  1. What a capture well worth all your effort well done. Bob
  2. Thanks for the comments Wim I had a few problems imaging it I think the seeing was not at its best it made the processing more difficult as a result. Bob
  3. Two interacting galaxies NGC 3432 mag 11.6 and UGC 5983 mag 15 .5 imaged over two nights 27-02-19 / 28-04-19 Luminance of 19 x 600 un binned RGB of 5 x 300 each binned 2 x 2 Celestron 11 " scope at F 6.3 QHY9m camera this has been a bit difficult to process I have tried a few different versions this is it up until now. Bob
  4. I have run the image through pixinsight and applied the scnr tool to remove the green tinge it does look a bit better I will try and remember to do it in future most times I think on but not this time. Bob
  5. Thanks for the feedback after processing for a while I tend to get a bit colour blind I usually give the final image a run in pixinsight and run the SNCR tool which usually fixes the green tinge I didn’t bother on this occasion it’s an age thing I will give it a run through later and see how it turns out. Bob
  6. I thought I would have a go at imaging M 92 as it does not seem to get imaged as much as Hercules other more famous global cluster M13 this is a start. 13 x 300 un binned Luminance subs WO 90 scope QHY9m camera Bob
  7. I managed to get 6 x 900 binned 2 x 2 subs of Ha data on Thursday night on M 101 I added this to my LRGB data from last month to create a HaLRGB image I think this has helped. WO 90 scope QHY9m camera Bob
  8. Thanks for the comments guys I was lucky that night perfect conditions. Bob
  9. Another target M 101 which I last imaged over a decade ago this is a wide field view Imaged over two nights 27/28-03-19 Luminance of 21 x 300 RGB of 8 x 300 each all subs un binned WO 90 scope QHY9m camera Bob
  10. It is over ten years ago that I last imaged M 51 so I thought it was time to give it another try this is a wide field view slightly cropped. Imaged on 27-03-19 Luminance of 24 x 300 un binned RGB of 6 x 300 each binned 2 x 2 WO 90 scope camera QHY9m Bob
  11. Thanks Des it is a nice target the poor seeing bloated the galaxy and stars a bit but living in the UK you have just got to go for it on a clear night. Bob
  12. Imaged over two nights 25/26-02-19 seeing poor for this FL Luminance of 21 x 600 RGB of 8 x 300 each all binned 2 x 2 Celestron 11 " scope at F 6.3 QHY9m camera Bob
  13. Remarkable image depth and detail amazing. Bob
  14. Thanks Martin for the comments from my location this target was over the North Sea it is about 100 mts from my observatory practically no light pollution in that direction other directions not quite as good so it does help for the faint stuff coming through. Bob
  15. Thanks Peter I like to trawl through sky charts to see if I can find some of the lesser known targets. Bob
