[Caldwell Index]

Mike Lancaster captured this image of the Eskimo Nebula on the 8th March 2014. It is a stack of nine 30 second exposures taken with a Mallincam Xtreme X2 camera at AGC2, using an MFR5 focal reducer and Astronomik CLS-CCD filter through a 10" Meade LX200 ACF SCT. The images were stacked, cropped and processed in Nebulosity 3, Photoshop Elements 7 and Astronomy Tools. No guiding or dark frames were used.  Image Copyright: Mike Lancaster.

The following is an image of the Eskimo Nebula (Caldwell 39/NGC 2392) in Gemini and was captured by Adrian Brown on the 19th February 2005. The image is a stacked composite of eighteen 90 second exposures taken at f/10 with a Celestron C11 and ATK-1C combo. Adrian captured 60 minutes worth of raw images but comments 'my drive isnít really good enough for 90 second un-guided exposures and I couldnít use most of the captured images. Still, even with the egg shaped stars itís quite an interesting image. The nebula was quite bright and visible in a 25mm eyepiece, even though the Moon was also in Gemini at the time!'  Image Copyright: Adrian Brown.
