NGC 7293, The Helix Nebula in Aquarius
My second test image in the newly constructed Wye Mountain Observatory.

Right Ascension = 22 : 29 : 38.35 (h:m:s), Declination = -20 : 50 : 13.2 (deg:m:s)
Magnitude =n/a, Size = 12x10 arc minutes

NGC 7293, The Helix Nebula in Aquarius, color image.

This color image was composed from several months and several nights imaging. Sorry but I will try and have the particulars later. This final was edited September 18, 2004

NGC 7293, The Helix Nebula in Aquarius, black and white image.

optics: C8    adapter: Fastar    date: 10222003    time: 00:22:00    exposure: 600 seconds
resolution: Full (640x480)reduced to (320x240)   guiding: st4 and Celestron C102 @ f10
acquisition: 2 x 300s Luminance    software: captured with SBIG CCDDOS processed with SBIG CCDOPS v5.21-NT
notes: Autodark added. Softly sharpened and DDP'd in CCDOPS.
These are f1.95 fastar images. This is my second guided image and was only a test, therefore there is much improvement to be made on this one. This was a second light test of my newly built Wye Mountain Observatory.
