New on 500px : The Orion Nebula and the Running Man Nebula by JoelTonyan by JoelTonyan

The Orion Nebula and the Running Man Nebula. This shot is a labor of love. All told, I’d estimate 20 hours of work went into producing this image.

Taken with a TMB92L, Hutech-modified Canon T3i DSLR, Orion SSAG autoguider and 50mm guidescope, and Celestron AVX mount. Consists of 31 300-second light frames, 25 25-second light frames, and 15 5-second light frames, plus darks, flats, and bias frames. Captured with BackyardEOS, stacked in DeepSkyStacker, and processed in Photoshop. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1PkaD9T

New on 500px : lost in the stars II by DeSelby by DeSelby

“The cluster core radius is about 8 light years and tidal radius is about 43 light years. The cluster contains over 1,000 statistically confirmed members, although this figure excludes unresolved binary stars. It is dominated by young, hot blue stars, up to 14 of which can be seen with the naked eye depending on local observing conditions. The arrangement of the brightest stars is somewhat similar to Ursa Major and Ursa Minor. The total mass contained in the cluster is estimated to be about 800 solar masses.

The cluster contains many brown dwarfs, which are objects with less than about 8% of the Sun’s mass, not heavy enough for nuclear fusion reactions to start in their cores and become proper stars. They may constitute up to 25% of the total population of the cluster, although they contribute less than 2% of the total mass. Astronomers have made great efforts to find and analyse brown dwarfs in the Pleiades and other young clusters, because they are still relatively bright and observable, while brown dwarfs in older clusters have faded and are much more difficult to study.” (wikipedia) via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1Xj55hR
