Dusty Taurus

Recommended Posts

Hi. This was shot last Thursday night. A feint molecular cloud 450 light years from earth which includes Cederblad 30 and LBN 782.

Plan here is a 4 panel mosaic.

Shot through a Takahashi Epsilon 130 using a Zwo Asi 071

Mounted on an AzEq6

Captured using SgPro, Stacked with APP, Processed in APP, PS, and PI.

Thanks for looking.

Richard.

Very nice. Lovely colours. What exposures? Not long if it was in one night which is even more impressive!

Thanks. Doh! forgot to include those details. 6.5 hrs in 150 second subs.

Another cracking image Richard, I started a try at the Little Eagle Nebula LBN777 in Taurus at the weekend.

Richard, really stunning. You have your kit singing a fine tune ??

Thanks Adam. Unfortunately i haven't had any luck getting the collimation sorted yet. I've been using a laser but the laser itself needs collimating which is proving difficult. I'm not overly fussed at the moment as the stars are fine until zoomed in.

Lovely image - it's very natural and has a real 3D effect to it. LBN785/Ced31 (to the left) looks like an interesting target for a close-up too.

Just saw you superb image. Congratulations! Your processing is spot on and at f/3.3 your 6.5 hours would probably correspond to 20+ hours with a refractor, so more data would probably not contribute much to what is already an exceptionally nice image.

That's very nice of you say. Thanks Gorann.

Anyone know what this is? I took flats for this session and i have subs from another target in the same session that doesn't have this. It looks like an edge on galaxy.

Look at the individual subs. It might be an asteroid that didn't get rejected all the way.

 

Really great image BTW.

I had a look in the individual subs and no sign of it. Hard to tell as it looks very feint, whatever it is.
