These are my last images of 2019 taken with my ED72 and 183mm pro to be replaced by a 533pro
These targets are not easy due to location trees etc except M1 , there was a bright moon as well so are all lucky shots
but at last i have taken them warts and all . My guiding was all off as well
Anyway a merry Christmas to you all and a Happy new year
In an effort to improve on my image of the Bubble Nebula from a few years ago, I decided that my existing data needed a longer integration time...... so at a total integration time of just over 26 hours here's the result. The image, taken with my Esprit 150, is an LRGB rendition with an Ha blend into the Red and Lum channels. I was particularly interested in seeing how much detail I could extract on the bubble itself, so I decided that it looks best cropped.
LIGHTS: L: 33, R: 27, G:27, B:23 x 600s, Ha:16 x1800s, BIAS:100, DARKS:20, FLATS:40 all at -20C.
IC4604 in LRGB Filters. Taking for Namibia during my visit in June 2019. This beautiful nebula is part of the rho Ophiuchi colorful cloud, i the center a 3 blue bright stars the reflect the blue light on the nebula.
Lum - 20 x 5min = 100min
RGB - 5x5min for each channel at BIN2, 75min
Total Exposure: 175Min (~3 Hours)
Telescope: ASA 12'' F3.6
Mount: DDM 85 Unguided
Camera: FLI 16200 Mono
Thanks for watching,

My first image of M76 A bit rushed as clear nights are a rarity now
30x120s Bin 2 Luminance ,SW 102 , ZWO 183MM Pro , OVL field flattener ,guided , processed in Gimp
Took some Ha as well but poor results for some reason
Seems an Oiii filter may have brought out some more detail
i know its not great but just chuffed to have imaged it
