    NGC 7094

    Well spotted Olly. I'll take a look at them. Thanks

    NGC 7094

    I agree with Goran too! Thanks Goran for the suggestion.
  3. Barry, It's great to see you getting such a wonderful harvest of superb images from your investments at e-Eye. Dark, clear skies really do help a lot! I can't wait to see what your next images will look like! Peter

    NGC 7094

    Thanks Goran. Yes there's IFN everywhere around this. Here's a slightly sharpened version. I think it's about as far as I would be comfortable pushing it as I try to avoid images having a processed look. This maybe even too far!

    Quite remarkable. Feels so close-up. Great clarity and detail.

    NGC660

    Thanks David. X is where the pot of gold is hidden.

    NGC660

    A very faint galaxy, magnitude 12. 40 million light years from Earth in the constellation of Pisces, NGC 660's peculiar appearance marks it as a polar ring galaxy. A rare galaxy type, polar ring galaxies have a substantial population of stars, gas, and dust orbiting in rings strongly tilted from the plane of the galactic disk. The bizarre-looking configuration could have been caused by the chance capture of material from a passing galaxy by a disk galaxy, with the captured debris eventually strung out in a rotating ring. The polar ring component can also be used to explore the shape of the galaxy's otherwise unseen dark matter halo by calculating the dark matter's gravitational influence on the rotation of the ring and disk. Broader than the disk, NGC 660's ring spans over 50,000 light-years. LRGB some 13 hours 30 minutes total integration.

    Great image - nice vibrant colours

    Today’s APOD

    Congratulations to Steve Milne (Gnomus) and Barry Wilson for today’s NASA Astronomy Picture Of The Day!

    Alex, I suspect your OIII filter is from Baader. I had exactly the same problem. Baader had a faulty batch of OIII filters some time ago that produced seriously bad haloes. They will replace them free of charge.

    NGC6820 from the dual rig

    We all tend to run out of superlatives with your images Sara. It's striking - because of the colours. That dust pillar is really 3-dimensional. Yet another stunning image. Peter

    M33 in HaRGB

    That's an impressive M33 Wim - I do like the subtle use of colour. It's a personal thing, but I really dislike heavy levels of saturation that make images look more psychedelic than natural. As I consider myself a beginner I'm reluctant to offer opinions and advice to anyone, but lately I've been experimenting by combining L,R,G, and B all together to create a super luminance. My thinking is that the sky background is where the noise is greatest (given that the signal to noise ratio is lowest) and so by creating a super luminance I'm getting to use all of the data to minimise the noise level. With enough subs, and a dark sky, I find I no longer need to do any noise reduction in processing.

    PK 104-29.1 a.k.a. Jones 1 and WD 2333+310

    Thanks Peter. Getting lots of data helps make processing easier. People complain that this PN is featureless - but with enough data the features appear.
