M57 from last night

Recommended Posts

Despite the fact that the Synscan is playing silly devils I did manage to image M57 last night with the ATIK camera.

Not fantastic, and fairly minimal processing but I liked the way the colours came out so I decided not to do any more.

The colours nice, and you've captured the two centarl stars, which is always good to do.

Great effort Geoff. All the components are there.

A series of frames with my ATIK canera and focal reducer. Got the polar alignment about right, as I had hardly any movement over the frames.

No guiding. That's something for the future.

Following advice proffered elsewhere, I have managed to get rid of the green stars more or less. As my Photoshop skills are rudimentary, the background needs work and the focussing is not spot on, but we keep trying.

I am my harshest critic (apart from the wife of course)
