This is my 1st attempt on this target, It's not going to win any awards i know. 🙂
Overall i'm happy with the fact that i captured data and you can tell what the target is, although without doubt there is room for improvement, also my processing skills are somewhat lacking to say the least,
this image was taken with
Sky-Watcher evostar 80ed (blue tube version)
EQ6 Pro Mount
Modified Canon 600d + 12nm HA filter (cheap version) 😀
All controlled with ASIAir Pro
24 x 5 minutes exposures ( 36 were taken but 5 not used )
Darks, flats, bias frames were also used,
Images were only stacked in DSS then saved as Tiff and transferred to Photoshop were only levels and curves adjusted.
Any criticism on the image is welcome, and thanks for looking.
IC1805 Heart Nebula
This is my first NB image - 16x600s of Ha plus 16x600s of Oiii - Sii will have to wait for another long, clear night.
I went with the blended channels approach in PixInsight 100% Ha in R, 40% Ha + 60% Oiii in G, and 100% Oiii in B. Using 100% Ha in R and 100% Oiii in G and B resulted in a very red nebula and a distinct red tint to the background.
Any help or suggestions on how it might be improved would be much appreciated - I essentially followed the LVA tutorial.
Thank you for looking.
