Astronomy Science Data

Last 6 months I have had very boring times, clouds almost every nights, and even if I have a clear sky I'm living near city and have a very light polluted sky.

I spend a lot of time to solve technical problems and develop details on my astronomy imaging system, but the outcome in an astronomical aspect is very poor.

Can I do something else then taking my own astroimages? I can of course rent telescope time on some remote telescope. But why don't get even more deeper into it? Use professional data! Have you ever think about how our famous objects will look in really big telescopes? Here I start with some examples how it could look. Later maybe I can use it for some easy science research, who knows?

Messier objects

In order to learn how to use these databases, I first test with Messier objects. I think most people with astronomy interest know about Messier, if not you can get more information from the link below.

Below you will see which objects I have selected first, the idea is that you can compare these photos from different observatories with your own:

Messier 1, Ring Nebula Messier 13 Messier 31, Andromeda Galaxy Messier 42, Orion Nebula
Messier 1
Crab Nebula
Messier 13
Hercules Globular Cluster
Messier 31
Andromeda Galaxy
Messier 42
Orion Nebula
Messier 45, Pleiades
Messier 45

Observatory list and data bases:

The idea is that you shall find above objects at each observatory/database I list below:

More will come later, I must practice first so I now how to handle the data.
