User images taken with SXVR-H9 cameras.


The 'Cone' and 'Foxfur' nebulae - Rick Krejci

29 x 4mins with an H-alpha filter, Plus RGB with a Takahashi Epsilon 160. A superbly dramatic image of a faint and extensive nebulous region in Monoceros.


The 'Leo Trio' of M65, M66 and NGC 3628 - Rick Krejci.

An LRGB image with a Tak. Epsilon 160. Only 30 minutes Luminance, 10 minutes each of RGB.


A very 'deep' shot of M51, showing the faint tidal extensions - Rick Krejci

Only 58 minutes total exposure time with the Epsilon 160!



The 'Rosette', using an H-alpha + RGB technique with an FS60 refractor - Rick Krejci



M45 with the Epsilon 160 - Rick Krejci



The region of M42 using LRGB with an FS60 refractor and Astronomik filters - Rick Krejci


A superb colour image of the Horse-Head region, taken by Ian King  with a 60mm refractor and a combination of H-alpha and tri-colour filters - Rick Krejci


Some sample full-resolution and binned 2x2 images:

These pictures were taken from the UK in heavily light-polluted skies just outside London. A Takahashi FSQ106 4" F5 fluorite refractor mounted on a Celestron CI700 mount was used. The guide telescope was an inexpensive 70mm Chinese-made refractor. No pollution filters, dark frames or flat fields were used with any of these images!


M33 - A single 10 minute exposure. 


NGC 281 - The 'PacMan' - a single 20 minute exposure through a 10nM Ha filter.


The 'Pelican' in Cygnus - a 10 minute exposure with a 10nM Ha filter - binned 2x2.


The 'Cocoon' in Cygnus - a 10 minute exposure with a 10nM Ha filter - binned 2x2.



The Cone nebula and S Monocerotis - a 20 minute exposure with a 10nM Ha filter -binned 2x2.


One-shot colour samples from the SXV-H9C:

An excellent image of M27, taken by Alan Chen from his drive in Orlando, USA. 

An exposure of 134 minute total (67x2) through an IDAS filter at f/5.6 on his 12"SCT.


Another image from Alan Chen. M1 (the Crab nebula) taken with a total exposure of 75 minutes at F6.3 on a 12" SCT.



A 10 minute exposure of M42, using the FSQ106 and an Idas light pollution filter.
