Horsehead Nebula in Narrowband and BI - colour

Recommended Posts

Last night/this morning I managed a rare night where I had a bit of time to do a bit of Astrophotography. My target was IC434 The Horsehead Nebula. Two edits both in narrowband 

They are a bit soft but I do need to get a fair few more hours worth of data not to mention very rusty at post processing 1f642.png:) Last night I managed 3.5 hours - Each sub was 900s long, Ha x 9 subs, OIII x 3 subs and SII x 2 subs using:

SW Equinox 80 APO and Flattener
EQ5 Pro Synscan GOTO.
Guiding: SW 9x 50 finder guider and QHY5.
Atik 314L+ mono CCD
Baader HA 7nm, OIII 8.5nm
Using: Artemis capture, PHD, DSS, and Photoshop CC

Thank Carole,

I only have narrowband filters at the moment so willing to give any DSO a go :) Its been well over a year since I have managed to start finding time to get out imaging.  :)
