Eastern Veil


Eastern Veil - first light with my new (second-hand) QHY8L - and my first ever colour image.

  • Taken on 21 Sep, 2017 @ 23:15 ~ 24:00
  • QHY8L camera @ -5 C
  • Quattro 8" with CC
  • Avalon M-Uno mount
  • 10 x 5 minutes, guided & dithered (with PHD2 / Nebulosity)
  • FLATS, BIAS, Bad pixel map, de-Bayer, and a bit of stretching and saturation (also in Nebulosity.)

It's somewhat cropped since the CC spacing was a bit wrong.

Love it. Some would argue the stars are not perfect, but they're good enough for me, and the texture and color of the nebula are absolutely fabulous.
