  1. From the album: Deep Sky Imaging

    This exposure of the Orion Nebula region is really just a quick and lazy session since I didn't want to waste a clear night by doing nothing and the scope was already setup and focused so I wouldn't be spending much time on setup. I also didn't have a plan for imaging another object it seemed like a good idea being a bright and easy object to image. I already imaged this object in the past, but by comparing the setup, procedure and improved tracking accuracy of the past together with the now cooled 40D, I know that the result would have been an improvement if I would have dedicated the necessary exposure time, through the necessary NB filters. This image all consists of RGB/OSC, IRCut filtered, 31x15s, 32x30s, 16x60s, 10x90s, 11x120s ISO1600 subs.

  2. Hello astronomers, This exposure of the Orion Nebula region is really just a quick and lazy session since I didn't want to waste a clear night by doing nothing and the scope was already setup and focused so I wouldn't be spending much time on setup. I also didn't have a plan for imaging another object it seemed like a good idea being a bright and easy object to image. I already imaged this object in the past, but by comparing the setup, procedure and improved tracking accuracy of the past together with the now cooled 40D, I know that the result would have been an improvement if I would have dedicated the necessary exposure time, through the necessary NB filters. This image consists of all RGB or OSC (through the IRCut filter) 31x15s, 32x30s, 16x60s, 10x90s, 11x120s ISO1600 subs. I am not prepared to spend subsequent nights capturing narrowband subs on "Orion's Sword", at least not this year... perhaps next time M42 is in the sky and only if I reach near freezing temperature cooling on my sensor. Clear skies, MG
  3. Hi Astronomers, Image of the “Running Man” Nebula near Orion Nebula, taken in natural color through my 8" SCT at a focal length of 2032mm using an astro modded and cooled Canon 40D DSLR. Object ID: Sh2-279 - NGC1973, NGC1975, NGC1977, NGC1981 I captured around 90 minutes of sub data on 2nd March but a lot of the data from that night, about 60%, was poor with drift and star bounce due to over compensation with DEC corrections/DEC Backlash setting being too aggressive, and rejected as a result. During the next night the subs are coming out nice and stable. The above image consists of the best 12x30s, 12x60s, 24x120s, 20x180s & 12x240s ISO1600 subs, total time of 2 hours and 54 minutes. Clear Skies, MG

  5. From the album: Deep Sky

    M42 - The Orion Nebula, plus top left M43 - De Marian's Nebula (aka "The Running Man Nebula"). This is 30 x 30 second exposures, plus 22 x 320 second exposures in an HDR composite, taken 11th Jan 2014. Again I was battling a nearly full Moon as we seem to get nothing but rain around here when the skies are fully dark! This image was processed entirely in PixInsight. I hope to get some longer exposures to try to capture more of the surrounding dust. Imaging: Sky-Watcher Evostar 80ED DS-Pro + 0.85x, Canon EOS 500D (Unmodified), Hutech IDAS LPS P2, APT - Astro Photography Tool Mount: Sky-Watcher NEQ6, AstroTortilla, EQMod Guiding: Orion ST80, QHY 5, PHD guiding Processing: PixInsight Date: Jan. 11, 2014 Lights: 30 x 30", 22 x 320" ISO 400 Darks: 109 Flats: 102 Bias: 330

  6. Seasons greetings, all! HiloDon and I are at it again with another seasonal delight for our friends here at SGL! HiloDon provided the stellar images and I created the musical landscape and produced the video. There's a little surprise near the end! Hope you enjoy! For all who observe, have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Reggie

    M42.jpg

    From the album: Deep Sky Objects

    Messier 42 - The Great Nebula and the Running Man Nebula in Orion. A first attempt at using a DSLR for imaging. I could probably do with a light pollution filter to increase exposure time and I had some internal reflections that messed with the image so the quality is not as good as I had hoped. Once I have ironed out these issues I think I can get some really great images with this camera. If you want more detail the astrobin link is: http://www.astrobin.com/275634/0/
  8. Hi Everyone, This is my best M42 image till date. Every year I take a shot at this wonderful object and every year it teaches me something new. I started using Pixinsight only two days ago and the results are dramatic. I do take more care while processing and it has given me wonderful results. C&C welcome.
