A quick Dumbbell

Recommended Posts

Greatings from Portugal :)

Just to post a quicky, made last night!

Well not that quicky since each sub is 40 minutes!

Tak FS102NSV @ 632mm + QSI532WS-M1 @ -15ºC

Ha (5nm) - 4x 40min

Regards,

paulo

I don't think I've seen an image of this showing so much outer nebulosity...!

Wow, those long subs have really revealed the outer envelope, looks great. Are you going to add some colour?

Good stuff Paolo. 40 minute subs has to be a record! The outer halo also responds well to O111 and stops it looking flat if you decide to add colour.

Thanks for the comments :-).

Yes I will add colour next time (I arrived today from my observatory...I only go there 1 time/month for 3 or 4 days. It is 250 km from oporto where I live!)

Last year I have captured the OIII layer with the C9.25 and bin 2x2. But I will make this one with the Tak not the C9.25...I only need a 5nm OIII filter. My plan is Ha, OIII and RGB.

But now I need to solve my conection problems (yestarday my Hub and computer had problems communicating. All cameras crashed, the planetarium, the focuser...the Gemini, well I real mess. Only after almost 3 hours I was able to resume! I need a more reliable system even if, this is the first time from years that this happened this way!)

regards,

paulo

Will be looking forward to the addition of the O3, the Ha alone is amazing, so much detail in the faint stuff...

What I love about this image is that it appears 3D without needing colour.. also a POTW in my view (that's two nominations now - the average standard is going way up!!)
