Iris Nebula


Recommended Posts

Iris Nebula taken over two nights earlier this week. combination of 8 min and 4 min guided subs totalling about 6 hrs exposure time, all at ISO 800 on my canon EOS 500D. Flats taken the following mornings of dawn skies. Stock calibration Bias and Darks used. Processed in PI; DBE, Histogram transformation, TGV noise reduction, SCNR(red), Curve transformation, Median and Linear Multiscale Processing. Hopefully I've not over processed. In addition to the illuminated gas clouds, I love the dark areas surrounding the core which blank out the background of stars.

Excellent image. The Iris nebula has always been one of my favourites too for the same reasons. :thumbsup:

Really gives the feeling of looking down a tunnel of cloud - moody. Reminds me of the 70's Dr.Who titles.
