Trifid Nebula and Webb's Cross

Recommended Posts

Last night I stood up a bit later than usual and tried my best to process this photo. The stars in the top left corner are a little bit eggy but I'm quite pleased with the overall result.

Location: South of Oxford, Bortle 5
The image is the result of 29x180sec ISO800 exposures taken with my 450D, stacked and calibrated in Pixinsight with 50 flat frames and 100 bias frames, DBE in pixinsight and everything else in Photoshop.

That really is excellent. And.

From Oxford and not somewhere in the Southern Hem.

Thanks. I think the IDAS LPS D1 helped a lot. The light pollution above Reading was absolutely horrible. I shot the Rho Ophiuchi complex with a camera lens and no filter and it came up yellow.

I managed to save it but it doesn't look great.FB_IMG_1532983057392.thumb.jpg.4907c5a481e5e8ddc20b339d5d26f040.jpg

That's a great image. A target I would love to image. Unfortunately not from my Obsy. ?

Those are some lovely tones and colors. Let me guess -- you were tempted to just crop out the egg-shaped stars, weren't you? I think the composition works very nicely this way.

I was never tempted to do it bevause I framed it in such way to capture both of them. I would rather try to fix the stars.
