I am processing more of the data from the Deep Sky West Tak 106. This was collected in January 2017. Filters are 5nm Astrodons. Camera is a QSI 683. The Tak 106 is un-reduced. Data as follows: SII: 16 x 1800s Ha: 21 x 1800s OIII: 17 x 1800s For a total of 27 hours. It was put together using the SHO-AIP script in PixInsight. Then it was back and forth (several times) between PixInsight and Photoshop, trying to get something that looked OK. I also went back and forth on how much 'processing' I should do on this - I had more garish versions, but eventually settled on this one.
I did a quick (7 subs) image of the region around the Flaming Star Nebula and posted it... ... but I knew a few more subs would really help. I managed to get some over the last couple of nights. Both nights were a little murky but they were largely clear so I shouldn't complain.. This is a great region of the sky with loads of Ha objects, clusters, odd bits of nebulosity and so on and doing a slightly more widefield image allows me to capture more than one type of image at a time (value for money and all that!). Using a modified Canon 650D through a Borg 55FL f/3.6 scope and an IDAS HEUIBB filter, 30x 200 secs (guided) here's a reworked version as there's so many objects in there I thought I'd put an annotated copy in there two (manually - can't figure out the Pixinsight way to do it...). It's not perfect... there's artefacts in there caused by me stacking (and keeping) some subs that were taken at an angle to the rest..a practiced eye should be able to see that Actually, an unpractised eye probably can too I really must learn how to put pictures up here that don't get brutally jpeggerised... Oops - nearly forgot - does anyone know what the object at the top left is..? (The little red smudge...)
