Hello! I'm from Hungary. This is my first post. I am glad to be here. Recently I'm trying to sketch some deep-sky objects. I've made this observation yesterday. Cygnus was near to the zenith and the sky was pretty dark. NGC 7000 is one of my favourite target. I like to observe it with any telescopes, especially with RFTs and with UHC filter. Please excuse my language errors. Gyuri
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?
In June, I managed to get just over 11 hours data for an SHO Pelican Nebula. SGP's Framing & Mosaic wizard makes it relatively straightforward to plan mosaics built upon an existing image. This, therefore, is a two-panel mosaic of the North America and Pelican nebulae in SHO captured using my dual WO Star 71 Rig. Details WO Star 71 x 2 Moravian G2-8300 x2 Mix of Astrodon and Chroma filters Ha - 32 x 12000s = 10 hours 40 mins OIII - 24 x 1200s = 8 hours SII - 24 x 1200s = 8 hours That's 26 hours 40 mins total I built the mosaic using a trial version of AstroPixel Processor. (I also did it in PixInsight, but APP seemed to give me more usable area on the combined panels.)
