Hi Folks,

Had my first foray into narrowband imaging last night. Set up at home and took 18 x 600s subs of the crescent nebulae with my Ha filter and stacked them with some darks, flats and bias frames. Still struggling a bit getting rid of coma etc but its work in progress. Quite pleased with the detail (looks eerily like a brain!) No processing apart form a histogram stretch. Will attempt to add a bit of colour when the DLB leaves us at the end of the month.

Great image Dec. Well done!

btw what equipment and camera did you use?

Thanks Gain. I used an Atik 383L and Atik EFW with ha filter with a 10" SW Quattro on an neq6 mount. I guide using a small Orion SSAG mini guider and scope but have just bought a slim oag so going to give that a go.

Ive been using a trial version of CCD inspector to try and improve the flatness of the images but still struggling/experimenting with spacers etc.

I use apt as the capture software and phd2 to guide.

What a belter Dec! Love it. I'll have to look up where this object is and see if it's doable from my garden. I have been looking for a narrowband target to have a go at.

Nice lunar images Mark - love the composition :)

Thanks Vicky, it's low in the NE very near Deneb.

And you got me wondering where that fitted on the dob

Just a favour for someone. If I'd got turning facilities it would've been done differently and quicker. Will be rectifying that soon though I hope with the purchase of a lathe :wink:

I always fancied a lathe but cheap Chinese ones a crap

and the Milford ones are so dear second hand

Yes they are. You mean Myford I'm guessing and yes they are dear  but also a bit too small for what I want.
