The orion nebula region as captured from my backyard in Austin, Texas last Saturday night.  I had been waiting for that perfect moonless night, free of clouds, but it just wasn't happening.  The moon was 2/3 full and about 20 degrees away.  I couldn't run very long exposures or high iso, but still I think this is my best effort so far.  Still a work in progress, but getting there.  Imaged with a CLS_CCD filtered canon 7D and 100-400mm lens at 400mm riding piggy back on Meade 8" LX200…

Celestial Emissions - Eta Carina Nebula by Glowing regions of gas in our galaxy are known as emission nebulae. Imaging these nebulae through filters that only allow the passage of very specific wavelengths of light produces this type of image.

Light Echo via the Hubble Space Telescope. The red star at the centre of the eyeball-like feature is an unusual erupting supergiant called V838 Monocerotis, located about 20,000 light-years away in the winter constellation Monoceros (the Unicorn).

Oh, such a beautiful purple and blue nebulae. I need to be careful that we don't go too 'deep space'. It's more sky and stars. But still, this is nice.
