  1. That is a serious mosaic....well done, beautiful detail
  2. Consider the Atik 383L+ with future proof 2" filters, and if I was you I would get a camera that is a 16bit
  3. Brilliant and very colourful
  4. +1 for talking to Ian King....he sorted me out.....
  5. Yep looking very good now, but there is a bit of noise there....try MureDenoise as its absolutely fantastic at removing noise before you combine the linear masters
  6. That is coming on very nicely, the data seems very good
  7. You could try using MureDenoise on your Ha, SII and OII masters straight after integration.......this is a fantastic script that gets rid of just about all the noise, but the images have to be linear and have absolutely nothing done to them for it to work correctly
  8. Have a look at this video
  9. I am sorry but I just don't like the green and the reddish background, what has happened to the normal SHO colours?
  10. Very clear detail, well captured
  11. Here you go: 1. Open the 'starless' image and the 'original' into PI and create an image of the 'stars' using PixelMath 'original' - 'starless' (it will be black with white stars) 2. Save the image of the 'stars' 3. Process 'starless' image as required and save as 'processedstarless' 4. Create new composite image using PixelMath as 'processedstarless' + 'stars' If you need any more explanation get back to me
  12. Beautiful image, well captured and worth the integration time. I use StarNet++ on these type of images to remove the stars, then work on the resulting starless image to bring out details in nebulosity etc.......when finished add the stars back in which is dead easy to do in PI using PixelMath. This way processing the background detail does not effect the stars.
  13. I definitely like the second image more in keeping with SHO, well done
  14. Nice image you have captured..........IMHO its not cheating as the only alternative would be to pack a suitcase and take your telescope out there which would be rather expensive. Using iTelescope, as I also do from Siding Springs, gives you the opportunity to image targets that you couldn't normally do....you still have to set the telescope up with exposure time RA and DEC, pick the correct time to image and then process the subs.......

  15. And something a little different, filaments of the NGC6960 Western Veil Nebula in OIII only. The image was captured from iTelescopes remote location in New Mexico with telescope T21, image captured with three hours integration, processed starless with StarNet++, PI and PS, and coloured in the blue-green light of the OIII emission. Thanks to John Ebersole for the inspiration to take this image.
