  1. Howdy,

     

    Well, through the wet weather, I've finally managed enough data to stop reprocessing and actually create a new image.

    Please find attached my version of the Wolf Nebula, SL17, which is a HOO with RGB stars attempt. Please forgive the ugly halos, I think I know what it is although I lack the sky time to get up to the obs and mess around.

    Details with image and you can use the size buttons at the bottom for a bigger or smaller sizing.

    Cheers and clears!

  2. Well, my three dragon race has been run and I'm knackered with an LRGB, HOO and SHO each (We won't mention a rather poor attempt at HaLRGB for the quadfecta). happy04.gif

     
    For your viewing pleasure, here is my interpretation of the Hubble palette of NGC6188 and friends.
     
    I have tried very hard with this one to go "less is more", similar to my HOO version but with even less. No artificial sharpening, minor noise reduction and careful stretching, some colour manipulation to remove some of the green and the addition of RGB stars.
     
    I have left it a bit tame in the colour palette as I felt I was murdering good data trying to get it to be teal and gold all over. It appears to respond to the subtle colour change better and reveals a lot of structure in the nebulousness over most of the image.
     
    Doing these three images has helped change the way my processing is being done, with some core strategies for linear data now firmly entrenched in my mind, seemingly giving rise to much better data when stretched. Of course, it must be good data to start with(well,as good as I can get it).
     
    I hope you take a look and find the viewing enjoyable.
     
     
    As always, details with images.

  3. Yes, mine was an older version of SGP as well. I would have thought that updates to the system like dot NET would go ahead anyway regardless.

    Anyway, my obs is 60 km away so it isn't easy to put a mask on the scope, I rely on my software to be set up and function properly. I use remote utilities to control the imaging computer. Special trip next week coming up.

  4. I experienced this myself the other night, an identical scenario and I am in South Australia. I have just refitted my camera after some repair work and was trying to test it and just could not get focus. I tried several objects across the sky and gave up in the end. 

    I then tried to upgrade to the latest version of SGP and discovered I did not have the correct updates and am currently waiting to retest after updating all the relevant software. Will post when I get a chance to test, probably next week.

    Glad to see I was not alone.

  5. Thanks for likes, people.

    Alan, it is on the end of the Lagoon Nebula so if you can see that you should be able to see this.

    I also had it incorrectly labeled as IC4585 instead of IC4685.

    Cheers and clears!
