CELESCOPE

The very hard Stephens Quintet NGC 7319 and colour sort off

Recommended Posts

This i have never been able to do before ,as they are so small it just was,nt worth going for with my past set up , but delighted to have got some kind of image , would have liked longer , but after a hard night with one thing and another i cut it short at just 1 hour exposure , but at least i got the devils , a bit hard getting them on the chip ,but we got there , same set up as before , only i used the CLS Filter for this image .guided with PHD, subs were 20x 3 min , focal length, about F7 estimate with 6.3 reducer , but filter wheel attached to rear end .

Outstanding stuff you're turning out now Rog. Tried the Steve's 5 a while ago and its not fun at all. Love the Pelican's neck as well, the guiding seems to be working really well for you.

Yeah, come on Rog, 'spill the beans' on the technical detail!!, very useful info for others, and SteveL thrives on it :D

BTW, still guiding very nicely indeed. :thumbup:

Superb detail in the galaxies Rog and the colour looks good too. There's a reflection of the secondary surrounded by a faint halo occupying the L upper portion of the image. I've read how that happens somewhere but can't remember now. I think it does have something to do with the filters though.

Blimey Rog, you are almost ready for a Hubble like deep field image now.

Great galactic show this one.

Looks to me more like a very faint dust bunny. If you go massively overboard on the stretching there are a couple more, but they're not intrusive in the image.

Nice grab Rog. :D

The colour in the 2nd image looks out of line with the L though.

Nice one Rog - little buggers aren't they? i love the way the spiral arms "wrap" though.

Nice field of view for this object too.

I also note the presence of a few dust bunnies!!!!! I can't remember the ins and out exactly but i think that when they are casting such a shadow they are pretty close to the chip - e filters and the plate above the chip will benefit best from a little clean :D ( I am the guiltiest in this respect and i wont give up my crown lightly.)

Rog, Nice capture on tough & small target(s). I tried this one last year and didn't get near the detail / shapes that you did....Good job mate.
