Dumbell Nebula - HA -

Recommended Posts

This was my second and final image of last night after wasting a lot of time.

ED80 at F5 HA filter 10 X 5 min subs guided ATIK16HR.

No real processing, as haven't learnt that yet.

I did take some RGB subs as well, but have no way to put the IR filter in line with the RGB one's. Tried processing though and did not come our very well LOL.

It's all a learning process.

Regards

John

Hi John , hope u dont mind me saying , i would stay away from HA for the Dumbell , it works a treat using the cls filter , just a tad overexposed in the core, but otherwise its down to getting to grips with the processing

Yep, I have to agree with Rog on that one. It is a bit overexposed at the core, but otherwise a nice image John.

You are doing great John. That is a good effort, and every one you do will imrove on it's predecessor, it's called learning, and that is exactly what you are doing me lad. Lots of advice coming in from good sources, and it's bound to help.

Ok Rog all noted. We certainly chose the same objects the other night.

I was playing on the dumbell to see what effect doing RGB without the IR filter in line with my Meade DSI pro filters would have. The answer was very starane colours. Have now ordered some Astonomics ones so they have IR built in. Anyway took some HA as well. I love this ED80 compared to the SN10, which is very big.

Many thanks for all replies.

the ED80 is my fav as well John. as i say the only downside is getting small planatery nebula and some Galaxies,thats why i have the Celestron c11 and now the Skywatcher 200p , both give nice size images.
