M17, the Swan or Omega Nebula. Imaged from Joshua Tree National Partk with my FSQ106N and ST-2000xm. 100 minutes of luminance, unbinned.
This is 3 hours of IC 405 and IC 410 I shot at Joshua Tree National Park when I had my old stl-11000. This is 9 20 minute frames od Ha, unbinned and self guided with the stl-11000.

The Horsehead Nebula, 100 minutes of unbinned luminance imaged from Joshua Tree National Park with an FSQ106N and ST2000xm camera.
CED 214, a large emission nebula in the constellation of Cepheus. TOA130 with flattener and ST2000xm camera. Imaged on September 19, 2007, from Redlands, Ca. 230 minutes of unbinned Ha data.
NGC 6888, the Crescent Nebula in Cygnus--a planetary nebula surrounding a Wolf-Rayet star. A planetary nebula is a shell of gas that has been shed by a star late in its lifetime It's distance is about 5,000 light years. Imaged on June 11, 2007 from Redlands, Ca., with my TOA130 with reducer/NJP mount and ST2000xm camera with Astrodon Ha filter. 160 minutes unbinned Ha filter only. Hopefully I can capture some SII and OIII data to make a narrowband color image this summer.
