Off centre M42 in HaRGB. 100D and Star 71

Recommended Posts

Subtler than my last effort at an HaRGB Orion!

RGB subs, 21 X 4 sec, 24 X 55 sec, 31 X 4 min, all at iso 800 with CLS filter. Ha 25 X 30 sec, 24 X 5 min, iso 1600. Blats and Bias, Dithered, DSS and PS and hours of processing!

I really like this a lot. Lovely subtle stuff and great core. Your hours of processing have been worth it ??

Like it! Greens just a tad high on my monitor?

Had a quick fiddle. the RGB values are now 41,40 and 42 on a dusty bit. It looks to have a magenta bias to me but my monitor isn't calibrated...

Really very nice image - I prefer the non-cropped version but they are both great images.

Can I ask what combination of cameras/scopes you used?

Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Adrian, I used a modded Canon 100D and my Star 71.

That looks great, how there is something not right with the brightest part of M42 (if you zoom in), the stars - I suspect in the Ha and RGB are not aligned to each other.  

A great step forward though.

To be honest, I think even 4 second subs might have been too long!  And you are right, on close inspection there is a misalignment. For some reason the Ha and RGB  images had trouble lining up perfectly, even though the same scope was used. The method I use involves aligning the layers three times, once when combining the Red channel and Ha Layer, once when pasting the combined layer back into the red channel and again when layering the Ha onto the RGB channel, so there is plenty of room for error! Perhaps I'll try again... but not today! :icon_biggrin:

 

Update... after some nifty detective work, I found the problem was in combining the two Ha images. They were not aligned properly, hence the double stars in the core!
