The Orion Nebula - a different processing technique!

Recommended Posts

This cross-stitch is now almost complete so I thought you might like to see an update. The full cross stitch is completely circular but this photograph has been cropped slightly for another purpose.

An incredible piece of work...  I dread to think how many hours have gone into this!   I'm sure I'd go cross-eyed within 20 minutes...

I can spot a bit of vertical banding :tongue:

No easy fix springs to mind, but working in Layers is definitely not recommended, lol.

All joking aside, this is seriously impressive. Hat, tipped.

Indeed, very impressive.

Now, if you were to spend as many hours collecting data as she has spent producing this ...

      HI All,
       
      I have an entertaining   video to share with you which is perfect for those just starting out and wanting to taste a bit of astrophotography without spending a lot of money. I image from London and managed to get a pretty good shot of Orion for just £150. This video runs through where I bought the equipment, why I bought  it and how I used it to capture a Orion and some of the trials and tribulations I had to deal with on the way. Any questions please ask!  Enjoy!
      FYI I shot this last year but with Orion now beginning to rise over the rooftops of London I thought this would be a good time to share it.

      Tried capturing M42 and horsehead nebula last night with my new Astro-modified EOS Rebel XT. During post processing I noticed these weird spots and lines across the image. Would you happen to know if this was because of the mirrors of the telescope (i.e. dirty mirrors) or is something wrong with the camera? What's weird is that this 2 images were taken with the same exact camera at the same exact position but some artifacts visible on M42 did not show up on the horsehead nebula.
      Btw I checked the mirrors of the telescope but I cant find the weird long spots

      Can anyone identify this Orion camera and perhaps provide me with a digital copy (or link) for the user guide?  I got this and it has no part number or any unique identifier to help me locate the documentation.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Re-processed to remove slight magenta tint caused by the non-uniform removal of light pollution by the DBE process ( it was being fooled by the very bright image centre ).
