Hubble Variable Nebula NGC 2261

Hi, fellows of Cyberspace, today I want to share these astrophotographs that I have taken to NGC 2261 through the Slooh telescope network. These photos are with the Chile Uno telescope.

This object is also known by the names of the Hubble Variable Nebula or Caldwell 46. This variable nebula that is in the constellation of Monoceros, is illuminated by a star that we can not see called R Monocerotis (R Mon). This star is massive, it is located at the southern extremity of the nebula, it is a very young Tauri with about 300,000 years, it can be about ten times the mass of our star the Sun. It is about 2500 years away.

NGC 2261 was photographed for the first time through the Hale telescope at the Palomar Observatory by Edwin Hubble on January 26, 1949. A proposed example for variability is that dust clouds near R Mon periodically block the star's illumination.

Super Blue Blood Moon 2018

Hi, fellows of Cyberspace, today I want to share with you my photos, videos and the experience of seeing a Moon that has taken 150 years for all the following conditions to combine: Super Blue Blood Moon 2018 and during an Eclipse, as you can see the Moon has been very busy.



I ask for your forgiveness because the quality leaves much to be desired, the cameras are not the best and I have had to fight against the wind and the clouds, but it allows you to get an idea of how it was.





The part that I liked the most was the end, the combination of a desert and mountainous landscape illuminated by the first golden rails of the Sun, seeing the p inverted faces of the Moon, while being so close to the horizon offers us the illusion that It is larger than it was, mixing with thin dense, frayed clouds, of a dark gray, gliding in front of the Moon. Giving me the illusion of seeing a gaseous planet.









I will detail equipment that I have used:

3.0 MP web camera with 0.5 reduction focus

Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 18-55 lens

Celestron telescope 114mm LCM, F9



I hope you like it

Alcatel Linkzone 7065 4G LTE

Hi, fellows of Cyberspace, today I want to talk about Alcatel Linkzone 7065 4G LTE and without further ado.

In general, I liked a lot there a couple of things against but it's a good investment, I'll detail.

-It is very easy to transport thanks to its very small size and very lightweight.

-At the aesthetic level, it does not seem to be of the last generation, it can be defined more as a matt black plastic box, which has a good feeling to the touch.



-It comes with four lights, now you will have to remember a series of combinations because depending on the combinations you can give us all kinds of messages. (This can be a bit tedious)
Network Indicator (Red or Blue LED)
Wi-Fi Indicator (Blue LED)
SMS Indicator (Blue LED)
Battery Indicator (Red or Blue LED)

-At the level of connectivity to the 4G LTE network, it is very good

-It is possible that 15 computers are connected, now do not expect that all 15 are using the continuous download (which is the digital distribution of multimedia content)



-It has a RAM of 128 MB and a ROM of 256 MB plus an internal memory of 8 GB but the device is using it but we can use a MicroSD card

-The processor is a Qualcomm MDM9225 the only problem with this is that it is from 2012 even when it is fully compatible does not stop being a little defied for new connections

-The battery will last more than 10 days in standby, now in use with a single computer connected and using it for continuous download of HD content is very difficult to exceed an hour and a half. It is not possible to use it without the battery.



-In comparison with other devices that I have tried, it heats up less but it keeps happening.

-It only allows us to specify at 2.4GHz we can configure if we want 802.11 G or N

-At the level of configurations, we have the following options: MAC filtering, IP filtering, port deviations and DMZ, the latter very basic



-I have achieved these speeds 31.56Mbps download and 20.01Mbps upload.

-We can configure it through the web page is quite easy.


Until next time.

Tarantula Nebula 30 Doradus or NGC 2070


Hello fellows of Cyberspace, today I want to share these astrophotographs that I have taken of NGC 2070 through the network of telescopes of Slooh these photos are with the telescope Canary Four.

The nebula of the Tarantula, also known as 30 Doradus since it is found in the constellation La Dorada or the Golden Fish. This nebula is the largest known nebula in our sky. it is an H II region that is found in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Initially considered a star, in 1751 Nicolas Louis de Lacaille recognized its nature as a nebula, it is considered to be about 170,000 light years. The closest supernova observed since the invention of the telescope, SN 1987A, took place on the outskirts of the Large Magellanic Cloud.

Planetary nebula NGC 2392

Hello fellows of Cyberspace, today I want to share these astrophotographs that I have taken of NGC 2070 through the network of telescopes of Slooh these photos are with the telescope Canary Four.
It also receives the names of Eskimo or Clown nebula, since the photos taken with the Hubble telescope in the year 2000 It seems the face of a person.

It is found, according to authors, about 3000 or 5000 light years away from Earth.

It was discovered by William Herschel on January 17, 1787.

The Orion Nebula M42 or NGC 1976


Hello fellows of Cyberspace, today I want to share these astrophotographs that I have taken of M42 through the network of telescopes of Slooh these photos are with the telescope Canary Two.
This diffuse nebula that is located to the south of Orion's belt is one of the brightest that exist and under optimal conditions can be observed at naked eyes. It is about 1270 light years from the earth and has a diameter of about 24 light years. In ancient documents they refer to it as Enesis is a Latin word that meaning Sword.
