  1. Due to poor weather it has taken four nights this month to get all the data on this target Sh2 168 has come out okay but Sh2 169 was maybe a bit to faint for this set up.

    Ha of 13 x 900 

    RGB of 8 x 300 each 

    all binned 2 x 2

    WO 90 scope at F 5.5

  2. This is a target I have missed over the years I thought I would have a go at it in narrowband with the Hubble Palette I would have liked to have captured more SII but with the clouds this week this is all I got.

    Imaged over two nights 02/07-10-19

    Ha of 12 x 900  OIII of 12 x 900 and 5 x 900 of SII all binned 2 x 2

    this has been a bit difficult to process I have tried a few different versions this is it up until now.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  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.
