I have ben putting some images up on the IFAS FaceBook page but omitted to put them here also - I know that some here do not go anywhere near FaceBook. Some of the images are old data reworked while I sit at home under cloudy skies. This particular crop is perhaps now a favourite of mine - I am extremely happy at how I improved my processing since first getting this data in Sept. 2018.....this image is a big improvement on my effort one and a half years ago. Unfortunately you cannot see it in high resolution here....but I hope you can still enjoy....

Brendan.

I am very glad you decided to return to this image, Brendan.
You have reproduced superb colours of the Pacman Nebula in Cassiopeia.
I'm racking my brain here.
Aren't they Bok Globules in your image?

As you know already, we have terrible high and hazy cloud over here in Dublin, Ireland.
We definitely require a good amount of rain.
After that the clear blue skies might return.
Wait till you see, we could have water drought in the summer.

Happy Easter, Kinch

Aubrey.

Yes Aubrey.......see this from Wikipedia:
NGC 281, IC 11 or Sh2-184 is a bright emission nebula and part of an H II region in the northern constellation of Cassiopeia and is part of the Milky Way's Perseus Spiral Arm. It is also associated with open cluster IC 1590, several Bok globules and the multiple star, B 1.

Happy Easter to you too Aubrey & to all here.....staying at home might be easier if we could still see the stars....I hope some of you can. I can .....but only if the clouds move off, which they have not done in ages :-(   


I'll put up another image up here now - this of course is M1 - again reworked data from Jan. 2019 this time. It is basically Narrow Band data with very litle RGB - and again, I am very happy with the improvement I have made in my processing this time around.

Brendan.

Hi Brendan,

Very many thanks for uploading your images to this site because I don't use Facebook. Both images are beautiful, as are the ones on your website. 

Keep them coming, and best wishes for Easter,

Darren.

Thanks Darren.......I wouldn't blame you for staying away from FaceBook. I went 'in' initially to look at some images from others that did not have web sites.....then just got dragged in further. Sad...isn't it!

I find that having a webs site is the best way to show the images - in higher resolution for those looking in with computer screens......but I suppose most people use smartphones for just about everything now.

I have recently bought a very high resolution monitor (3840x2160) and it really really helps now when I am working on my images.......it has helped me improve (I hope). I think it makes me try bring out the detail that was always there.

Brendan.

You're more than welcome Brendan. Oddly enough, I have never had a Facebook page. I'm not against social media sites. I use several for a variety of reasons, but I just never got started on Facebook. 

It's always nice to get some new equipment, especially when it can be used for astronomy.  

So, I'm looking forward to seeing more of what what you do with the new monitor.

All the best,

Darren.
