The Pacman nebula imaged last night.

Imaged with the Altair Astro 60 EDF and Starlight Express SXV H9-C. 10x300secs + 4x600secs.

NGC 281, IC 11 or Sh2-184 is a bright emission nebula and part of an H II region in the northern constellation of Cassiopeia and is part of the Milky Way's Perseus Spiral Arm. This 20×30 arcmin sized nebulosity is also associated with open cluster IC 1590, several Bok globules (Bok globules are isolated and relatively small dark nebulae, containing dense cosmic dust and gas from which star formation may take place - the black blob in the middle of the nebula is one such) and the multiple star, B 1. It is over 9000 light years distant.

The double cluster in Perseus imaged last night. Two lovely clusters at a distance of 7,500 light years.

Imaged with the Altair Astro 60 EDF and Starlight Express SXV H9-C. 15x30secs.

M81, the great spiral and M82, the Cigar galaxy, imaged last night. At a a distance of 11.74 million light years the two galaxies are interacting. The Cigar Galaxy is a site of intense starburst activity, believed to be triggered by this interaction.

Imaged with the Altair Astro 60 EDF and Starlight Express SXV H9-C. 10x300secs.
