Orion with 35mm, now with RGB

Recommended Posts

As my previous thread, but with 24 x 30 sec each RGB. HII added to R, then trichromy, DDP and Histogram Stretch. Cropped slightly to take out the alignment edges.509078301_CroppedHRGB.thumb.jpg.cd16ade0e0e3901ad488ae70e0c28847.jpg

There are diffraction spikes from the diaphragm blades, as the RGB was shot at f/4, and a huge spike due to a power / telephone cable that I hadn't spotted. Bother.

Next time I'll shoot more wide open, put the exposure up to 60 secs each, and avoid that blasted cable.

Wow Dave, that's really colourful. I can never get colours like that in my stars - how do you do it?

Awesome field of view - head to tilt my head though, not used to see it at that angle!

Beautiful!

Any plans to get the 'arms'? With the level of details and colours in this shot, if you could get the rest of the constellation to add in, that would be mighty impressive...

Wow, even better! Thanks Dave 🙂

I have a soft spot for this FOV (can you tell?) - it's on my bucket list to get the whole of Orion into a mosaic with this sort of level of detail.

TBH, I've not done anything special. Sigma stack in AA5, then gradient removal.

Alignment and Trichromy with ratios and WB set to auto.

DDP and two rounds of Histogram Stretch, finally cropping off the alignment edges, JPEG with compression set to 10%

 

OK, Leica lenses have something of a legendary quality, but the Elmarit R is as near "bog-standard" as Leica gets.

The Elmarit series are Leica's middle range of f/2.8 lenses. Unfortunately they've become popular with film-makers (It's why I bought a shed-load a few years ago), so are becoming thin on the ground, and more pricey than they were. Have a look here

Ffordes

I use a Leica to Canon adaptor, and ZWO's Canon to M42 adaptor

Pentax M42 screw lenses are often pretty good. I want to get a Pentax-Canon and put my radioactive 35 f/2 on the ASI1600.

Dave, me again. Looked at your other post, you mentioned the ASI1600, if this is so, can you point me to the adapter used to fit the camera. I have a ZWO adapter for a Canon camera, presumably yet ANOTHER adapter is required? Thanks Alec

I think this is the one I used

Canon to T2

From FLO

And then the leica to Canon adapter? Thanks for your patience Dave

Yes. I had a heap of Leica to Canon adaptors from film making, so used one for this. Be careful though, ZWO's QC is a bit dodgy, so I can't get it off again. Will have to buy another adaptor.

Thanks Dave, appreciated. I've had a check and the leica might be a bit above my price range. Never mind. PS love your garden and the tropical plant covered in snow>

I didn't at first, but I'll give it some thought. I also have a few wider lenses, 28, 21 Leitz, and a 20 mm Zeiss.

I want to get more data on this first, as this is a bit thin ATM.
