    Presenting images of interesting astronomical subjects obtained with modest, commercially available telescopes and CCD cameras that are optimized for taking long exposures of low light-level subjects. Separate black and white exposures through clear, red, green and blue filters are digitally combined and stretched, using Adobe Photoshop and other image processing software, to create full color pictures.

    Earlier images, near the page bottom, were exposed from suburban, San Jose, California location through moderately high light pollution with a 12-inch Dall-Kirkham cassegrain telescope.

    Most images were produced through the remotely controlled half-meter Ritchey-Chretien telescope at the Blackbird Observatory. Some southern hemisphere images were also acquired from a remotely operated observatory located near Melbourne, Australia with a 12-inch RCOS telescope. A few pictures, noted as NOAO, were acquired with the 20-inch Ritchey-Chretien telescope at the National Optical Astronomy Observatory Visitor’s Center on Kitt Peak, Arizona.
