  1. I miss the Northern Hem, Bodes galaxy, the Pelican Neb . If only we lived on a flat earth
  2. A Narrowband image from Victoria Australia during lockdown this week Details Skywatcher 10" Quatro Qsi583wsg data 2 hrs Narrowband I'd very much like opinions regarding Narrowband stars, not so much within this image of mine but more generally My question being are Magenta stars acceptable or not, some don't mind them. Others insist on removing the Magenta halos. What is deemed acceptable with regard to Narrowband star Halos, leave them in or remove them. Opinions guys.
  3. Very much a Southern object I'm afraid
  4. You and me both Carole, I went a bit crazy on this one. It's a good job that Narrowband is subjective.
  5. A good question, I probably couldn't repeat it If I tried again. The initial colour combination had that area leaning towards cyan . I brought out more Blue using the selective colour tool in PS and by layer masking. The O3 data was also binned and stronger than I normally would expect
  6. Lobster Neb from Yea Victoria Australia Imaging Scope TS130APO Camera QSI583WSG Astrodon Narrowband Filters HOO mapped. 4hrs integration
  7. Just getting my own back , mines rubbish
  8. Gee, Jellyfish Neb , running man, running chicken, skull and crossbones, the propellor, butterfly, withches broom. Who dreams all these names up. At least this one resembles the name pretty well. It's a fine image, showing great resolution, superb guiding . I think this image will sell some scopes. Having said that mines better
  9. I certainly do, I smashed a tooth earlier this week. Thanks Buddy for the comments
  10. Thanks guys for the positive comments. There is a mistake in the original post, the data was taken not with my TS 130 Apo as stated but with my Meade ED80. Apologies. However I do have an image of the Carina Nebula taken with the TS 130 Apo which I will include. The star processing is rubbish on this version. I do have a better one but it's on a different machine. I'll post the image if anyone is interested. I probably should add that I've been a SGL member for some years, I moved from Wales to Australia in 2015 so have been lucky to be able to image in both Hemispheres
  11. Taken with a QSi583 Scope TS130 Apo From Yea , Victoria Australia 6Hrs Narrowband taken over 2nights
  12. It's Hubble mapped, 3 hrs in total. Ha was very strong I only used 40 mins Ha
  13. Taken with a QSi583 Scope TS130 Apo From Yea , Victoria Australia
  14. Moved from the UK to Australia back in 2015. Just getting back into Astrophotography image is 3hrs of narrowband data taken with a QSI583 through a Meade Ed80ED80
  15. quite agree. Brian's comment about observing mars was spot on, even more impressive I felt was the fact that he offered the advise that observing Saturn can be just the opposite. Btw not only 5hrs but that image of the jellyfish was also taken over two nights. Misleading sometimes the over simplification astrophotography gets
  16. From the album: Neb pics

  17. Now there is wide and then there is ultrawide and now we have ultra mega wide Fantastic well done Martin
  18. Just checking for the soap bubble, I missed that one
  19. Thanks for the comments Exposure details are 50 mins total in Ha, S2, O3. Astrodon 5nm filters. The O3 data was very weak so the pic is a Bi colour process of just the Ha and the S2 Thanks again Dave Dave
  20. Framing wise I think its turned well. That was a pure fluke though, until it was processed
