Jim Burnell CCD Images

New Images from Jim Burnell using his his SBIG STL1100M CCD Camera and his Vixen VC200L which he says ..." has an amazingly flat and largely unvignetted field that performs beautifully with this camera".

Jim Burnell — NGC 4038 & 4039: Antennae Galaxies
The Antennae Galaxies NGC4038 and NGC4039 in Corvus. This image is a stack of 22 thirty second exposures using an SXV-H9 CCD camera on a Vixen ED114SS 114mm f/5.3 refractor. The image was stacked using AIP4WIN. It has been resampled down from its original size of 1392 x 1040.
  Jim Burnell — The Horsehead and Flame Nebulae
The Horsehead and Flame Nebulae in Orion. This image is a stack of 32 thirty second exposures using an SXV-H9 CCD camera on a Vixen ED114SS 114mm f/5.3 refractor. The image was stacked using AIP4WIN. It has been resampled down from its original size of 1392 x 1040.
  Jim Burnell — M51: Whirlpool Galaxy
Vixen R200SS f/4 Rich-Field Newtonian was used for this image.
8 x 8min exposure.
It has been resampled down from its original size.
Jim Burnell — M108: spiral galaxy in Ursa Major   Jim Burnell — NGC 4565: large bright edge-on spiral in Coma Jim Burnell — NGC 3372: Eta Carinae nebula
Jim Burnell — M108: spiral galaxy in Ursa Major
The galaxy M108 in Ursa Major. This image is a stack of 65 sixty second exposures using a Vixen R200SS 8" f/4 Newtonian with a coma corrector. The image was calibrated, defect corrected, stacked and gradient corrected. This was followed by 5 iterations of Richardson-Lucy deconvolution, then a simple linear stretch was performed, all using AIP4WIN. This image has been resampled down from its original size of 1260x980

Jim Burnell — NGC 3372: Eta Carinae nebula
NGC3372, the Eta Carina nebula. This image is a stack of 40 thirty second exposures using an SXV-H9 CCD camera on a Vixen ED114SS 114mm f/5.3 refractor. The image was calibrated, defect corrected and stacked and 15 iterations of Richardson-Liucy deconvolution was applied using AIP4WIN. It has been resampled down from its original size of 1392 x 1040
