Presenting my first attempt at Bi colour imaging. This is the Rosette Nebula (NGC2244), which is located in the constellation of Monoceros. Telescope: Orion 80ED Mount: Sky Watcher HEQ5PRO Camera: QHY9s Mono Filter wheel: QHYFW2 Filters: Baader 7nm Ha, 8.5nm OIII Exposure: 300sX30Ha, 300sX22 OIII captured on the nights of 1st and 8th January 2019 Stacked in Deep sky stacker, proceed in Pixinsight, finished in Photoshop
Hi All, Anyone using unmounted filters and QHYFW2M here? Please tell me what I am doing wrong? There is no manual to install filters and the below pic shows what I have tried. The wheel was working when filters weren't present, but isn't working after installation. There are a few brass threaded spacers I have no clue what to do about them.
A very rushed "First Light" image of my new kit. Many friends here know what I've recently purchased, but officially here is the announcement. Its a QHY9 Monochrome CCD camera with a Slim filter wheel for 7 x 36mm round filters. There are also LRGB Ha OIII and SII filters purchased. I also got a QHY5L-II guider and some other adapters to fit the whole thing together. After a couple tries, first light was last night and i've deviated from the M42 aka Orion Nebula image. This is the Rosette Nebula (Caldwell 49), and its associated cluster NGC2244 are approximately 5000 light years away in the Monoceros Constellation. Image is a stack of 18x300s in H-alpha lights, no darks and flats taken. Stacked using Median method in Deep Sky Stacker and quickly processed in Photoshop using only crop, levels, curves and unsharp mask. C&C are more than welcome.
