IC434 against all the odds


Recommended Posts

To get this (or anything in the Orion area) I'm aiming right over Chester City centre. Even with the LP filter the camera picks up a considerable amount of LP glow - ironically the modded camera is more sensitive to the LP so subs become washed out very quickly. Had to keep sub lengths down to 3 minutes for this at ISO400 so the stack was quite dim to process. Under the circumstances I'm quite please with it apart from the fact I seem to have picked up some vertical banding which I can't lose - I can live with it though.

Hope you like it.:)

1.5 hours of 3 minute subs at ISO400

Tried to capture this myself last night but had to admit defeat with my unmodded DSLR - looks like Emission Nebulae are out of my league at the moment.. Oh, and can barely notice the banding on this image - very well done sir!

Thank you Simms - very kind of you. Don't give up on emmission nebula - have a look at my photo album - mostly done with an unmodded camera - only modded it last Nov. Just takes longer subs, more of them, and a little patience, but well worth it. The modded camera will no doubt make it easier, but it's certainly not impossible.

Hi Tommy - thanks for that - it was through the 8" Newt (F.5) - I have done this previously with the small refractor but wanted a closer image of it.

I was hoping you would say that as that is exactly what I plan to use :)

Many thanks.
