IC434 Horsehead Nebula and others

Recommended Posts

Yet another Horsehead (sorry).

Imaged on the 20th using my ED120 and Modded 1200d with UHC-E Astronomik filter - 27 subs of 300 secs at 800 iso. Stacked with Bias and flats. Dithered so darks not added. Tried adding darks but it got noisey.

Comments and suggestions welcomed as usual and thanks for looking.

No need to be sorry as you have some useful data Peter.

You may be able to stretch a bit more.

Beautiful image.. much better than my recent attempt! I would just say that the masks around the flame and horsehead nebulae are visible though

Thanks @wxsatuser I have stretched it a bit but it gets noisier. Thanks @abhoriel my eyes are not what they were and I did'nt spot that - any better do you think?

Nice data and image except for I think it's slightly red... particularly on the flame Nebula... but that is the side effect of modded DSLRs... what I did with my wide shot of IC434/Flame/Alnitak was to create layers in PS and separately color balaced each part, later masking it together...

      I managed to get some time to process another of my images exposed in January/February 2020.
      This was the last image when my USB port on my Astro40D failed. This happened while imaging this scene but it happened toward the end of the imaging plan so I got almost the subs that I wanted. The total exposure time was 16 hours and 16 minutes in ISO1600 for all of the subs, RGB, (OSC through the UV/IR Cut filter), HAlpha and OIII.
      Imaged through my 8" SCT at f6.3, 1280mm FL.

      Hi! I've recently acquired a new Astromodified Canon rebel XT and I've tried to take pictures of nebulas using it but I've noticed that there are these weird black artifacts that keep appearing in my images. Would like to know if anyone has experienced this before? Or are these dirt/dust specs on the camera, filter, and telescope glass? I've attached some of my edited and raw pictures for your reference. The black artifacts can already be seen in the raw image of the horsehead nebula and after stacking I think it got amplified. Anyway, advance thanks and I hope everyone's doing well.
