  1. Maybe the sooner I get back to work the better - The Devil certainly does find evil work for idle hands! I have just finished wiring up the below changes to my rig. All in an effort to reduce set-up time and improve the dreaded cable management issue. In the next days I'll do a full test of all power and data connections. Individual tests so far are okay and balancing seems better than ever. Ultimately I'll take the whole thing outside and stick it on my new pier. And maybe even one day it will see first light. Ciao!
  2. An attempt at the Pelican from last week. About 3 hours in total of Ha, SII, OIII..... but the OIII layer was slightly out of focus. Probably over processed and not sure about the colours. Thanks for looking.
  3. Thanks! It's just 2 hours of LRGB so maybe I have tried to drag too much out of it.
  4. Yes, down on the South Coast....near Malaga.... I blame the seeing.....too humid at the moment.
  5. Great image Alacant! I was just about to post my image of M33 (from last night) when I saw this. I can't compete with your image. I may post it separately though to see if I can get some advice. Mine is with a refractor (ED80) anyway. Cheers Steve
  6. You did. It's under a separate posting I did in the Beginner's section.
  7. Hi All, This is only about 3hrs 20m of total integration time so more data would have been better. Other suggestions on how I could improve this are most welcome. Cheers! Steve
  8. Thanks Adam! Yeah, I noticed the green when it was too late. Doesn't help being partially colour blind. And thanks for the processing hints. Noted.
  9. I think there was too much of a green cast to the last image, so applied some SCNR.....
  10. I've spent so long on the processing of this one I have probably overdone it. Time to stop now. Only about 3hrs 20 total integration in L, Ha, and RGB. Bortle 5 skies near Malaga, Spain. Skywatcher Evostar ED80 on HEQ5 - ZWO ASI1600MM. Fully processed in PixInsight and using some of the EZ Processing Suite tools. Suggestions for improvement welcome. Unless it's to say I need more data (I know that).
  11. A first attempt at the Heart Nebula. Struggled with various aspects including the processing. Not a lot of data and very noisy but thought I'd post it anyway.
  12. 70 minutes (30 Ha, 20 OIII, 20 SII) from last night on the Trifid. First attempt on this target. Would have been good to get more data and I'm struggling with focus between filters. Thanks for looking.
  13. Thanks Mark! Yes the colours are a bit quirky. For this first attempt I just chose APP's "HSO1" composite formula to see what would happen and decided to stick with it. I'll try some other options to try and get a more natural look next time. Thanks for the tips!
  14. I hope this image does not put anyone off their dinner! A quick process of last night's data. About 2 hours (total) of Ha/OIII/SII - M8 The Lagoon Nebula. I will re-process this when I have more time and will take a bit more care, but if anyone has any processing suggestions they would be welcome. I'll probably try some Star Reduction as well as trying some de-noising etc, etc. I know more data would be better - but there we are. Thanks for looking. Steve
