Abell 39 (PN A66 39, PK 047+42.1 and others) is a nearly spherical planetary nebula located approximately 6,800 light-years away in Hercules.

 

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1

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

 

360 minutes total exposure – 6 hours

 

Imaged June 15th, 16th and 17th, 2017 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.

"Cute" galaxies, Dan (as my sci-fi/fantasy mind conjures up visions of deadly world-eating organisms living in those "cute" galaxies )!


And LOL on Stan's comments on color! I've seen a few of his comments and he actually crossed my mind as I  looked at your image!


I currently have no plans of attending AIC. I'll let you know if things change.

Arp 274 consists of NGC 5679 (VV 458, NGC 5679B, MCG+01-37-035 and others), the largest galaxy at the left (east), MCG+01-37-036 (NGC 5679C and others), the small left of NGC 5679 and MCG+01-37-034 (NGC 5679A and others), the galaxy to the right of NGC 5679. The trio of galaxies, part of Arp’s Double Galaxies with Connecting Arms class, are located approximately 400 million light-years away in Virgo.

 

NGC 5674 (UGC 9369 and others) is a Seyfert 1 galaxy on the right side of the image. It is located approximately 350 million light-years away.

 

The colored streak below NGC 5674 is asteroid 483 Seppina. I managed to capture it on the last night of imaging.

Thanks for looking. A lot of these arps are like that. They’re fairly small and would require a massive amount of RGB (and/or a much larger telescope) to pull a little more color. I await the Stan, “this would have been better with just luminance” comment to come in.

Arp 274 consists of NGC 5679 (VV 458, NGC 5679B, MCG+01-37-035 and others), the largest galaxy at the left (east), MCG+01-37-036 (NGC 5679C and others), the small left of NGC 5679 and MCG+01-37-034 (NGC 5679A and others), the galaxy to the right of NGC 5679. The trio of galaxies, part of Arp’s Double Galaxies with Connecting Arms class, are located approximately 400 million light-years away in Virgo. 

 

NGC 5674 (UGC 9369 and others) is a Seyfert 1 galaxy on the right side of the image. It is located approximately 350 million light-years away.

 

The colored streak below NGC 5674 is asteroid 483 Seppina. I managed to capture it on the last night of imaging.

 

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1

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

 

360 minutes total exposure – 6 hours

 

Imaged over five nights in May, 2017 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 Dan

Not to use Mark Hansen's name in vain, but his use of Labcolor in Photoshop does wonders in enhancing the color signal. I’m attaching the file he sent me.

Bernard,

 

Thanks for looking. A lot of these arps are like that. They’re fairly small and would require a massive amount of RGB (and/or a much larger telescope) to pull a little more color. I await the Stan, “this would have been better with just luminance” comment to come in.

Nice detail in these small galaxies. They could use a little more color but the detail is quite nice.
