The Heart Nebula (IC1805) from last night.

Recommended Posts

This is the result of last nights imaging run below

In total I captured 72 x 600s (12 hours) in Ha, using KAF-8300 based cameras ATIK383L+ and QHY9M.  Scopes were ED80s, side by side arrangement, on an EQ6, guided with a finderguider and ASI120MM (old model).

I used Baader 7nm Ha and Optolong 7nm Ha filters.  The data was processed in APP and PS.

If anyone feels like comparing the filters separately I would be very happy to post a raw or stack of each of them.  It might be a useful comparison (same sensor, same scope, same skies).

I will add Oiii and Sii and more Ha to this, as I really like the details going on.  The guiding isn't perfect and according to Metcheck, the seeing was 8 (which is bad) and the moon was out.

 

Comments and advice, as always more than welcome.

Adam.

Very nice Adam, look forward to seeing the completed image.  Will you be getting any RGB?

Cheers Dave. It depends on the weather/moon. I seem to have bad luck with RGB between focusing issues and wherever. I think my plan is Oiii and Sii and try that first.  I’m taking a few subs now but I suspect the patchy clouds might interfere.

Lovely detail there Adam. Great to take advantage of the clear sky with your dual rig. Did you get out again last night? Two clear nights in a row here in East Cork. Pity the moon was so bright.

Thanks Richard. Lovely and clear but boy the moon was bright last nights. I did Sii and Oiii last night. Pretty pointless but I just wanted to try my first image in SHO, even if data is poor.

Another smart looking image Adam....SHO maybe?

Yes 100% that is the plan. I ironed our some tilt issues with one scope last couple of nights. Spacing isn’t 100%, but can’t be more than 1/2mm in it.
