  1. This was taken using an Atik 314l and skywatcher ed80.
  2. Hi guys i have not posted for a while but this is an image i captured of the elephant trunk nebula in bi colour. This target is quite low in the sky but i thought i would have a go anyway:) Image is taken with sky watcher ed80 and Atik 314l. 10 x 1200 seconds Ha 8 x 1200 seconds in O3 Any help on ways to improve are always much appreciated
  3. Hi guys i have captured both of these images over the last month. Both were taken with an Atik 314l+ and processed with a bicolour technique. The first is the bubble nebula which was made up of 15x 10 minute in Ha 15x 10 minute in O3 calibration frames used but no darks Second is melotte 15 15x 10 minute in Ha 15x 15 minute in O3 I plan on getting an extra channel in S2 to make this into a Hubble palette image. Thanks for looking and constructive criticism is welcome
  4. Love the details and the star colours
  5. I am working on the bubble nebula myself at the moment. I will be more than pleased if it turns out half as good as yours
  6. Thanks for the tip appreciate it.
  7. Ok i took on board what you guys said and added more stretches with curves and then used a reveal all mask and then brushed out the over exposed bubble and surrounding area. I think this is better now:) But if you see any more problems i would love to know:) Also Grimmec you said you have done a full narrow band on this object. What is the O3 and S2 signal like on this target? Be good to know so I can work out exposure times for upcoming sessions
  8. That's fantastic advice guys I'll get to work on that. Thank you
  9. Hi guys I managed to get out last night and capture 15 x 600 second subs of the bubble nebula. I am really pleased with the result. I think it might be a good idea to capture a set of longer subs to bring out the background nebula. Thanks for looking and all criticism is welcome
