The HH objects in the NGC1999 region

Just south (to the right) of the great Orion Nebula lies the small reflection nebula NGC1999 surrounded by strings of Herbig Haro (HH) Objects. This view shows a bright Orion Nebula region and also the very faint dusty NGC1999 region. High Dynamic Range (HDR) techniques have been used to compress the dynamic range. 3 stacks made with 30, 120 and 600 second exposures (488 in total) with a total integration time of 24.6 hours. The stacks have been combined using HDRCombination in Pixinsight and further processsed with HDRMultiscaletransform and other processing steps.

Total Eclipse: Second Contact Baily's Beads through to Third Contact Baily's Beads

Total Eclipse: Second Contact Baily's Beads through to Third Contact Baily's Beads

Taken at the August 21st 2017 Total Eclipse, this is a composite of ten short exposure shots of Baily's Beads at second contact, ten at third contact, with a mid eclipse shot of the inner corona and prominences (1/125s f/8). The equipment was a Canon 70D camera at ISO 200, with a 400mm lens and 1.4x extender (560mm focal length). I used Lightroom to initially process each image and then aligned and stacked them in Photoshop CC to produce the composite. I feel it shows the development of Baily's beads and the Diamonf Ring at the moment of totality and at its end. The mid totality shot features good prominences and shows the corona and the Sun's magnetic field. In one composite it shows many of the Sun's best features visible only in a solar eclipse.
