    With plenty of clear nights this week and having been inspired by Peter Shah's recent Iris I thought I'd add some more data to my effort. Now comprising 215x60s Lum plus 95x120s each RGB (13hrs). Esprit 150ED, ASI1600mm, ZWO LRGB filters, AZEQ-6 mount. Processed in Pixinsight and Photoshop. Thanks for looking Dave

    This is a combined RGB + Nb image. The RGB is from a Canon 70D + WO-ZS71; the Nb is a 428ex + Samyang 135mm. I took Ha, OIII and SII of M42. I decided to try and combine the Ha and OIII with the RGB without really knowing what I am doing. I included the Ha by combining it with the Red channel in Lighten mode in PS. I used copies of the RGB to combine the OIII separately with the Blue and Green channels. I then mask layered all three in PS to get the image below. Are there 'rules' or 'guidance' for combining OIII with RGB? I basically adopted the same approach as with the Ha but is that the best way? Is it even a good idea to use the OIII at all? Any help or advice on how I should combine the OIII in the HaRGB image would be much appreciated. I know there are a few star shape issues which I think may have been dew on the lens in the Ha, and the core is a bit blown but hopefully I can sort that with another image session. Thank you for looking. Adrian

    Not brilliant conditions, Mars especially was dancing a jig. It was almost impossible to tell Neptune and Uranus apart,. except Uranus was steadier. I think the poor seeing on Neptune made it look larger than it really is. Mars: Uranus: Neptune:

    2×2 panels, 4 hours of exposure per panel. For this I used the c8 with hyperstar and the ASI. This is my first mosaic, and it took lots of bashing in PS. Tell my what you think, but all things considered, I think it's decent for my first mosaic. Thanks for looking Hunter

    Some shots of the Moon on the morning of 31st Oct. 1Deg C in the obsy... The whole image a stack of 5 subs from my Canon 650D ISO200 1/250th sec. Processed in Registax and Photoshop The detail shots done using an Altair Astro 178C either 1000 or 2000 frames with a 2.5x Barlow. All on my 9.25SCT. took the best 25 - 40% using Autostakkert and then tweaked them in Regsitax wavelets and finished off in Photshop. Seeing was on a 4-5 using the Damian Peach scale hence I got away with the Barlow.
