Asteroid Myrrha in Leo Triplet Animation

"381 Myrrha is a very large main-belt asteroid that was discovered by French astronomer Auguste Charlois on January 10, 1894, in Nice. It is classified as a C-type asteroid and is probably composed of carbonaceous material.

Photometric observations of this asteroid at the Oakley Observatory in Terre Haute, Indiana during 2006 gave a light curve with a period of 6.572 ± 0.002 hours and a brightness variation of 0.34 ± 0.05 in magnitude.

10µ radiometric data collected from Kitt Peak in 1975 gave a diameter estimate of 126 km. The occultation of Alhena (γ Geminorum) by Myrrha was observed in Japan and China on January 13, 1991, allowing the size and shape of Myrrha to be clarified."

Asteroid Myrrha in Leo Triplet

I accidentally captured asteroid Myrrha last weekend while capturing Leo Triplet. This is the first time I captured an asteroid. While I was checking the light frames using the Blink tool in PixInsight, I realized something moving in the middle of the images.
It wasn't easy to identify the object. I tried Astrometrica but couldn't manage to work it. So, I manually calculated the location of the object in Stellarium and using this information I found it on the MPC database.

77-Pane Moon Mosaic - Reprocessed

Reprocessed version of the Moon Mosaic I took over a year ago. 
Some defects (blur and tone differences between parts) are corrected in this version.

IC1396 - Elephant Trunk (in Yellow)

"The Elephant's Trunk nebula is a concentration of interstellar gas and dust within the much larger ionized gas region IC 1396 located in the constellation Cepheus about 2,400 light years away from Earth. The piece of the nebula shown here is the dark, dense globule IC 1396A; it is commonly called the Elephant's Trunk nebula because of its appearance at visible light wavelengths, where there is a dark patch with a bright, sinuous rim. The bright rim is the surface of the dense cloud that is being illuminated and ionized by a very bright, massive star (HD 206267) that is just to the west of IC 1396A. (In the Figure above, the massive star is just to the left of the edge of the image.) The entire IC 1396 region is ionized by the massive star, except for dense globules that can protect themselves from the star's harsh ultraviolet rays.

The Elephant's Trunk nebula is now thought to be a site of star formation, containing several very young (less than 100,000 yr) stars that were discovered in infrared images in 2003. Two older (but still young, a couple of million years, by the standards of stars, which live for billions of years) stars are present in a small, circular cavity in the head of the globule. Winds from these young stars may have emptied the cavity.

The combined action of the light from the massive star ionizing and compressing the rim of the cloud, and the wind from the young stars shifting gas from the center outward lead to very high compression in the Elephant's Trunk nebula. This pressure has triggered the current generation of protostars."

Bence fotoğraf işleme konusunda gayet iyisiniz. Öyle ki, el değmemiş, yalın doğayı seven ben bile işlenmiş bir fotoğrafı beğenebiliyorum. Yani fotolarda zorlama yok. 😉
