Town Center Elephant

Recommended Posts

I have moved from a lovely darkish rural home to a limited sky view place just off Cheltenham town center, so my imaging has taken a turn for the more challenging. Seeing a half saturated background using a R filter after 120 seconds is depressing, but narrowband to the rescue. Here is an effort on the Elephant's trunk. I struggled to process this, as LP data is much harder than dark sky data. I have had it easy for too long!!!

TS60ED, HEQ5, ASI1600. 50 x 5min Ha, 22 x 5min Sii, 30 x 5min Oiii and some very over saturated RGB for the stars, no more than an hour total for them, as it was pretty bright...

Welcome to orange sky land Matt, still a very nice image.

On the bright side you'll be handily placed to attend the SGL star party :grin:

Much as I would love to come to the SGL star party, if plans work out, this Cheltenham visit will be a short term thing unfortunately for star party action.

Nice image Matt... commiserations on losing your dark sky, but you can look forward to developing your processing skills even further to compensate... and spending more on filters :(.
