Horse & Orion Nebula widefield

Recommended Posts

I n s a n e l y good! Jaw dropping to say the least. Out of curiosity, did you add the diffraction spikes? I had a look on your web site too and it's phenomenal work you do.

I really wonder why I bother imaging now haha :-)

Stunning image. My only criticism would be (looking at the high res version) is that some areas - M42 & the Horsehead, for instance, appear wonderfully crisp. But other areas are lacking the same level of detail. I'm assuming you have used extra data in the high interest areas. Nonetheless a cracking overall result.

I downloaded your image and showed it to my band members (not stargazers)

They were truely staggered at the image, the detail, and how far they could zoom in without loosing quality. It changed the entire night, with the main topic - SPACE.

:icon_salut:

THANK YOU SO MUCH AND WELL DONE IT IS THE BEST I HAVE SEEN OF THIS REGION!

Lovely pic, and great detail. I also have the same question. Did you overlay different M42 and HH Flame data sets?

Thank you all guys.

Yes i admit it tonofbricks.gif i find it over-processed too scratchhead2.gif

About halos....

Don't forget that fs60 it's not an apochromatic refractor (maybe a little better that fpl-51 ed's).

I forgot to say that i have use some extra data from last year (Ha with ed65quad).

For dif.spikes i'm using carboni's starspikes pro .

Anyway thanx again for your so kind comments cool.gif

p.s. @ themos This is the 14" orion uk newtonian on my old neq6 (I'm shooting planet mars with qhy5).About rc i will have some good results soon :icon_salut:

What a stunning widefield it really brings into perspective how much dust there is. I think it might be good to get some more RGB as the Ha might be dominating it.

BIG BANG! (a more logical exclamation, ie instead of blumming hell/good god!/jesus christ!)

Your website is excellent. Are you famous? Your photographs are mind bogglingy brilliant.

I'm pretty sure that Aggelos has had an APOD... there are a few great photographers in Greece.

Excellent doesn't even begin to describe this image....not only beautifully captured and processed, but superb composition.

It would look perfectly in place at a very large scale on a wall in a major art gallery :)

What were the skies like at the site this was imaged?

Cheers

Rob
