Pleiades with Quattro and 1000D

Carl M

Recommended Posts

First time taking flats and adding them to an image, they make processing a lot easier when the background is uniform. I don't think they were perfect but they've definitely helped. Will be making sure to take them for every image in the future.

28 x 300s at ISO 800 - 2hr 20mins worth of subs

36 flat frames, no darks or bias

Dithered with APT and PHD2

Full spectrum 1000D with Astronomik CLS-CCD clip filter

Quattro 8s on EQ6 guided with ST80 and ASI120MC


Thinking of revisiting this soon to get some more data and eliminate some noise, but pretty pleased with what's there in 2 hours and 20 mins.

Thanks for looking,

Great work carl?? Btw  Startools has some modules to help with noise if you weren’t aware  and it’s free to try 

I may give Startools a try. I can do it in Photoshop too but the trouble is I want to bring out more dust as well as eliminate noise. Think for that it's best to just get more data, unfortunately had to throw away a load of subs from the end of the night.

Lovely! Great detail and star colour. 

Cheers! Your Ha images with the 1000D are mightily impressive, convinced me to make a 12nm Ha clip filter my next purchase.
