  1. Thanks for the comments at F10 with using a wedge the guiding sometimes is a problem the RGB data I used was from 2010 and my set up was not as stable then as it is now so maybe the stars were not round enough. Bob
  2. I agree Mick on both accounts the processing was difficult as it is a faint object I did tone down the saturation maybe needed a bit more and I got carried away trying to get some detail if I get another go at it I will try longer intergrations in Luminance to try and bring out the faint outer arms. Bob
  3. This one has faint outer arms I would have liked more time on it but this is it up until now Luminance of 19 x 10 minutes un binned imaged on 28-10-16 and 01-11-16 and RGB of 14 x 10 + 5 x 15 minutes from 2010 Celestron 280 mm scope at F10 cameras QHY9m and Canon 400D. Bob
  4. Luminance of 16 x 10 minutes un binned imaged on -1-11-16 RGB of 20 x 10 minutes from 2010 Celestron scope 280 mm at F10 cameras QHY9m and Canon 400D I would like more data on this one. Bob
  5. Thanks for the comments my method for re aligning the camera up from night to night is that I have a line laser set up with the camera body and the telescope and once this is done and I frame the object I have an image from the other session and line it up by eye as best I can I do loss some also from the outside but it does not add up to much overall. I also have a lot of dew after a long session but the dew shield and heater strips keep it from the imaging train. Bob
  6. Thanks for comments it is an interesting target I didn't get much data on it so it was a bit noisy and I had to apply more noise reduction on the background than I would have liked if I get some more data hopefully it will not be required. There is more wispy stuff around the planetary I would like to be able to pull it out. Bob
  7. I am posting this as an on going project and hope to get more data next year as it needs more imaged over two nights 02/09/-10-16 Luminance of 8 x 10 minutes un binned and R 4x5 minutes G 4x5 minutes and B 5x5 minutes binned 2x2 scope Celestron 280 mm at F10 and QHY9m camera. Bob
  8. I was hoping to get more data on this target but the weather has not been helpful so I thought I would post it as an on going project maybe get more data next year Luminance taken over two night 29-09-16 and 02-10-16 15 x 15 minutes and 1 x 20 minute sub un binned and some old RGB of 12 x 10 minutes from 2012 scope Celestron 280 mm at F10 cameras QHY8 Pro and QHY9m. Bob
  9. Thanks for the helpful comments I think if I get a night or two of clear skies I might try and get some RGB data with my mono camera and see what that does I will still have a bit play with what I have at the moment. Bob
  10. Yes Chris this was at F10 I think maybe the problem was poor old data from 2010 it was way out of line hence the black triangle top left I did not want to crop it anymore I might try to get some new RGB if I can and see if that helps I tried a bit more play with the stars maybe a little better ? Bob
  11. I went for Luminance on Sunday night and managed to get 9 x 10 minutes then thought I would get some 15 minute subs to try and get more detail I got one then the clouds rolled in I have combined this with some old RGB from 2010 taken with my Canon 400D about 3.5 hours I might try and get some new RGB and more Luminance but this is it up until now. Scope Celestron 280 mm at prime focus cameras Canon 400D and a QHY9m. Bob
  12. Thanks for the comments I hope to add to this data when I can the nights are to light now for me. Bob
  13. Thanks for the kind comments it is to light now for me to get anymore data but I am sure it will help when I can. Bob
  14. Luminance of 8 x 10 minutes un binned from 08-05-16 and some old RGB of 13 x 8 minutes from 2012 the image is a bit noisy next year I hope to add to it to try and get more detail. Scope Celestron 280 mm at F 6.3 and cameras QHY9m and QHY8 Pro. Bob
  15. Thanks for the kind comments I will have to wait until next year now to get more data on this one. Bob
  16. I have not been able to get a lot of time on this one I hope to add to it next year Luminance of 6 x 10 minutes un binned and RGB of 3 x 5 minutes each binned 2 x 2 Scope Celestron 280 mm at F 6.3 and camera QHY9m Bob
  17. I agree Wim I have now corrected the image as you said thanks for the comment. Bob
  18. I was hoping to get more data on this target but with the nights now getting lighter I may have to wait until next year now this is it up to now Luminance of 5 x 10 minutes from 27-04-16 un-binned and some old RGB from 2011 of 11 x 10 minutes scope Celestron 280 mm at F 6.3 cameras QHY9m and QHY8 Pro. Bob
  19. Thanks maybe a bit over processed I think. Bob
  20. I thought this post was not uploading so there are now three posts I cannot see how to delete two of them can anyone remove two or tell me how to do it. Bob
  21. I managed to get some more Luminance on this target and now have a total of 19 x 10 minutes and 3 x 15 minutes I have re-processed all the LRGB data and this is my effort now. Bob
  22. Thanks guys I hope to add some more Luminance in the future. Bob
  23. A LRGB image Luminance of 10 x 10 minutes from 31-03-16 no binning and RGB of 25 x 10 minutes from 2011 Scope Celestron 280 mm at F 6.3 cameras QHY8 Pro and QHY9m more Luminance still required as it is a bit noisy. Bob
