The bubble nebula. Not much to add about the target itself as it is already popular enough.

A combination of HOO shot with the ASI1600MMC + Astronomik narrowband filters through the 200mm newtonian tube removed from the dobson base and put on the EQ6-R.

About 6h of exposure through the Oxygen filter and about 9h through the Hydrogen filter.

Clicking on the pictures will redirect to the astrobin images where you can watch them in full resolution.

Thanks for watching and clear skies to you too!

I like more the wide field than the crop.

It is more smooth and give a wonderful eyesight of the area

That's why I put both images 😛

That's a beautiful image. I'd also be interested to know what exposure times and gain setting you used. I've tried high gain previously, but have moved to unity with exposures between 180 and 240 seconds for narrowband.

Edit: I see the exposure and gain settings are on the Astrobin technical card.

Thank you all very much! Happy that you like it!

I always use 300s subs @unity gain when shooting narrowband. Not sure it's optimal for every focal ratio, but I'm too lazy to re-shoot darks.

As Andy mentioned, you can find other technical details on the Astrobin technical card. Just click on the images.

Too drawer stuff. I need some clear skies 😱

These clear skies don't usually come for free. A couple of days nights ago we had ~30C. At midnight 🥵

      I spent Friday night collecting 13 hours on the well known Bubble nebula (NGC7635) together with two less known emission nebulas, Sh2-159 (down to the right) and NGC7538 (upper right). Aladin Sky Atlas gives no name for the black nebulosity in the centre.
      RGB collected with Esprit 150 and ASI071 (75 x 5 min). Ha collected with Esprit 100 and ASI1600 (27 x 15 min, Baader 3.5 nm Ha). Both side my side on the Mesu200 in my obsy. Ha added to the red channel in blend mode Lighten as 50%.
      The Bubble nebula came clearly out as more bluish-red than the others so expect there may be quite a bit of Oiii in it.
      Clouds moved in at 0100 and they have apparently decided to remian for at least a week.....

      Hi all, my second attempt at imaging over multiple nights, captured 60 mins Ha and a couple of 5 mins on Oiii and Sii on Christmas evening, then added more Oii and Sii on the 30th
      Total of 60 mins Ha 25 mins Sii and 30 mins Oiii
      Hubble mapped - SII,Ha,OIII = R,G,B. The Oiii data was very noisy but I'm fairly happy overall, also the ZWO Oiii filter caused a massive ring around Alnitak when stretched !
       
      Comments welcome, I know it needs more data and I will need to learn to be more patient but the year is running out  🙂
       
      Thanks for looking and have a good 2020.

      I went to my family house in the countryside and was able to take some pictures during xmas eve.

      Total exposure: 6h
      H_Alpha: ~3h (730x15s) --> R, G
      Oxigen III: ~3h (710x15s) --> B, G
      I didn't have a view on Polaris and could not spend too much time drift aligning (it was xmas eve after all :D) hence the short exposures. Moreover I dont have the proper connection rings to put my flattener on my mono camera so all stars off center are a mess :_(.

      In an effort to improve on my image of the Bubble Nebula from a few years ago, I decided that my existing data needed a longer integration time...... so at a total integration time of just over 26 hours here's the result.  The image, taken with my Esprit 150, is an LRGB rendition with an Ha blend into the Red and Lum channels.  I was particularly interested in seeing how much detail I could extract on the bubble itself, so I decided that it looks best cropped.

      LIGHTS: L: 33, R: 27, G:27, B:23 x 600s, Ha:16 x1800s, BIAS:100, DARKS:20, FLATS:40 all at -20C.

      As new condition ultra narrowband 1.25" Baader filter. 3.5nm bandpass for nice small stars.
      Bought and loved it, but using a DSLR again and have no use for this filter.
      £140, can post.
