First Shot at NGC 7000 Gulf this year

Recommended Posts

Late to get up and running this year but couldnt resist a go at one of my favourite regions in Cygnus.

Needed to reduce the colour saturation a lot in this image and overdone the OIII exposure (makes a change from the dominant Ha). Didnt need to tweak the colour balance much to acheive the gold red blue tones of the HST Palette.

Possibly lost some of the feint stuff in the dark rift between the NA and the Pelican Nebula due to boosting the contrast.

Yes, a little dark clipping but still a great image with superb detail :)

You've really nailed the colours on this one, they look so natural and just, well, right!

Which scope did you use for this one?

The colours are lovely, so far mine are still horribly green.... I guess sometimes it's worth losing some of the fainter detail to get the colours looking that good.

Thanks for the comments all, Plesed the colours seem right.

Tim, Used the Quattro 10 CF, (using 2in filters), had problems with vignetting using this scope with the Atik 4000 previously.

Still use flats though. I find that the combination of the fast F4 and the camera in bin2 mean I can get a reasonable NB image in one night.

Cheers

Lovely treatment on the colours, as James said this one tends to end up green unless you process it right.
