The first album cover below shows the Dumbbell Nebula (M27) from a bright suburban sky location. Sky glow is rather dramatic from my balcony overlooking a parking lot filled with sodium vapor street lamps. I used a 92mm refractor, a Canon 550D DSLR, and an Orion Sky Glow filter to capture the image. I captured 40 sub frames each having an exposure time of 25 seconds at ISO 200. This was my first attempt to image M27 so I plan on increasing the exposure time, ISO and number of sub-frames next time.
Please click on any of the album cover images below to reach the entire collection of images for the planet or moon shown. For example clicking on the Jupiter album cover takes one to 3 separate collections of images captured between 2010 and 2014. Clicking on the 2012-2013 collection of images opens up every image I've taken of Jupiter between August 30 2012 and May 1 2013. Each of these images may be clicked on to reach a larger version of the image together with a more detailed description.
