Cosmogazing/astrogazing

Images taken using any of the equipment set ups using scope1 (at home) are at the top grouped according to high (16-24 MP) and low (~0.5-1 MP) resolution, followed by images taken using scope0 (remote observatory). The object title (hover mouse over thumbnail for a pop up), the telescope, and other information are available in the complete path of the filename or within the image coded based on the numbers in the equipment page. For example, scope/1.6.4.5 refers to an image taken at home (scope1) using the Takahashi FS128 flourite doublet apochromat on a Paramount MyT and the QHY163M camera, and "c-sho-hubble" means that the narrowband image is coloured using a SHO mapping (red = S2; green = Ha; blue = O3) and colours are modified further to resemble the Hubble palette. Extensive technical details of the capture can be gotten from my Astrobin. A list of objects I've seen using scope1 is also available.
