Astronomical Picture Galleries

The image galleries listed below were obtained with an SBIG ST-7E CCD and a Meade 10-inch LX200 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. The observing location is LONG = 110d 56' 30" W, LAT = +32d 26' 00" (Tucson, AZ USA). Images were acquired and processed using MaxIm DL/CCD V2.11. Deep sky images employed an f/6.3 focal reducer yielding an effective focal length of 64 inches and north is at top, east is to the left in all pictures. Eyepiece projection with an effective focal length of 580 inches was utilized for planetary images and the CCD was binned 2x2. All celestial coordinates are for epoch J2000.0.
