Supernova Remnant in Vela
Vela SNR - GUM OIII and Ha Nebulae  in Vela   

The Gum Nebula (Gum 12) is a nebula that covers approx 40 in the constellations Vela. It lies approx 1300 lightyears  from the Earth.
These thin strands of nebulosity are the remains of a star which ended its life as an enormous supernova explosion around 11,000 years ago.
It got its name after its discoverer, the Australian astronomer Colin Stanley Gum(1924–1960).

Centaurus A Galaxy
Centaurus A Galaxy - NGC5128 

NGC5128 is one of the most interesting and peculiar galaxies in the sky, and is a strong source of radio radiation (therefore the designation Centaurus A); it is actually the nearest radio galaxy. It is of intermediate type between elliptical and disk (spiral) galaxies: The main body has all characteristics of a large elliptical, but a pronounced dust belt is superimposed well over the center, forming a disk plane around this galaxy. What we may very well be viewing is the early results of an giant elliptical merging with a much small spiral structure – creating a stunning halo. This adds a nice example in the local universe to the growing evidence that galaxy halos are built up from the accretion of dwarf satellite galaxies.

M4 and Antares Nebula Mosaic
M O S A I C out of 2 Images
Globular Clusters M4, NGC6144, Emission Nebula Sh2-9,
Reflection Nebulas VdB104 and  IC4606 in Scorpius over Antares. 


IC4606 can be seen on the middle of the left part of the image. It surrounds the bright star Antares (left bottom of the image), known as the "Heart of the Scorpion".  IC4606 is a yellow reflection nebula reflecting the light of Antares.

The more distant globular NGC 6144 (middle of image) is a 10th magnitude globular star cluster that lies just to the north of it's famous neighbor, the globular cluster M4. NGC 6144 lies 33,000 light years distant (three times farther away than the more nearby M4).
At that distance it also appears over three times smaller, 6.2' in diameter.
M4 is the bright globular cluster in the right at the bottom. The reason why M4 is bright and large is simply due to its distance. At only 7,200 light years, it's one of the closest globular clusters to Earth.
The bright star on the right top side of the photograph is Sigma Scorpii. Surrounding σ Scorpii is the blue reflection nebula Ced 130 and red emission nebula Sh 2-9. (in the top right)

IC4628 Reflection Nebula IC4606 (Yellow), Globular Cluster NGC6144, Part of Reflection Nebula IC4605 (Blue) , and the area North of Antares  (The bright star in the top middle).
Antares is about 600 light years away. It is a first magnitude star 15 times more massive than the Sun, and tens of thousands of time more luminous.This star is about 700 times the diameter of the Sun. If Antares were to replace the Sun in the solar system, both the Earth and Mars would be inside the atmosphere of the star. At its cool surface, tiny solid particles begin to appear, made from traces of heavier elements formed inside the star. In this image the tiny dust grains drift away, reflecting Antares' yellowish light and making the wispy nebula that seems to envelop the moribund star, soon to be a supernova. In the background is a globular cluster, NGC 6144, over 30,000 light years away.

IC4628
Emission Nebula IC4628 the Prawn Nebula, Cr316 
(Use mouseover for Annotations)

The nebula IC 4628 in the constellation of Scorpius is a HII region filled with gas and dark dust.The nebula can be found just north of NGC 6231 and south of Antares, in the tail of Scorpius.
IC4628, also called the Prawn Nebula is around 250 light-years across, covering an area of the sky four times that of the full Moon. The nebula is also named Gum 56, after the Australian astronomer Colin Gum, who published a catalogue of HII regions.

Over the last few million years this region of sky has formed many stars, both individually and in clusters. There is a large scattered star cluster named
Collinder 316 which is visible in the lower right middle of this image.

Lynds Dark Neula LDN1235 Extende Red Emission Nebula - Molecular Cloud

122 x 6 Minutes exposure RGB with QHY8 on
C14 Hyperstar 675mm f/2
in Ebreichsdorf/Austria August 18th/19th/20th/21th 2012.

VdB149, VdB150
are reflection nebulae visible in the constellation Cepheus.
This very faint nebulae in Cepheus are a challenge even for Hyperstar with OSC camera. The VdB150 nebula is the blue nebula at the top, while the other blue one on the bottom is VdB149. The large dust nebula is catalogued as LBN 535. On the right the PGC 67671 galaxy is visible through the dust that is absorbing its light and making yellowish.

The seventh magnitude star HD 210615 orange, visible south of VdB149, is not part of the region.
LDN 1235 is probably a so-called red emission nebula, a cloud that is placed at high galactic latitudes which becomes visible through the interstellar radiation field, with a low surface brightness and therefore looking dark when viewed in the band of visible light.

in Ebreichsdorf/Austria August 12th/13th/14th/15th 2012.

SH2-157 (Sharpless 157 )
The nebula is located in the western part of the constellation Cassiopeia, on the border with Cepheus. Sh2-157 can not be observed optically, therefore neither a pair of binoculars or an amateur telescope are able to show it, it can be reflected only in a long-exposure photograph. It shows a large and faint nebulosity widespread, with brighter regions in the center and a large arc to the north. In the background are rich star fields, on which stands, in a northwesterly direction, the open cluster NGC 7510, well observable with binoculars.

VdB152 - For more details click on image
           VdB152 Reflection Nebula, PK111.0+11.6 Planetary Nebula

63 x 6 minutes exposure RGB with QHY8 on
C14 Hyperstar 675mm f/2
in Ebreichsdorf/Austria July  2012.

Described as a dusty curtain or ghostly apparition, mysterious reflection nebula vdB 152 really is very faint. It lies about 1400 light-years away, along the northern Milky Way in the royal constellation Cepheus. Near the edge of a large molecular cloud, pockets of cosmic dust in the region block light from background stars or scatter light from the embedded bright star (mid-right) giving parts of the nebula a characteristic blue color. Ultraviolet light from the star is also thought to cause a dim reddish luminescence in the nebular dust. Though stars do form in molecular clouds, this star seems to have only accidentally wandered into the area, as its measured velocity through interstellar space is very different from the cloud’s velocity. This deep telescopic image spans about 7 light-years at the estimated distance of vdB 152.

This images were the first made with the New Hyperstar on my C14.
To eliminate the ugly spikes introduced by the cables of the CCD camera i built a device which keeps the cabling precisely in a way that
ALL SPIKES are eliminated! 
In addition i used right angle plugs for the power and USB cable. The original cables of the QHY8 also introduce spikes
