NGC253 The Sculptor Galaxy

I am pleased to present the recent data acquired from SkySlab on the visual spectrum for NGC 253, also called the Sculptor Galaxy,  also known as the Silver Coin or Silver Dollar Galaxy. This is described as an intermediate spiral galaxy and is the brightest member of the Sculptor group of galaxies, which is grouped [...] Read More


M17 – The Swan Nebula

I'm pleased to present the M17, the Swan Nebula captured through SkySlab imaging systems. M17 is an interesting nebula because we are viewing it side-on from our vantage point.  In other words, the nebula looks like a swan from the side, but if we were to take a trip in our imaginary faster than light [...] Read More


NGC6523 The Lagoon Nebula

This project is an interesting one because the finished product will require a compilation of many different regions of the sky.  For now, I've finished the central region of NGC6523 and the remaining outlying regions will take a year to finish (I suspect).  The Lagoon Nebula (catalogued as Messier 8 or M8, and as NGC [...] Read More


Processing a Typical Astrophotograph

For this example, I'm using a recent set of shots I took to put together a final shot for NGC6853 (the Dumbbell Nebula).  A friend of mine asked a while ago: Q: 'So are you compositing multiple shots together or taking differing shots across spectrums? Quite curious how this works'.  I didn't like my answer [...] Read More


TheSkyX TPoint and Periodic Error Corrections

Two quick things, well, not quick...it's taken a month to get to this point:  TheSkyX is software that controls the robotic mounts in SkySlab (whatever model it is at the time).  Tpoint is how that software pin-points targets in the vastness of interstellar space. There's a lot more to it and some complex configuration and [...] Read More
