...It's enought to celebrate, heck it's enough to get drunk I say...! Yesterday it's was clear and so I had to make the yearly M42 image, it's already late for it as it's getting behind the roofs for me but even so i managed to get 7x10 min. subs and another 10x30 secs for the core, cooked it all an there you go, a clean and detailled Orion nebula The image is resized to 50% resolution but still there's plenty of details to take in, check out the trapezium fully resolved, in the full resolution image there's even E and a hint of the F component there at only 800 mm f/l...cool https://www.flickr.c...eposted-public/ Hope you enjoy, Cheers, P.S: Thanks to Jerry Lodriguss for the tutorial in PS, I allways get at it when processing images of M42...as I forget how to do it every time
Ok....ill start by admitting that I thought I was imaging the North American Nebula but missed and never noticed it was the Pelican until the processing. 4 x 10min, ISO 800 frames, no bias, no flats, no darks. Canon 1000D cooled to -4c at the camera sensor using my home made DSLR cooler box, CLS clip in filter. 130P-DS with a MPCC MK3. This was first light for my cooled camera and had some teething issues so only for 4 frames before it got light. I am am thinking its quite good considering but not much to reference that against. Also pleased by the noise reduction, not sure darks are required? Would love any comments on how I could better process it etc, as I am still quite new to astro-photography and only really have CS2.
Hi guys, Managed to get some OIII data to go with my previous Ha of the Rosette nebula, still very short (only 7x900 sec. frames of OIII) but it's strating to look nice, it really brings a new dimension to the image, not too happy with the blue halos though, once I have more OIII data I will reprocess, the weather is looking good today...let's see https://www.flickr.c...eposted-public/ Cheers,
Hi guys Don't get on here much but thought I'd post this to promote the kit I recently purchased a mono cooled Canon 450D from Luis Campos in sunny Portugal-by-the-sea. Or to be more precise I purchased one of Luis's cameras that had been previously purchased by his sidekick Paulo Mesquita, and hence got a good deal This image of IC 1318 was a bit of an experiment, the purpose of which was 1. to test my mount (which is currently being an ass) and 2. to see what a 40 minute Ha sub on a DSLR would look like. So this image is one 40 minute (2400 second) sub @ iso 1600 on Luis's Canon 450D, mono (debayered) and cooled. The sensor temp was about -4. Calibrated with a bad pixel map, flats and bias, and stretched ever so slightly in Ps. A bit noisy, but I guess that's to be expected
