M16 Eagle Nebula

Recommended Posts

This data was captured on the 9th July 2018.  I decided to come back to it as I felt it wasn't as good as I could do, and my processing skill has improved since then.

 

Atik 383L+

24 x 300s

12nm Astronomik hydrogen alpha

 

Canon 40d

14 x 300s ISO1600

12nm Astronomik Oiii

 

Total integration time = 3 hours 10 mins.

 

Stacked in APP, and processed in PS.  The Oiii signal was very very weak, so the colour balance isnt quite as I liked but I'm still happy with the improvement.  However sometimes I cannot see the problems until pointed out so please feel free to comment.  I added the original version below.  If you feel it is better in some aspects please also comment!

 

All the best

Adam.

I'm just looking on my mobile Adam, but even so it's obvious that the new version is a huge improvement, as the original looks like it may have been black clipped, and you've managed to bring out an awful lot more of the surrounding Ha. And at our latitude this is not an easy target at all, so congrats on a great version of this iconic DSO.

In fact, your image has convinced me to ignore the lack of any astro dark over the summer, and rather than down tools, just get on with doing some NB imaging, so thanks! 😁
