Greetings, all. I was fortunate enough to be able to comfortably drive to a location in the path of totality for the Great American Eclipse which happens to be the Cherokee Indian Reservation in North Carolina. The wide-field images were shot using a fully-zoomed 50-300mm lens attached to a Nikon D3200; the tighter images were shot through my 127mm Mak using a Nikon D50. I had to remember to abandon all filters during totality - and, of course - to just look up! Truly, a life-changing event.
Here is the North American Nebula in the Hubble pallet and HA. I'm still a relative novice to the Hubble pallet adjustment and didn't want to overcook it? Most probably it can be pushed a little further? The image was capture using the trusty ST10 and the BabyQ FSQ85 over the course of this month. I have been battling with the weather to complete this before my holidays start tomorrow!!! 12x 800sec HA 17x 600sec OIII (2x2binned) 15x 600sec SII (2x2binned) I binned the OIII and SII since these are very weak in the nebula and don't contribute much in the way of detail. The HA data has been used as the GREEN channel and also a Luminance channel for the final image. The HA data is a little wider since I have had some small alignment issues between sessions, still setting up and tearing down my kit each night / session This is the alternative colour schema, I suppose that there is no wrong or right colour schema its just down to your personal preference? Which one do you like?
