    As a young kid, I always wondered what was out there among the stars. You're most welcome to join my quest to capture the night sky!

  1. Yes,I think you're right. I was experimenting a little with saturation levels. See other edits on my astrobin like this one: https://astrob.in/393656/B And I've edited the saturated version by adding Ha data. Which one do you prefer?
  2. You will not regret the camera Steve, it has done wonders for me, especially combined with the Ha, sii and oiii filters.
  3. Hi folks, Here my SHO attempt for the Rosette nebula as captured with my 80mm APO refractor and ZWO1600MM cooled. Ha; 25x300s Sii; 15x300s Oiii;27x300s About 5 and a half hours in total. DSS used for stacks, photoshop to combine RGB in SHO (different layers) and extra Ha as luminocity layer. Hastalavista green used to eliminate green and post processed in photoshop / lightroom. Ha only: SHO combination: Thanks for watching, feedback is welcome. Clear skies!
  4. Hi folks, I decided to make a post processing video to show you what I did to combine my orion and horsehead nebula images. Always happy to hear how I can improve my workflow, so if you have the time i would like to hear your thoughts. I'm still using deep sky stacker and photoshop, so that's ofcourse up for debate. My english is sometimes poor...but hope it is not too painful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpGxrcfpWFI All feedback is appreciated, I'm eager to learn. Clear skies!
  5. Hi Folks, Started from scratch on my Hargb data. 80mm photoline refractor and zwo1600mm pro on a celestron avx. Post processing in dss and photoshop. Thanks for watching!
  6. Nice! I have the 1600mm pro cooled, does wonders for me. If you can guide and extend your exposure time, you'll be amazed!
  7. Hi all, Finally some clear skies in the Netherlands after a rough winter. Although the horsehead is not so far above the horizon and above the worst part of the sky from my backyard (city centre) I thought I would give it a try anyway. My sequence was as follows; 26 x 300s Ha 27 x 300s Red 30 x 300s Green 26 x 300s Blue Stacked with Deep Sky Stacker and processed in Photoshop. Camera used was a ZWO1600MMpro Clear skies!
  8. Hi folks, I couldn't resist during full moon, went ahead and imaged the Orion Nebula. Sequence was as follows: 30x30s, 30x60s and 30x120s for each of the RGB's 30x30s and 30x300s in Ha 7 nm. cooled at -25C Used high dynamic range in Deep Sky Stacker to preserve the core. Pictures came out with light pollution from the moon, but I'll share the picture anyway so you know what to expect. Post processing was done in Photoshop, I combined all the stacks of RGB and Ha there, used some hue/saturation filters and some other stuff. Thanks for watching, feedback is welcome!
