The first images are up!!!

Not far from completing construction of the building, it's at the operational stage to at least be doing some serious imaging. Praise God, I got THREE clear nights in a row with no moon and no clouds!

I'm still learning the new full-versions of the programs that run the cameras, plus I have purchased a new planetary camera for our solar-system beauties out there.

So far this week, I have captured and processed hours worth of photons coming from the bright and grand old lady of the solar system, Saturn, plus the distant, faint, immense and beautiful Eagle Nebula, Trifid Nebula, Lagoon Nebula and the Southern Pinwheel Galaxy.

I urge you to go have a look at my galleries (http://www.asignobservatoryii.com/apps/photos/), that are now building up.

Have a great week!!

P.S. I'm not sure what's going on with the colours, but they look great on my screen. however, as soon as I upload them to a hosting site or even my own website, the colours are a little more saturated for some reason.

1. Trifid Nebula

2. Eagle Nebula

3. Southern Pinwheel Galaxy (my file image looks blue - the uploaded/hosted image looks purple... am I the only one?)

4. Lagoon Nebula
