Rex Parker PhD -- Astronomy and Astrophotography of the Deep Sky
HOW THESE IMAGES WERE CREATED: These photographs of "light matter" in the celestial sphere were obtained with specialized astronomy equipment and software. All images were processed by Rex A Parker in central New Jersey using CCD Stack, Maxim-DL, and Photoshop CS5 software. Original data was generated by RAP in NJ using a 12.5" AGO telescope and Paramount-MX along with an SBIG ST-10 CCD. Images with "Mt Lemmon" in title were processed by RAP from original data provided by Adam Block in the "Advanced Imaging Workshop" 2013 & 2014 at Mt Lemmon Sky Center AZ, using the 32" Schulman RC telescope and SBIG 16803 CCD. Images with "SSRO" in title were processed by RAP from original data from Star Shadows Remote Observatory at Cerro Tololo, Chile using a 16" RCOS telescope and FLI 16803 CCD.
