NGC 7293 the Helix nebula

Recommended Posts

This always seems to be my "go-to" nebula when I am trying to knock the rust off the gear and get back into imaging and processing mode. This is my first time combining Ha and OIII data using the QSI wsg-8 and first time using OAG. It only took troubleshooting the Gemini-2 (new FW) and getting the Gemini.net ASCOM driver to behave with the SkyX but here it is for this year... 
NGC 7293 the Helix nebula 
Constellation Aquarius 

~700 light years distant 
Ha 20min subs totaling 1 hour and 20 minutes. 
OIII 20 min subs totaling 2 hours. 
QSI 683 wsg-8 
Losmandy g11 Gemini II 
AT8RC 
Taken September 26 and October 5, 2013

very impressive, one of my favourite deep sky images. you have done a very good job on it, certainly no evidence of being ring rusty!

Exquisite resolution. Really impressive. If you go nuts on collecting data you'll go deeper but, by Gad, you have some detail in there! Lovely.

How did I miss this one first time around.

One of my favourite targets and this is a stunning rendition.  Absolutely fabulous.

      Hi, i..m on Stargazers Lounge for long time ago, but now i have a new scope at last!!! The scope is a Skywatcher classic200p dobsonian, and i received it just one month ago. I.m really happy with it. For now, i.m using the stock eyepieces that come with the scope, a 25mm and 10mm super plossl 52. Yesterday i was received a Celestron Omni barlow, and that expands my magnification range. I posted some pics with my set. 
      Congratulations to Stargazers lounge team, this is one of the best sites to learn about astronomy and equipment. 
      Besf regards to everybody

      This is currently a work in progress. Playing around with Photoshop CC to try and extract more detail from this image. This image is not as cropped as the others I have posted.
