  1. Very nice Olly. Always interesting to go after these unusual faint fuzzies... Pieter
  2. Indeed, you read my mind. The region next to this was imaged by Lorenzo Comolli and there are extremely faint traces O3 present in the whole area. http://www.astrosurf.com/comolli/d207.htm He focused on the G82.2+5.3 supernova remnant in DWB145 just besides my frame. I suspect there is something very interesting to see in O3 in the bottom left part of my picture. Something to try my 4.5nm O3 baader filter on. Pieter
  3. Great! Very nice and subtle. Pieter
  4. Thanks. You are forgiven. That does not go for the senior citizen who ran me off the road.
  5. Thank you! LeDu2 is right here; it is not very obvious in Aladin, this is the outline of my image. Regards, Pieter
  6. Hello all, Finally found some time to make another astrophoto (was 5 months ago...). I sustained a pretty bad cycling accident in February and was only able to carry my equipment outside again about 3 weeks ago. Great to be able to make an image again. This one was on my bucket list for several years and I have spent 20 hours on it the last couple of days. It's a 2 panel mosaic of a very faint and rarely imaged patch of nebulosity next to DWB145 in Cygnus. Thanks to Nicolas Outters for the inspiration! Scope: 10" f/3.8 homebuilt Astrograph with 3" Wynne corrector CMOS: ASI-1600 MM Cool (-15°C) Filter: Astrodon 5nm h-alpha Exposure: 20 hours in 5min subframes (2 panel mosaic) Mount: Mesu200 Thanks for checking it out, Pieter
  7. Always great to see nice B/W images like this. This is a very handy reference image to pick some potential new targets from! Pieter
  8. Very nice, I really like b/w images like this. Pieter
  9. Very nice, I'm impressed you got so many in a single night! Pieter
  10. Very nice! Was there any sign of the nebulosity in the lum channel? Pieter
  11. If you pan around in the Simbad sky survey catalogue around Eta Carina, should not be so hard to find I reckon? Can't help you with the exact coordinates. To be honest, I was never a fan of this Hubble picture. To my feel it is overprocessed. Looks like to much deconvolution was done on the nebula. Maybe it's just me...
  12. Very nice! This an often neglected area in Orion. I tried this myself last year but gave up due to poor weather. Pieter
  13. Looks amazing Tom! Such a wealth of details, could look for hours at this. Hats off for your persistence and patience to produce such a huge image! On to Cygnus now! Pieter
  14. Thanks all for taking the time to look and comment! Pieter
