IC1848 20181110 HaOIII
Soulful Friday--more importantly it was a cloudless Friday on the 10th. I'm going to have to do a mosaic for the whole thing, but for now here's the southern end of IC 1848, the Soul Nebula in Ha and OIII (Soul is also identified as Westerhout 5 and Sh 2-199). IC 1848 is in the constellation Cassiopeia, and what you see here is about half the 100 lightyears in length of the whole nebula--so what is that, something like 588 quadrillion miles? At 6,500 light-years away, that will make a nice four panel mosaic. (Notes: 40 x 240 seconds in Ha, 28 x 600 sec. in OIII. Atik 414EX mono CCD, Astronomik 12nm Ha, OIII filters, William Optics ZS61 + WO Flat F6A f/4.7, CEM25P EQ mount, Orion OAG + ZWO ASI120MM-Mini guide cam, Stellarmate OS (INDI/KStars/Ekos) running on Raspberry Pi 3b+) saltwaterwitch.com/blog

Cone Nebula 20181110 HaOIII
This is the first time I've captured any frames of NGC 2264, the Cone Nebula, about 2600 light-years away (800 Parsecs) in the constellation Monoceros. NGC 2264 includes the nebula and the Christmas Tree Cluster of stars at its core. (Notes: 61 x 300 seconds in Ha, 48 x 300 sec. in OIII. Atik 414EX mono CCD, Astronomik 12nm Ha, OIII filters, William Optics ZS61 + WO Flat F6A f/4.7, CEM25P EQ mount, Orion OAG + ZWO ASI120MM-Mini guide cam, Stellarmate OS (INDI/KStars/Ekos) running on Raspberry Pi 3b+) SaltwaterWitch/blog

Cargo To Enceladus
That time we signed-on to manage the genetic cargo transfer from Mars to Corley-Banks Station on Enceladus. That was one long thirty-six sol trip out to Saturn, but we were 'ractive for most of it, teaming up with a dozen other aurors to track down and defeat Voldemort's successor. SaltwaterWitch.com

Orbital
That time we lifted out to L4 to spend a month on that orbital that looked like it was made from the street-sweepings after a parade. Cool place.  Amazing art scene. SaltwaterWitch.com

Chris Howard
Artist
United States
I'm a fairly creative guy with a pen and a paint brush, author of Seaborn (Juno Books), Salvage (Masque, 2013), Nanowhere, and a shelf-full of other books. My short stories have appeared in a bunch of magazines and anthologies, including “Lost Dogs and Fireplace Archeology” in Fantasy Magazine, and ‘Tear Apart Worlds” in Pen-Ultimate. My story “Hammers and Snails” was a Robert A. Heinlein Centennial Short Fiction Contest winner. I write and illustrate the comic, Saltwater Witch. My ink work and digital illos have appeared in Shimmer, BuzzyMag, various RPGs, and on the pages and covers of books, blogs, and other interesting places. Last year I painted a 9 x 12 foot Steampunk Map of New York for a cafe in Brooklyn.

Two new pages up for SaltwaterWitch Comic 16!

This set features the start of an intense discussion between Kassandra and her grandmother--Kallixene. Even with Ephoros at her back, Kassandra's on thin ice, not certain about which direction to go with her new-found family.

A life lived with width, breadth, and above all else, depth is the best kind of life, and you have lived another year of such a life.  Take pride in the undeniable achievement of a worthwhile voyage of discovery through time.  May glory and grandeur not be vicarious experiences, may you plumb the depths and find knowledge, beauty and treasure, may your dreams not elude you and may flashes of inspiration and insight linger to enrich your own days and dreams, and the lives of others.  A very happy birthday to you, and you will not be alone in celebrating the happy miracle of your existence.

May great rulers, just and wise, summon you to appear before them so that they and their cheering subjects may honor you this year.  May joy and friendship support and richen your merry-making, and visions of glorious color and sophistication lurk ready at your calling to assist you in your art and help you lift the world's spirits with beauty, enhanced and shared.  May every sun that sees you this year rejoice in your happiness, may a year from today find you wiser, happier, more skilled, and rejoicing at the thought of another HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
