My Rho

Posted By August R. Orlandi

Here a picture that Robert asked for of Rho.
All I did from the original was to lighten and
reduce the original number of pixcels down to 100
and made it a 4X6.
Hope you like it.

M-31 and Surprise

Posted By August R. Orlandi

I know another M-31 shot,Yes but the surprise to me was I
caught Comet 2P/Encke also.
The only other reason for posting this I have yet to see
anyone else post one of the comet.
The photo was taken on 10-17-03 with a AP155mm scope,
field flattern and reducer,Pentax 6X7 camera,with
Fuji NPH 400 film and a 45 minute exposure.
This is a low resolution scan with no processing
done to it,just a raw scan

M31 and Surprise

Posted By August R. Orlandi

Forgot to mention the bright blue object in the upper
right is the comet.
Also the vignetting is common with this set up.

NGC 4038 & NGC 4027

Posted By August R. Orlandi

NGC 4038 or better known as The Antennea or Ring-Tail Galaxys.
Also when you photography this field you get an extra treat
NGC 4027.
This photo was taken with an: AP 155mm refactor using a field
flatteren with a Pentax 6X7 camera on Fuji Provia 400 film.
Exposure time was 45 minutes. The film was scaned with a Espon
3200 scanner at 3200 dpi then reduced in Photo Shop to 200 dpi
for posting. This is a raw image scan,nothing has been done to it except reduce it size.
My location is 42 degrees North so this is some what low in the Southern Sky,with some light pollution.
The seening on the night this was taken was about 7.5 to 8
on a scale of 1-10 with 10 beening perfect.
Comments welcome.

NGC 2403

Posted By August R. Orlandi

The 4 images NGC 2403,M-51,M-81 & M-82,M-101 were taken on
4-13-04. These were all 45 minute exposures on Fuji 400 Provia.
All images are the original scans except for the croping and
the lower dpi. The images were scanned with an Espon 3200
scanner.
These pictures were taken with an: AP 155mm scope,field flattener,Pentax 6X7 camera.
Conditions were windy and the seeing was about 7.5 to 8.
NGC 2403 is a fairly bright galaxy 8.4 located in Camelopardalis. Easily seen in even a small scope.
Comments welcome.
