Greg,
That is a very good Trunk. It just so happens I uploaded mine to Instagram a couple days ago:

They do look quite similar, despite quite different equipment. One-shot color, 5 hrs total.

Hi all:

IC 1396 A & B, along with vdB142 make up what it commonly called the "Elephant's Trunk Nebula". This was a target that I had not imaged for about 5 years, so I revisited it during the last new moon period:

Gene Turner being released from prison on October 21st, 2020

If you’ve been on the property since before DSNM, you’ll know who I’m talking about. Victims Notification Services (VNS) sent out messages today saying Gene was to be released from prison tomorrow under ‘Compassionate Release’ and will be residing in Rodeo.

Hi,

This is an image of NGC 7814, also known as the Little Sombrero Galaxy due to its resemblance to the larger and more famous M104 (The Sombrero Galaxy). It is an edge on spiral galaxy about 40 million light years away in the constellation Pegasus. It is about 60,000 light years in diameter, the same size as M104, but looks smaller since it is further away. I always think of “danger Will Robinson” when I see this galaxy since it reminds me of the space ship in the original series.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.

Hi,

This is an image of 47 Tucanae. It is a globular cluster about 13,000 light years away in the constellation Tucana. It is about 120 light years in diameter and is the second brightest globular cluster next to Omega Centauri, and has a bright dense core. I had to blend in 30 second exposures to get the core to resolve.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.

Hi all

PM 1-333 is a small planetary nebula that lies about a half a degree northwest of the bright variable star Mu Cephei.  Bright is an understatement when it comes to Mu Cephei; it is a red giant about
100,000 times more luminous than the sun.  It is sometimes referred to as Hershel's Garnet Star  (S&T, November 2020, p. 56), although it appears more of a golden yellow in this image:

Probably a little of both but since it is second only to Omega Centauri, it must be pretty big.
