Reprocess of the Tadpoles

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to knock the rust off the gear (and my processing skills) as it has been another typical Florida summer.  This is a reprocess of IC 410 that I collected with the 80mm EON back in 2012.  I am hopeful the weather will clear and I'll be back outside in a month...

This was imaged using 6 minute exposures for a total of 1 hour 18 minutes in the red, and 1 hour in each the green and blue filter.
Fifteen minute exposures were taken through a hydrogen alpha filter for a total of 5 hours and 15 min. integration time.  
Imaged from Ocala, Florida
Processed in Photoshop CS5
Imaging telescope:  Orion 80mm EON (FL 480mm)
Imaging camera:  QSI 683 ws

Now this is lovely Steve, colour wise I am not sure about accuracy but it looks really very nice indeed, personally I would prefer not as much highlighting on the tadpoles but that's me, who am I, am certainly not an expert.  :D

Thats an excellent  Orion EON 80 triplet you have there, its very sharp and well corrected, can I ask what flattener you are using?

Thanks Guy,

The EON is actually a doublet "apo" chromatic.  I use the AstroTech Field Flattner.
