NGC 896 , part of the Heart Nebula. This was my first attempt at Narrowband imaging carried out of the August bank holiday weekend 2017.

Ha 12 x900sec, OIII 14x900sec, SII 14 x900.

ED80pro, NEQ6 Pro MOunt. ST80 with Starshhot Guide (PHD2)  Atik460ex Mono

Processed using DSS and Photoshop 5 to best of my ability at the moment.

I am no expert by long way, still lot to learn but very pleased with this image.

Lovely detail and structure throughout! Maybe increase the contrast to have more darkness to the dark areas! Fab image though

Thanks. This is first image I have done using Narrowband Filters and ATIk460 which I purchased last Summer, so I am really on a big learning curce, as I am with Photoshop but I am getting there, I think  :)

'curve' or 'curse' ... either way, both work for me!  

Nice start.
