Clouds of Andromeda

Clouds of Andromeda

What are those red clouds surrounding the Andromeda galaxy? This galaxy, M31, is often imaged by planet Earth-based astronomers. As the nearest large spiral galaxy, it is a familiar sight with dark dust lanes, bright yellowish core, and spiral arms traced by clouds of bright blue stars. A mosaic of well-exposed broad and narrow-band image data, this colorful portrait of our neighboring island universe offers strikingly unfamiliar features though, faint reddish clouds of glowing ionized hydrogen gas in the same wide field of view. These ionized hydrogen clouds surely lie in the foreground of the scene, well within our Milky Way Galaxy. They are likely associated with the pervasive, dusty interstellar cirrus clouds scattered hundreds of light-years above our own galactic plane. via NASA go.nasa.gov/2mbN8ce

Comet C/2016 R2 in Taurus

Here is an image of comet C/2016 R2 taken last evening in the constellation Taurus. The star Gamma Tauri was causing some interference on my focal reducer that I didn’t pick up on until the images were processed, you can see some of the noise and light ring below and to the left of the comet. The comet is near its closest approach to Earth and near its maximum brightness. Tech Specs: Meade 12” LX90, Celestron CGEM-DX mount, Canon 6D stock camera, ISO 3200, 18 x 60 seconds using Backyard EOS with darks, flats and bias frames, guided using an Orion 60mm guide scope with an attached ZWO ASI290MC camera. Image Date: January 6, 2018. Location: The Dark Side Observatory in Weatherly, PA.
