IC410 tadpole nebula 🙃


Recommended Posts

Thats a wonderful image - 31 hours very well spent! Superb processing too.

 

The size of the nebulae we image is something I really struggle to get my head around. We just don't have a "point of reference " to allow us to understand how big 10L.Y's actually is. One that always get me is that the rosette nebula is around 130 LY in diameter. our solar system is (apparently!) 0.00127 L.Ys in diameter.Crazy is right.

 

You've made a beautiful image of a very big thing.

Thank you so much! The cloudy nights started as soon as I had the amount of data I wanted, funny! Wow, I didn’t know that! That is ridiculously cool and so ‘wow’!!!!!! I didn’t know that the rosette was so big! 
 

thank you for your lovely comments 🥰

Beautiful and fascinating Hannah. Close to 60 trillion miles....bonkers!   If you consider you would take close to 20 years to fly to the sun travelling at the speed of your average passenger aircraft, you'd definitely need your flight socks for a trip along tadpole way!     Gary😃

Nicely processed! A great example of concentrating on one target and doing it well👍.

Thanks Paul! I try to stick to one target at a time and give as much as I can 🙂

That's a wonderful image Hannah & very nice subtle processing. 31 hours of exposure in the UK is outstanding ! 

My understanding is 1 light year is equivalent to 5.88 trillion miles........crazy ! 

Paul

Thank you Paul!! It was an incredible run of clear nights! Oh my goodness it’s just so huge and I cannot comprehend it all 🥲!!
