Today's APOD of the Bubble

Recommended Posts

Friends,

Last summer Wim @wimvband I entertained ourselves with processing freely available data (subs) from the Liverpool Telescope, since Sweden is too light for AP that time of the year. I was just told that one of my attempts on the Bubble made today's APOD! Yes I know, the data is from The Liverpool Telescope, a 2 m RC scope on La Palma, so not collected with my own stuff, but I did the stacking (Nebulosity) and processing (PS).

Now I just have to come down to earth again...

Great job ?? 

I’d get a reddish smudge if I tried!

Congratulations Göran, that is an amazing bubble. A bit spooky perhaps (I'm sure it resembles an alien face), but incredible detail.

Thank you all!

This was a real light in an otherwise dull day where I have been forced to sit and listen to rumblings in a strategy seminar. So clearly it made my day!

Astrophotography is a broad church and, as long as all is declared, all is, to my mind, welcome.

Congratulations.

In the days to come Gorann it will be your photograph and it's selection for APOD you remember , nothing of your dull seminar will remain. :)

Tell's us all something about what is important in life - do what you love and enjoy it. :) Well done, it really is a fantastic photograph and great use of the Liverpool Telescope, well done again.

Today's strategy seminar is over and I had a few beers in the hotel bar to celebrate

Cheers!

A very worthy APOD, congratulations.

No doubt the raw data was first class, (the Liverpool Telescope is definitely not on Merseyside) but images like that don't just appear on the screen by themselves, so please take the credit:icon_biggrin:

Thanks Rodd!

I seem to remember having seen some outstanding images from you so why not submit some to the APOD people. Do you have your images collected somewhere, like Astrobin, so I and others can look through your production?

I have submitted images to APOD and APPOD2 as well.  Nom luck.  Did you submit, or was your image just found.  I wonder if you have to submit to get it.  There must be thousands submitted. Also,  I know that some of the Astrobin images of the day are not what I would choose for the highest distinction.

It was the Liverpool Telescope people that submitted it. They made a gallery on their net site of the images that Wim and I processed. So, this was a great and very pleasant surprise to me. The way APOD present it in the text (all about interesting cosmological features and nothing about how it was captured) suggest to me that images with interesting cosmology are more likely to win than just pretty images.

About Astrobin, I asked you since it would be good to see your images collected somewhere so I (and  others) could suggest to you what images you could try to submit to APOD or other sites. You are always so critical about your own images so maybe the eyes of others could be of help to identify your gems.

What is APPOD2?

Cheers

      Hi here's an image I took over the last couple of weeks. Its 30 x 10mins of Ha and 9 x 10mins each of RGB. I'm relatively new to AP so still getting to grips with everything (especially processing).
      I've read on here that using Ha as a lum file is not advisable so would really appreciate any advice on combing Ha with RGB in this type of image. Would adding Lum, Oiii or S data help.
      All feedback would be gratefully received.
      Thanks

      M52 and NGC 7635 (the Bubble nebula)
      16 18 x 10 minutes exposures at ISO 200
      SW 150PDS on AZ EQ6GT, Pentax K20D (not modified)
      The camera picks up some Ha. Enough for the bubble to show, but not enough for the background Ha. I'm not sure if I should keep the faint red or get rid of it and get an even background.
      Comments welcome.

      Hi all, I'm finally back imaging! its been way too long. 
      Still need to drive errors out of the system and i'll work on that as i go, but heres my first light from the obs.
      Equipment: 127 triplet apo with Atik428ex, guided by a Starwave 102ed with QHY5II (with 0.5fr) on an AZEQ6.
      3 x 5min subs + 3 x 10min subs in 12nm Ha; no bias frames, darks or flats.
      Stacked in DSS and processed in Gimp. I was battling with high cloud so not as much detail as i had hoped for.
      Cheers for looking.
