  2. Using HA and OIII filter on a Atik 314L+ 15x600s subs of each i got this image last tuesday as myself and my friend tried out her new scope a Pentax 75mm. any comments welcome as i'm just getting into bi-colour imaging. thanks for looking glen
  3. well i've been meaning to try this for a while but not had chance, but work and life gets in the wait. so this is the first attempt at doing a bicolour image. made up from 16x900s HA and 16x900s OIII thanks for looking glen
  4. no there is only a tiny crop from the raw data just to clean the edges up after stacking.
  5. made the most of the clear skies on tuesday and got this, taken with my 8"RC and and SBIG ST-8300m made up of 10x 5 mins in LRGB. still not sure how happy i am with it tho. glen

    hi all well i got a few hours clear last night so i had a quick go at M13. sadly i had problems with my filter wheel so i could only get the Luminance, never the less i had a quick play about with the data today and i'm quiet pleased when i look at my first attempt at M13 on page 4 of the "lets see your first DSOs" sticky. glen
  8. cheers for the comments, i will have another play with it later today rob. glen
  9. would love to hear peoples comments and suggestions how i can improve, this is about my first proper attempt to have a crack at colour, although i think i need to get some more colour data for it. taken with a SBIG ST-8300m 5 min exposers on a 8" RC.
