  1. M81/82

    Imaged with a ED120 at f7.5 Canon 450D 36x400 secs in RGB.(ISO 400). 24X450 secs in Ha. (ISO 800). No calibration frames were applied. Cheers. Mick.
  2. NGC1499

    The Californian Nebulae. This is a sum of 24x180 secs in RGB and 20x450 secs in Ha. Taken with an ED 120 and using a Canon 450D with clip Filters. I found this difficult to process a partial Narrow Band Image. I tried to blend the red data of both the RGB and Ha. Anyway it is what it is. Cheers. Mick.

  6. Turning off the noise reduction filter

    Ok. I can only speak for the 450D though. Turn the camera on. Press menu (top left) Along the top row there is seven icons. Arrow across to the sixth icon (yellowish) using the butttons that surround SET. Click on Custom Functions (top one) Press SET Again using the left and right buttons scroll through untill you see long exposure noise reduction. TURN OFF. Scroll to next which is High ISO noise reduction. TURN OFF. I,m not saying this is correct, but it is what i have done, need to to test out. Cheers. Mick.
