The UK Mini Summer in February! 6 IMAGES! :)

Recommended Posts

So we got pretty lucky last week and I also got lucky in the fact that my setup was working really well at the time! I managed to capture 6 different areas over 4 nights! :) Here are my results. Happy to take plenty of criticism as I know they aren't perfect so all advise is welcome! :) I thikn there may be something wrong with my conversion to jpg process as a lot of the red in the images seems to be missing from them. Still happy for now though :) 

Clear skies!

Very nice set! Like the exposure on M42 core...can see the Trapezium nicely.  Sadly my gear was down at my Dads since being away on holiday with it so missed all the clear sky! :(

Love the Leo Triplets and Markarian's Chain! May I know what are the total integration time?

Lovely set.  Good to see someone had fun getting some nice images during that lovely February summer we had.  I think they're all good. I like the Markarian's chain too and the last one (Rose nebula?). I think there might be more you could pull out the Orion Nebula. There is some nice detail there. 

I'm a bit envious of you actually because I kept seeing all that lovely clear sky in Feb, but for various reasons couldn't get out there to use it. Then this weekend when I went down to Cornwall where I do my astronomy we got storm Freya big time! Duh!

Thanks everyone! I think I am starting to hit my processing capabilities limits now as I'm just watching YouTube videos and copying things without properly understanding them so I thin kthere is still more to come from these images but it's all a good learning curve!

Most of these had at least an hour but I think M42 was closer 2 3 or 4 hours...

The one I'm not so happy with is the Rosette nebula but I think with some more subs I can get more out of it! :)
