  1. Seems that this is now ASTROBIN IOTD I've created a new version with Akira Fujii effect stars, be interesting to hear your thoughts on this?
  2. Stunning! Curious as to how you have processed the stars to create the lovely soft haloes around Altinak etc.?
  3. Thanks Mark! Very kind of you, cheers! Cheers JemC - really appreciate you dropping by and taking the time to comment!
  4. Thanks very kindly Martin! No tobacco products were involved, just lots of patient research. For thos interested, I have found GALAXY MAP to be a useful resource for finding new targets. There's an idea! Thanks Craig
  5. Thanks Peter, it may very well be a first But you never can tell for sure!
  6. Many thanks Allinthehead - Vela has many rich pickings for us astro nerds
  7. Thanks mackliedlm, we’re lucky enough to have some great targets down here in this hemisphere Hi yes, thanks very much- that’s the full frame with only a tiny bit of cropping cheers Andy
  8. Gorgeous image, very well done on all levels!
  9. Hi Folks! Resembling a hot chilli these superheated blue tendrils of ionised oxygen are remnants of a spectacular supernova that occurred some 11,000 years ago. Located in Vela some 800 LY distant, this small isolated section of this vast region silhouetted against a background rich in Ha seemed worthy of attention it’s own right - as after an exhaustive search, there don’t appear to be any stand alone studies online of this beautiful waveform. Photographed over three nights from my light polluted suburban backyard in Melbourne, Australia. Acquisition was made using Stell
  10. All good Mick, thanks for your positive feedback - most welcome! Cheers
  11. Nice sharp Rosette with natural star colours. You've blended the Ha in well. Not sure which method you used but FWIW this one is my go to for HaRGB. Cheers Andy
  12. Good start! M78 is a very dim target, so you're probably going to need at least 5-6 hours data to bring the noise down, and yes as mentioned above, dithering makes a huge difference.
  13. Nice collection of Classics there Ken
  14. Thanks very much for the nice feedback - starless images can indeed be polarizing. I usually replace NB stars with RGB ones, but I leaving the stars out of this one had revealed much detail that we usually overlook.
