it was rising:

Hi,

This is an image of NGC 4038 and NGC 4039, also known as Caldwell 60/61 or the Antennae Galaxies. Theses are a pair of interacting galaxies about 45 million light years away in the constellation Corvus. The object gets its nickname of the Antennae Galaxies from the two long trails of stars, gas, and dust ejected from the galaxies as a result of the collision. This image shows the likely future of our galaxy as it is expected to collide with the Andromeda galaxy. I have posted two views of this object, one that highlights the “antennae” trails and a close-up focusing on the merging galaxies.

Hi,

This is an image of M10, also known as NGC 6254. It is a globular cluster about 15,000 light years away in the constellation Ophiuchus. M10 is notable for its high concentration of blue stragglers, which are stars that appear to be much younger than their neighbors. The stars in globular clusters are thought to have formed at about the same time, so they should all be roughly the same age. This cluster contains many younger blue stars that are thought to have formed by collisions between stars or other stellar interactions.

It is a combination of an open cluster, an emission nebula (lower red portion), reflection nebula (upper blue portion), and dark nebula (gaps in the emission nebula).
