NGC7000 Bicolor with QHY5L-II at 50mm

Recommended Posts

Gave this target a go over the last few clear nights with the QHY5L-II Mono and a 50mm lens (stepped down to F/2.8) for a wide field of view.

No guiding as this this is usually my guide cam, but at only 50mm there was no problem with tracking at 300 sec, and only minor issues at 600 sec.
Ha was quite bright in the  300 sec exposures, but OIII was much more faint then I had thought and barely showed up in the 600 sec exposures. After some hours of OIII it started showing up though.

Although low res, I think it turned out quite ok. :)

Ha: 37x 300s + 28 dark
OIII: 27x 600s + 72 dark
Total exposure: ~7.5 hours


Alternative version with increased colors, but maybe it's a bit too much..?
