An awful Sun image!

With the seeing and hazy cloud somewhere between awful and atrocious - I managed these, just 60 frames of which i stacked 50.  The only good news being that the clouds got worse after I packed up in disgust!

Reprocessed Crab Nebula Pictures

The Full Moon has been swamping everything for the last few nights so Bizibilder has been re-processing a picture of the Crab Nebula from December. There is far more whispy detail to be seen!  (Both click to enlarge):

Lots and lots of Galaxies

Picture saved with settings embedded.

I’ve labelled a few but there are well over 100 Galaxies in this picture! (It’s black on white to make then easier to see!).  Abell 1367 is the catalogue name of this Galaxy cluster.
