Rosette Nebula Ha OIII Bi colour

Recommended Posts

I had a lucky 3 hour clear slot last night again, almost ruined by my imaging PC not firing up, I twiddled and poked a few wires inside and got it started. I decided to take OIII on the Rosette to add to the Ha I have. Quite pleased I did now. I got 1h 42m of good subs. Processed both then layered in StarTools. So many different variety's can be made by shifting the amounts of Ha & OIII. This is my favourite so far.

The OIII seems to give the image depth.

Rosette Nebula.
15x360s Ha & 17x360s OIII ISO800
Canon 1200d modified with 12nm Ha & OIII filters.
Equinox 80ED Pro.
Guided EQ3 Pro.
Stacked with darks, flats and bias in DSS
Processed in StarTools.

Agreed about the 3d effect. I think it is the way the pink at the top of the central 'hole' get gradually deeper red as it gets towards the inner edge. Nice one.

I have enjoyed the narrow band filters, getting to know what is needed, 6 minutes seems to be the right amount for OIII, much less banding too :)
