M95

M95

There are relatively few images of M95 posted on the internet, perhaps because it is faint and difficult to process. Captured at Deep Sky West in New Mexico with over 21 hours of total exposure.

M97-M108

M97-M108

This is an interesting example of a galaxy and planetary nebula in the same field. The halo surrounding the owl nebula is faint oxygen that is only revealed with very long exposure times.

Exposure time 49.5 hours. Photographed at Sierra Remote Observatory. Data acquired by Bret Charles, John Kasianowicz, Daniele Malleo, Jose Mtanous, Rick Stevenson and Scott Johnson.
