Hello all This is my first attempt at the horse head nebula with no guiding and only a Canon 550d taken last night! http://www.astrobin.com/full/274255/B/ I have only done a little processing on it but I'm pleased! Any thoughts or questions welcome. Kind Regards Gerry
Ok, now we´re talking Another batch of 36x300 secs frames out of the oven, this was captured in two consecutive nights with little moon impact so better contrast then my previous M42 image, also the callibration seem to be spot on as I can't detect any gradients or poorly calibrated residual glows, happy happy Good to know there's still ample room for improvement as this is just over 3 hours so will add at least the double integration time, let's see what it brings. Setup is the same: -SW ED80 with Altair Astro 0.8X reducer (f/6) -QHY163M -Baader 7 nm filter -EQ6 mount -ASI 120MM with 50mm finger for guiding Stack of 36x300 sec. at Gain20 Ofrfset100 USB traffic set to 5 (will lower to 1 on future captures to see if the amp glow is further reduced) Here on Flickr: https://www.flickr.c...eposted-public/ Hope you guys enjoy, Luís
