IC1805 Bicolor (H-alpha/OIII)

Recommended Posts

Last night I used the TEC-140 to record an entire night IC1805 (Heart nebula). I imaged from about 12 midnight to 6 in the morning while I was sleeping. Results was 11 images of 30 minutes in OIII. I combined these with my earlier H-alpha images. Then I created a synthetic green channel from the H-alpha (red) and OIII (blue). I like this combination a lot because it keeps stars natural colored and gives a nice color balance.

Now just one more night S2 data... :)

Info:

TEC-140/NEQ-6

SXV-H9 CCD camera

Astrodon 3nm OIII filter/Custom Scientific 4,5nm H-alpha

11x1800s OIII / 9x1800s H-alpha

Hiya :)

Hope you don't mind, but a quick play shows that there's still more data there that can be teased out:
