Image of various Nebulae taken from St. John's, Newfoundland.
Photographed by Tim Caruk - August to November 2012

 
 

Image of the  "Rosette Nebula", which is located to the left of the constellation Orion, in the constellation Monoceros. It is about 5200 light years away from us and is an area of new star formation. the enbedded star cluster NGC 2244 is easily visible in binoculars, however the nebula can only be glimpsed in very dark skies as a faint glowing cloud about  twice the size of the full moon. I took this image on November 18, 2012 through a 115mm Dialyte Astrograph telescope designed by David Caruk using a modified Nikon D5000.  The total exposure time was about 2hrs.
