Cone to Rosette - Now in colour

Recommended Posts

Just finished processing this one... its taken two days and three attempts. And ive had to forego star colour, but the end result has turned out quite clean :)

The Ha lum is mostly 12x900, apart from the Cone - which I have added another 2 hours to. Not sure what to do next, possibly still in Orion while its around. Phew...  glad that one is over!

 

12x900 Ha x6 (+2 on panel 4) = 20 hours

8x900 OIII x6 = 12 hours

Star71, Atik 383L+ NEQ6

 

Thanks for looking! :)

(as usual, I will leave a link for pixel peepers!)

Probably would have caught a lot more if I'd done another row along the bottom. But I dont wanna be doing that ;)

That is gorgeous, just had a look at the high res version and when zoomed in on the rosette it almost looks 3D, excellent :)

Thanks :)  thats part of the reason why I post a link with my stuff now, large mosaics can often look a little odd when squished down for broswers.

Looks fantastic Rob. Nicely processed with lots of detail on show.

My monitor isn't big enough really, we're all gonna have to get 4K screens now!

Thanks Barry :)

Actually, I might revisit the data at the weekend and tinker with it. Perhaps knock the saturation down a bit.... and something else I need to start doing is start processing things while wearing my glasses! Its only been a few months since getting them, and I noticed last night that wearing them really does help with getting the sharpness level right (otherwise I would end up oversharpening to compensate for my dodgy eyesight...lol).

Amazing, you caught these two iconic nebulae dancing, holding hands in the centre of your image. Top image in every respect!

Stunning image, incredible detail and colour. And tiny Hubble's variable nebula floating between them!

Now had a bit of a tinker with the data, and brought out a little more structure:

I think the only way to take this further is either a Cannistra process, or grabbing some SII.
