  1. That's a great piece of work.. Welll done!
  2. There's a few issues I need to resolve with my imaging system before I'm able to capture better subs, but i'm happy with this image. 11 hours of Ha (12nm) in 5 min subs. Stacked in DSS and tinkered with in Photoshop. Equipment: Altair Starwave 102ED, 0.6x RF, 12nm Ha filter, Atik 428ex mono. Cheers..
  3. Second process looks best. Much more natural.
  4. At some point I will be redoing the whole project as I have recenly had it bought to my attention that my spacing between CCD and Flattner / Reducer is out by around 14mm. But yes, I'll be going for a colour image.
  5. This was imaged over the last few clear nights. Equipment: 102ED APO, 0.6x FF/reducer, 12nm Astronomik Ha filter and the Atik 428ex. Guiding with a 60mm Primaluce Lab guidscope and Altair GP130. Mount: SW AZ-EQ6. Exposure: 3h30m in 15min subs. 24 x Darks No flats or Bias calibration. Tweeked in photoshop.
  6. Saying nothing as i'm still picking my jaw up of the floor...... That's utterly excellent IMO.
  7. Nice image. However i much prefer this with a lot more space around it, there's so much more to this target. Great pic all the same
  8. That second image is much better. This target is a really nice in Bicolour as the Sii doesn't really come through in a Tricolour. Well done, very nice!
  9. Personally speaking, this is by far the best rendition of M82 in Ha that i've seen. IMO its jaw dropping! Congrats, Freddie.
  10. Something to report with... Image taken with 127mm triplet Apo + Atik 428Ex +Ha 310 min of data, 10 min subs. no calibration whatsoever as i'm still capturing my data....... currently at 700min and counting.
  11. Hopefully get some more clear sky soon so I can continue. I managed to grab some SII and OIII for it yesterday. I'll attempt to learn how to combine them.. having never done it.
  12. Cheers folks... yeah, it really needs a few more hours of data to make it pop. Fingers crossed.
  13. I'm sure you can all recognise this one. 5 x 8min subs in Ha. Conditions weren't great when i started to shoot this, which is why I only have 5 subs.. Equipment 127mm ED Apo and Atik 428ex Again..... many more subs required..
  14. Well, i managed to capture a few photons before the cloud took over once again! :/Crescent Nebula, Cygnus. 9 x 5min subs in Hydrogen Alpha.Darks and Bias calibrated, no flatts as yet.Equipment 127mm ED Apo and Atik 428exMany more subs required..
