Rosette Nebula

Recommended Posts

I hope all of you were able to get out last night.

I managed to capture 10x15min on the Rosette Nebula.

Teleskop Service 65mm, QHY8, EQ6 Pro, AS120MC guiding through an Altair 60mm, processed in Pixinsight

this compares the 1 hr of data I got on the 2nd to the 2.5 hours captured last night - big difference :-)

Hi David,

Superb image and thanks for sharing, as we're SGLXI neighbours again I'll swop you some beer for an AP tutorial.

Keen to get out tonight but you've guessed it - it's now cloudy.

Regards,

M

Looking forward to the party Mark - and more than happy to help out on the AP - I'll just be observing so a good technical "fix" on the cameras, software and wires will be welcome :-)

....and when I fail to find the answer we can always consult "The Oracle" :-)

Regards,

David

      The Rosette Nebula, with its inner star cluster NGC2244
      A pseudo-HDR image because it's the combination of several developments from the same stacking result (could not bring out the colored nebula and master the stars in a single dev).
      Gear: Olympus E-PL6 with Skywatcher 130PDS and CC on Omegon EQ-300 tracking RA
      Capture: 10 × 60s × 3200iso, no darks/flats
      Processing: Regim 3.4, Fotoxx 12.01+
      Site: 50km from Paris, usually Bortle 4-5

      This is the SHO result of my first imaging object with the cooled Canon 40D. 
      Through out the imaging, the camera failed a number of times due to condensation buildup inside and so this is a result of two different 40D bodies and sensors. I captured some HAlpha data with the originally cooled 40D before it failed and the second half of the HAlpha, OIII and SII are captured with the second modded and cooled 40D
        
       Exposures: SII: 30x1200s HII: 30x600s OIII: 30x900s ISO1600
      Telescope: BOSMA Beta RE
       Focal length: 500mm

      Wrapping up in double layer goose feathers I braved the obsy last night.  I planned a tour of Auriga with a view to chucking in some favourites.  I set up the ED150 on the AZ EQ 6 and fitted the WO quartz diagonal accompanied by my ES 20mm 82'.  I stuffed my Astronomik 1.25" UHC (bargain price thanks @FLO) in my pocket too.  This set up required the retro children's playroom chair with the legs sawn down due to the position of Auriga. I spent about half an hour checking the plethora of open clusters sprinkled in or near the Milky Way.  The sky was one of the best this season so it was a jewelled spectacle and the ED150 reveals such sharp colours enabling me to distinguish the cooler stars in some of the clusters particularly the occasional red giant.  As Monoceros reached the meridian I moved to the open cluster associated with the Rosette. Now, for all my efforts over the years, the emission nebulosity has eluded my eyes but tonight with this newish 6" frac I was somewhat taken aback to see a doughnut appear in the view.  Switching to a view with the UHC filter was nothing short of astonishing!  It wasn't just there; I was falling into its centre.  Texture, depth and dark globules were easily discernible.  The extent was slightly larger than the FOV with the 20mm so I slewed slowly around and the perimeters and varying consistency of the Ha emission were easily picked out.  I spent a long and happy time soaking this up; it was truly outstanding.  Thoroughly recommended.  I retired happily to the warm kitchen and toast.

      Presenting my first attempt at Bi colour imaging. This is the Rosette Nebula (NGC2244), which is located in the constellation of Monoceros. 
      Telescope: Orion 80ED
      Mount: Sky Watcher HEQ5PRO
      Camera: QHY9s Mono
      Filter wheel: QHYFW2
      Filters: Baader 7nm Ha, 8.5nm OIII
      Exposure: 300sX30Ha, 300sX22 OIII captured on the nights of 1st and 8th January 2019
      Stacked in Deep sky stacker, proceed in Pixinsight, finished in Photoshop
