  1. This is SH2-86, which is a faint emission nebula in the constellation Vulpecula, close to the Dumbell Nebula. I took these subs while back, but just got round to finally processing it. I have a full set of Oiii and Sii too, but got hardly any signal from either, so in the end I decided to go moody black & white Ha 17x900s Ha, darks, flats and bias, equipment as per sig, Pixinsight processing I don't normally do starless, except for fun, but thought this one was rather striking: SH2-86 contains open star cluster NGC 6823 which is
  2. yay, I just got another Astrobin top pick !
  3. thanks all ! I've got over 2100 likes on Reddit for it ! Perhaps I should sell shares in it
  4. Seems to have turned into a bit of a multi-year project, this one - the original Ha was taken in 2017, though not nearly enough of it, and the Oiii and Sii in 2018, then I managed, pandemic notwithstanding, to add a lot more Ha to it: Has BBCode broken by the way ? SHO: Click for hi-res and a monochrome 2x drizzled Ha detail: Click for hi-res 9x 600s plus another 13x 900s Ha, 10x each 900s OIII and SII, darks flats and bias, equipment as per sig, taken in southern Spain, PI processing. This thread was my previous attemp
  5. For a while I thought I wasn't going to get any at all this year, because my kit is in Spain, but I did manage two weeks in the summer.
  6. decided to give this another go - having got my new monitor, I think the previous version was definitely looking a bit too saturated, so I've tried to bring that down. Also trying to get a bit more of a natural blue shell going round it, and I managed to integrate my RGB star colours better. What do you all think - better now ?

  7. oo, I got a top pick in Astrobin - is that good ?
  8. Not quite the quality I'd normally want, since my kit is all in Spain and I'm not... But here's the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction on a smart phone from tier-4 London...
  9. Here's my latest homage to this glorious object... Swan Nebula (M17) SHO by Stuart Goodwin, on Flickr. Please click through for hi-res version. I took some Sii in the summer and added it to Ha and Oiii I'd taken in the previous year. 13x 900s Sii added to 17 each x 10min Ha and OIII, darks, flats and bias, equipment as per sig, processed in Pixinsight, taken in a dark sky sight in Spain. I've previously published an HOO version: Swan Nebula (M17) in bicolour HOO by Stuart Goodwin, on Flickr and an Ha monochrome detail: Swan
  10. thanks very much, and appreciate the cc - this one's a strange one, I like it on most of the monitors I see it, but on my main desktop pc monitor (which is admittedly past its best), I don't like it, looks too Disney. Santa's going to get me a new fancy colour-calibrated photo-editing-worthy monitor for Xmas, if he doesn't get locked down again before then. I don't think I actually saturated the nebula at all (well, maybe the blue)
  11. Yay !! My second astro image of the year - I'm on a roll now ! I added OIII data (22x 900 secs) to an earlier set of HaRGB data (22x600s Ha, 10x180s R,G and B 2x2 binned taken in 2017). Darks, flats and bias, equipment as per sig, Pixinsight. Most of the image is HOO,though I added in some RGB star colour, which I couldn't really get to sing very much (couple of red stars top-right I suppose) The Crescent Nebula (NGC 6888) is an emission nebula in the constellation Cygnus, about 5000 light-years away from Earth. It is formed by the fast stell
  12. Well Covid-19 put a massive dent in my imaging this year, since my kit is in Spain and it's been really hard to get out there. This is the first new work I've done this year, about 11 months after my last one. So... how is everyone anyway ? Here it is: Bubble Nebula (NGC7635) by Stuart Goodwin, on Flickr About 20 each of 900s Ha, Oiii and Sii, darks flats and bias, equipment as per sig, Pixinsight. I went for the (Ha, Sii+Oiii, Oiii) palette since I wanted something closer to natural colouring than the Hubble palette gives, especially since the different
  13. It was pinched optics in the coma corrector from being screwed on too tight (not that anyone cares, it seems ) Still not sure why the flats didn't pick it up though. Anyway, did a run of OIII on the Crescent last night, not a hint of banding
