Jelly on a windy night.

Recommended Posts

Hi Every one I was lucky enough to catch IC 443 (Jelly fish Nebula )on the Thursday just gone,

105 minutes of L subs 1 x bin and 20 minutes of rgb at 2 minutes subs at bin 2,

I found this one of the hardest things to process, don't know why,

I must have had several re takes on trying to make this look as natural as possible ,

but the red background was over whelming, I don't know if the red is naturally there

 or not but I ended up with this in the end,

Taken with a Atik 383L and Ewf2 filter, 2 inch Baaders rgb filters scope was the

WO  Zenithstar 71ed 2013 with R/f @F4.7  FL 325mmall on top of a Sw Neq6 pro

Thanks for looking and clear skies to us all

Paul

I think that's great. If you'd like to compare the location of background red with our widefield it's here, but I think you're on the money. https://ollypenrice.smugmug.com/Other/Best-of-Les-Granges/i-rVgNmLK/0/X3/IC443%20M35%20Monkeyhead%20HaOIIILRGB%20Web-X3.jpg

You've done well without an Ha layer. Our LRGB was pretty thin on its own. The Ha really pulled it out. If you have OIII there's a nice  green/blue outer shell as well. If you don't get any Ha do you know the Ps Selective Colour trick? Just go into Selective Colour, Reds, and move to top slider left. It somehow 'pops' any Ha.

Great shot of what, I agree, is a difficult target.

Peter

Thanks Peter, yes it was a lot harder than I thought

Ill know next time around.

Thanks Olly, I shall have a tinker, I suppose that's the hardest

part of Imaging deep sky, trying to sort the chaff from the wheat

so to speak.

I've always struggled with this one in LRGB, but your version looks really good - it's a rich H-alpha target though and if you can acquire this it will likely lift the image further.
