Rethinking the Fireworks.

Recommended Posts

While chatting to Sara about controlling bright stars I realized that I originally took this image with Yves a couple of years ago before I'd started using the RGB-only idea on field stars. This target is blessed (or cursed) with fine stars abounding, all determined to proclaim themselves brighter than the target galaxy! A prime candidtate for the RGB only system, which is what you see below.

TEC140 apo, Atik 4000 OSC and mono, HaLRGB. Can't remember the exposure times but there was planty of data.

Excellent Olly - Not too dissimilar from mine!!!! Your resolution seems better and sharper than mine - Is this potentially due to my scope and camera combo? You've also got a little more colour, and smaller stars, and ........... and ...........!! Not much like mine at all then really!!!!!

Great reprocess - there was a load of stars in this one that's for sure.

The TEC is a bigger scope, Sara, and it's about as good as they get optically. It easily out-resolves the Tak FSQ, just as it should.

Still footling with this one;

Lovely image Olly , puts my meagre effort to shame yet again . . . :p . . . I did however go a little wider and include NGC 6939 in the mix .

I'm planning to have a closer go at them next time out , swapping the ED80 for the 200PDS to get the image scale a little nearer to yours and then hopefully stitch the two together .

I want to move over to the Horsehead then and go closer in and eliminate that pesky Alnitak from the equation.

Steve.

I like the bag-of-gold-coins sort of look in the core, really nice details in there :)

Excellent work Olly, there is no doubt about the stars and what a star field of colour that is!
