  1. Thanks so much for all of your good words. I am happy that u like it and i wanna thank all the astronomers and scientist that had give to us (amateur astrophotographers) the opportunity to capture tha magic and and the wonders of the Universe. The technique with the Hubble Colours came from the astronomers that work with Hubble telescope and use 3 kind of narrow-band filters (Ha=Hydrogen a, OIII= Oxygen 3 and S2= Sulphur 2). Its a unique way to capture this three amazing chemical components that can show all the details in a nebula. I use MaximDl to mix the three filters and Photoshop just for brightenings things up. Soon many more wonders will come.

  6. Thank u all very much for all of your inspiring and wonderful words. I am happy that u like the Swan Nebula. I wanna inform you that this is my first image with the new CCD ATIK 314L+ camera that i have won in the annual competition of ATIK before 1 month. Many new wonders of the Universe will follow and i am happy to share them with all of you. Thanks again!

  9. Thanks u all so much! No, i dont have a filter wheel. Because of the Hyperstar i try not to put so much weight in front. Exactly in front of the ccd is a thin filter adapter that i insert manually the filters. Its the best way to do it. The seeing and transparency is good here and i am luck that the light pollution of Athens is far away and only on the west horizon. The noise from the blue filter comes from the smaller amount of frames.Could not manage more of them but i am satisfied with the result. Thanks for your wonderful words and soon with the new CCD ATIK 314L+ we will go deeper into the magical universe.

  11. My dear Astrofriends! Thank u all very much. I am very happy that u like the image, because for me the most important thing is that we can reveal and share the beauties and the mysteries of the Universe. Soon with my new CCD ATIK 314L+ i will try to go much deeper inside the astronomy targets and i will share everything with u all. Thanks again!

  16. This is my setup of Hyperstar and Manual Filter Set, so u can see how Hyperstar can co-operate with filters!
  17. Thanks to all of u dear astro-friends. The spikes are a combination of the cables of the Hyperstars CCD ATIK16HR and Noels plugin.

  21. Thanks again to all, happy that u enjoy the image. Maybe i must had not write this about the yellow, i just wanted to inform u all that when u see yellow color on the image (in many parts of the nebula) so u know that it is the combination of chemical combination of Sulfur and Hydrogen.

  23. Exactly, richard. Well explained and very good detailed analysed. I have one question though, is the blue better represented with [OIII] + 0.3*Halpha or the Hbeta alone? Thanks.
  24. Thank u all. Paul, this is not a Hubble Palette. I have write it on the title (Full Color). Its a true color image with a new technique that from narrowband u can create full real color image. If u see the Wizard from other astrophotographer with the LRGB technique u will see the same results. Before 3 weeks i have post here the Hubble color Wizard. Thanks again!
