  1. yes I do know the calculation for size with known distance and arcseconds. it would be tough to get it perfect but I might try it out. im kinda nerdy like that. im just think it would be pretty approximate based on these two different images. but it will be fun
  2. this is HOO. same data I used for the animation but these are the colors I wanted for the image. QSI6120wsg-8 astrodon 3nm narrowband filters. Ha 22x900sec OIII 17x900sec
  3. I spent a lot of time trying to get the colors to match the original hubble image. it turned out better than I thought it would. the hubble image is from 2000, and the new one is from 2019. almost 20 years of expansion. remember this is expanding at about 1500 meters per second.
  4. it looks like the most movement you can see is the swirling around of the inside
  5. and by the way, somebaody did an awesome 10 year timelapse of the crab. 1 picture a year with the same equipment. it is really good, its over on astrobin https://www.astrobin.com/full/327338/0/
  6. thank you very much. that website will help
  7. that is cool, im working on my image of the crab and im going to make an animation from hubbles picture 20 years ago, so you can see the expansion over 20 years. what im curious about is, your animation moves smoothly to the next image, did you use some software to make the transition or did you just make all the individual frames?
  8. Here is the old version. I also used to shy away from the reddish hues in the yellow. I liked yellow better. one big difference is I used to go crazy with noise reduction giving a way too smooth look, you can only really tell if you zoom way in. but a trick I learned is color noise reduction. you can crank that all the way up in camera raw with PS, and it really smooths out problem areas. I think it bring down saturation just a hair too but it works wonders.
  9. I really like the reddish one. looks way more natural. could even be stretched just a little bit more, but the subtle look is nice
  10. yes ive been trying to scale back the intensity of my processing, I do like to pull out faint structures but I used to overdue the brightness of the colors. its a delicate balance. I always see other images that seem to look more natural, processing skills take years to evolve.
  11. my first narrowband image through my new stellarvue 130mm, this is reduced .8 to f/5.25 QSI6120 astrodon 3nm filters
  12. I really wanted to reprocess my data from last year, I loved the old version, but my processing has come very far in a year. these are all 900 second subs, QSI6120 astrodon 3nm filters Stellarvue 80mm reduced to f/4.8
  13. SV80 with .8 reducer QSI 6120wsg8 astrodon 3nm filters 39x900 ha 41x900 OIII 17x900 SII
  14. that's a great image. man that fsq 106 with a .6 reducer is a nice setup.
  15. by popular demand I reprocessed this and didn't do any noise reduction. I did make the colors a bit brighter but im curious if this looks better to anybody else without the noise reduction
